Brock Lesnar's Opponent At WWE Super ShowDown Confirmed

He is Lesnar's One And Only challenger...

Ahead of last night's episode of Monday Night Raw, WWE announced Seth Rollins, Bobby Lashley and Ricochet would face off in a Triple Threat match to determine the number one contender for Brock Lesnar's WWE Championship.

Jerry "The King" Lawler had seemingly written off Ricochet's chances before the match even began as he declared only Lashley and Rollins had a chance of defeating The Beast Incarnate.

Ricochet ignored Lawler, however, and looked set to emerge victorious as he set up Rollins for The 630. Before The One And Only could connect with his finisher, The Monday Night Messiah's disciples made their way to the ring and forced Ricochet from the top rope. Buddy Murphy and The Authors Of Pain then attacked Rollins' opponents until Kevin Owens and Erik ran to the ringside area and forced their rivals to head backstage.

With Rollins now alone, the match became a fair fight once again and The Beast Slayer was quickly put out of commission after a Superplex from Ricochet. The former Lucha Underground star then kicked Lashley to the mat and connected with The 630 to win the match and become the number one contender for Lesnar's title.

The Beast wasted little time exacting vengeance on his future opponent as he charged to the ring and delivered a hellacious F-5 to end the broadcast.

Ricochet and Lesnar have gotten to know each other quite well in recent weeks. On the February 20 episode of Raw, the former United States Champion challenged Lesnar to a match, but only embarrassed himself as Lesnar quickly floored him with one kick. Ricochet then took his revenge during the Men's Royal Rumble match. After the WWE Champion devoured his first 13 opponents, Ricochet Low Blowed him which allowed Drew McIntyre to connect with the Claymore Kick and eliminate The former UFC Heavyweight Champion from the match.

Brock Lesnar's and Ricochet's rivalry will now come to a head at Super ShowDown on February 27 in Saudi Arabia as they face off for the WWE Championship.
