Brock Lesnar went on a hiatus as per his contractual obligations following his match at No Mercy. On that night, he had yet another successful Universal Championship defence against Braun Strowman. Despite the dominance shown by the monster among men, the beast incarnate was able to topple him via a number German suplexes following a massive F-5.
Now, as per the contract of Brock Lesnar with the WWE, he only works a few dates in the company. In this year, he has already accomplished overtime for the company. Usually, he makes appearances in four dual brand PPVs, but this year, he also performed in two Raw-exclusive PPVs, i.e. Great Balls of Fire and No Mercy. This was quite essential since he is the reigning champion.
Going forward, it is expected that he might not show up in the remaining part of 2017. He is expected to come back to defend his title next at the Royal Rumble PPV in January 2018 when the Wrestlemania season kicks off. This would also help to hype up the season, as well.
But, according to the latest reports, the beast might be forced to work an additional date. If the recently published schedule is kept intact, then the champion will put his title on the line at the last dual brand PPV of the year, Survivor Series.
As per the updates from NoDQ.com, Brock Lesnar has been added to the October 23rd edition of WWE Raw. This will be the post-TLC episode of the flagship program from where the build-ups of the Survivor Series PPV will kick-start. Later, WWE also advertised him to be a part of the upcoming edition of Raw. The beast is undoubtedly going to be a part of it. The episode will take place in Greenbay, Wisconsin. He is also listed in an edition on November 13th which will be hosted in Atlanta, Georgia.
The latter mentioned date will be the go-home show for Survivor Series which pretty much confirms the fact that he will be performing at the bigger PPV. WWE officials might be forced to include the beast into the PPV event considering that John Cena will be absent from the show.
His movie schedule is supposed to keep away from WWE for a long time, for now. Plus, this might be the last year of Brock Lesnar’s WWE contract. So, the company is looking forward to using him in the possible ways.
