Report on why Brock Lesnar vs. Bobby Lashley wasn’t booked for WWE Wrestlemania 39

As previously noted, both Bobby Lashley and Steve Austin were rumored opponents for Brock Lesnar at WWE Wrestlemania 39. In an update, Justin Barrasso of noted the following regarding why Lesnar vs. Lashley didn’t happen at Wrestlemania 39…

“Initially, Lesnar was slated to fight Bobby Lashley at the event, Sports Illustrated learned, but that was moved to February (in a finish that protected both men) at Elimination Chamber so Lesnar could then prepare for a program against Steve Austin. Yet WWE and Austin never came to terms. Whether that happens with Austin and a different opponent is yet to be determined.”

After Austin seemingly declined the match, Bray Wyatt was reportedly going to be Lesnar’s opponent for Wrestlemania but it’s believed that Lesnar nixed the idea just prior to the Chamber PLE.

Lesnar vs. Omos is now set for Wrestlemania. The match seems to have drawn interest from fans as the live crowd chanted “holy sh*t” when the two were in the ring together. The YouTube video of their confrontation from the March 13th 2023 edition of WWE RAW has over a million views.
