Last week, reports surfaced suggesting WWE are not going to use Brock Lesnar on television until after the new year.
This week, per a report from TalkSPORT, it looks like WWE are exploring one of two options for The Beast’s WrestleMania 36 match.
Those options are either a “rubber match” against Cain Velasquez, or a special attraction bout against Tyson Fury – should the Gypsy King defeat Deontay Wilder in February.
For the avoidance of any doubt, here’s what TalkSPORT’s report states: “As far as Lesnar goes, WWE are looking at two options. One would see him face Cain Velasquez in what the company would bill as a ‘rubber match’ as Velasquez dethroned Lesnar for the UFC heavyweight title in MMA and Lesnar defeated Velasquez on his WWE debut at Crown Jewel in October.
“However, if Tyson Fury beats Deontay Wilder to become the WBC heavyweight champion of the world, the allure of having a boxing world champion face Lesnar is expected to be too much for Vince McMahon.”
