Brock Lesnar Returns To The Ring At WWE Live Event In Chicago (Video and Photos)

Brock Lesnar

The Beast is back.

Universal Champion Brock Lesnar made headlines when he and his advocate Paul Heyman did not appear on Raw this past Monday as originally scheduled, infuriating his WrestleMania 34 opponent Roman Reigns in the process.

Lesnar, however, changed the narrative a bit when he returned to action Saturday night in Chicago, Illinois. In his first in-ring action since the Royal Rumble pay-per-view this past January, Lesnar beat Kane in 35 seconds.

That’s right, 35 seconds.

Here is the match in its entirety.

Earlier in the week, Lesnar and his advocate Paul Heyman did not appear on Raw as originally scheduled. His absence led to an angle where his WrestleMania 34 opponent, Roman Reigns, revealed that Lesnar never came to the arena for their scheduled confrontation. Reigns called Lesnar “an entitled piece of crap who hides behind his contract” and lambasted him for what he claimed was a disrespectful attitude toward fans and WWE.
