Many fans were disappointed about the fact that Lesnar’s match with Braun Strowman for the Universal Championship at the No Mercy pay per view ended with The Beast Incarnate needing just one F5 in order to defeat the Monster Among Men. Now, he is the champion that is not going to be on the show for a very long time. There are a lot of guys in the main event scene on the red brand and champion being out of the game is not going to do any favors to the other wrestlers.
That is why many people hoped that Strowman was going to take the belt with him at No Mercy as he has looked great over the past couple of months and was booked like somebody that is a legit threat to Lesnar, a guy that is more than capable of taming the Beast in the main event this past Sunday. But, those wishes didn’t come true, and Lesnar is yet again going to take the title away from the brand.
The next Raw branded pay per view is going to be Tables Ladders and Chairs. Brock Lesnar is, of course, going to miss that event. Many believe that his 2017 with the WWE ended this Sunday and that his next big date is going to be the Royal Rumble in January. While that very well may be the case, The Beast Incarnate is advertised for the Raw in Green Bay a day after the TLC and the go-home Raw show for the Survivor Series pay per view. That is a strong indication that he will defend the belt at SS in November, but we will have to wait until TLC ends in order to see what is actually going to happen.
