WWE Champion Brock Lesnar is back on hiatus from WWE television.
It was reported by Dave Meltzer in the latest edition of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter that Lesnar will remain on hiatus until probably around January.
By looking at history, it’s likely although not confirmed that he will return to WWE programming in order to start the build for his next feud that will lead to a match being booked at the Royal Rumble pay-per-view event from Minute Maid Park in Houston, Texas.
Also, WWE isn’t advertising him for any upcoming episodes of Monday Night RAW, as of this writing.
Kofi Kingston dropped the WWE Title to Lesnar in the main event of the premiere episode of Friday Night SmackDown on FOX in Los Angeles, California at the Staples Center. This show marked the first episode on FOX and the 20 Anniversary Show.
Lesnar had retained the WWE Title over Velasquez at the Crown Jewel pay-per-view event on Halloween in Saudi Arabia.
In his latest title defense, he beat Rey Mysterio in a No DQ Match to retain the WWE Title at the WWE Survivor Series pay-per-view event in Chicago, Illinois at the Allstate Arena earlier this month.
