Last night at WWE Hell in a Cell, the Universal Title Hell in a Cell Match between Roman Reigns and Braun Strowman came to an abrupt end when Brock Lesnar suddenly reemerged and laid waste to everyone in sight. The attack resulted in the match ending in a no contest and the pay-per-view event went off the air with Reigns and Strowman laid out in the ring.
Lesnar’s reemergence was done to set up a match that he will be taking part in.
Dave Meltzer revealed on Wrestling Observer Radio that Lesnar is scheduled to wrestle at a WWE live event taking place in Saudi Arabia on Friday, November 2.
“He’s wrestling in the Saudi Arabia show that hasn’t been announced yet,” Meltzer said.
Meltzer also seemed to confirm that Lesnar will wrestle Reigns again.
“How can it not be on the Network if you’re putting Brock Lesnar against Roman Reigns?” Meltzer asked in response to co-host Bryan Alvarez’s claim that there are no plans to broadcast the unnamed Saudi Arabia event on the WWE Network.
This development has been in the pipeline for some time, as was last night’s no contest result.
Lesnar’s reemergence does not impact his plans to return to the UFC. Meltzer noted that Lesnar is still slated to fight UFC Heavyweight Champion Daniel Cormier early next year.
