Brock Lesnar is the WWE Champion, but Bobby Lashley might have a valid complaint as he didn’t factor into the result of the match.

Bobby Lashley was taken out of the match after Seth Rollins powerbombed Austin Theory into his pod, and it was later explained that Lashley was ruled out due to concussion protocol. Lashley was supposed to enter the match fifth, but Lesnar ultimately kicked through his own pod and proceeded to make quick work of the other four opponents in the match.

Lesnar finally eliminated Theory, who tried to climb through the top of the cage, by hitting an F-5 off of one of the pods to win the title.

Brock Lesnar will now move on to face Roman Reigns at WrestleMania, a match already confirmed after Lesnar won the 2022 Men’s Royal Rumble. Lesnar elected to challenge Reigns for his WWE Universal Championship, and now WWE is advertising Lesnar vs. Reigns as a “Champion vs. Champion” match.
