This week’s WWE RAW was loaded with some good matches and surprises. With that in mind, take a look at what went right on this week’s show.
# 5 on our things WWE RAW got right after Elimination Chamber – Brock Lesnar did not fall for Paul Heyman’s mind games
Brock Lesnar opened up WWE RAW after his massive victory at Elimination Chamber. The Beast Incarnate interacted with fans to show his babyface side as the crowd chanted in his favor.
Lesnar prepared to cut a promo, but an old friend interrupted him. Paul Heyman walked out as fans chanted against him. Roman Reigns’ special counsel looked to play some mind games with the WWE Champion.
Heyman talked trash before informing Lesnar that he would have to defend his title at Madison Square Garden before going to WrestleMania 38 to face The Tribal Chief. He told the champion that Bobby Lashley would be his challenger on the show. If Lashley cannot compete at the show, Heyman said he would ensure that another challenger is picked to face The Beast Incarnate.
Lesnar was at least bothered by Heyman’s remarks and promised to be on SmackDown to get in Reigns’ face himself.
It was a good segment that ensured Lesnar did not have to work alone on the mic. Heyman was excellent as always and delivered the message loud and clear. The segment helped build hype for the upcoming episode of SmackDown, followed by the show at MSG.
