Has Brock Lesnar's next opponent been decided?

After being defeated by Roman Reigns at SummerSlam, Brock Lesnar has once again disappeared from the scene. A temporary hiatus as "The Beast" is already advertised for Day One, the first big event of 2023, but it could be back sooner than expected.

In fact, several internal sources give for certain its presence at Crown Jewel, a show to be held on November 5 in Saudi Arabia. On that occasion Lesnar could face none other than Daniel Cormier, a true legend of MMA and former star of the UFC (now commentator).

Cormier was announced for Extreme Rules as a referee in the Fight Pit between Matt Riddle and Seth Rollins, but may soon clash with Lesnar. The indiscretion was launched by Dave Meltzer: "He has always wanted to work with WWE in some way and now he will have the opportunity to do so.

Maybe many don't know it, but Cormier originally wanted to do pro-wrestling and many think that he can do a match with Brock. I haven't talked to him for years and I don't know his real intentions, so we'll see."

Meltzer added: "His name has been mentioned multiple times as a possible commentator on SmackDown. FOX has loved him since his UFC days, but he's currently busy with ESPN, so I don't know how he can reconcile the two commitments."

What's next for Brock Lesnar?

The hypothesis of a WWE match between the two dates back to 2019 when, on the occasion of the ESPN Awards, Cormier invited Triple H to organize the aforementioned match. Brock Lesnar had challenged Cormier inside in the octagon in 2018, when the latter was UFC champion, but nothing came of it.

The video quickly went viral and was advertised by WWE itself, which teased fans about the possible match between the two within the octagon (we remind you that at the time Lesnar was the Universal Champion). This sensational UFC - WWE crossover could therefore continue since the Stamford Company is on excellent terms with Dana White: Vince McMahon, Stephanie, Pat McAfee and Triple H were framed in the audience last summer at UFC 276 in Las Vegas.

In a recent interview with Logan Paul, Roman Reigns was asked if The Beast was his biggest rival. The Undisputed WWE Universal Champion admitted that Lesnar is indeed his biggest rival. "Me and Brock we've main evented a bunch of huge shows together.

I mean, we covered pretty much the full calendar year, to dotting through it. Big pay-per-views, WrestleMania main event, so I would definitely say he's been thus far my biggest rival," said Reigns.
