WWE legend Brock Lesnar was left reeling on Raw after his explosive weigh in with Omos.

The Beast is set to battle the Nigerian Giant this weekend at WrestleMania 39, with the battle of the behemoths set to be part of a stacked card on night one (April 1).

On Monday night, Omos and his manager MVP came out first for the official weigh in with the latter trash talking and hyping up his 7 foot 3 client, who topped the scales at 410lbs (29 stone).

Lesnar was out next, and wasted no time taking the fight to his rival as he showed no desire to take to the scales himself.

Instead, he charged across the ring, repeatedly trying to knock the towering star off his feet to no avail.

The former world champion soon changed tactics, hoisting up the scales and preparing to use them to take his opponent down, but Omos stopped him with a huge kick.

Lesnar hit the deck and escaped to the ringside area as the former basketball player charged with the scales himself, leaning on the barricade and looking more flustered than fans are used to in a long time.

Despite some scepticism from fans when the match was announced, plenty of people now seem to be won over after the interactions between the two.

One viewer predicted: ‘This is going to create a #WrestleMania moment that will be played in future intros for years to come. That’s what this match is. It’s gonna be fast and it’s gonna have a MOMENT. Lesnar lifting up Omos and hitting him with the F5.’

Backstage on Raw, MVP later teased: ‘Brock Lesnar grabbed a weapon to try to attack The Nigerian Giant. That tells me that Brock Lesnar was scared. Have you ever seen Brock Lesnar grab a weapon? Never!

‘Brock Lesnar knows that he can’t suplex The Nigerian Giant. He can’t F5 The Nigerian Giant. He can’t do anything do The Nigerian Giant that he’s ever done before. The only thing Brock Lesnar can do to The Nigerian Giant is lose to him… at WrestleMania.’

WrestleMania Goes Hollywood on April 1 and 2 at 1am. Tune in via the WWE Network.
