This wouldn't be Lesnar's first meeting with Braun Strowman. The two locked horns at WWE No Mercy in September, with Lesnar earning the win. Lesnar and Kane have never had a televised one-on-one match, but competed on a 2002 house show that ended in a DQ.

Lesnar last competed at WWE Survivor Series in November, where he defeated AJ Styles in a Champion vs. Champion interpromotional match. His last championship title defense was the aforementioned meeting with Braun Strowman in September.
