The PWInsider report from Mike Johnson that Lesnar was scheduled to be at Raw are accurate, but the Universal champion is already over on his contractual dates. Lesnar is also well aware that he is losing the title to Roman Reigns at WrestleMania, and Lesnar is far more interested in discussing his next contract than being a team player on his prior deal.
It should be noted that Lesnar is still be advertised for this Saturday night's live event in Chicago against Kane. Lesnar is also booked for the March 9th live event in Minneapolis.
- Coming off this week's RAW, it has been rumored that The Miz will be defending the Intercontinental Title against both Seth Rollins and Finn Balor in a triple threat match at Wrestlemania. According to Justin Barrasso, Braun Strowman and Elias could be added to the match which would make it a five-way.
