On the most recent episode of Monday Night RAW, Brock Lesnar unexpectedly made a comeback. It happened following Bray Wyatt‘s much anticipated comeback at Extreme Rules. He wasn’t there, though, on the red brand. He is a SmackDown employee. But when “The Beast Incarnate” returned, the crowd was not let down.

The Wrestling Observer’s Andrew Zarian tweeted that Lesnar’s comeback has pleased both WWE and the USA Network. Lesnar’s return to the program, according to Zarian, “felt like a’make good’ to many at USA” for not having Wyatt make a live appearance to take advantage of the post-Extreme Rules momentum.

On RAW, Lesnar made a significant comeback by focusing on Bobby Lashley and finishing him out with numerous F-5s. Coming up is WWE’s Crown Jewel in Saudi Arabia, and it appears the focus of that event will be a bout between Lesnar and Lashley. Following Lesnar’s savage attack, “The All Mighty” lost the WWE United States Championship match to Seth Rollins.

In contrast to the previous week’s 1,599,000 viewers, Brandon Thurston of Wrestlenomics reported that the October 10th broadcast of WWE Raw, which also had a D-Generation X celebration, attracted 1,824,000 viewers.

Brock Lesnar vs Bobby Lashley

Prior to his US Title defense against Seth “Freakin” Rollins on the October 10th Season Premiere of Raw in Brooklyn, Bobby Lashley was in the ring filming a pre-match promo. Brock Lesnar then made an unannounced appearance on Raw as he circled the ring with Lashley inside of it.

Lesnar received a roaring ovation from the audience. Lesnar: “Holy s**t, man!” Bobby Lashley and Brooklyn received good night wishes from Lesnar. Lesnar lifted up Lashley and delivered an F5 as he held up his US Championship. Lesnar then executed a German Suplex and an additional F5. Lashley’s left arm was also submitted by the Kimura Lock by Lesnar. It is not yet confirmed when both the men will face each other but one thing is sure, the clash between both the men is going to be epic.
