Brock Lesnar made a surprise return at last night’s Hell in a Cell pay-per-view to interfere in the main event. That shouldn’t come as a surprise to fans that were paying attention because, on the Raw after SummerSlam, Paul Heyman said that his client was not happy about not being afforded the opportunity to get his rematch at the Hell in a Cell pay-per-view.
As we reported earlier, the plan is for Lesnar to wrestle Braun Strowman and Roman Reigns in a Triple Threat Match for the Universal Championship when WWE returns to Saudi Arabia on 11/2.
WWE has not released an exact number on how much they are getting for every show they put on in Saudi Arabia but the belief is that they received approximately $45 million for the Greatest Royal Rumble in April. This means that WWE can afford to pay more money to bring in bigger names and that’s why they are able to offer big money to names like The Undertaker, Shawn Michaels and Lesnar for the show on 11/2. WWE is also getting big money for the show in Australia on 10/6.
Dave Meltzer is reporting that Lesnar is going to get “well into the seven figures for the matches in Saudi Arabia.”
This just goes to show that you can never predict what happens next with Lesnar because money talks and there’s always another match on the horizon for him as long as the money is right. It is worth noting that Lesnar is in the USADA testing pool. He still plans to fight Cormier in 2019 but he has yet to sign his UFC fight deal.
