Brock Lesnar Pulled From WWE WrestleMania Backlash

Brock Lesnar has been pulled from WWE WrestleMania Backlash

Former WWE Champion Brock Lesnar has been pulled from the upcoming WrestleMania Backlash premium live event. 

The Beast Incarnate had been advertised for the show, which is scheduled to take place on May 8 in Providence, Rhode Island. Brock had been featured in the advertising for the event on WWE.com, but that is no longer the case.

Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer confirmed that Lesnar was 'definitely booked' for the show, in addition to July's Money in the Bank and August's SummerSlam, but that he is now off the Backlash card. 

No reason for his removal was given.

Lesnar hasn't been seen on WWE television since losing a title unification match against Roman Reigns in the main event of WrestleMania 38 (Night Two). 

Confirmed thus far for Backlash is Charlotte Flair versus Ronda Rousey in a SmackDown Women's Championship I Quit Match, Bianca Belair defending her Raw Women's Title against Sonya Deville and Seth Rollins versus Cody Rhodes.
