• Good News For Brock Lesnar Fans
Wrestling Observer previously reported that after Brock Lesnar won the Universal Championship at WWE Crown Jewel, Lesnar was signed for just two more matches – one of them would be at Survivor Series 2018 and second would be at WrestleMania 35.
This angered some fans as that would’ve meant that Lesnar would make his first Universal Title defense straight at WrestleMania.
However, that’s not the case. According to Brad Shepard, Lesnar is expected to have more than just two more matches in his current run.
Lesnar will face the new WWE Champion Daniel Bryan this Sunday At Survivor Series 2018. Lesnar will also work the biggest WWE show of 2019, WrestleMania 35.
Expect Lesnar to work at least one more PPV before WrestleMania 35, and this would most likely be Royal Rumble 2019 (as the Rumble will be held in Chase Field in Phoenix, Arizona and WWE is going to use all their big names to sell it out).
