WWE Rumors: Brock Lesnar’s Next Title Defense, Missing Extreme Rules?

Published

on

One of the biggest gripes you’ll hear these days from members of the WWE Universe is most certainly the use (or lack thereof) of RAW’s Universal Champion Brock Lesnar. ‘The Beast Incarnate’ won the title back at WrestleMania 33 and has held onto it ever since, making sporadic appearances and title defenses. The overwhelming sentiment from fans is they’ve just had enough of the red brand’s top title being seldom seen.

According to The Wrestling Observer Newsletter, fans will have to continue waiting as Lesnar is reportedly not scheduled to defend the championship again until SummerSlam on August 19th. With Money In The Bank coming on June 17th, the next pay-per-view after that is Extreme Rules on July 15th, which Brock has not been advertised for.

Additionally, it’s being said that if Brock has his sights set on returning to the UFC when his short-term agreement with WWE runs out (reportedly right after SummerSlam), he would have to re-enter the USADA testing pool prior to June 30th. Speculation has been that ‘The Conqueror’ could get his next fight on New Year’s weekend, should he choose to return.

EA’s Take: I still don’t have a big issue with the Universal Title not being around much, as I stated last week on the Top Of The Morning Podcast (check that out here). It’s allowed the importance of the IC Title to be amplified (which we’ve seen with Miz and Rollins), plus I grew up on Hogan as the champion and hardly ever wrestling (at least on television). I also still say Lesnar’s not going anywhere, he really has it made in WWE and at his age, why fight again? I’ve heard in the past that the Mrs. doesn’t want him to either, so that’s got to play a part.

WWE News: Segment Added To Next Week’s SmackDown Live

Published

Vince McMahon
More has been added to next week’s SmackDown Live!

Next week we will see the final episodes of WWE’s RAW and SmackDown Live before next Sunday’s Royal Rumble event and over the weekend we’ve had some announcements regarding what we will see on both shows (see the latest for RAW here).

Today, we learned that Tuesday’s edition of the blue brand will not only see Mustafa Ali take on Samoa Joe, but Rey Mysterio and Andrade will clash again in a rematch of last week’s epic encounter. Except this time around, it will be in a 2/3 Falls Match (read about that here).

Now, a segment has been revealed for SmackDown Live that will see Royal Rumble opponents AJ Styles and WWE Champion Daniel Bryan going “face-to-face”. What will make this interesting is the addition of a third body however, which will be none other than WWE Chairman Vince McMahon himself:

Tensions between WWE Champion “The New” Daniel Bryan and AJ Styles have continued to escalate over the past several weeks, and now, with their WWE Title Match in sight, the two will meet face-to-face this Tuesday night with Mr. McMahon moderating.

With both Superstars having attacked each other in arena concourses over consecutive weeks, animosity is running at an all-time high in this incredibly personal rivalry. And now, with Mr. McMahon moderating, who only a few weeks ago urged The Phenomenal One to bring out “the real” AJ Styles, will matters boil over just five nights before they square off at Royal Rumble?

Find out this Tuesday night on SmackDown LIVE!
