Report: Brock Lesnar To Wrestle At Saudi Arabia Show In November

The Beast is back.

Brock Lesnar made a surprising return to WWE on Sunday at Hell in a Cell, interrupting the main event bout between Roman Reigns and Braun Strowman. Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer reports that Lesnar's return had been planned for some time and that Lesnar is scheduled to wrestle at the upcoming Saudi Arabia show.

WWE has yet to announce the Saudi Arabi show, but it is set to take place on Nov. 2. Along with Brock Lesnar's return, Shawn Michaels is reportedly planning to come out of retirement and work one more match at the event.

Lesnar battled Reigns for the Universal Title at the Greatest Royal Rumble this past April in Saudi Arabia. The match was mired in controversy over whose feet touched first after Reigns speared Lesnar through the cage and to the floor. Reigns got his revenge at SummerSlam, finally slaying the Beast to capture the Universal Title.

Reigns defended the title at Hell in a Cell against Strowman on Sunday, but the bout ended in a no contest after Lesnar entered the cell and laid out both men.

Meltzer also noted that Lesnar still plans to fight for the UFC in 2019.
