According to the latest edition of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, the plan for the Royal Rumble event will have Brock Lesnar to defend the universal championship against Braun Strowman and Kane in a triple threat match.
The media picked up a couple of notes on the decision that Vince McMahon decides to make triple threat of the event. Obviously this should have been taken from the list of competitors in the morning of the Survivor Series discarded in the Finn Balor process. In principle, the idea of a new confrontation between Lesnar and Strowman was greatly endorsed, but eventually it was abandoned by McMahon himself. who felt it was too early for “The Menster Among Men” to be defeated again. Perhaps the triple threat will protect Strowman and allow the listener to grab Kane.
Although the plan may change, so far, this is WWE’s way of thinking. Meanwhile, the next week Brock Lesnar will appear in Monday Night Raw and there is definitely an announcement about Royal Rumble.
