It’s always fun for fans when unexpected superstars throw out strong words at others in WWE, but that doesn’t guarantee that a match will come from all the talk. With NXT becoming part of the main roster now, there are all sorts of dream match possibilities. Dio Maddin, a former announcer on Monday Night Raw, has an idea for a match in 2020, as his goal is to beat Brock Lesnar’s “b*tch a**.”
People make resolutions and goals for the new year, but not everyone follows through on them. Dio Maddin is certainly someone who has a very lofty goal for 2020, but it could end up bringing him more trouble than good.
When new announce teams were created in September for WWE’s “Premiere Week,” Dio Maddin joined the three-man team on Monday Night Raw. On the episode which aired on November 4, 2019, Brock Lesnar absolutely demolished Maddin by giving him an F-5 through the set.
The former NFL player appeared to have changed his mind about being an announcer after that, as he returned to the WWE Performance Center to begin training again. Now, he’s looking to restart his in-ring career, but he already has one goal that he wishes to accomplish in 2020.
On Saturday afternoon, Maddin hopped on his official Twitter account and issued a warning to the current WWE Champion who resides on Monday Night Raw.
Since everyone’s doing it, 2020 Goals:

After posting that tweet, one follower actually asked Maddin if he thought it was a smart move to tag Brock Lesnar.
“I can’t beat his b*tch a** if he doesn’t see it now can I?” Maddin responded.
Dio Maddin, whose real name is Brennan Williams, was drafted by the Houston Texans in the third round of the 2013 NFL Draft. He missed his entire rookie season with a knee injury and was released before the next season started.
Maddin went on to sign with the Jacksonville Jaguars and New England Patriots, but he never played a single game in the NFL. In 2016, he was signed by WWE and began training at the Performance Center to start wrestling on the NXT brand.
After doing some commentary work for 205 Live, Maddin moved up to the announce team for Monday Night Raw. That lasted two months before Brock Lesnar’s vicious attack in early November, and now, Dio Maddin is training to get back in the ring. While he may have to work his way up, he does have a lofty goal to get revenge on the WWE Champion in 2020.
