Bobby Lashley will face off against Brock Lesnar on Saturday November 5th at the Crown Jewel Premium Live Event.
Bobby Lashley, who was United States Champion at the time, called out challenger Seth Rollins on the October 10th episode of Raw. However, the callout was met by Brock Lesnar, who returned to WWE for the first time since SummerSlam, where The Beast would lose a Last Man Standing match against Roman Reigns. Lesnar would surprise attack Lashley, with the after effects causing Lashley to drop the US Title to Seth Rollins.
An incensed Lashley would open the October 17th Raw, calling out Lesnar and looking for retribution. Lashley would spear Lesnar through the barricade before returning to The Beast and slamming Lesnar on top of the WWE announce table. It was later announced on Raw that Lesnar and Lashley would collide once again at Crown Jewel.
This will be the second time that Bobby Lashley and Brock Lesnar have faced off in singles competition. The first match was at the 2022 Royal Rumble, where Lashley would defeat Lesnar and become the new WWE Champion following interference from Roman Reigns.
The updated line-up for Crown Jewel is as follows:
- Roman Reigns (c) vs. Logan Paul – Singles match for the WWE Undisputed Universal Championship.
- Bobby Lashley vs. Brock Lesnar
- AJ Styles, Karl Anderson and Luke Gallows vs. Finn Balor, Damian Priest and Dominik Mysterio
