Brock Lesnar Set To Defend Championship BEFORE Royal Rumble

Brock Lesnar and Kane are two of the most destructive forces in WWE history. One is a long-time wrestler and UFC martial artist who almost turned pro in the NFL. The other is a 7-foot giant who has terrorized and stomped all over his opponents.

Despite both men spending over a decade together in the WWE, The Big Red Machine has never faced The Beast in a match. But according to Andrew Ravens of eWrestlingNews.com, Lesnar and Kane are being advertised to clash for the Universal Championship on the Jan. 27 live event - which will happen the day before the Royal Rumble.

It should be noted that Lesnar is already set to defend his title against Braun Strowman and Kane at the Royal Rumble, so it's unlikely the championship will change hands the night before.

Lesnar and Kane haven't built up their upcoming feud just yet, as the latter has been clashing with Strowman throughout the past couple of months. The two have been slamming each other through tables and with steel steps, but Lesnar is now set to stand between the two men.

The Lesnar vs. Kane will likely be the only one-on-one match we get to see. The Big Red Machine is now 50 years of age and trying to enter a career of politics, so this current run with the WWE may be his last. It's unlikely he and Lesnar will face off again after this upcoming bout.

As for Lesnar, Kane is one of the few big names left on the roster that he hasn't feuded with yet. John Cena, The Shield, Randy Orton, Big Show and AJ Styles are among the top talents he's faced within his second run with the company.

Though nobody should be surprised if Lesnar squashes Kane, it will be entertaining to see these stars (finally) face off for the very first time.
