Despite not currently being advertised for Survivor Series we could see Brock Lesnar appear on Raw between now and the November event.
Even though it has only a little more than a week since Brock Lesnar and Braun Strowman battled it out in what was built as a WrestleMania worthy match, the topic of what’s next for both men has already been discussed in great detail. While Strowman appeared 24 hours after being defeated by The Beast to wreak havoc on the Raw roster, Lesnar and his Universal Championship were nowhere to be seen.

Since then, rumors circulated on when exactly we’ll see Lesnar next. Apparently, his championship defense against The Monster Among Men at No Mercy could be the last time we see Lesnar defend his Universal Championship for a while, and the next time Raw‘s biggest prize is up for grabs will be at the Royal Rumble pay-per-view in January.
According to PWInsider, however, that might not be the case. The website noticed that Lesnar is currently being advertised for the edition of Raw taking place six days before Survivor Series. Although the champ isn’t currently booked to appear on the subsequent pay-per-view, if he is appearing on the Raw beforehand, it’s a promising sign that we will, in fact, see another Universal Title match before the year is out.
That just begs the question of who’s next in line to face Brock for the title, and almost all signs point towards Finn Balor. Not only is The Demon long overdue a rematch after having to relinquish the Universal Title over a year ago now, but he also mentioned that he wants his shot while on Raw last week. Seth Rollins is also being touted as a front-runner for a title shot after Balor has been granted his rematch.
Having the Universal Championship around Brock Lesnar’s waist always makes the waters difficult to navigate for WWE. The Beast Incarnate is only going to be around for limited dates and for large periods of time those full-time stars worthy of chasing the title need to fill their time while they wait for Lesnar to return. To not see Lesnar and his title at all between now and January seems pretty absurd, so here’s to hoping that the advertisement of his inclusion on a Raw in November is not merely an oversight by WWE.
