Brock Lesnar will not be a part of upcoming RAW pay-per-view

WWE Universal Champion Brock Lesnar will not be a part of the forthcoming RAW exclusive pay-per-view Elimination Chamber.

The news was revealed by the venue of Elimination Chamber, the T-Mobile Arena, who released a statement regarding the much-anticipated event. Here’s the statement put forward by the venue on their website:

“Fans will have the opportunity to see WWE Raw Superstars battle inside 10 tons of unforgiving steel. Head to the Las Vegas Strip to see Roman Reigns, Dean Ambrose, Seth Rollins, Finn Balor, Samoa Joe, The Miz and many more fan-favourite WWE Superstars.”

As seen above, the statement does not mention “The Beast Incarnate”. This suggests that Brock Lesnar will skip the pay-per-view and head into WrestleMania to defend his title.

Brock Lesnar absence would mean that the event won’t be having a Universal Championship match. As a result, the event might witness the top stars of RAW battle it out for a title shot in the unforgiving steel structure.

Lesnar’s next opponent has not been revealed yet. Furthermore, it was earlier speculated that “The Demon” Finn Balor would face Lesnar at the Royal Rumble. Apparently, the plan was scrapped since Vince McMahon did not find Balor “over” with the fans.

Brock Lesnar was last seen at the Survivor Series pay-per-view where he defeated “The Phenomenal” AJ Styles. Consequently helping RAW on its way to brand supremacy.

Lesnar’s part-time contract with the company indicates that he appears at selected shows and pay-per-views.

The Elimination Chamber pay-per-view will take place at the T-Mobile Arena, Las Vegas on February 25, 2018.

Author’s Take

With Brock Lesnar absent for the pay-per-view and reports of SmackDown star winning the Royal Rumble, there is a chance that the main event of the show would be a No.1 Contender’s match for the Red Brand’s top title. Regardless, Lesnar is expected to face Roman Reigns at “The grandest stage of them all”. It seems almost certain that “The Big Dog” will walk out of the steel structure and go on to headline WrestleMania (yet again).
