• Brock Lesnar Reaches New Milestone
As of today, “The Beast Incarnate” Brock Lesnar has completed 400 days as the Universal Champion.
As we noted before, Vince McMahon is booking Brock Lesnar to break CM Punk’s record of 434 days as the WWE Champion.
The Titles are obviously different (Punk held the WWE Championship while Lesnar holds the Universal Championship), the idea is for Lesnar to become the man with the longest reign as “World Champion” in the past 30 years and also the longest reigning World Champion in the “WWE” (since May 2002 when WWF became WWE).
Since both WWE & Universal Titles are considered “World Titles”, WWE is planning to have Lesnar overtake Punk. This is the reason why Lesnar beat Roman Reigns at WrestleMania 34 and the Greatest Royal Rumble.
Lesnar will break Punk’s record on June 10th and Lesnar’s next Title defense is slated to be on June 17th, at the Money In The Bank 2018 PPV.
