WWE news: Brock Lesnar manipulates Sami Zayn into premature Universal title match

The Incarnate Beast Brock Lesnar forced Sami Zayn to fight Roman Reigns for the Universal Championship on WWE SmackDown.

Initially, Sami Zayn was supposed to face The Tribal Chief for the title in Day 1 pay-per-view after he won a Battle Royale last week to earn the chance. On the latest edition of SmackDown, Zayn faced a returning Brock Lesnar, who also had his eyes set on the Universal Championship.

The former Intercontinental Champion tried to explain to The Beast Incarnate that he was next in line for the coveted title at the upcoming pay-per-view. But Lesnar turned The Great Liberator upside down and manipulated him into taking his chance in this week’s edition of the Blue Mark.

Lesnar also said that he would be in Zayn’s corner when he takes on The Head of the Table tonight.

Could we see Brock Lesnar vs. Roman Reigns one more time on WWE Day 1?

During a backstage segment with Sonya Deville, Sami Zayn, and Brock Lesnar, it was revealed that The Beast Incarnate would face the winner of tonight’s Universal Championship on WWE Day 1 for the title.

Zayn, at one point, tried to withdraw from the match, but agreed due to being bullied by Lesnar.

Roman Reigns has dominated the blue brand for over a year, defeating big-name stars like John Cena and Edge. It is highly unlikely that he will hand over the title to Sami Zayn at this point.

At WWE Crown Jewel, Reigns successfully defended his title against Brock Lesnar, but was unable to get the job done without outside help.

As such, Brock Lesnar is technically owed a rematch against the Tribal Chief. This means that on WWE Day 1, we could see the two Titans fighting once again.
