There is an update on Brock Lesnar’s new WWE deal in the latest Wrestling Observer Newsletter.
As previously reported, this is a short-term deal that goes through WrestleMania. He is scheduled to face AJ Styles at Survivor Series in less than two weeks but he is not scheduled for the TLC pay-per-view. It is unknown what his status is for the Royal Rumble but, according to Dave Meltzer, Lesnar will be interacting with more Superstars besides Braun Strowman.
Meltzer reports that there will be a significant angle that will be part of Lesnar’s storyline going forward. For what it’s worth, Seth Rollins cut a promo on Monday and said that Lesnar’s Universal Title win at Crown Jewel was a slap in the face to the fans and the wrestlers in the locker room so it looks like the seeds are being planted for whatever big storyline is planned for Lesnar.
There were no names confirmed for this storyline but Meltzer added, “Drew McIntyre is clearly being groomed for a top run.”
