A new report has offered an update on the future of WWE Champion Brock Lesnar.
At WrestleMania 38, Brock Lesnar will step into the ring with Universal Champion Roman Reigns. The match on night two of the spectacular will see both World Championship’s on the line, and one man walking out with all of the gold.
In recent years, Lesnar hasn’t consistently worked a full-time schedule and often steps away after high-profile matches. This has led fans to wonder how long The Beast will be sticking around after WrestleMania, owing to his recent run which has seen him appear most weeks.
Writing in the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, Dave Meltzer has now given an update on Lesnar’s future. The WWE Champion is slated to appear at two out of the next three Premium Live Events.
“Lesnar is booked for two of the next three PPV shows, WrestleMania Backlash on 5/8 in Providence, RI (6,059 tickets out) and Money in the Bank at Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas on 7/2.”
Meltzer went on to note that Lesnar won’t be working a full-time schedule.
“One would think after the build saying there’d only be one champion, that they don’t add a second champion at least for a few months. The key to that’d be the IC and US titles shouldn’t have been more meaningless in a sense that they’d be top titles on a brand unless Lesnar is winning or Reigns goes to work both brands as champion. And Lesnar isn’t even working a full schedule.”
