WWE has plans mapped out for Brock Lesnar through WrestleMania.
Vince McMahon has been in a “shaking up plans” mood of late but the current plan is for Lesnar to wrestle Seth Rollins at WrestleMania. This would explain why Rollins mentioned Lesnar during his promo a few weeks ago when they did Raw in the United Kingdom. For those of you that missed it, Rollins said that Lesnar’s Universal Title win was a slap in the face to the fans and everyone in the locker room.
It’s unclear what this means for Lesnar vs. Braun Strowman at the Royal Rumble. If they decide that Lesnar should not lose before Mania then it would mean that Lesnar will get his third straight win over Strowman.
The Lesnar/Strowman feud is scheduled to paly off of Roman Reigns in some fashion so you can expect his illness to be brought up even more on WWE TV.
If Lesnar is leaving WWE after Mania then the logical thing would be for Rollins to beat Lesnar but, as has been the case for the last few years, Lesnar could always sign a new deal so anything is possible for that match.
