Kevin Owens to face Brock Lesnar on June 29

Football News

Prior to WrestleMania 32, it was rumored that the WWE was grooming Kevin Owens for a match against Brock Lesnar at The Showcase of The Immortals.

Owens even said in an interview he would love to have a match against either Lesnar or The Undertaker. Seeing The Beast Incarnate going up against The Prizefighter would make a lot of fans really happy as it is a match they have wanted to see for some time.

And it might be about to finally happen.

According to Wrestling Inc: "During tonight's episode of Raw, a local advertisement in Hawaii reportedly advertised John Cena vs. Shinsuke Nakamura and Brock Lesnar vs. Kevin Owens for the June 29 event in Honolulu. The event has already sold out."

Considering there is only two matches confirmed for the event, the quality of matches are already looking promising with Cena going up against Nakamura, and Lesnar facing Owens. Hopefully, this event will be broadcasted on the WWE Network, and, whether or not this match booking spells out the direction of the Canadian next month remains to be seen, but it is a promising sight to see.

Owens will be part of the fatal four-way match for the WWE Intercontinental Championship at Extreme Rules on May 22 against the current champion The Miz, arch-rival Sami Zayn, and Cesaro.

Many fans believe the former Intercontinental Champion is one of, if not, the best heel in the WWE today, and it shouldn't be very long at all until he makes the jump to the main event to compete for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship. He could, therefore, lose his match cleanly at Extreme Rules.

However, instead of going the conventional route of being the number one contender for the title, some members of the WWE Universe believe he could insert himself into the top championship picture by winning the Money in the Bank briefcase next month in the Money in the Bank pay-per-view on June 19.

This event takes place a week and a half before The Prizefighter is scheduled to go up against The Beast Incarnate on June 29, meaning the WWE could build up a feud between them before this match takes place.

Lesnar always believes he should be WWE World Heavyweight Champion, and what better way to get there by making the current Money in the Bank briefcase holder put the briefcase on the line so that if he wins, he can have his championship match at any time he pleases.

This is a feud many fans could invest in, and with the stakes above and the participants involved, it could end up being one brilliant match in Hawaii if WWE books it this way.
