Brock Lesnar hasn’t been seen on WWE television in a few weeks now, but it is indeed known that he will be facing off with The Undertaker at Hell In A Cell in October. He’s going to take on Big Show at the Madison Square Garden live special for WWE Network and even appear on the “Stone Cold Podcast,” but will he be on Monday Night Raw tomorrow?
As of now, WWE.com does not have Brock Lesnar listed as appearing on Raw tomorrow night at the First Niagara Center in Buffalo, New York. He is not being advertised to appear, but that doesn’t mean he won’t.
In all actuality, WWE doesn’t have Lesnar appearing next week either on the next Raw. Now, WWE.com does have him scheduled to appear on the go-home show on October 19, from the American Airlines Center in Dallas, Texas. The Undertaker is listed as “Included Superstars” appearing as well.
This certainly doesn’t mean that Brock Lesnar won’t show up before then, but it seems like WWE is doing a hard-sell for the free month on WWE Network. It’s pretty much Brock Lesnar-month on the WWE Network and that is a big way of the company trying to get more buys for it.
Wrestling Inc. reported that Lesnar vs. Undertaker wasn’t supposed to happen until WrestleMania 32 next year, but it was Vince McMahon calling for the big change. It was actually going to be one of two main events, but McMahon changed his mind and wanted the blow-off match to happen in October.
Yes, this is costing WWE more money to have Lesnar come in now since his plans are usually laid out much more in advance. So with these extra appearances this month for the go-home Raw and Hell In A Cell, he’s going to be making plenty of extra money.
With that being said, don’t expect Brock Lesnar to show up any more on WWE television this month than he is already doing. The Brock Lesnar “Go To Hell Tour” is going to be primarily on the WWE Network.
Lesnar’s opponent for WrestleMania 32 is now kind of up in the air, but there are a few options and rumors swirling around out there.
Monday Night Raw tomorrow is looking to be a big one, but it will be missing a few big names and they are The Undertaker and Brock Lesnar. Paul Heyman could show up for the Hell In A Cell big plug, but don’t expect the “Beast Incarnate.”
