Update On Lesnar "No-Showing" RAW, Cena vs. Undertaker At WrestleMania 34
WWE|By Matt Boone|Tue, March 13, 2018 - 10:11AM EDT
- As we reported leading into last night's RAW, the heel turn of Brock Lesnar continued this week with WWE keeping him off the show after advertising him to have a face-to-face confrontation with Roman Reigns for two weeks in a row. The segment saw Reigns confront Vince McMahon, leading to him being "temporarily suspended." Vince promised Lesnar will be on RAW next week and that their match at WrestleMania 34 will happen as planned. As noted, this is all an attempt by WWE to get Reigns cheered by fans, and to make his storyline with Lesnar feel as much like a shoot as possible.
- We also reported prior to RAW that this week was expected to be the time where John Cena starts the build to his long-rumored showdown with The Undertaker at WrestleMania 34. Cena pretended like he didn't have a storyline or match for WrestleMania during a promo segment on RAW that saw him join the fans in the crowd, even taking a sip of someone's beer. Cena then claimed that he wasn't supposed to do so, but ended up going on to challenge The Undertaker to a match at next month's big event.
