Who will face Brock Lesnar at WWE Royal Rumble 2022?


Brock Lesnar is the new WWE Champion and a number of updates relating to "The Beast" have actually since appeared online ahead of tonight's episode of Monday Night Raw. The first, via PWInsider, is that Lesnar has actually been shifted to Raw's internal roster behind the scenes, in spite of being placed as a free agent onscreen thanks to negotiations via Paul Heyman. 

The second is that Lesnar is anticipated to make some sort of appearence on the Red Brand tonight, despite the fact that WWE has yet to formally reveal anything (stay tuned)..
Lastly, there's the matter of who will get the first chance at Lesnar's title. The report is still that he'll wind up facing Roman Reigns at WrestleMania 38 in April and he pinned the previous champ, Big E, throughout the five-way centerpiece of Saturday night's Day 1 pay-per-view. 

According to both Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer and DAZN's Steven Muehlhausen, Lesnar will face Bobby Lashley in a long-awaited dream match at the 2022 Royal-Rumble occasion at the end of the month.

" With Lesnar having won the title, the next step is Lesnar vs. Lashley," Meltzer said on a current Wrestling Observer Radio (h/t Inside the Ropes). "You could tell, at the end of the show, they teased that glare with Lashley and whatever like that, and that was the last scene. The match was booked particularly for that direction. Big E was the one that was pinned because if Big E wasn't pinned, and clearly, you 'd want to go with Lesnar and Big E.

But, the decision, for whatever reason, and the reason is that the people who are making the decisions felt that there was a more valuable match, went with Lesnar and Lashley.".A match between Lesnar and Lashley is something fans have honestly asked about for years, with the latter frequently getting asked about it in interviews.
