WWE News: Brock Lesnar wrestling Rusev this weekend
The Beast Incarnate will be returning to action this Saturday.
Brock Lesnar will make his first appearance in Mexico when he wrestles in this coming Saturday’s Live event, at the Arena Ciudad de Mexico in Mexico City. He is scheduled to wrestle Rusev at the event. This is just 13 days after his squash by Goldberg at Survivor Series.
Lesnar does a handful of live events in a calendar year. This is in fact not even the first time Rusev and Lesnar will be going head to head in 2016. Lesnar faced Rusev in a Live event in San Jose California back in February, where Lesnar made quick work of The Bulgarian Brute.
So far, Lesnar has wrestled 3 of the 4 League Of Nations members at live events. Lesnar faced Del Rio for the United States Championship in Inglewood, California, but that match ended in a Disqualification win for The Beast Incarnate after Rusev attacked him.
This coming Saturday will be Lesnar’s last appearance for the year. His last televised appearance for 2016 was at Survivor Series, where he was squashed in 86 seconds by Goldberg. However, Lesnar has been announced as the second official entry for the Royal Rumble, with the first being his arch-rival Goldberg.
Paul Heyman told Michael Cole in a sit-down interview that Goldberg’s entry to the Rumble prompted Lesnar to do the same.
This will be Lesnar’s third ever Royal Rumble match appearance. His first was in 2003, where he won, and his second was this year. While Lesnar generally competes in the Rumble, it used to be in non-Rumble matches.
However, since the match is most likely going to be the main event (as it usually is), they will need to stack up on the special attractions. Goldberg and Lesnar are two confirmed “attractions”. The Undertaker is a rumoured name to be wrestling at the Pay-Per-View.
