After Goldberg made his WWE return at Survivor Series in 2016, the architect of Suplex City in the past few months has had just two major fights with the former besides a few outside the ring skirmishes with other fellow superstars. Lesnar became the new WWE Universal champion at WrestleMania 33 on 2 April.
At the pay-per-view (PPV) show, Lesnar defeated Goldberg for the Universal title in a rematch.
Now that Lesnar has become the Universal champion, the WWE Universe has started speculating as to when and who the wrestler will fight next in the ring.
A report from Wrestling Inc has claimed that Lesnar will not be defending his title at 2017 Payback, which takes place at the AP Center in San Jose, California on 30 April. Added to this, the federation has not advertised Lesnar for any of the Monday Night Raw episodes leading to the Raw exclusive pay-per-view (PPV) show.
However, Lesnar will eventually have to step into the ring and when he does, he could fight with Braun Strowman. The latter came face-to-face with Lesnar after Paul Heyman hinted that his client was ready for a one-on-one fight at the Monday Night Raw episode that aired after the conclusion of the company's biggest PPV show - Wrestlemania.
According to GiveMeSports, Lesnar and Roman Reigns could fight at WrestleMani 34 for the Universal title. This could lead to a fight between Strowman and Reigns at Payback and ignite a feud between the trio for the Universal Championship.
