Wrestling champion advertised for wrestling shows

It’s an old joke, but c’mon. There are people old enough to have drivers licenses who’ve never seen the man wrestle on the show he holds the top title for, so... the joke still works.

And just because Little Rock’s Verizon Arena is advertising Universal champion Brock Lesnar for Raw next Monday (July 29), and Pittsburgh’s PPG Paints Arena is doing the same for the following week (Aug. 5), doesn’t mean he’ll be on television both days. The first could be a dark “match”/appearance just to help get folks in the door. It could even be a miscommunication, seeing as WWE hasn’t said anything and isn’t promoting him on their own “Tickets & Events” page for the show...

It’s hard to imagine Lesnar wouldn’t be on the ‘go home’ show for SummerSlam in the Steel City, though...

Allow yourself to imagine a world in which the Beast Incarnate is on your screens the next two Monday nights, though. What can he do to get you more excited for his match with Seth Rollins in Toronto on Sun., Aug. 11?
