The current plan is for Brock Lesnar to defeat Samoa Joe in their upcoming match at WWE Great Balls of Fire according to Dave Meltzer who said, “Joe is meant to be one and done” by Lesnar on today’s Wrestling Observer Radio.
Joe’s not going to win the title “unless they have a complete change of heart,” but depending on the reaction to Joe and if momentum shifts and ratings increase, it may set up a rematch in the future.
The big plan is for Lesnar to take on Braun Strowman at possibly SummerSlam, that is where WWE believe the big money will be.
Ultimately it will come down to the ratings which will dictate where they will take the Joe/Lesnar storyline. Much like the Goldberg/Lesnar feud it could change significantly based on the momentum swing.
