Brock Lesnar will face Sheamus at Toyota Center house show

Published Add your comment

When Brock Lesnar signed a new deal with the WWE last year, one of the terms of the deal was to work at live events.

He worked at three live events across 2015,  a squash victory over Kofi Kingston in Tokyo, which was followed by a clash against The Big Show at Madison Square Garden in October, and then he took on Alberto Del Rio at a live event in LA’s Forum earlier in December.

Now, the WWE has confirmed during Monday Night Raw this week that The Beast will be going up against Sheamus on January 8 at the Toyota Center in Houston, Texas. This will be the first time the two have faced each other, according to Wrestling Inc.

Judging by the opponents who have faced Lesnar before and the outcome of those matches, it is likely The Celtic Warrior will not be winning this match as the WWE look to build up The Beast Incarnate strong as the company enters WrestleMania season.

Squashing Sheamus might not be the right decision by the WWE. It could end in a no contest or a DQ, but that's a bit undermining note for the fans to leave on as this match will likely be the main event of the live show.

The Celtic Warrior has had a lot of momentum behind him since he started his rivalry against Roman Reigns for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship, but as WrestleMania season approaches, he may start to slide out of the picture. The outcome of this match could determine his place in the company as it enters one of it's most important times of the year.

You may wonder why the WWE isn't televising this stellar matchup, but this could be because the company is saving this match up for an upcoming pay-per-view in the near future, possibly before WrestleMania. Hopefully, the WWE does decide to place this match on a pay-per-view in the future.
