The Beast Incarnate, Brock Lesnar, has not been seen since destroying Randy Orton at SummerSlam this year.
The original plan for Lesnar at the Royal Rumble, was to face off against Universal Champion Finn Balor, but with Balor injured, plans have obviously changed.
The new plan is said to have Brock Lesnar challenge Kevin Owens at the PPV for the Universal Title.
Balor’s original return date was to be around the time of Fastlane, but there are currently no plans to have him compete at the Royal Rumble PPV, but never say never, just have a look at Edge and John Cena returning early from injury and winning the Rumble match.
It’s very possible that Balor returns early and competes in the Rumble match, and even win it, if WWE are still high on him, then not compete until he is cleared to.
Kevin Owens vs Brock Lesnar has been a dream match for most fans since Kevin Owens debuted in NXT, and now those dreams may become reality for WWE’s top prize.
