Brock Lesnar apparently went a bit too far at Elimination Chamber during a post match attack following the controversial finish of his match.
Going into to WWE Elimination Chamber on Saturday night, Brock Lesnar and Bobby Lashley were 1-1 in singles match. Lashley got a cheap win over Lesnar at Royal Rumble 2022 to become WWE Champion while Lesnar got his payback at Crown Jewel 2022 by countering a Hurt Lock into a pin. Lashley was dominant in that match, but Lesnar found a way to win.
At this year’s Royal Rumble, the Lashley-Lesnar rivalry picked up again with Lashley eliminating Lesnar from the match. After the elimination, Lesnar was angry at ringside and might have gone too far by tossing the hood of the announce table really far among other things. There were reports that Brock Lesnar had “backstage heat” for it although WWE Hall of Famer Booker T questioned the accuracy of that since Lesnar has a lot of freedom in WWE.
In their Elimination Chamber match, it was the usually hard-hitting battle between Lesnar and Lashley. Lesnar hit multiple F5’s while Lashley hit multiple Spears in the match. When Lashley applied the Hurt Lock submission this time, Lesnar had no counter like he did at Crown Jewel, so he just did a low blow back kick to Lashley’s groin. The referee Chad Patton was right there to see it, so Lesnar was disqualified for the blatant low blow.
After the bell rang, Brock Lesnar gave referee Chad Patton an F5 to huge cheers from the crowd. Lesnar also gave Lashley another F5. Lesnar sent Lashley out of the ring cleared off the commentary table and Lesnar gave Lashley an F5 through the commentary table. Lesnar looked up and stared at the WrestleMania sign. Lesnar pulled referee Chad Patton out of the ring and gave him an F5 onto the broken table. Lesnar left with the fans cheering him.
It appears that Brock Lesnar went a bit too far with his actions again because the second F5 on referee Patton wasn’t planned, according to Bryan Alvarez of the Wrestling Observer on his subscription feed. Lesnar did it just because he felt like it.
Due to the non-finish of the match, it could lead to yet another Lashley-Lesnar match at WrestleMania 39. However, Bray Wyatt did say he wanted the winner of Lesnar-Lashley, which is Lashley based on the disqualification win, so perhaps that is the direction at WrestleMania 39. We will have to keep watching on the road to WrestleMania.
