Brock Lesnar Pitched As Stone Cold’s WrestleMania Opponent, Plans Changed

WWE will be holding their WrestleMania 39 Premium Live Event on Saturday, April 1 and Sunday, April 2 from SoFi Stadium in Inglewood, California and the company is looking to stack their card and make it the biggest WrestleMania of all time based on recent reports of who the promotion wants to bring back and the matches they want to have.

Fightful Select previously reported that a pitch was made to WWE Hall of Famer Stone Cold about a big money matchup against Undisputed WWE Universal Champion Roman Reigns at WrestleMania 39 and The Texas Rattlesnake was even offered an “enormous” amount of money to do the match.

Dave Meltzer revealed on a recent edition of the Wrestling Observer Radio Program that the match that was actually pitched for WWE Hall of Famer Stone Cold was not against Roman Reigns, but Brock Lesnar, though from the events that transpired on RAW this past Monday night, it looks like that match is not going to happen anymore. Dave Meltzer also noted that plans can still change for Stone Cold and Brock Lesnar, but that seems unlikely right now and there has been no confirmation yet, though it seems the feud between Brock Lesnar and Bobby Lashley will continue at this Saturday’s Royal Rumble or maybe at WrestleMania.

This is what Dave Meltzer said:

“The [Austin] match that was not Roman Reigns, it was Brock Lesnar.” “But as you can tell pretty much by the show [last night], it’s not happening.”

“It’s not on. Something can happen now. It’s been talked about probably for months. I know when that Brock Lesnar-Gunther thing came up, I was told immediately that’s not happening or that’s not the idea right now, maybe it’s gonna happen now but the idea was something that’s a secret. Austin was that secret. The match is not on and it looks like it’s gonna be Lesnar with Lashley, based on the show tonight. I don’t have that confirmed that it’s a WrestleMania. Obviously, they will likely be in the Rumble and probably feud and whether that means Montreal [at Elimination Chamber] or WrestleMania, I don’t know but it feels like it’s probably something to do with WrestleMania.”

Meltzer then noted that as far as Roman Reigns goes he is unsure what his WrestleMania plans are, but it will most likely be revealed on Saturday night based on who wins the 30-Man Royal Rumble Match.

This is what Dave Meltzer said:

“As far as Roman Reigns, I don’t know but I figure that whatever Roman Reigns’s situation will be we will know on Saturday night based on who wins the Rumble.”
