WWE Nixed RAW Dark Match Due To Brock Lesnar’s Return


A promoted dark match that was scheduled for after this week’s WWE Monday Night RAW TV tapings never happened due to the return of Brock Lesnar.

Lesnar returned in the closing moments of this week’s RAW, attacking U.S. Champion Austin Theory and Bobby Lashley.


The Beast Incarnate placed Theory on top of Lashley, allowing the U.S. Champion to retain in their No-Disqualification title match.

According to Mike Johnson, the advertised post-show Street Fight between Seth Rollins and Austin Theory was nixed due to Lesnar’s return and attack on Theory.

Many have predicted that Lesnar will face Lashley at WWE WrestleMania 39, as both men have a (controversial) win over the other.

Lashley defeated Lesnar at last year’s Royal Rumble pay-per-view event thanks to an assist from Roman Reigns, while Brock won at Crown Jewel in a botched pinfall.
