Report – CM Punk & Brock Lesnar Causing ‘Domino Effect,’ WrestleMania XL Main Event



After Brock Lesnar was pulled from the men’s Royal Rumble match and CM Punk vs. Seth Rollins at WrestleMania XL was canceled due to Punk’s torn triceps, WWE has made several changes to the WrestleMania 40 card.

On the latest edition of Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer reported that Punk’s injury and Lesnar’s situation could have had a “domino effect” on the WrestleMania XL card.

WWE was forced to scrap plans for Lesnar, pulling him from the Royal Rumble due to the recent allegations against Vince McMahon made by former WWE employee Janel Grant.

Lesnar was supposed to face Dominik Mysterio at Elimination Chamber: Perth and GUNTHER at WrestleMania XL, but those plans have all been scrapped.

Meanwhile, Cody Rhodes vs. Roman Reigns II is still the planned main event for WrestleMania XL. Meltzer said, “That’s the plan, unless they change the plan.”

Speaking of Punk and Lesnar’s situation, Meltzer noted,

“Whatever the original stuff was, a lot of it has changed because of Lesnar, and now, again, another change because of Punk.”

WrestleMania XL is scheduled for April 6-7 at Lincoln Financial Field in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
