However, this was not a straightforward task for ‘The Beast Incarnate’ as all the other four men put up a splendid fight. In the end, noting mattered as Lesnar powered his way through with german suplexes and brutal F5s.

Eventually, the WWE Universe roared once Brock Lesnar lifted the WWE title. Among the people in attendance to watch this event was Olympic Gold medalist Gable Steveson.

The Olympian took to Twitter and uploaded a picture of Brock holding the title on his lap. This was just moments after Brock had pinned Big E for the Championship.

What’s more interesting is that Gable himself has signed a contract for Vince McMahon’s company.

This tweet seems out of respect as Gable has openly admitted that he admires the work ethic of Brock Lesnar, and The Beast has vouched for Gable several times.

 

Now, WWE is known to use real-life stories and make a storyline for the WWE Universe. So yes, the fans would love to see the athletes square off inside the WWE Ring.

What is next for Brock Lesnar?

Now, it is known that Brock was not originally planned to appear in the match. However, this last-minute change has left quite some doors open for ‘The Beast’.

As reported, Brock Lesnar had eight matches in his latest WWE contract. With two matches out of the way, Lesnar now only has six matches left before he sees himself out of WWE.

Lashley and Lesnar both share similar success in WWE as well inside the octagon and also in amateur wrestling. Now, with Roman Reigns out of action for the foreseeable future, a match between Lesnar and Lashley or Lesnar and Steveson could happen.
