Brock Lesnar’s WWE Contract, When UFC Wants Him To Fight & More

Published

on

Brock Lesnar

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.

Abyss
Abyss & Sonjay Dutt have left IMPACT Wrestling!

Some breaking news this evening for fans of IMPACT Wrestling, as PWInsider is reporting they have confirmed that Abyss and Sonjay Dutt have parted ways with the promotion.

According to PWInsider, the decision for both men to leave the company is said to be “amicable”  for all parties and IMPACT informed the roster of Abyss and Dutt’s departures in an email today. Additionally, it’s being said that IMPACT officials did not want to hold either man back from taking a bigger opportunity, which also according to PWInsider looks to be WWE, where they reportedly will begin shortly. At this time their possible roles in WWE are not known, however it’s believed that both will be working in a backstage capacity.

Abyss had recently re-signed with IMPACT last year (see that story here) and was inducted into the IMPACT Hall Of Fame over Bound For Glory weekend. Since then, ‘The Monster’ has been filling a producer’s role behind-the-scenes. As for Sonjay Dutt, he had been a member of IMPACT’s creative team and it’s believed he will take on similar duties for WWE, should that turn out to be the destination.

Regarding what this means for IMPACT’s current creative team, PWInsider is also reporting they have confirmed that Tommy Dreamer and Konnan have now stepped in.

With just a few days left before the third and final of a trifecta of Road To G1 Supercard events coming up in San Antonio, Texas this Saturday, Ring Of Honor has begun revealing the first matches for the show today.

After announcing that Marty Scurll will meet either Jonathan Gresham or Mark Haskins (depending on what happens in Dallas and Houston for Tag Wars), plus adding a WOH World Title Match that will see Kelly Klein defending against the former champion Sumie Sakai (more on that here), Ring Of Honor has now revealed that Bandido will be in action as he takes on Rocky Romero:

The road to Madison Square Garden begins deep in the heart of Texas as the stars of Ring of Honor and New Japan Pro-Wrestling do battle on Road to G1 Supercard – San Antonio on Jan. 26!

Your favorite stars will be in action, jockeying for position as ROH heads toward 17th Anniversary in Las Vegas, the final stop on the Road to G1 Supercard in Baltimore, and finally, The World’s Most Famous Arena!

ROH’s return to San Antonio features Night 3 of Tag Wars, the semifinals and finals of a 12-team tournament for a shot at the ROH World Tag Team Titles at 17th Anniversary on March 15 and a spot in the Crockett Cup, a tag team tournament co-promoted by the NWA and ROH, on April 27.

A first-time ever bout pitting ROH newcomer Bandido against New Japan Pro-Wrestling star Rocky Romero is the latest big match to be signed for the show.

BANDIDO vs. ROCKY ROMERO

Bandido was one of pro wrestling’s breakout stars in 2018, as the 23-year-old sensation wowed audiences all around the globe. The fourth-generation luchador competed in the prestigious Battle of Los Angeles in September and made it all the way to the finals. Also that month, he participated in the six-man tag match that headlined the All In pay-per-view before more than 11,000 fans at the sold-out Sears Centre near Chicago.

He recently signed an exclusive contract with ROH to test his skills against the best wrestlers in the world, and he will face one of the best in Romero

The veteran from Los Angeles has become one of the best player-coaches in wrestling, leading Roppongi 3K to the IWGP Junior Heavyweight Tag Team Championship while also maintaining an active schedule. Romero is a three-time former ROH World Tag Team Champion and is one of only two wrestlers to hold championships in ROH, NJPW and CMLL (Matt Taven is the other).
