With their WWE Championship match official for the Royal Rumble, Brock Lesnar and Bobby Lashley went face-to-face on last night's Raw.
Lashley interrupted Lesnar at the start of the show. Lashley said it was an honor to be able to look Lesnar in the eye and tell him that, for 20 years, he's been ducking Lashley and running from him.
Lesnar claimed that he didn't know who Lashley was until Day 1. Lesnar said he's been winning championships for the last 20 years -- and the fact they've never had a one-on-one match is Lashley's fault. Lesnar said Lashley didn't climb the ladder of success and enter the same arena as him until now. Lesnar told Lashley that, if they had faced each other, he already would have beaten Lashley and this match wouldn't be happening.
Lesnar told a knock-knock joke asking who Lashley was. He also called Lashley a Brock Lesnar wannabe.
Before Lashley had made his way out to the ring, he told Cedric Alexander and Shelton Benjamin backstage that The Hurt Business weren't back together. Lashley instructed them to get the hell out of here and said that he works alone. Alexander and Benjamin tried to attack Lashley at the end of his segment with Lesnar, but Lashley destroyed both of them.
A triple threat match in last night's main event confirmed Becky Lynch's challenger for the Royal Rumble. Doudrop defeated Liv Morgan and Bianca Belair to get the Raw Women's Championship shot.
Lynch interfered in the match as Belair was on the verge of winning. Doudrop then gave Morgan a Banzai Drop to get the victory.
Lynch acted like she was going to shake Doudrop's hand after the match, but she slapped Doudrop in the face instead. Lynch went to give Doudrop the Manhandle Slam, but Doudrop powered out of it and sent her out of the ring.
