BackStage News On ‘WWE Changing WWE Royal Rumble 2018 Main Event’


Source: F4WOnline

According to Dave Meltzer on Wrestling Observer Radio Finn Balor vs. WWE Universal Champion Brock Lesnar had been scheduled as the co-main event for the WWE Royal Rumble 2018 PPV but those plans have been nixed.

Meltzer stated that the direction was changed early Monday morning. Vince McMahon reportedly feels that Balor is not over enough, which likely explains the RAW loss to Samoa Joe last night.

There’s obvious speculation on Braun Strowman vs. Lesnar, but it was noted that the match doesn’t make much sense as it has been done and officials don’t want to hurt Braun, plus they won’t be putting the title on Braun because they’ve spent the whole year building to Roman Reigns vs. Lesnar at WrestleMania 34.

No word yet on Brock’s opponent for the Rumble, but officials are reportedly scrambling for a match as plans are up in the air. It was also noted that Vince doesn’t want anyone kicking out of the F5 until WrestleMania.
