• Brock Lesnar’s Post-WrestleMania 35 Status
We’re officially on the Road to WrestleMania 35 and we have two PPVs left before the Show of Shows in April – Elimination Chamber in February and FastLane in March.
According to the Wrestling Observer, Universal Champion Brock Lesnar isn’t expected to work any of the above stated PPVs and will now face Seth Rollins (Men’s Royal Rumble 2019 winner) directly at WrestleMania 35 on April 7.
After WrestleMania 35, Lesnar is highly expected to work the Saudi Arabia show in May (because of the massive payday).
After the Saudi Arabia show, it’s possible that Lesnar returns to the UFC for a fight sometime in the summer and then return to WWE in-time for SummerSlam 2019.
