At this point, Brock Lesnar is scheduled to defend the WWE Championship at WrestleMania 36 against Drew McIntyre in a marquee match. The challenger competed in the Royal Rumble match and eventually won it to earn the right to choose his WrestleMania 26 opponent. It was declared in the form of the Beast Incarnate at the biggest event of the year.
But before that, two more PPV shows are in store in the WWE calendar. Super ShowDown takes place in Saudi Arabia in February whereas the Elimination Chamber will follow it in March. It looks like he’ll be wrestling in Saudi Arabia show before the ‘show of shows’ emanates on April 5th.
The big news around the show is that we can expect to see Brock Lesnar on this night. This is a rare occasion when he will be in action on two consecutive WWE Network specials.
Brad Shepard of BodySlam.net reported that we won’t have to wait long to see Brock Lesnar wrestle again. He then provided updates stating that Lesnar will be wrestling at the Saudi Arabian event on February 27th. His opponent was not noted as WWE officials may have yet to finalize the name, to date. Here’s what the source has stated,
“A source close to the situation has informed me that the WWE Champion will compete in a match at Super ShowDown in Saudi Arabia.”

As per the earlier reports, Brock Lesnar is under contract with the WWE where he is bound to work in all of Saudi Arabia shows in the future. He receives a lucrative paycheck for making each of the appearances.
The last time WWE hosted a show in Saudi Arabia was in November 2019 under the name of Crown Jewel where Lesnar defeated Cain Velasquez to retain his WWE Championship.
Velasquez lost the match via tap-out lasting for merely over three minutes. There was a rumor that the former UFC Heavyweight Champion may not be done with his former MMA rival and may just decide to come back for a rubber match at Super ShowDown 2020.
But to date, the Mexican fighter is yet to make his comeback on WWE TV. So it’s yet to be finalized whether WWE intends to host this match on February 27th or not.
