Brock Lesnar’s Original Elimination Chamber Plans Revealed
Brock Lesnar faced off with Bobby Lashley at the Elimination Chamber and while Lashley walked away with a disqualification win but things were meant to go differently.
The rubber match between Lesnar and Lashley saw The Beast Incarnate get trapped in The Hurt Lock with things looking helpless for him, he mule-kicked his opponent below the belt allowing Lashley to pick up the disqualification win.
With Bray Wyatt having challenged the winner of the bout on the night before’s SmackDown, a new report states that plans then changed at the eleventh hour as Brock Lesnar apparently had no interest in working with Wyatt.
Speaking on Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer explained that Brock Lesnar was originally set to defeat Lashley at Elimination Chamber before the introduction of Wyatt into the mix:
“Originally what was going to happen was Brock was beating Bobby Lashley at Elimination Chamber, and that was going to lead to Brock against Bray Wyatt at WrestleMania, and that’s why Bray Wyatt did that interview (calling out the winner). But after they did that, they had to change the finish.”
Brock Lesnar seemingly personally approved his WrestleMania 39 bout with Omos while there are suggestions that Vince McMahon “pushed through” plans for that bout.
