WWE Champion Brock Lesnar has gone back to his usual schedule where he only makes part-time appearances on TV programming. He has successfully retained the title against Rey Mysterio at the 33rd annual Survivor Series PPV event on November 24th.
There was speculation that he might get booked in a match at the next event which is WWE TLC on December 15th.
The Target Center in Minneapolis, Minnesota will be hosting the show which is in the hometown of Brock Lesnar. So there was a slight chance that he could have continued making appearances.
However, if the reports are any indications then he is not showing up, anytime soon. Also, WWE has not started any angle on WWE Raw confirming that he is not appearing shortly.
It leads us to the reports of the veteran wrestling journalist who gave an update on the potential return of Brock Lesnar. It was reported by Dave Meltzer in the latest edition of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter that The Beast may remain on the hiatus until probably around January. He will be available to begin his next feud that should lead to a match at the Royal Rumble pay-per-view event from Minute Maid Park in Houston, Texas.
WWE has not booked him either on any of the upcoming episodes of Raw or SmackDown, as of now. Following his Universal title loss at Summerslam, Brock Lesnar defeated Kofi Kingston in the main event of the premiere episode of Friday Night SmackDown on FOX in Los Angeles, California at the Staples Center. This made him the new WWE Champion on the blue brand who then competed in two separate main events.
Brock Lesnar then retained his WWE Title over Cain Velasquez at the Crown Jewel pay-per-view event on Halloween night in Saudi Arabia. Following that, he entered a rivalry against Rey Mysterio to produce the match at Survivor Series. Despite the interference and help from Mysterio’s son Dominick, Lesnar prevailed with an F-5 and came out on top. It will be interesting to see which new opponent will be waiting for the WWE Champion when he comes back around Royal Rumble.
