Backstage News On Brock Lesnar’s WWE Royal Rumble Match


As noted, Finn Balor vs. WWE Universal Champion Brock Lesnar at Royal Rumble main event being nixed due to Vince McMahon changing his mind about how over Balor is.

The Wrestling Observer Newsletter reports that there has been talk of Lesnar working a non-title match at the big PPV in January.

Vince does not want Braun Strowman vs. Lesnar at the Rumble for various reasons. The plan for the WrestleMania 34 main event is still to do current WWE Intercontinental Champion Roman Reigns vs. Lesnar.

No word yet on if Reigns would enter WrestleMania with the Intercontinental Title but he will be challenging for the Universal Title.

With Balor, Reigns, Strowman and Samoa Joe likely out of the running for possible Rumble opponents for Lesnar, there aren’t too many Superstars who are ready for the spot.

Lesnar is confirmed to be booked for the Rumble but a title defense is not 100% at this point.
