Big Update On Brock Lesnar's WrestleMania 35 Match

Regarding recent WWE creative changes, The Wrestling Observer Newsletter reports that the current plan is for WWE Universal Champion Brock Lesnar to face WWE Intercontinental Champion Seth Rollins at WrestleMania 35. This was not stated but it's likely that Rollins will drop the Intercontinental Title before WrestleMania, perhaps to Dean Ambrose in their match at the December 16 WWE TLC pay-per-view.

Lesnar is not currently scheduled to work TLC but his next major show will be the 2019 Royal Rumble pay-per-view. Lesnar is scheduled to face Braun Strowman at the Royal Rumble. Strowman is undergoing elbow surgery soon but the feeling is that he will be good to go by January.

The Rollins vs. Lesnar feud is scheduled to play off Roman Reigns in some fashion but we don't have specifics yet. We noted before that current plans call for Reigns' leukemia battle to be brought up in the storylines going forward.

Rollins and Lesnar squared off once before at Battleground 2015 when Rollins was the WWE World Heavyweight Champion. Lesnar won the match via disqualification after The Undertaker made a surprise appearance and attacked Lesnar. During an interview last year with Delaware 105.9's Rob Petree on Eagle 977, Rollins talked about possibly facing Lesnar again.

"If it were up to me, it would be tomorrow, ya know? But you got to wait for those title shots," Rollins said. "Our champion currently is Brock Lesnar on Raw - our Universal Champion - and he is a force to be reckoned win. He is also somebody who chooses to defend his title and fight on his own time. So you really gotta be kind of lucky to land those title shots."
