Brock Lesnar is undoubtedly one of the most dominant pro wrestlers to have ever competed inside the squared circle. He had two tremendous runs in WWE, both of which resulted in him winning major World Championships and being a huge draw for fans. Brock Lesnar has been absent from WWE television ever since he dropped the WWE Championship to Drew McIntyre at WrestleMania 36 last year. Brock Lesnar was also previously called out by a Superstar from Monday Night RAW.
Brock Lesnar made his return at WWE SummerSlam and then appeared on a previous episode of Friday Night Smackdown and confronted Roman Reigns for a WWE Universal Championship match, which he eventually accepted.
The two are set to square off against each other at WWE Crown Jewel for the WWE Universal Championship on October 21st in Saudi Arabia. It was announced by WWE that the match between the two will be No Holds Barred AND Falls Count Anywhere!
However, it would seem that WWE jumped the gun on that announcement as they took the stipulation off shortly afterwards.
In other news, Chris Jericho recently spoke to Sports Illustrated, where he talked about his backstage altercation with Brock Lesnar after SummerSlam 2016, where he went after Lesnar.
“When you get into that moment, it is what it is. You either go for it, or you put your tail between your legs and hide, and I’ve never been that type of guy. I’m more of the type to die with boots on. So I’ve had my issues and shoots with MMA guys before, like that one with Brock Lesnar, and I survived by the skin of my teeth.”
After announcing that Roman Reigns vs. Brock Lesnar was now a no DQ match, it was said on the #WWECrownJewel pre-show that Reigns and Lesnar have no interest in the stipulation and it will still be a regular match.
