The fan jokingly remarked, “Lesnar is going to return and beat both of them.” It seems as MVP and Bobby waited backstage, this remark caught the eye of the former.

MVP retweeted the original and wrote, “Lesnar FEARS Lashley.” WWE has shown clips of MVP and Lashley talking to each other, and discussing something throughout the PPV. Hence, this rebuttal sent the fans into a frenzy.

The ‘Beast Incarnate’ left WWE last year after he lost the WWE Championship to Drew McIntyre at WrestleMania 36. As a part of tonight’s match, Drew can not challenge Lashley’s title again if he loses.

If the Scottish Warrior indeed loses the match, Brock Lesnar would be an impeccable replacement for him. WWE has apparently promised Bobby Lashley a showdown with Lesnar.
