Backstage update following last night’s RAW involving Brock Lesnar and Roman Reigns

During last night’s RAW, WWE advertised a face-to-face Brock Lesnar and Roman Reigns segment to begin building up their match for WrestleMania 34. That confrontation did not end up taking place as advertised, with Reigns instead cutting a promo alone.

While there is no official word as to why Lesnar did not appear as advertised, Dave Meltzer of The Wrestling Observer/Figure Four Online reports that the planned segment involving Lesnar and Reigns was still in several of the scripts last night.

It isn’t known why the script was changed last minute and it appears Lesnar was not even backstage in Anaheim last night per the same report. Lesnar was reportedly in Las Vegas on Sunday night (the site of the Elimination Chamber) as UFC President Dana White tweeted a photo of the two, with Lesnar wearing a UFC t-shirt.

Lesnar is currently not booked for RAW next Monday night in Milwaukee. He is currently scheduled to face Kane this Saturday at a live event in Chicago. His next TV appearance as of now, will be in two weeks when Raw takes place in Detroit. WWE.com did also attempt to address Lesnar’s absence from RAW, leading many to believe it’s still storyline.
