On Monday, a report from Fightful surfaced revealing that WWE offered Stone Cold Steve Austin a “huge” amount of money to wrestle Roman Reigns at WWE WrestleMania 39, now that The Rock is believed to be unable to compete in the big event.
In today’s time Wrestling Observer RadioDave Meltzer revealed that Austin’s opponent was actually Brock Lesnar, not Roman Reigns.
“The [Austin] “The match that wasn’t Roman Reigns, it was Brock Lesnar,” Meltzer said. [last night]It’s not happening.”
Meltzer believes Austin vs. Lesnar seems unlikely:
“It’s not on. Something could happen now. It’s probably been talked about for months. I know when that Brock Lesnar-Gunther thing came up, I was immediately told it’s not happening or it’s not an idea right now, maybe it’s going to happen now. But the concept was something that was a secret. Austin was that secret. The match isn’t on and it looks like it’s going to be Lesnar vs. Lashley based on tonight’s show. I’m not sure it’s a WrestleMania. Obviously, they’re probably going to the Rumble and Will likely be in contention and whether that means Montreal [at Elimination Chamber] Or WrestleMania, I don’t know but it seems like it’s probably something to do with WrestleMania.”
Regarding Reigns, Meltzer believed we’ll find out by Saturday’s Royal Rumble: “As far as Roman Reigns, I don’t know but I think we’ll find out Saturday night who wins the Rumble regardless of the Roman Reigns situation.”
