WWE issued the following press release announcing that Brock Lesnar will be defending the WWE championship at the April 5th Super Showdown event from Saudi Arabia. His opponent will be determined from a triple-threat matchup between Seth Rollins, Bobby Lashley, and Ricochet on tonight's episode of Monday Night Raw.
We already know that Royal Rumble winner Drew McIntyre has chosen to challenge Brock Lesnar at WrestleMania, but will The Beast still be WWE Champion come April 5? He'll first have to get through either Ricochet, Raw Tag Team Champion Seth Rollins or Bobby Lashley come WWE Super ShowDown on Thursday, Feb. 27. Those three men will complete in a Triple Threat Match on Raw to determine the next challenger for Lesnar's title. Ricochet played a critical role in Lesnar's elimination from the Royal Rumble Match, teeing him up for McIntyre's Claymore. The Monday Night Messiah has been running roughshod over Raw since forming his stable of disciples, while Lashley — a former Intercontinental and United States Champion — is no stranger to gold either.

Lesnar previously feuded with Rollins throughout most of 2019 culminating in a SummerSlam showdown that saw Rollins become Universal champion for the second time. Meanwhile, Ricochet had confronted the Beast on the Raw before the Royal Rumble, but suffered a low-blow and a beatdown for his troubles. He did gain some revenge during the actual Rumble match itself, low-blowing Lesnar right before he was eliminated by eventual winner, Drew McIntyre. Bobby Lashley has never faced Lesnar in a singles-matchup.
