Brock Lesnar No Longer Part Of WrestleMania 35 Plans?
Reigning WWE Universal Champion Brock Lesnar is set to defend his title against Braun Strowman on January 27, 2019, at the Royal Rumble pay-per-view event. With WrestleMania 35 ticket sales already in full swing, it’s strange to see Lesnar missing from the promotional advertisements/packages.
On PW Inside Elite audio, Mike Johnson discussed the matter and doubted The Beast’s status for WrestleMania 35.
“I wonder if Brock’s gonna be with them past the Rumble because you know everyone figured Brock was out the door. Is he even factored into their WrestleMania plans? We haven’t seen him advertised or even footage of him being used to promote WrestleMania 35. So I wonder if he’s out the door at the Rumble, but I guess that’s the allure of Brock is that, ‘Is this the end of Brock’s run?’ and it turns out not to be.”

Enzo Amore Reveals Why He Crashed Survivor Series
Former WWE Superstar Enzo Amore attempted to hijack Survivor Series during AOP vs. The Bar’s match but was instantaneously kicked out of the Staples Center by the security.
Amore was seated in the second row in disguise before he was thrown out for crashing the show. During a recent appearance in New York, the ex-205 Live Champion explained his actions.
“Why did I do it? It had nothing to do with my music. I’ll tell you why I did it – cause I knew for a fact Vince McMahon would be heated more than anything in the world – but he’d respect the f*ck out of it. That’s why I did it. Because it was about one person, and that was it. Because I proved to him that I could beat him at his own game of statistics and numbers, and this that and the other, and I don’t even work for your company. I broke no laws, I bought a ticket.”
