The entire situation surrounding Brock Lesnar has left WWE fans with more questions than answers, as we’re still unaware what the future has in store for him.
While it’s good to have that slight sense of unpredictability regarding his future in the company, what isn’t unpredictable is the fact that Roman Reigns is still expected to be the superstar that slays The Beast and snatches the Universal Championship away from him after a destructive, yet slightly underwhelming reign.
That’s what many expected to happen at WrestleMania 34 last Sunday inside of the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans, Louisiana. The common assumption was that Lesnar would drop the championship and head over to the UFC.
While that still could happen, the WWE is making sure the intricacies of his new deal aren’t leaked so it’s not obvious when he’ll leave and when he could drop the Universal title.
It might come as early as April 27, as Lesnar is scheduled to meet The Big Dog yet again. This time, they do battle inside of a steel cage at the Greatest Royal Rumble event in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia. If rumours are to be believed, Reigns could win that match in front of a more receptive crowd, allowing Lesnar to ride off into the sunset and back towards the Octagon.
We have been swerved before, though, so it could well and truly happen again. If Lesnar stays, there have been several big-name matches that fans want to see him in and one particular contest which has been rumoured to take place at SummerSlam.
Monday Night RAW general manager Kurt Angle recently spoke to USA Today to promote the Superstar Shake-up, where he admitted that he wants to finally see a match between Lesnar and the returning Bobby Lashley - two dominant athletes he’s very familiar with during his time in both WWE and Impact Wrestling.
LESNAR VS. LASHLEY
According to Wrestling Inc, he said: “That surprised me. I literally didn’t even know about him discussing anything with the company. Bobby was a great guy that was overlooked years back. He came into his own at Impact Wrestling.
“He proved that he’s an incredible sports entertainer, but Bobby was also, you know...he always wanted to be a pro wrestler. He wanted to be a sports entertainer. He didn’t necessarily want to be a fighter, but he had to fight to make some great money.
“So, he did what he had to do to provide for his family by being in Bellator. Not that he didn’t enjoy it, but he had a lot more of a love for sports entertainment than he did MMA.
“I’m glad he’s on RAW. I wrestled him many times - I beat him for the world title, he beat me.
“We had some great matches, and I know he’s capable of doing it. I think one of the matches I’d really be intrigued to see is him versus Brock.”
There have been plenty of rumours surrounding a potential match between the pair, long before either of them even returned to the WWE.
Lashley is seen as someone very similar to Lesnar, in the sense that they’re both legitimate fighters with the MMA backgrounds, and any match between them can be sold as more of a fight.
Whether WWE ever goes down this route, though, remains to be seen.
