It was confirmed earlier this week that Brock Lesnar would be appearing at yet another live event for WWE.

Following his hotly-anticipated match with Goldberg at Survivor Series, The Beast Incarnate will next be in action in December, as he travels to Mexico City for a live event on December 3.

WWE announced the news of Lesnar's appearance, but didn't reveal who he would be sharing the ring with. However, that has since changed.

In an announcement, WWE have now confirmed that Lesnar's next opponent, after Goldberg, of course, will be none other than Rusev.

Lesnar has made a couple of appearances at live shows in the past few months, taking on Kofi Kingston during the Far East tour, and then having a SummerSlam rematch with Randy Orton.

WWE like putting Lesnar on live events because it's cheaper for them, and it also helps ticket sales for said event, and the one in Mexico should be no different, especially given the fact he's going up against Rusev.

The Bulgarian Brute has recently been feuding with Roman Reigns for the United States Championship, but he turned his attentions to Goldberg this past week on Monday Night Raw.

Rusev interrupted Goldberg to come down and help Paul Heyman, but his efforts were met with a Jackhammer from the former WCW Champion.

Despite his altercation with Goldberg, Lesnar's next opponent, that hasn't stopped WWE from booking Rusev vs Lesnar for the live event.

WWE's statement read: "Mexico City becomes Suplex City this December! WWE Superstar Brock Lesnar will step into the ring in Mexico City, Saturday, Dec. 3, for a thrilling WWE Live Event at the Arena Ciudad de Mexico. The show starts at 8 p.m. local time.

"Joined by his advocate, the always-outspoken Paul Heyman, this Live Event marks The Beast Incarnate's first in Mexico with WWE. And it won't be an easy night for Lesnar, since his opponent that evening will be none other than The Bulgarian Brute, Rusev."

It promises to be a brutal and physical affair in Mexico City.
