Brock Lesnar is the biggest box-office attraction present in the WWE for the past several years who only works in selected shows. Mostly, his appearances are saved for show tapings or special PPV events to gain the maximum number of views. This has been the norm since he returned to the company, all the way back in 2012 after an eight-year-long hiatus.

But it appears that Brock Lesnar is possibly set to work in some of the house shows in the near future. WWE is teasing him for some upcoming non-televised Supershow live events. WWE is advertising Drew McIntyre vs. the winner of Lesnar vs. WWE Universal Champion Roman Reigns at Day 1, for the Supershow in Boston at the TD Garden on Saturday, January 8.

McIntyre vs. Brock Lesnar/Reigns is also being advertised for the Saturday, January 15 Supershow at The Fargodome in Fargo and for the Saturday, February 5 Supershow at the Maverik Center in Salt Lake City, and for the Sunday, February 6 Supershow at the ExtraMile Arena in Boise. Things would ultimately be clarified about these upcoming matches following the WWE Day 1 PPV event.

It was reported back in the summer that Brock Lesnar negotiated his new contract with the WWE for a return at SummerSlam. At that point, it was noted that the company wanted him to commit to working live events. The idea was that the top superstar working live events would increase the ticket sales as the company started touring following the COVID-19 pandemic back in the summer. But to date, he hasn’t worked in one.

In fact, Brock Lesnar has not worked in a non-televised live event since the Madison Square Garden show in New York City on Friday, March 16, 2018. He retained the WWE Universal Title over Braun Strowman and WWE Hall of Famer Kane in a Triple Threat on that night. He also worked the live event on Saturday, March 3, 2018, at the United Center in Chicago, and the live event from the Royal Farms Arena in Baltimore on Saturday, January 27, 2018, and retained against Kane in both of those shows.

As noted, Brock Lesnar vs. Roman Reigns for the Universal Title is scheduled to be the main event of the inaugural WWE Day 1 pay-per-view on New Year’s Day, Saturday, January 1, from the State Farm Arena in Atlanta. No update is available on whether WWE wants to switch the title on that night.
