Report: Update On Brock Lesnar's WWE WrestleMania 36 Plans

Who will The Beast Incarnate be facing?

Earlier this month, a report from talkSPORT indicated that WWE planned to have Brock Lesnar defend his WWE Championship against either Cain Velasquez or Tyson Fury at WrestleMania 36.

However, according to Dave Meltzer, this is not currently the plan. He wrote in the Wrestling Observer Newsletter that while he does not know who Lesnar will face at The Showcase Of The Immortals, it will not be Fury or Velasquez.

Meltzer did note that we may see Seth Rollins face off against The Beast Incarnate again, adding The Beast Slayer is, "as likely as anyone."

For the avoidance of doubt, Meltzer penned: "There is no obvious opponent for Lesnar at this point for either the Rumble or Mania. Usually you can tell by this time. Because nobody is obvious for those spot, there were rumors this past week of Cain Velasquez (who is in the Rumble as of right now) and Tyson Fury as Lesnar’s WrestleMania opponents popped up. The only thing we’ve been able to confirm is Lesnar will be on Mania barring injury, and neither Fury nor Velasquez will be the opponent...Rollins maybe as likely as anyone, since he’s pushed repeatedly how he has two wins over Lesnar, and with Lesnar gone, has been promoted as the top male star on the Raw brand."
