Backstage News On Brock Lesnar vs. Jinder Mahal At Survivor Series, Lesnar’s Royal Rumble Opponent


As noted, WWE Universal Champion Brock Lesnar will be appearing on Monday’s episode of Raw in Green Bay to respond to the Survivor Series challenge from WWE Champion Jinder Mahal.

Dave Meltzer reported in the latest edition of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter that the idea behind this match has been discussed for a long time. The mentality within the sports entertainment company is that this is not considered a major match. The idea for the match is something for Lesnar to do on a big show and to build to bigger matches for him. It’s likely that Finn Balor will be Lesnar’s opponent for the Royal Rumble in January. As noted, Lesnar vs. Roman Reigns at WrestleMania 34 has been planned for a while now.

Although there’s no word yet on the finish of the upcoming match, the report does note that Lesnar losing to Jinder makes no sense due to his recent wins over Bill Goldberg, Samoa Joe, and Braun Strowman. A finish with outside interference for a DQ or No Contest is always possible but finishes like that at major shows usually don’t sit well with fans.
