Raj Giri of Wrestling Inc reports that WWE Universal Champion Brock Lesnar is not currently scheduled to appear at next Sunday’s Elimination Chamber pay-per-view or this Monday’s RAW in Grand Rapids, Michigan. Giri also notes that Lesnar is not scheduled for March 10th’s Fastlane show, which is the very last WWE pay-per-view before WrestleMania 35.

While Lesnar was once listed for the post-Elimination Chamber RAW in Lafayette, LA, as well as the February 25th RAW in Atlanta, GA, the WWE Universal Champion has since been removed from those events.

WWE is only advertising Brock Lesnar for one show before WrestleMania 35 and that is the March 18th episode of RAW from Chicago’s Allstate Arena.

Giri notes that Lesnar did not appear at last year’s Fastlane event, however that event was a single branded SmackDown only show. Lesnar did work several live events after last year’s Royal Rumble and before WrestleMania 35, but as Giri notes, he has not worked any live events since then.

Lesnar became a two time Universal Champion after defeating Braun Strowman for Roman Reigns‘ vacated title at the Saudi Arabian Crown Jewel pay-per-view. Lesnar is scheduled to defend his Universal Championship against this year’s Men’s Royal Rumble Match winner, Seth Rollins, at WrestleMania 35.
