Brock Lesnar to appear in WWE Royal Rumble 2023 after decimating Bobby Lashley on SmackDown

The upcoming WWE main event, The Royal Rumble, is generating unprecedented levels of excitement among wrestling fans all around the world. This is mostly due to the fact that many legendary wrestling superstars will return and compete in the event including Brock Lesner.

Since it was first held in 1988, the Royal Rumble has been considered by many to be among the most exciting and entertaining pay-per-view events that World Wrestling Entertainment has ever produced. The 36th iteration of the annual wrestling event will take place at the Alamodome in San Antonio, Texas, on January 28 this year.

This year’s Royal Rumble will feature many of professional wrestling’s biggest names, including former heavyweight champion Brock Lesnar. In Laredo, Texas, on Friday Night SmackDown, Brock confirmed his presence in the Royal Rumble by attacking Bobby Lashley with an F5  and telling Lashley, “See you at the Royal Rumble, Bobby.” 

Dave Meltzer, an American journalist who contributes to the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, believes that there is a chance that Brock Lesnar and Bobby Lashley would compete against one another in the future. If WWE has this plan, then Brock’s attack on Lashley was only the beginning of his conflict with Lashley.

”The story is that match was pitched to Austin as recently as a few weeks ago. We’ve been told that the main idea dating back for Austin this year was a match with Lesnar, with the original hope and idea being Austin vs. Lesnar and Reigns vs. The Rock as the main events for the two nights,” said Dave Meltzer.

After Brocks’s participation was confirmed, there are currently only twelve spots available for the upcoming Royal Rumble. The remaining positions are taken by well-known wrestlers like Kofi Kingston, Santos Escobar, Ricochet, Austin Theory, Seth Rollins, Bobby Lashley, Baron Corbin, Rey Mysterio, GUNTHER, Cody Rhodes, Omos, Drew McIntyre, Sheamus, Braun Strowman, Karrion Kross, Dominik Mysterio, and The Miz.

Who do you think will triumph in the most thrilling wrestling event of the year?
