• WWE Officials Considering WWE Title Run For Brock Lesnar
According to Slice Wrestling, WWE officials are considering a WWE Championship run for Mr. Money In The Bank Brock Lesnar due to TV ratings still being low.
WWE officials feel that Lesnar winning the WWE Title (not the Universal Title this time) will shake things up and bring interest back into the WWE product, especially with SmackDown moving to FOX in October.
Speaking of Lesnar, he’s currently teasing that he’s going to cash-in on the Universal Champion at WWE Super ShowDown this Friday. Seth Rollins is set to defend the Universal Title against Baron Corbin at WWE Super ShowDown.
Word going on is that WWE is planning to save Lesnar’s MITB cash-in for SmackDown move to FOX, but that isn’t confirmed.
