WWE officials are already planning for after WrestleMania 34.
As seen at Sunday’s WWE No Mercy pay-per-view event in Los Angeles, CA at the Staples Center on the WWE Network, Brock Lesnar successfully retained his WWE Universal Championship against Braun Strowman in the match. This means that Strowman probably isn’t getting a rematch anytime soon.
In fact, Strowman may have to wait until 2018. According to Cageside Seats, if Lesnar re-signs, WWE hopes to return to the feud between him and Strowman after WrestleMania 34.
Strowman has risen up the ranks in WWE in a short amount of time after making his main roster debut just a few short years ago as part of The Wyatt Family. He has learned as he goes to be a top Superstar.
It’s well known that WWE Chairman Vince McMahon is a fan of big men. Just look at who he has pushed in the past. Superstars like Hulk Hogan, Andre The Giant, Kevin Nash, Scott Hall, The Undertaker, Kane, The Big Show, and the list goes on and on.
It’s well known by now that Lesnar has been scheduled to face Roman Reigns in the main event of WrestleMania 34. This has been the plan for a while now. At one point, WWE officials did talk about having John Cena take on Reigns at WrestleMania, but WWE briefly changed the SummerSlam main event from being Lesnar defending the WWE Universal Championship against Braun Strowman to Lesnar vs. Reigns.
The expectation is that Lesnar will remain the WWE Universal Champion heading into WrestleMania 34 next year. The feeling is that Reigns will be leaving New Orleans with the WWE Universal Title.
Lesnar won the WWE Universal Championship at WrestleMania 33 earlier this year in Orlando, Florida by beating Goldberg. He is reportedly set for a one-year run with the title, despite his part-time status.
There is some speculation that Lesnar will defend the Universal Title against former Universal Champion Finn Balor before WrestleMania 34. The match could take place at Survivor Series in November or the Royal Rumble in January.
