The former WWE Champion Brock Lesnar has been slated to be a part of the Money in the Bank show to be held in July. He was advertised for the show. However, as per the reports, his status is still unclear. It is to be noted that the venue of the show was also altered. By the looks of it, plans for Brock Lesnar and the Undisputed WWE Universal Champion Roman Reigns are uncertain now. The company changed the advertisements and removed both Lesnar and Reigns from it.
Brock Lesnar might not return
Reports suggested that WWE wanted Roman Reigns’ first title defense as the WWE Universal Champion to take place at Money in the Bank. It is also believed that The Beast Incarnate will make his return to the Premium Live Event after being absent since losing to The Tribal Chief at WrestleMania 38. Now, going by the reports of Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, the original ideas for Roman Reigns and Brock Lesnar are currently in jeopardy. He said that plans for the company’s two biggest stars are ‘up in the air’ for Money in the Bank.
”However, everything regarding both Reigns and Brock Lesnar for Money in the Bank is now said to be up in the air. Reigns vs. Riddle could still happen. We have no idea on Lesnar, who was booked on the show because it was at a stadium,” said Meltzer.
WWE had heavily advertised Lesnar’s return to boost ticket sales as the show was originally being held at the Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas. But the company decided to change the venue to MGM Grand Garden Arena, which has considerably less seating capacity. The reason for the change is allegedly due to poor ticket sales.
