Brock Lesnar to Hold Onto The Universal Title Until WrestleMania?

Brock Lesnar to Hold Onto The Universal Title Until WrestleMania?

As previously noted, the plan for next year’s WrestleMania headliner will see Brock Lesnar defending the WWE Universal Championship against Roman Reigns.

This match was discussed in the mailbag segment of today’s installment of Wrestling Observer Radio when a reader wrote into the show and asked if WWE plans to actually have Brock hold onto the title until the event. Dave Meltzer, the editor of the site, mentioned that he doesn’t exactly know what the plan is but it is very possible that Brock could lose the title before WrestleMania and win it back before the show. Meltzer said that he only knows that the plan is for Brock to defend the title on the card.

    That would just be dumb on all counts. They want him to defend his.undeserving title twice at the most. Rarely show up on raw. Has he been back since winning the title?

    • Ruben Perez

      Totally agree with you. He should be stripped from the title if he ain’t showing up at the Raw shows.

      • Possible

        Or he could just do his job and get paid his money like they tell him to do

    • daleh33

      Let’s not forget that Randy has to defend his belt withing 2 weeks of each match. Last Raw PPV and then this Sunday at SDL PPV.

    • Kyle Barbosa

      Would you like to see him defend it against someone like The miz? You know the outcome. Who cares if he defends it or not? To watch Lesnar throw a guy around for 10 minutes then win? Watch the network if you wanna see that

      • ScottyPNR

        Miz no. but someone like finn balor or even vs stroman we know the results. He shouldn’t be world champion as a quarter time player

  • Adam

    Isn’t there a rule that states Champions must defend their titles one every 30 days? Has he even done that?

    • j l

      Yes there is, but they pick and choose when to enforce it. Its frustrating.

    • Robert Mango

      Really? You do realize this is scripted right?

    • Michael Slutsky

      Actually the rule states you have to be able to defend it within 30 days you don’t have to defend it every 30 days it’s basically a rule they enforce whenever a champion or champions get injured.

  • joe Collins

    This has said on Paul Heyman Twitter Brock Lesnar will not be attending great balls of fire pay-per-view

  • Kyle Barbosa

    Reigns will beat Lesnar at Summerslam or Survivor Series….Vince isn’t going to wait. He’s an impatient man

  • AC Valentine

    WWE has programming has become… mundane. I watch Raw and SDL on Hulu and skip through most of it. Can’t get enough of Sasha and Bliss. Matter of fact, I think all the women superstars deserve their own show. I would watch that more than Raw and SDL. They can call it WWE Stratusphere.

    • ScottyPNR

      They aren’t even good at wrestling most of them at least. Sd is crap. But they have improved since miz left. And raw has gotten worse since miz went to raw

  • Robert Mango

    Brock may have the best job on the planet. 15 times a year he walks down to the ring, stands next to paul heyman, and looks big next to him. Then, another 5 or 6 times, he gets to throw someone around for 3 to 4 minutes. And he gets paid millions (more than any other sports entertainer) to do this. The only person who makes more for less is Alex Rodriguez!

    • Possible

      Not to mention he gets to represent as the champion, supposedly making him the best there is lol

  • Amos Cheek

    This is part of the problem.You have a champion who is never there.Why even have the championship if it’s not even going to be displayed?The Universal championship has been garbage since it debuted and this does nothing but diminish it even further.Might as well get rid of it and make the IC title the main title on Raw.

  • stela verde

    Can I also have Brock job? Hey Heyman I can be your client too.
