Later that night in the main event of WWE Day 1, Brock Lesnar captured the WWE Championship at Day 1 by defeating then Champion Big E, Bobby Lashley, Kevin Owens, and Seth Rollins.

The Hurt Lock

Match Prediction

Brock Lesnar has never had a short-lived title run, so it is unlikely to happen now. But, you never know with the WWE. Also, Brock Lesnar has never faced Bobby Lashley one-on-one. This is a main event caliber match and we all would hope that it would live it up to those standards.

We all know that Brock Lesnar is a Beast but we should not forget that Bobby Lashley is also called “The Dominator”. The match would have a lot of signature moves delivered and it would be interesting watching Brock Lesnar in the Hurt Lock. And how many F-5 would Lashley survive? Will Paul Heyman turn on Brock Lesnar?

No matter what the prediction of the match is, it should be one to remember. Our prediction is a clean victory for Brock Lesnar.
