In just under two weeks at the WWE's annual Royal Rumble event, Brock Lesnar will defend his Universal Championship against Braun Strowman.

The two men last met at WWE Crown Jewel, where Lesnar made quick work of his opponent thanks to interference from the then acting General Manager, Baron Corbin.

Fans were outraged at the company's decision to put the belt back on Lesnar, and many will be hoping that Strowman can finally capture the belt from the Beast Incarnate at the Royal Rumble.

That, however, seems highly unlikely. While fans would like to see Strowman win the match, many people are expecting Lesnar to walk away with his belt intact. As controversial as it may seem as well, this would prove to be the right decision.

Let's take a look at four reasons why that is the case.

Braun Strowman's recent injuries woes look to have dealt a serious blow to the Monster Among Men's chances of capturing the Universal title.

Strowman has been nursing a shoulder injury for some time now, and it still remains unclear as to whether or not he is going to be fully fit come the Royal Rumble.

WWE creative has had to deal with a lot over the last few months, and it seems highly unlikely that they would risk putting the belt on Strowman, only for him to aggravate his injuries in the build-up to WrestleMania.
