Will Brock Lesnar be a part of Wrestlemania 35? This is the biggest question that will come up once Lesnar will face Braun Strowman at WWE Royal Rumble next month. The present WWE Universal champion is not the favourite one to defend his title in 2019 and there can be a case when might lose to Strowman, which can also rule him out of the biggest event of the year that will be taking place in April. It is to be noted that Lesnar might also face Daniel Cormier in a UFC match in March, which can rule him out of Wrestlemania.
As per Mike Johnson on PW Inside Elite, Lesnar has not been used to advertise Wrestlemania 35 so far, which further increases the chances of him not taking part in the event. “I wonder if Brock’s gonna be with them past the Rumble because you know everyone figured Brock was out the door. Is he even factored into their WrestleMania plans? We haven’t seen him advertised or even footage of him being used to promote WrestleMania 35. So I wonder if he’s out the door at the Rumble, but I guess that’s the allure of Brock is that, ‘Is this the end of Brock’s run?’ and it turns out not to be,” Johnson said.
Lesnar’s previous WWE appearance came at Survivor Series where he faced Daniel Bryan in a one-on-one match. His next appearance will be coming on Raw in third week of 2019, a few days ahead of Royal Rumble, which is a compulsory one to build up to the title match.
Lesnar is expected to lose the match, with Strowman being crowned as the champion as per the present status, but WWE has always surprised fans by keeping Lesnar on the roster.
At Wrestlemania 34, he looked set to lose his title to Roman Reigns and sign with UFC but the match went to the wire and Lesnar pinned Reigns to keep the title. Later, WWE made it official that Lesnar had rejoined WWE again.
At SummerSlam, when he finally lost the title to Reigns, Lesnar made a surprising comeback at Hell in a Cell and joined the race to win the title again. The result of the Royal Rumble match will have a big impact on Lesnar’s chances for Wrestlemania 35.
