It was previously reported by Justin Barrasso of Sports Illustrated that Brock Lesnar has already used up all his contractual dates for the company and could have been one of the reasons he was absent from RAW this past week.
Those claims appear to be completely false, as Paul Heyman indicated on Twitter just moments ago that Lesnar fully intends to honor their “contractual obligations” and will be appearing at the WWE Live Event in Chicago this weekend.
The reigning defending undisputed @WWE #UniversalChampion @BrockLesnar and I fully intend to honor our contractual obligations and therefore will indeed appear LIVE at the @UnitedCenter this Saturday night in #Chicago.
As previously reported, Lesnar missing out on RAW this past week appears to be part of the storyline build for Brock’s Universal Title defense against Roman Reigns at WrestleMania this year.
