This week on Monday Night Raw, Lashley and Reigns were arguing about the upcoming match when Angle said that the match wouldn’t be taking place due to a contractual issue with Lesnar. At the moment there is no word on whether or not this is a legitimate issue or just a storyline, though the amount of discussion about the issue would suggest that the latter is more likely. There is no word on when Lesnar will appear or wrestle again, though Angle did make Reigns vs. Lashley for the pay per view in a singles match.
Here’s the announcement that got us here last week.
Opinion: I’m not going to get upset at this just yet because there’s a very real chance that this part of a storyline or that any actual contractual issue (which I don’t buy in the first place) will be resolved. I was a bit surprised when they didn’t offer many specifics on the upcoming #1 contenders match last week and assuming this is all planned, that’s not the most surprising thing in the world. What I do know is we have less than three weeks to go before Extreme Rules and we don’t have anything major set on the Monday Night Raw side.
What do you think will be put in this match’s place? When will Lesnar wrestle again? Let us know in the comments below.
