On Saturday, Brock Lesnar won the 2022 men’s Royal Rumble match by entering at no.30 as a surprise entrant. However, that wasn’t the original plan.

According to PWInsider, Matt Riddle was supposed to win the match. They stated,

Plans were changed over the course of the week a ton of times with the final decision to have Brock Lesnar enter and win as a surprise.  At one point, there was a pitch for Randy Orton to win as well, but Riddle was the frontrunner until the switch to Brock was made.

WrestleVotes reported that WWE had plans for a singles match between Randy Orton and Riddle at SummerSlam in August. They stated,

WWE had plans since the pairing began last spring for Riddle vs Randy Orton at SummerSlam, which didn’t happen. Plan was to hold off til Mania. I’m told now only a handful of creative members want to spilt them, with the idea that if the match happens, it should be for the WWE title
