2017 is about to end and the exciting “Road To WrestleMania” is about to begin. Let us take a look at 5 things that are expected to happen in WWE in January 2018.
5. Announcement On The Undertaker’s In-Ring Status
In the main event of WrestleMania 33, The Undertaker suffered his second loss at WrestleMania when he lost to “The Big Dog” Romain Reigns. After losing the match, Taker left his gear in the ring & speculation began that “The Deadman” has finally retired. However, WWE never confirmed The Undertaker’s retirement.
The Undertaker is now scheduled to return to WWE programming on the 25th anniversary episode of Raw on January 22nd and the fans should expect an announcement on The Phenom’s in-ring status in this highly anticipated return.
4. Another Successful Universal Title Defense For Brock Lesnar
“The Beast Incarnate” Brock Lesnar will defend his Universal Championship against Kane & Braun Strowman in a Triple Threat match at Royal Rumble 2018 PPV.
Lesnar is currently expected to win this match and retain the Championship. Lesnar will then enter WrestleMania 34 as the Universal Champion. Lesnar will be the Champion for more than a year by then.
