Last Friday at Crown Jewel, Brock Lesnar defeated Braun Strowman for the WWE Universal Championship.
The reasoning behind this is because the WWE are keen to have The Rock defeat Brock Lesnar for the Universal Championship at WrestleMania, and do a rematch between the pair in Saudi Arabia in April. However, if they are unable to secure The Rock, it’ll be Braun Strowman who will defeat Lesnar, and finally take his place as the WWE’s top babyface. The seeds for this were clearly sewn last Friday.
If the WWE don’t secure The Rock, it’s not known if Lesnar vs Strowman if the WWE will go back to Ronda Rousey vs Charlotte Flair. However, we can confirm, that the story put out by Dave Meltzer, about Batista vs Triple H being the planned Main Event, is completely FALSE. Whilst the match WAS pencilled in, it was NEVER considered to Main Event ahead of Rousey vs Charlotte or anything involving The Rock.
Despite the fact that Rousey and Charlotte are still set to face at WrestleMania, that match is no longer the preferred Main Event. To find out why, check out our exclusive story by going to:
