It seems that Brock Lesnar’s Wrestlemania 33 opponent has been revealed. No, it’s not Goldberg. In all honesty, I am surprised by who Vince and company chose to face Brock Lesnar at Wrestlemania 33. If the reports are true because now they are rumors, then Brock Lesnar will be facing Shane McMahon at Wrestlemania 33.
The same source also indicated that we are indeed going to be seeing Brock Lesnar go up against Goldberg at Survivor Series, instead of Wrestlemania. The reasoning for this happening at Survivor Series is that WWE wants to capitalize on the release of the WWE 2k17 Video Game and it comes out a few weeks before Survivor Series. If Shane McMahon is indeed going to be Lesnar’s opponent at Wrestlemania, I don’t understand or agree with that. I don’t agree with who WWE chose because it won’t be a good match at all.
I figured it wasn’t going to be Goldberg at Wrestlemania, but I figured WWE had the best shot to make a new star here and have someone like Samoa Joe be the one to beat Brock Lesnar. The fact that WWE is going with Shane at Wrestlemania to face Lesnar is a befuddling to me. I understand this is steaming from what Brock Lesnar did to Randy Orton at Summerslam, but to have Shane go up against Lesnar at Mania is odd. The only thing I could think of that would make sense is that Lesnar and Shane have the storyline already put into place.
The other reason I figured we would see Samoa Joe go up against Brock is that Wrestlemania is in Orlando. It is in the NXT backyard, and I figure we will see some match between a WWE superstar and an NXT superstar. I figured this would be the spot to have it because if you have the NXT star beat the WWE star, you are already shot up the rankings.
This is only a rumor and should be taken with a grain of salt. It should also be noted that we are still a few months away from Wrestlemania and anything can happen. However, one thing I can guarantee is Inscriber will keep you up to date as we get close to the “Super Bowl” of professional wrestling.
