While it hasn’t been very long since Brock Lesnar overcame the challenge of Braun Strowman and retained his Universal Championship at No Mercy, people have already started speculating about his next opponent.
During the latest episode of Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer talked about the Beast and revealed the name who could possibly be next person to challenge for the Universal Championship.
Dave mentioned that the first ever Universal Champion Finn Balor may finally get his rematch for the title he never lost against Brock at Survivor Series or Royal Rumble PPV.
According to him, WWE originally had plans for both Seth Rollins and Finn Balor to challenge for the title before WrestleMania 34. Since Rollins is busy in a storyline with Dean Ambrose, the most likely person next in line for a shot at the Universal title is Balor.
Though it’s worth mentioning here that Lesnar is expected to hold the belt for a while and drop it to Roman Reigns at WrestleMania 34 next year.
So even if Finn does end up being the next opponent of Brock Lesnar, he is not expected to win the title and instead, he will most likely be just another stop on Lesnar’s road to WrestleMania, much like Samoa Joe and Braun Strowman.
