In an update on Brock Lesnar's future with WWE, Dave Meltzer of F4WOnline.com/The Wrestling Observer Newsletter noted that WWE officials are currently under the belief that it would be best to only book Lesnar for WWE's biggest pay-per-view events, such as WrestleMania and the Saudi Arabian shows.
Meltzer also noted that one idea that was being discussed for Lesnar for next year's WrestleMania was to have him compete in a rematch against Drew McIntyre, but those plans may have changed.
Meltzer reported the following:
"It was said that for Lesnar, like for Tyson Fury (who issued a challenge to Drew McIntyre this past week for a match), that it's at this point Saudi Arabia and WrestleMania as the only shows that make sense right now and the belief right now is Saudi Arabia won't happen this year. Lesnar's name had been talked about in WWE in reference to a Drew McIntyre rematch for this coming WrestleMania, but that was if McIntyre was to retain the title, which has also been considered to go to Randy Orton, who in theory would be earmarked for Edge and not Lesnar. But nothing in that direction is close to being decided."
