Royal Rumble result: Bobby Lashley is the new WWE Champ after Brock Lesnar is screwed by Paul Heyman and Roman Reigns

BOBBY LASHLEY is the new WWE Champion after Brock Lesnar was screwed by Paul Heyman and Roman Reigns.

The Beast Incarnate looked set to defend his championship before the Tribal Chief arrived to cost him big time and set up a potential bumper WrestleMania main event.

The two powerhouses got straight to it with a test of strength with neither monster moving an inch.

But Lesnar got the advantage with a German Suplex – although the challenger was straight back to his feet and then performing one of his own.

The suplexes continued with the champ in charge, but soon a slug fest broke out before the challenger hit two spears after escaping an F5.

Lesnar went to the outside to get his breath, and he managed to move just in time to avoid another spear as Lashley went crashing through the barricade.

But the Almighty was quickly back to his feet and sent the Beast Incarnate into the ring post before the action returned to the ring.

Lesnar recovered and began dishing out his trademark suplexes before going for another F5.

However, he was caught by Lashley as the challenger locked in the Hurt Lock as the former UFC heavyweight title holder began to fade fast.

Lesnar reversed Lashley into the corner but the pair crushed the referee, before the official was caught again when the champ finally delivered an F5.

With no ref to make the count, Reigns came racing into the ring and speared Lesnar.

The Universal Champion was then handed Lesnar’s WWE Title by Paul Heyman and struck the Beast Incarnate straight in the face with the belt.

That allowed Lashley to climb on top of Lesnar and get the pin – but the Beast Incarnate would have the last laugh as he went on to win the Royal Rumble to earn a title shot at WrestleMania,

It comes after Reigns was disqualified but retained his Universal Title earlier in the night against Seth Rollins.
