Rumours: Why Brock Lesnar retained the Universal Championship?

Brock Lesnar v Roman Reigns, WrestleMania 34

Whether you liked it or not, you have to admit that WrestleMania was filled with many surprising moments like the end of Asuka’s streak, Nakamura’s heel turn and more.

However the most surprising of them all has to be Brock Lesnar retaining the WWE Universal Championship against Roman Reigns at the Show Of Shows and rumors on it have already begun.

While there are many speculations on why Lesnar retained, the most popular one so far is that the company is planning a future match between Brock and a returning Bobby Lashley.

For those who don’t know, Lashley has been subject to many speculations lately as well and word is that he is WWE bound and could make his return to the company within the next few weeks.

Though as of now, all these reports are nothing but rumors and we’ll have to wait for tomorrow’s episode of Monday Night Raw to get an idea on why the company chose to keep the title on Brock Lesnar.

    Totally agree. He just can’t get over with the fans.

    You’re right, The Rock IS half Black, but WWE doesn’t acknowledge him as Black, they acknowledge him as Samoan. Go back and check out the segment back in the Attitude Era when Rikishi ran over Stone Cold Steve Austin. When Mick Foley exposed him, Rikishi admitted it and said that he did for the Rock and “OUR PEOPLE” – Samoans who were getting “held back”. Sorry, but as far as WWE goes, The Rock is more Samoan than Black.

    I think the WWE is starting the realize not to build the WWE around Roman Reigns. I am sorry he maybe Champion again some day but he will not be who they want him to be.

  • Nicholas Giambattista

    No CM Punk was never Unverlasial Champion.

  • Arnold Jackson

    Oh no, they made wrestling unpredictable!!! How horrible!?! Your dad needs not get so mad at pro wrestling outcomes. I’m giving you a pass in hopes you are ten years old or something.

  • Why don’t people remember

    Rock is half black and won the WWE title….

  • Um…no

    What the hell did Lesnar do to deserve going right into the main event when he came back? Sometimes you just need a fresh face in the main event scene.

    Who was it confirmed by? The dirt sheets and their insider info?
    That is not confirmation by a long shot.
    Only people who can confirm it are WWE, and they are certainly not gonna do that in advance.

  • Darrin Tyler

    Me and my dad are pissed off about what happened. We were shocked. It was basically confirmed for over a year that he was going to lose to Roman. But all of a sudden they CHANGED this plan. Wtf??? Unless they plan on having him rematch him tonight and lose on Raw???? As for Bobby Lashley…..I don’t even remember who the hell that is.

  • oppa

    If Lashley beats him for the title, they can say the made a Black champion without him winning the actual WWE championship.

  • Arnold Jackson

    Lashley was very good in TNA. He has evolved and improved since his last WWE run. I know you just wanted to get your TNA jab in there but seriously it wasn’t Lashley’s fault the company was run by morons.

  • Azzurri

    They might of had Lesnar retain to set up for a rematch tonight and do the title change at Raw. WWE has done that before.

  • Bad feeling

    I have a bad feeling that one of the reasons Lesnar retained was they’re going to have him break Punk’s record just like they had Orton win the title after Lesnar left so they could say that Orton was the youngest champ.

  • Tony Schwaerzler

    Despite all the online negative comments about Roman Reigns, it was the only reason I watched yesterday was to see him finally get to win the title. I am sure I am in the minority but I think the world would rather have someone who works over the once-a-quarter appearances by a champion. WWE has ridden Brock as far as he can go in that capacity. People are just tired of it. And what in the hell has Bobby Lashley done to deserve walking in getting a title shot? TNA…seriously?

  • Kayfabe_Is_Dead

    Yeah, I don’t know. I suppose if Brock has a new WWE deal and is not champion, then what? Of course, I don’t see a problem with Brock fighting Lashley in a non-title match, but apparently WWE doesn’t see it that way. They definitely took a predictable match and made it unpredictable, but not in a good way.

    Too many unpleasant surprises…
