Jeet Rama put on an impressive performance against AJ Styles at WWE Superstar Spectacle in January 2021. He delivered an impressive set of suplexes that had the Phenomenal One rocked. From the Indian state of Haryana, the grappler has picked someone much higher than his weight class.

In an interview with Saurabh Atri of Wrestle Square, also known as Mr. Positivity, Jeet Rama called out the Beast Incarnate. This might be a meal too big for the inexperienced Rama to bite, but his future holds great things.

At six-foot four, 235 pounds, Jeet Rama is quite an impressive specimen. He beat Olympian Chad Gable in his NXT live event debut, and picked up a win over the Miztourage, Bo Dallas and Curtis Axel at a live event in New Delhi. If that doesn’t impress you, it took Omos’ help for AJ Styles to beat him this January.

Brock Lesnar might suplex him out of his boots, but it would be an amazing sight to see Jeet Rama toss the Beast with a suplex of his own.

The Beast’s WWE situation

In August 2020, Brock Lesnar’s WWE contract ended. His WrestleMania main event against Drew McIntyre was his last match with the company, and it might be for the foreseeable future. However, WWE has always brought back the Beast when they want him most.

With WrestleMania on the horizon, Brock Lesnar is one of the heavily favoured superstars to return for WrestleMania. Many fans have claimed they want to see Brock Lesnar return to take on the new WWE Champion Bobby Lashley. Lashley vs Lesnar is a match fans have wanted to see for years, but their timing has never synced.

With Lashley returning in 2018, he came close to facing Lesnar, but Roman Reigns beat the All Mighty to head to SummerSlam. Therefore, booking Lashley vs Lesnar for WrestleMania makes sense, given how much Lashley has called him out, and how much money that match would make for WWE if it happens at WrestleMania.
