Can anyone stop the beast? WWE has posted a new video to their YouTube channel in which they show the full match between Brock Lesnar, Kane and Braun Strowman for the Universal Championship from the 2018 Royal Rumble event. Lesnar defeated both of his opponents to retain the championship.
You can see the match in its entirety below:
The home of ECW became Suplex City during Royal Rumble’s 30th anniversary, where Brock Lesnar overpowered Braun Strowman and Kane to retain the coveted Universal Championship.
Taking full advantage of the no-holds-barred atmosphere — all-too-appropriate in the birthplace of Extreme — these three juggernauts wielded chairs, tables, and steel steps in the night’s most barbaric clash by far.
After obliterating all three announce tables at ringside, the gladiators, mercifully, reentered the ring, where The Monster Among Men looked to put Lesnar away with multiple ring-shaking Running Powerslams. Strowman seemed primed to end the reign of The Conqueror and claim his first championship in WWE, but The Big Red Machine targeted The Monster Among Men with a succession of steel chair strikes.
After the masked menace knocked a dazed Strowman from the apron to the floor, Lesnar took advantage of the momentary distraction by hitting Kane with a wince-inducing F-5 onto a steel chair. Three seconds later, Lesnar was declared the victor and, by extension, the most dominant titan on Raw.
I know that everyone, including myself at times, gives WWE a lot of flack for keeping the Universal Championship on The Beast when he is only a part-time superstar. However, every time that he is in the ring, he gets a major reaction and he is very good at what he does. So, is the company really doing the fans a disservice by putting their title on a believable champion?
