Brock Lesnar to defend the Universal title in a triple threat match at the Royal Rumble
It seems like the WWE will continue their multi man match formula going into 2018 as it has been speculated that Brock Lesnar will face Brawn Strowman and Kane at the Royal Rumble.
The No.1 contender’s match between the 2 giants ended in a double count out in the previous edition of RAW.
Dave Meltzer reported that Vince has given the green signal for this match. He picked this match out of the several ideas that were pitched by the backstage officials.
It was earlier speculated that Lesnar would defend the championship against “The Demon” Finn Balor, but the plan was scrapped since Vince did not find Balor “over” with the fans.
The match is expected to be made official in the next week’s episode of RAW after Paul Heyman addresses the situation.
Strowman will go head to head with “The Beast Incarnate” for the second time having already faced off at No Mercy earlier this year.
Kane finds himself in the title picture for the first time since Hell In A Cell 2015, where he faced Seth Rollins for the WWE Championship.
It is expected that Lesnar will pick up the win and head into WrestleMania as the champion to face against “The Big Dog” Roman Reigns in a highly anticipated rematch from WrestleMania 31.
