A number of fans were quite disappointed with Brock Lesnar winning the WWE Universal Championship back at Wrestlemania 33. We all knew that he was going to end up victorious against Goldberg. It is not like he was a better option. The general belief was that these two shouldn’t have been in the match for the title at all.
But, if someone were to win it, the majority of the fans would pick Lesnar over Goldberg. He’s not the ideal choice, but it was what it was.
Lesnar is not a full-time performer. He gets a lot of money to do very little, let’s just put it that way. It means that this man doesn’t appear on every single Monday Night Raw, only before the big shows and big title defenses. This is a problem for the championship and all the stars on that brand as he is holding the title hostage while he is away.
When your champion is not present each and every week, there are a lot of superstars that have nothing to fight for, nothing to strive to.
With the rumors that Lesnar is not going to appear on Raw until January of 2018, we knew that the show was going to suffer because of the lack of the storylines.
Well, we now know that he is going to appear in a couple of weeks and make his return in 2018. There has been confirmation from the arena in Providence where Raw will be held on December 18th that Brock Lesnar is going to make his return there.
Maybe the WWE wants to start a build for the Royal Rumble on December 18th, or perhaps it is just another way for them to sell some more tickets to the show.
