Brock Lesnar successfully managed to defend his WWE Championship title against Rey Mysterio at Survivor Series. According to reports, he will be taking some rest from WWE. The reports also state that the Beast will make his comeback at Royal Rumble and could defend his WWE Championship at WrestleMania 36. According to TalkSport, WWE officials currently have two players in mind.
The reports states that Beast may face either his UFC rival Cain Velasquez or boxer Tyson Fury at the greatest stage of all time. However, the match between Lesnar and Tyson Fury is not very likely to happen as Fury is scheduled to face Deontay in February. If Tyson Fury gets injured in the match, he may require some time to heal and train.
After defeating Braun Strowman at the Crown Jewel PPV, boxer Tyson Fury challenged WWE Champion Brock Lesnar for a match at the biggest event in WWE. Fury appeared as a guest on the recent episode of Corey Graves’ ‘After the Bell’ podcast. He revealed that he is not giving up on his pro-wrestling dreams and wished to fight the Beast Incarnate. He said that he could have fought Brock Lesnar in the first place, but Cain Velasquez came in and grabbed Lesnar’s attention.
“I want to fight Brock Lesnar next. One clip from the Gypsy King and he’ll wake up in Tokyo,” said Fury.

A rivalry that began almost ten years ago in a UFC octagon, finally concluded when Lesnar redeemed his WWE Championship at the Crown Jewel PPV. From the start of the match, Lesnar tried to take control, but Velasquez kept on countering him with some incredible MMA moves. After a few combos, Velasquez downed Lesnar with a knee and started delivering punches. Lesnar countered by kicking his opponent on the knee and trapping him in in a Kimura for a tap-out victory.
