Lesnar WWE Status News, Cedric Will Go to WrestleMania, Anderson
Wednesday, March 14, 2018
Brock Lesnar's WWE status is currently up in the air as the Universal Champion is reportedly considering leaving the company in favor of returning to UFC and resuming his MMA training. Lesnar will compete against Roman Reigns at WrestleMania this year in what may be his last match with the promotion. The latest Wrestling Observer Radio show has informed listeners that Lesnar is currently leaning towards leaving WWE because the promotion reportedly will not allow him to fight in UFC while under contract. After WWE allowed him to fight at UFC 200, news of Lesnar's failed drug tests caused WWE to reveal that part time stars are immune from their wellness policy. It is possible that WWE does not want to attract any more bad press by allowing Lesnar to fight again while he is signed with them.
Ever since Triple H took control of the 205 Live show, the cruiserweight division has been totally revamped in favor of being more focused on the in-ring competition rather than on characters and storylines. Competitors on the show have been involved in a 16-man tournament to crown a new Cruiserweight Champion at WrestleMania over the past few months now. One match in the semifinals took place on 205 Live last night, and it saw Cedric Alexander defeat Roderick Strong to move on to the finals at WrestleMania. The winner of the upcoming match between Mustafa Ali and Drew Gulak will face Alexander in the finals at the event with the winner of that match then being crowned Cruiserweight Champion.
One of the top tag teams on the Raw brand is the "Good Brothers" themselves, Karl Anderson and Luke Gallows. The two have been teaming up together ever since arriving on Raw back in 2016, and they have also won the Raw Tag Team Championships in the past. Could that all be about to change. After the tag team battle royal on Raw, which was won by just Braun Strowman, Anderson bragged about his offense against "The Monster Among Men" during the match. Anderson took to Twitter and claimed that the WWE audience has not seen what he is truly capable of in the ring, and he seemed to indicate that a possible singles run may be in his future soon.
