When Roman Reigns was not in condition to compete at this past Sunday’s WWE TLC event, many speculated that Brock Lesnar would be called by the WWE to replace Reigns in the match, according to reports from Wrestling Observer Newsletter. The reason why Lesnar was expected as the replacement was because he attended college in Minneapolis and is considered Minneapolis’ hometown star. Despite this, according to sources Lesnar was never contacted.

Another replacement that was needed at the WWE TLC PPV was for the Finn Balor match. It is not known how many names were considered before settling on AJ Styles, but one star that was contacted for taking Bray Wyatt’s spot was Chris Jericho. Jericho was unavailable for an appearance for the event because he is right now on a tour with his band Fozzy.
