The latest edition of Wrestling Observer Newsletter provides some update on the situation and reveals the reason why The Beast Incarnate was moved to the Blue Brand.
According to the Newsletter, Officials from the Fox Network wanted either Ronda Rousey or Brock Lesnar as their big sports star and since Rousey was not available for the draft, the decision was made to put Lesnar on the show.
It’s likely that the company had planned this move from a while since Brock’s WWE Championship win over Kofi Kingston played an important part in this switch.
As far as Brock’s next opponent Cain Velasquez is concerned, it’s said that there is no word yet on which brand the former UFC Champion will end up on.
WWE has also not provided any update on his future after his upcoming match and it’s likely that the company will only address his status after the upcoming Crown Jewel event is in the books.
