Backstage news on Brock Lesnar’s opponent for Royal Rumble

Brock Lesnar Universal Championship

WWE left fans guessing about Brock Lensar’s next opponent when they ended the #1 contenders match between Braun Strowman and Kane in a no contests via a double count-out.

Dave Meltzer discussed this on the latest episode of Wrestling Observer Radio and revealed who is going to challenge the Beast Incarnate at the upcoming Royal Rumble PPV.

According to Dave, Lesnar will have not one but two opponents and he’ll face both Kane and Braun Strowman in a triple threat match at the upcoming event.

Meltzer further claimed that at this point WWE wants to protect both Lesnar and Strowman so it’s expected that the Big Red Monster will take the pin in their upcoming bout.

As we noted before, Brock Lesnar will be returning to WWE Programming next week and it’d be interesting to see how Officials start the build for this match.

    I never thought I be saying this but I can’t wait for Roman Reigns to be Universals Champion. Because at least a guy who respect the wrestling business. I also don’t think WWE will lose a step once Brock Lesnar is gone.

  • Darrin Tyler

    And he’ll win. And will continue winning until Wrestlemania. So who cares who he faces??? I already know he’s going to win.

  • Nicholas Giambattista

    I probably hoping for a different outcome. But I also think they will move Strowman to Smackdown at the next shake up. When he gets to Smackdown he will win the WWE championship right away.

    They are absolutely not putting the universal title on Strowman at the Royal Rumble. Kane is only in this match to eat the pin after he takes an F5 from lesnar. This is being done to protect Braun from Lesnar beating him again. The plan is and always has been to have roman reigns be the one to beat Lesnar at WM and thats the way its going to be weather we like it or not.

    I know this David is dumb. He went on an on when AJ Styles won the WWE title like he didn’t expect it to happen. Never once did he congrats the guy for being a two time WWE champion.

    I think plans in the WWE has change an they are going to put the Universal title on Braun Storwman at the Royal Rumble. They are going to either use Kane for Brock Lesnar to pin or Storwman because Lesnar don’t want to put Braun over.

  • Nicholas Giambattista

    Didn’t David just report the other day that Brock Lesnar was not defending his title at the Rumble.
