Surprising WWE WrestleMania 35 Opponent Reported For Brock Lesnar

Not Braun Strowman; not Drew McIntyre!?

Brock Lesnar's opponent for WrestleMania 35 has been reportedly pencilled in - and it's not one of the two most likely suspects.

According to Dave Meltzer in this week's Wrestling Observer Newsletter, Lesnar's opponent is scheduled to be current Intercontinental Champion Seth Rollins. Meltzer writes:

'While Vince McMahon has been in a shaking up plans mood, Lesnar is right now scheduled to face Seth Rollins at WrestleMania. I haven’t been directly told Lesnar is beating Strowman again, as that would make his third singles PPV win over Strowman. However, Lesnar vs. Rollins is scheduled to play off Roman Reigns in some fashion, so Reigns’ name and illness are scheduled to continue to be used in storyline going forward.'

Since turning face, Rollins has consistently been one of WWE's biggest babyfaces, and one of the most popular Superstars on Raw. Still, this news may come as surprising to many, given the recent attention paid to Braun Strowman and (to a slightly lesser extent) Drew McIntyre relating to Lesnar's Universal Championship reign.

Strowman lost to Lesnar at Crown Jewel after interference from Baron Corbin, seemingly setting up a rematch somewhere down the line. As things stand, Braun will earn a rematch at the Royal Rumble if he defeats Baron Corbin at December's TLC show - but he is set to undergo elbow surgery which could rule him out of that event.

Similarly, McIntyre has been portrayed very strongly in recent weeks - defeating Kurt Angle clean, eliminating Samoa Joe in seconds at Survivor Series, and being one of few roster members able to stand up to Strowman.
