Notes on Lesnar and Wyatt
WWE reportedly considered Bray Wyatt vs. Karrion Kross for WrestleMania 39.
As we’ve noted, at one point the plan was to do Wyatt vs. Brock Lesnar at WrestleMania but Lesnar nixed the match himself for unknown reasons. This caused WWE Elimination Chamber plans to change as Lesnar was booked to defeat Bobby Lashley in their rubber match, then face Wyatt. WWE went with Lashley winning by DQ to set up Lashley vs. Wyatt at WrestleMania 39.
In an update, a new report from PWInsider notes that the plan was still for Lesnar to face Wyatt on the day of the Elimination Chamber event, but plans changed over the course of the day. The finish was changed to the DQ that afternoon. Lesnar was originally booked to win, and Lashley was never booked to win clean.
It’s interesting to note how multiple sources indicate that while backstage at Elimination Chamber, Lesnar was telling some people farewell and that he was “finishing up” while speaking with people before the show. However, word going around is that he was not “necessarily” meaning he was done that night or even at WrestleMania, for what it’s worth.
It’s speculated that there will be one more Lesnar vs. Lashley match on Saturday, May 28 at WWE King and Queen of The Ring in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, as that show means a massive payday for Lesnar, but that match has not been confirmed. It remains to be seen if Lesnar will take a break after that.
Regarding the potential Kross vs. Wyatt match, word is that there was talk of going in that direction but it looks like the talk never went that far into planning.
Lesnar will now face Omos at WrestleMania 39, while Wyatt will face Lashley. There’s no word yet on what Kross will do on The Grandest Stage of Them All this year.
i had no idea wyatt still wrestled i thought he was brought back to do his duck dynasty skits with puppets
Since his return even if most were not televised, he still had more matches than the two move man and Mr. “I get whipped in 90% of my matches and every time I am about to lose, it’s OMG IT’S THE USOS or I do another dirty trick and we call this good booking” Boring Lames in a whole year.
