Following reports that Brock Lesnar had been pulled from WrestleMania Backlash, a new report has claimed that he was never booked for the show.
Despite originally appearing in advertisements for WrestleMania Backlash, on April 13th it became apparent that Brock Lesnar would no longer be on the show.
A new report has shed some light on the matter, claiming that there were no plans for Lesnar to appear on the show at any time.
In the most recent edition of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, Dave Meltzer called Lesnar’s appearance in initial advertising for the event “a different type of false advertising than WWE usually does.” He added that it wasn’t a case of WWE changing their mind about ‘The Beast Incarnate’ being on the card or a change made due to injury or illness. Instead, the company was always aware that Lesnar was never scheduled to be there but advertised him anyway.
Lesnar’s next advertised appearance is for Money In The Bank on July 2nd in Las Vegas.
Brock Lesnar was last seen at WrestleMania 38 where he put his WWE Title on the line in a ‘Winner Take All Title Unification’ match against Universal Champion Roman Reigns. ‘The Head of the Table’ was able to move past his WrestleMania 31 and 34 defeats to ‘The Beast Incarnate’ as he pinned Brock Lesnar on ‘The Grandest Stage Of Them All’.
Having finally overcome Lesnar, Roman Reigns appeared on the post-WrestleMania edition of SmackDown as the new Undisputed WWE Universal Champion before declaring that the Usos would follow suit and become the Undisputed Tag Team Champions. At the end of the show, Reigns was confronted by Shinsuke Nakamura, but the former Intercontinental Champion was attacked by the Bloodline.
