5 WWE Rumors from this week you need to know (January 1st, 2019)
#4 Strowman's chances at the Rumble
According to the Observer, the WWE are continuing to push for Universal Champion Brock Lesnar to face Seth Rollins at WrestleMania 35, seemingly suggesting that the Architect will win the men's Royal Rumble match at the end of this month.
This match makes sense, with Rollins and the Beast having history, with Seth cashing in Money In the Bank at WrestleMania 31 to dethrone Lesnar for the WWE Championship.
If true though, this rumor seemingly guarantees that Braun Strowman, who is the current number one contender for the title, will not be leaving the Rumble pay per view as Universal Champion.
And with Lesnar reportedly moving on to Rollins after the Rumble, it seems Strowman will have to go to the back of the line, and wait quite some time for his next shot as the red-strapped title.
