We can confirm that this was just a graphic made by a fan and it was taken from a YouTube video where a fan reveals his dream match card for Elimination Chamber 2018. Someone then posted it on a TV screen screenshot and made it seem real.
As we have noted on multiple occassions before, Lesnar isn’t expected to drop the Universal Title before WrestleMania 34.
