His win came as a shocker to the WWE Universe as the management added him into the match mere hours before the PPV because Roman Reigns was sidelined because of COVID-19 protocols.

However, Lesnar’s latest win has made him the 5th person in the company’s history to win the WWE Championship in three different decades. The remaining four individuals are the ones who changed the wrestling industry on so many levels.

However, his latest title win added him to the legendary list of the superstars who have won the WWE Championship in three different decades. Hulk Hogan, The Rock, Randy Orton, Triple H, and now Brock Lesnar are the only WWE superstars to have achieved such a rare feat.

This makes Brock’s already Hall of Fame-worthy career a class apart.

Brock Lesnar might have some dream matches?

Nobody expected to see Brock win the title at the inaugural Day 1 PPV as he was having a lengthy feud with Roman Reigns.

However, with Roman out of action for a while, this might be a great opportunity for WWE to create some dream matches.

Now, WWE teased the fans with a Bobby Lashley and Brock Lesnar angle at the PPV, which has main event match implications in itself. But Lesnar only has six matches left on his existing contract.

This means that the company has to carefully decide about Lesnar’s upcoming matches. However, there are several superstars other than Bobby who can put classic matches with The Beast. Just like Sami Zayn.

Right after Lesnar’s win, Zayn took to Twitter and teased a match against The Beast.
