Tonight at Royal Rumble 2018 PPV, former WWF Champion Kane will get a shot at becoming a World Champion once again, when he faces Brock Lesnar & Braun Strowman in a Triple Threat match for the Universal Championship.
Despite some people backstage in WWE wanting Strowman to win this match, current plan remains for Lesnar to retain the Title and head into WrestleMania 34 as the Universal Champion.
