Brock Lesnar On Course To Break Surprising WWE Record

Brock Lesnar

Brock Lesnar is set to be on Monday Night Raw over the summer and if The Beast Incarnate somehow competes on any of those shows, he’d be breaking one of the more surprising records in WWE history.

Brock Lesnar looks set to be part of at least three Raw shows in the build-up to SummerSlam where he is expected to face Cody Rhodes once again.

According to WrestlingStats & Info, if Brock Lesnar competes on any of those Raws that he is scheduled to be at he would then take the record for the longest time between bouts on WWE’s flagship show. That record wouldn’t have been achieved if Lesnar had allowed his scheduled tag team match with Cody Rhodes against Roman Reigns & Solo Sikoa on the night after WrestleMania to go ahead.

The longest time between matches on Raw record currently belongs to Flash Flanagan who had a gap of 20 years, 10 months, and 14 days between matches on the show. Flanagan challenged Brian Christopher for the WWE Light Heavyweight Championship on Raw back on the 24th of November 1997 and incredibly appeared again on the 8th of October 2018 under the name Gregor Falcon as part of a bizarre battle royal won by Kurt Angle who was dressed as The Conquistador.

The last time Brock Lesnar competed on Monday Night Raw was back on the 22nd of July 2002 when he defeated Tommy Dreamer in a Singapore Cane match. Lesnar soon became part of the SmackDown brand exclusively and had the majority of his WWE matches on that show. In fact, Lesnar has only ever competed on Raw 12 times for a total duration of 61 minutes and 4 seconds which is less time than Bob Backlund spent in the 1993 Royal Rumble match.
