Reported Plans For Brock Lesnar After Royal Rumble Revealed

Last updated

Brock Lesnar had been rumored to face Gunther at WrestleMania 39 but that is seemingly not the current plan. The company teased a few possible directions at Royal Rumble, but Brock Lesnar’s face-to-face with Gunther isn’t supposed to go further.

Brock Lesnar entered the Men’s Royal Rumble match at number 12 and quickly engaged Sheamus and Drew McIntyre. He overpowered his opponents with several suplexes and then eliminated Santos Escobar.

Brock Lesnar then had a brief confrontation with Gunther before Bobby Lashley came out and eventually eliminated Brock Lesnar. While speaking on Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer noted that the current plan for Lesnar will see him face off against Bobby Lashley at WrestleMania 39 and not Gunther.

“It’s possible they could do Lesnar vs Lashley at Elimination Chamber and Lesnar vs GUNTHER at WrestleMania. I can check on this again and I will, but I was pretty much told no Lesnar and GUNTHER. I have not been told no Lesnar and Lashley, but Lesnar and Lashley is the one they’re pushing hard. Yeah, he could do one for each show, but it certainly felt like the Lashley one is th one theyr’e building up. The GUNTHER one felt like a tease, they felt like something for someday we got this in our pocket, the Lashley one felt like ’˜this is a WrestleMania.’”
