WWE Legend MVP spoke to Ryan Satin about the situation. He revealed that he believes Lashley will come out of this match as the winner. He compared Lashley vs Lesnar to boxing’s Mike Tyson vs Buster Douglas. The way Douglas shocked everyone by defeating Tyson, Lashley will shock everyone once he defeats Lesnar.

“Nobody expected Buster Douglas to beat Mike Tyson. I firmly believe that Mike Tyson went into that match looking past Buster Douglas. I think in this case Brock Lesnar, at least based on his words, called Bobby a ‘Brock Lesnar Wannabe’ and referring to him as ‘Bobby who?’ And making him the b*tt of his knock knock joke. I think Brock Lesnar is in for a very rude awakening at the Royal Rumble.”

The majority of predictions claim that Bobby Lashley will not win at Royal Rumble 2022, but if he does, this will be his second run as world champion.

“At the end of the day, I believe whole heartedly that Bobby will beat Brock. It comes down to hunger. I don’t know that Brock’s hungry anymore. I mean, I have said before, I think it was Mike Tyson that said, ‘it’s hard to get up at 6 AM and go out in that road work when you’re sleeping on silk sheets’. You know, what’s Brock’s motivation? Bobby has a motivation. He wants to prove to Brock and to everyone else that Bobby is no Brock-wannabe. Bobby is more than that. Bobby is The Almighty.” H/t Out of Character with Ryan Satin.

Now, there is a higher chance Brock Lesnar may leave the match as the winner considering WWE wants to put Roman Reigns against Brock Lesnar at WrestleMania 38.
