WWE’s Survivor Series is just over a week away now on November 18th, where we will see the new Universal Champion Brock Lesnar meet WWE Champion AJ Styles in a rematch from last year.
While many fans were of the assumption that Brock was finished with WWE to return to the UFC, we now know that’s obviously not the case as the company’s loss of Roman Reigns long-term changed a number of plans. Recently, it was reported that while Lesnar is still set on a UFC return, he has yet to sign a deal with the promotion and now that has he signed on with WWE, he was only scheduled for one more match following Survivor Series (see that story here). On top of that, this new WWE deal gives him the freedom to step back into the cage.
We’ve now had a number of updates regarding Lesnar’s future, as Meltzer has since noted on Wrestling Observer Radio that ‘The Beast Incarnate’ is expected to compete at WrestleMania 35, whereas before it was thought his next last match after Survivor Series could come at the Royal Rumble in January. Additionally, it’s being said there will be a “significant” angle for Lesnar going into WrestleMania season which will involve someone other than Braun Strowman, who many believed was being built up towards a big victory over Brock. At this time, it’s not known who said Superstar is, but recently Drew McIntyre and Intercontinental Champion Seth Rollins have both brought up either Lesnar or the Universal Title.
As for Brock and the UFC, Meltzer is reporting that officials are currently looking to have him fight UFC Heavyweight Champion Daniel Cormier in Las Vegas on March 2nd, five weeks before WrestleMania 35.
