Brock Lesnar vs. Bobby Lashley next WWE title match direction

The next planned direction for new WWE Champion Brock Lesnar will be former champion Bobby Lashley, according to Dave Meltzer.

Meltzer said that as of Saturday night, that was the plan and the reason the Day 1 five-way title match was put together the way it was, especially with Lashley glaring at Lesnar after the latter had won the title.

During the match, Lesnar never hit an F5 on Lashley while Lashley had Lesnar in the Hurt Lock but had to be saved by Big E, seen above.

When it happens, it will be the first singles meeting between them. Both are also former MMA heavyweights as Lesnar held UFC gold and became one of the sport's biggest pay-per-view draws while Lashley ran up a 15-2 record, finishing up in Bellator MMA in 2016 with five straight stoppage wins.

Meltzer said there is still a planned Lesnar vs. Roman Reigns direction to include whatever was to take place Saturday when the long-reigning Universal Champion was forced to pull out due to contracting COVID-19. Lesnar was set to have another match with Reigns Saturday, but was added into the fatal four-way with Big E, Kevin Owens, Seth Rollins and Lashley instead.

Lashley is looking to regain the title he lost to Big E on the September 13th Raw where Big E gave his intent to cash in his Money in the Bank briefcase the day before. It's unknown what is next for the former champion who was in his first WWE title reign.
