As we noted earlier on the site, former WWE Champion Brock Lesnar will be working Saturday’s live event at the Arena Ciudad de Mexico in Mexico City and he is scheduled to wrestle Rusev in a singles match at the event. This will mark the first time that Lesnar has worked a WWE event in the country.
Lesnar’s contract allows WWE to use him for a select number of live events. His live event dates call for shorter matches, which is why his match at the Chicago event on September 24th against Randy Orton only went 5 minutes.
Both Lana and Paul Heyman took to Twitter to hype the upcoming match. They posted this:

Roman Reigns, Sasha Banks, Charlotte, The New Day, Kevin Owens, Rusev, Sheamus and Dean Ambrose are also advertised to appear event.
