Two Unlikely Names As Brock Lesnar’s Opponent At WrestleMania 36

WWE likes to keep plans for Lesnar under wraps that way word doesn’t get out before they can announce who he’ll be working with at the biggest event of the year for the company. 

Brock Lesnar’s Opponent Unknown

Dave Meltzer reported in the latest edition of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter that although there’s still no word yet on who Lesnar will be facing at WrestleMania with the WWE Title likely on the line, it won’t be against Cain Velasquez or Tyson Fury. 

Per the report, although Lesnar is scheduled for the Royal Rumble pay-per-view, there’s no word on who he will be wrestling at the event. There’s also no word yet on if he will be defending the WWE Championship or appearing in the actual Rumble match. 

It wouldn’t be the first time that a top champion has worked the actual Rumble match instead of defending the title but that hasn’t happened in years. 

Lesnar had retained the WWE Title over Velasquez at the Crown Jewel pay-per-view event on Halloween in Saudi Arabia.

The WWE Champion has yet to wrestle Fury but Fury has stated that he wants a match with Lesnar. That will be on hold for now as Fury takes on Deontay Wilder in February.

WWE presents the WrestleMania 36 pay-per-view event on Sunday, April 5, 2020 in Tampa, Florida at the Raymond James Stadium that will air on the WWE Network.
