Brock Lesnar’s WrestleMania 39 plans remain a mystery.
For the first time since 2016, Lesnar’s match at WrestleMania will seemingly not see The Beast either defend or challenge for a top singles championship. Aside from not appearing at WrestleMania 37, Lesnar has not had a non-title match at the Showcase of the Immortals since WrestleMania 32, where Lesnar defeated Dean Ambrose in a No Holds Barred Street Fight.
Who will Brock Lesnar face at WrestleMania 39?
The WrestleMania 38 night 2 main event would see then WWE Champion Lesnar face Universal Champion Roman Reigns in a match with both titles on the line. The match was marketed as “the biggest WrestleMania match of all time.”
With Roman Reigns still holding both top championships, Lesnar and Reigns will not be happening at WrestleMania 39 due to the rivalry concluding at SummerSlam 2022 in a Last Man Standing match.
As reported by the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, the previously reported match between Brock Lesnar and Intercontinental Champion Gunther was shot down, as this was “definitely not the plan.” However, the actual planned match for Lesnar was not revealed to Dave Meltzer, with the only information provided being that the upcoming bout was “something that almost nobody knew” and a “well guarded secret.”
While not confirmed, WWE appears to be setting up a third singles match between Lesnar and Bobby Lashley at some point in the near future. Lesnar would return to WWE during the main event of Raw XXX, where Bobby Lashley was challenging Austin Theory for the United States Championship under No Disqualification rules.
Lesnar played a huge part in the conclusion of the title match, delivering an F5 to Theory onto Lashley to allow Theory to pin the All Mighty and retain the Championship. With Lesnar and Lashley each having one victory a piece over the other, a rubber match is expected to take place soon.
One champion in WWE would like to face Brock Lesnar in the future, naming both Lesnar and John Cena as potential dream opponents.
