As pointed put by Raj Giri of WrestlingInc.com, Lesnar currently isn't being advertised for the upcoming Elimination Chamber or Fastlane pay-per-views. The Universal Champion was advertised for the Feb. 18 and 25 episodes of Monday Night Raw, per Giri, but it seems as though they've pulled him out of the two shows.
Giri also noted that between now and WrestleMania, Lesnar has only been advertised for the March 18 episode of Raw. No surprises here, as the part-time superstar once again is being forced to only work a limited schedule amid his Universal Championship reign.
Daniel Bryan is set to defend his WWE Championship in an Elimination Chamber match at the Feb. 24 pay-per-view, and it's likely he'll put it on the line again at Fastlane. But it's an interesting decision for the WWE to only put one of the two major championships on the line, while the other title holder gets to sit at home.
And so, WWE fans can expect to see very little of the Universal Champion before he puts the title on the line against Rollins. Mind you, fans have been accustomed to this for two years, so we can't complain too much.
Fans and pundits have been critical of WWE's decision to let Lesnar hold onto the title for the bulk of the last two years, given his part-time status and inevitable departure from the WWE. It doesn't seem like the creative team is a tiny bit worried about that, though.
What This Means
There won't be a whole lot of buildup between Lesnar and Rollins at WrestleMania 35, since the former isn't scheduled to appear much before then. On the bright side, Daniel Bryan will have a couple more epic title defenses before the big show.
