Brock Lesnar made his shocking return to WWE at SummerSlam, and few saw that one coming. The Beast Incarnate’s deals have historically been very close to the vest, but a report surfaced afterward that WWE bumped up Reigns vs Lesnar. That is not the case.
It was said that the Inglewood, California WrestleMania event in 2023 was slated to see the Beast Incarnate vs the Tribal Chief. The company was also planning Roman Reigns vs The Rock in 2022 at WrestleMania in Dallas. We can confirm that Lesnar vs Reigns was not planned for WrestleMania 2023, because they haven’t made plans that far out yet.
Ringside News asked around about WWE initially planning Roman Reigns vs Brock Lesnar for WrestleMania in 2023. We were told that is an “incorrect report.”
WWE is not making plans for the WrestleMania card in 2023, but they do know the venue will be SoFi Stadium. That LA building was the original intended home for WrestleMania 37, but the pandemic caused them to nix those plans. As Ringside News exclusively reported, WWE returned to Tampa for WrestleMania 37, postponing their SoFi Stadium show in the process.
We will have to see how soon WWE books Roman Reigns vs Brock Lesnar. It is plausible that their match could go down in Saudi Arabia at Crown Jewel this October. They already have a full event on that show where they plan to crown both King and Queen of the Ring.
