Tickets are reportedly not moving as briskly as WWE officials would like for tomorrow, Saturday, December 19's live event from The Forum in Inglewood, California - Brock Lesnar's first show since Hell in a Cell back in October - so the company is bringing in a hype man.
Paul Heyman confirmed on Twitter that he will be in Los Angeles for Lesnar's next match.
CONFIRMED! I will, indeed, be with @BrockLesnar at the LA Forum this Saturday Night! @WWE #Advocate #Beast https://t.co/RxYMKeRG4g— Paul Heyman (@HeymanHustle) December 18, 2015
We've known for a little while that that match would be against Alberto Del Rio. Since the League of Nations member left TLC with the United States Championship, many venues online are reporting this is a title bout, although I can't find any WWE affiliated sites confirming as such.
If the title isn't on the line, that pretty much confirms the outcome of the match, but it's also a house show, so it's not surprise that the babyface would win.
If it is a championship match, it'll be interesting to see how they book it, since it seems unlikely WWE would want even a secondary belt like the U.S. title disappearing for the rest of the year. On the other hand, Brock is booked for another house show and a Raw between now and the next pay-per-view (PPV), and is all but confirmed for Royal Rumble, so anything is possible.
At least we know Paul will be there to say something stupid.
