Triple H made a rare appearance on WWE Raw and set down a huge stipulation for one of the bouts at WWE Crown Jewel!
Brock Lesnar and Bobby Lashley have been at each other’s throats since Lesnar made his return to the red brand on October 10th. He hadn’t been seen since his loss to Roman Reigns at SummerSlam in a Last Man Standing match, but on WWE Raw’s season premiere, he made an emphatic statement when he attacked then-United States Champion Bobby Lashley.
Not only did Lesnar deliver multiple F5’s on that occasion, he also locked in a Kimura, which left Lashley unable to apply the Hurt Lock to Seth Rollins during their United States Championship match later in the night. Rollins was able to defeat Lashley on that occasion and win the United States Championship following multiple Stomps to the Almighty.
The next week, the two men were involved in a huge brawl at the start of Raw. Lesnar was absent from the show on October 24th.
On the Halloween edition of Monday Night Raw, Bobby Lashley was scheduled for a sit down interview segment with Brock Lesnar; however, Lesnar was nowhere to be seen as the interview was being prepared. When Lashley began to address his situation, the sounds of Lesnar’s theme music played throughout the American Airlines Arena in Dallas, TX, and The Beast Incarnate made his way to the ring to say that he was here to do what Texans love to do: fight.
Lashley left his interview station and ran to the ring, and once again a brawl ensued. The chaos was so severe that multiple security personnel and WWE agents came out from behind the scenes to put an end to the violence. The brawl also caught the attention of WWE Chief Content Officer Triple H, who was unsuccessful at getting the two men to separate at first. However, he commanded attention when he declared that if they touched again before November 5th, their bout at WWE Crown Jewel would be called off.
