Brock Lesnar not scheduled for WWE Money in the Bank


It appears that Brock Lesnar's Universal Championship reign will extend into the summer.

Dave Meltzer reported on Wrestling Observer Radio last night that Lesnar won't be on WWE's Money in the Bank pay-per-view, which will take place at the Allstate Arena in Rosemont, Illinois on June 17th. After Money in the Bank, WWE's next two PPVs are Extreme Rules in Pittsburgh on July 15th and SummerSlam in Brooklyn on August 19th.

Lesnar signed a new deal with WWE after retaining the Universal title against Roman Reigns at WrestleMania 34, but the length of that contract -- aside from it being short-term -- isn't yet known.

When Lesnar will be making his next appearance isn't known either. He most recently defeated Reigns in a steel cage match at the Greatest Royal Rumble, with it ending in controversy as Reigns speared him through the side of the cage.

One men's ladder match and one women's ladder match have been announced for Money in the Bank, featuring wrestlers from both Raw and SmackDown in the same match.
