Big Update on Brock Lesnar’s Current WWE Schedule, Why Sheamus Missed This Week’s SD! Taping

Big Update on Brock Lesnar’s Current WWE Run

brock lesnarAccording to WZ reader Drake Hulin, Brock Lesnar is being advertised for the Raw taping prior to Night of Champions this year, which gives us a pretty good indication that he will be around until at least the fall.

Raw takes place on September 15th in Lafayette, Louisiana, and as of now John Cena, Brock Lesnar, Roman Reigns, Seth Rollins, Triple H and Randy Orton are being advertised for the show.

An internet pre-sale begins on Thursday from 10AM–10 PM and you can use the password RAWCAJUN to obtain tickets. General on-sale for the event begins Friday.

Paglino: Of course “cards are always subject to change,” but reports over the past couple weeks have noted Lesnar is in fact scheduled to work this year’s Night of Champions PPV, as WWE wants to “stack the card’s deck” to ensure fans renew their expiring Network subscriptions.

This also makes the possibility of Lesnar winning the WWE World Title at Summerslam much more realistic, as it would be senseless to crown a new champion who won’t be appearing at an event called “Night of Champions.”

Why Sheamus Missed Smackdown This Week

According to, WWE star Sheamus missed this week’s Smackdown taping due to severe flu.

Sheamus was originally set to face Rusev on last night’s live WWE Main Event broadcast, but of course that match was scrapped.
