Brock Lesnar and Stone Cold Steve Austin WrestleMania match scrapped

Brock Lesnar made a shocking return to the WWE on RAW XXX 30th Anniversary Show. With WrestleMania 39 just around the corner, what does WrestleMania have in store for the Beast Incarnate?

The Almighty and The Beast’s Fates Are Intertwined

Brock Lesnar returned to the WWE to cost Bobby Lashley a victory over the United States Champion Austin Theory. Lesnar versus Lashley was always a dream match for many fans and the two finally locked horns at Crown Jewel last year. The two men did not waste any time and pulled out finisher moves from their artillery at the very outset. Lesnar picked up a lucky win and barely edged past the volatile Lashley.

It was a déjà vu moment for Lashley on RAW XXX, as it was Brock Lesnar who previously cost him his US Championship. He left Lashley defenseless after a severe beatdown, inviting Seth Rollins to capitalize and bring a halt to Lashley’s reign as the United States Championship. On RAW XXX, it was Lesnar again who cost Lashley the United States Championship.

Going ahead, Bobby Lashley seems to be the opponent for the returning Brock Lesnar at WrestleMania. But that wasn’t always the plan.
