Lesnar vs. Lashley not happening? Aries on El Patron Submitted by Aaron Rift on 04/19/2018 at 10:27 AM
- According to Dave Meltzer of F4WOnline.com, there are no plans for a Brock Lesnar vs. Bobby Lashley despite recent rumors. Meltzer noted the following:
"If Lesnar is really leaving, you can probably get two losses from him, the title loss and hopefully one more to build someone. I don’t think the person that should go to should be over 40 or a part-time because it’s then of limited benefit."
- During this week's Impact Wrestling conference call, Austin Aries commented on the departure of Alberto El Patron and the Redemption PPV main event being changed:
"It’s unfortunate but we’re moving on. All things being equal, I thought the matchup I ended up having at the joint show ended up being more challenging and more exciting. So we’re moving forward, we’re looking forward to the 22nd and really trying to capitalize on some things that maybe a year or two ago we wouldn’t have been talking about in the wrestling landscape. We’re gonna have a couple of the top stars from Lucha Underground competing for the Impact World Championship, and that’s pretty exciting."
