WWE RAW: 3 big backstage rumors that could have a major impact on tonight's show (2nd December)
Monday Night RAW continues to be the flagship show of WWE, and with Paul Heyman as the executive director, we have seen a lot of positive changes of late.
In this article, we will take a look at 3 of the biggest backstage rumors that can have a direct effect on this week's episode of the Red brand.
With Survivor Series done and dusted, WWE will start their build towards the next PPV and hopefully, we will get to see the start of some new rivalries. However, there's some bad news in regards to 2 Superstars and more details on a top Superstar's new character:
#3 Brock Lesnar to be absent from the show
The Beast Incarnate had quite a showing at Survivor Series 2019 when he managed to decimate Rey Mysterio and retain the WWE Championship in a match that saw Mysterio's son get heavily involved.
Despite the combined effort of the father-son duo, Brock Lesnar was able to come out victorious at the show. However, after his win, the WWE Champion was not seen on RAW last week and backstage rumours suggest that fans should abandon hope of seeing him before January, around the time for Royal Rumble.
Here is what Dave Meltzer had to say on Wrestling Observer Newsletter:
Lesnar is back on hiatus until probably around January. His next show is the Rumble so he’ll be back when it comes to shoot his angle for that show.
As mentioned, it is highly unlikely that Lesnar will be part of RAW in any form. With Rey Mysterio as the US Champion, it is clear that the feud between Mysterio and Lesnar has come to an end. So the question arises, who will WWE build to take on the former Universal Champion at Royal Rumble?
