Speculation That Brock Lesnar Could Be SmackDown Bound


With Brock Lesnar challenging Kofi Kingston, as well as his increased appearances for SmackDown Live, there is speculation Lesnar could become blue brand exclusive.

With Brock Lesnar challenging Kofi Kingston for his WWE Championship, alongside the amount of SmackDown dates he is appearing for, there is speculation that ‘The Beast Incarnate’ will soon be a blue brand exclusive. Many believe this move is being made to coincide with WWE‘s deal with FOX. 

Dave Meltzer of F4WOnline.com, recently addressed the situation, saying:

“I kind of asked about that [Brock Lesnar situation] and I was told that one hand doesn’t know what the other hand is doing… who is on what roster is far more carefully kept secret,” he explained. “Only a few people know. But having said that, I thought that Lesnar was going to be on SmackDown anyway because of the [Kofi] Kingston [match].”
