WWE News: Ricochet wins on Raw to set up Super ShowDown match with Brock Lesnar for WWE Championship

Brock Lesnar drops Ricochet with an F5 to end Raw

Brock Lesnar may be scheduled to defend his WWE Championship against Royal Rumble winner Drew McIntyre at WrestleMania 36, but if you hadn't noticed - there's quite a long time until that event.

There's so much time that WWE will be running two special events between now and April 5, and the first one is coming up in just over three weeks time.

The roster will be flying out to Saudi Arabia once again and Super ShowDown is returning, although it won't be in Jeddah like it was last June, this time it is in the nation's capital of Riyadh.

Saudi Arabia usually gets the big attractions, and they pay an awful lot to make that happen, so it was inevitable that Lesnar would be making a defence of his championship.

And to determine a challenger for the belt, a Triple Threat match would happen on Raw, pitting a big guy in the form of Bobby Lashley against the 'Monday Night Messiah' Seth Rollins, and the man who assisted McIntyre in eliminating Lesnar from the Rumble - Ricochet.

Whilst no-one really wanted to see Rollins and Lesnar go at it again, the prospect of Lashley v Lesnar is intriguing, as the former has stated a match against Brock is the main reason he returned to WWE.

But it's not happening at Super ShowDown, as it was Ricochet who ended up with the victory.

With Rollins being involved in the match and it being no disqualification, carnage ensued towards the end with his new faction getting involved, which prompted back-up in the form of Kevin Owens and the Viking Raiders.

Once the ring was left with the original three men, a huge double suplex off the turnbuckle saw Rollins out of the picture and Lashley prone, leaving Ricochet to hit his patented 630 to set up a dream match with Lesnar.

The champion was almost immediately in the ring as soon as the bell sounded for the end of the match, hitting Ricochet with an F5 to a chorus of boos from the Salt Lake City crowd.

Whilst Ricochet has absolutely zero chance of winning at Super ShowDown, it'll be an extremely interesting first time ever match to watch, especially as Lesnar's matches with smaller superstars have been entertaining in years gone by.

But Lesnar is still on a collision course with McIntyre for WrestleMania, and no-one is going to dethrone him before then - surely?
