Like it or not, Brock Lesnar is back in the WWE and he now has a guaranteed title shot at any moment he chooses.
Lesnar made his return to WWE during the annual Money In The Bank ladder match on Sunday night, where he went on to grab the coveted briefcase that houses a championship contract. Despite not being an official entrant in the match, The Beast Incarnate made his shocking appearance just as Ali was scaling the ladder en route to the briefcase.
Sami Zayn, who earned a spot in the Money In the Bank bout by defeating Braun Strowman on last week’s episode of Monday Night Raw, was attacked by an unknown assailant prior to the MITB match last night. Naturally, Strowman was the prime suspect and Triple H forced him to leave the arena, although The Monster Among Men denied any involvement. It later became clear that Lesnar was actually the one who attacked Zayn, thus opening up a spot in the eight-man ladder match.
Lesnar, who has not competed in WWE since he dropped the Universal championship to Seth Rollins at Wrestlemania 35 on April 7, is scheduled for the upcoming Saudi Arabia “Super ShowDown” event, where it appears he’ll be challenging Rollins in a rematch.
WWE Super ShowDown will stream live on WWE Network and be available on pay-per-view outside of the Middle East on June 7 at 2pm ET.
