He really is the smartest man in WWE, isn’t he? Brock Lesnar has been on WWE TV quite a lot recently, and when I say quite a lot I mean that only in terms of it being him.
For anyone else it would be nothing at all, but at least he had one match with Rey Mysterio at Survivor Series, and one match every few months is about as much as we can hope for.
It seems that this trend will continue as the Wrestling Observer Newsletter is reporting that Brock Lesnar is now to take a couple of months off as WWE has no plans for him until Royal Rumble, where he will presumably start a very short programme with someone before beating them easily.
“Lesnar is back on hiatus until probably around January. His next show is the Rumble so he’ll be back when it comes to shoot his angle for that show.”
That means for the time being the top male belt on Raw will be the United States Championship which is now held by Rey Mysterio after he defeated AJ Styles on this week’s show.
Who Lesnar will face is a mystery, but Raw’s upper midcard is full of people who could take endless big bumps for Brock and make him look amazing.
After that, we’ll see Brock at the end of March for WrestleMania season.
