Brock Lesnar retained his title belt at WWE Royal Rumble 2018 against Braun Strowman and Kane. Lesnar delivered an F5 to Kane to keep his WWE Universal belt. Lesnar had a particularly vicious shot on Strowman.
After three straight failed attempts to become Universal Champion, however, WWE is close to ruining what makes Strowman so special in the first place: He’s indestructible.

Braun Strowman getting up and turning to see Brock Lesnar blankly staring at him while standing on the ring steps is probably the funniest thing I’ve ever seen, I love this match

The squared circle is certainly no stranger to the phrase “the irresistible force meeting the immovable object.” However, at the 2018 Royal Rumble, not one, not two, but three immoveable objects will be facing off when Brock Lesnar puts his Universal Championship on the line against Braun Strowman and Kane in a Triple Threat Match.
Though a knockdown drag-out showdown between Strowman and Kane on the Dec. 11 episode of Raw was meant to decide Lesnar’s pay-per-view opponent, Raw General Manager Kurt Angle should have known that the hard-hitting bout was destined to descend into all-out chaos. On the other hand, perhaps he did have such an instinct because, after the match ended without a winner, Angle can now offer the WWE Universe a colossal free-for-all pitting the three forces of nature against each other in one historic clash.
Certainly, Lesnar has earned every bit of his place of prominence by outbattling some of the biggest names of WWE to stand alone at the top of the mountain. Enter Braun Strowman, an absolutely dominant Superstar who has left a path of destruction in arenas all over the world. Moreover, when he battled The Beast for the Universal Championship at WWE No Mercy, there was no fear in his eyes nor in his actions.
However, despite The Monster Among Men’s penchant for brutality, it would be a huge mistake to discount the 320-pound-plus demon in the room. After all, Kane is the most sinister Superstar in the fray and boasts an extensive history of in-ring destruction. Nothing is off limits for Kane when it comes to getting the best of his adversaries, and the ruthless Big Red Machine will certainly be at his most sadistic while battling for the Universal Title.
