Brock Lesnar takes on Braun Strowman at Crown Jewel for the Universal Championship next Friday afternoon after Roman Reigns was forced to relinquish the title as part of his on-going battle with Leukemia.
Many of the WWE Universe is hoping that this could be the chance that Strowman has been looking for to prove that he deserves to be the new top guy in the company, but it could also be where WWE panics and decides to revert back to what they know.
Brock Lesnar has been the main guy in WWE for the past few years and was only overcome by Roman Reigns back at SummerSlam, but this recent turn of fate could mean that WWE pulls Lesnar back and allow him to hold down the top spot in WWE until the company can ground themselves.
One member of the WWE Universe thought this through and decided to ask Dave Meltzer about the chances of Lesnar becoming WWE’s top guy once again at Crown Jewel and even Melzter believes that there’s a chance.
If Vince pays him more than UFC does. https://t.co/zz2Dzrhqdc

Lesnar has always brought a level of realism to WWE and even though it was thought that Reigns would retain his Championship at Crown Jewel, Lesnar was a heavy favorite for the title well ahead of Strowman.
It will be interesting to see if Vince McMahon is able to put forward a plan that would see Lesnar make his return to the company and be the Champion once again as well as working for UFC.
Crown Jewel has become one of the most unpredictable events of the year and it’s highly likely that the Universal Championship match could be pushed forward into Survivor Series instead of having a Champion crowned in Saudi Arabia which means that the ending could be controversial.
