There are rumors making rounds that WWE World Heavyweight Champion Brock Lesnar is off television for the remainder of the year. While Lesnar isn't listed on any upcoming WWE shows, the last we heard Vince McMahon wasn't sure when to utilize him next.
The original plan was to do John Cena vs. Brock Lesnar and Roman Reigns vs. Randy Orton in the Hell in a Cell main events this month, however, the injury to Reigns changed that. It doesn't look like Lesnar will be utilized at Hell in a Cell, however, as far as I know, plans regarding his next title defense have not been finalized.
It appears the immediate plan is for Cena to target Seth Rollins, with the tease of a potential Fatal 4-Way [at Hell in a Cell] also involving Dean Ambrose and Randy Orton.
Richard Reacts: Everyone knows my position on Brock Lesnar as WWE World Heavyweight Champion by now - I don't like it. I was optimistic but it looked better on paper than it has actually gone. Lesnar's part-time status has negatively impacted him in the build for shows such as SummerSlam and Night of Champions, not to mention when he's not even on a pay-per-view. I felt the need to address this based on a question sent to me over Facebook.
