Bengaluru, Nov 27: Brock Lesnar has made his last televised appearance for the year 2016 at the Survivor Series PPV. However, he will be doing a house show in Mexico City against Rusev.
Since this is a usual live event, this is not going to be televised and is likely to be culminated without any sort of fall outs.
Meanwhile, cagesideseats.com confirmed that he will not make any other appearance before 2017. Ryan Satin of Pro-Wrestling Sheet stated that Brock Lesnar will be back to feature in the Royal Rumble match set to take place on January 28, 2017. It is also to be noted that Goldberg will also participate in the match.
So, reports suggest that his presence will be to ensure the rematch between Goldberg and Lesnar at next year’s Wrestlemania.
The situation will be similar to Royal Rumble 2004 when he cost Goldberg a world title shot to set up the Wrestlemania match at the 20th edition. The history will repeat 12 years later at the Alamodome in San Antonio, Texas.
It was Brock Lesnar who was in favor of the squash match to put up a long-term story-telling with Goldberg.
He will be back facing the Myth at the grandest stage of them all. His time, it won’t be any squash match but Lesnar will be doing what’s he is known for.
The beast has seen money in this feud and hence he pushed Vince McMahon to sign Goldberg for a full-time contract. The chairman could not refuse it since Survivor Series and the fantasy warfare made the event, the most successful PPV of the year, thus far.
Both, Goldberg and Brock Lesnar are going to be big draws for the Royal Rumble PPV which will see its 30th anniversary, next year.
The presence of these two fighters would automatically help WWE to sell out a crowd of more than 65000.
Goldberg has already announced his entry into the prestigious Rumble match but Lesnar is likely to hold that until next year.
