7 Ups & 4 Downs From WWE Royal Rumble 2023

6. Bobby Lashley’s Revenge

WWE Royal Rumble 2023 Bobby Lashley Brock Lesnar

Brock Lesnar being eliminated from the Rumble should always be a big moment, but it's probably deceptively tricky to include the 'Beast' without having him dominate. So, with that in mind, it was nice to see creative give Lesnar his usual suplex tour then have Bobby Lashley chuck him out.

That was revenge for recent attacks.

Bobby eliminating Brock sets the scene nicely for their coming rematch. WWE have two choices here; they can either power through that at Elimination Chamber, or keep it back for WrestleMania 39 if they don't have anything better for either man to do.

Put it this way: If Brock isn't working Steve Austin, then have him brawl with Lashley for a solid 10-15 minutes on the undercard. Their combined star power should help beef out one of the nights in April, and it'd be a suitable excuse to get both on the marquee.
