A lot happened to shape the WrestleMania 32 card on Monday’s Raw. Everyone’s talking about Shane McMahon making a shocking return to WWE looking to make a power grab and ending up in a Hell in a Cell match with The Undertaker, but let’s not sleep on the other big announcement: Brock Lesnar is now officially set to face Dean Ambrose in a street fight. Our thoughts and prayers go out to Dean and his family in this trying time.
Here’s what you need to know: Lesnar and Ambrose were both involved in a triple threat match at Fastlane to name a new #1 contender for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship and Triple H’s opponent at WrestleMania. Roman Reigns won that match, because of course he did. Ambrose prevented Lesnar from winning by capitalizing on The Beast Incarnate’s two observable weaknesses: steel, and nut-shots. Lesnar responded to this by attacking Ambrose in the parking lot before Raw.
Ambrose ended up driving the ambulance he was taken away in back to the Joe Louis Arena before the end of Monday’s show to confront Brock, but … you know, he’d just been beaten to death in a parking lot, so he wasn’t able to do much. Brock ignored him at first, Ambrose demanded satisfaction, and Lesnar F-5’d him on the floor.
And that’s where we stand. A guy who claims to be indestructible vs. a guy who is really, really good at destroying. Who ya got?
