It looks like Brock Lesnar entering the 30-Man Royal Rumble Match at this month's WWE Royal Rumble 2020 pay-per-view was done by design as a way to set a significant match up for this year's WrestleMania 36 event.
The @WrestleVotes account on Twitter, which has broken many stories in the past, is reporting that sources within the company are claiming that WWE has decided to put Lesnar into the Royal Rumble Match as a way to set up an angle for his potential WrestleMania match a few months later.
The outlet would go on to speculate that this could signal that his WrestleMania opponent might be someone from SmackDown or NXT, as opposed to just talent currently on the RAW brand, as Paul Heyman mentioned multiple times during his promo on this week's red brand show.
Lesnar's inclusion in the Royal Rumble Match opens up a significantly higher number of opportunities for high-profile matches on WWE's highest-profile event of the year.
We will keep you posted here at eWrestling.com as additional details on this story continue to surface!
