Nick Diaz Unleashes on Brock Lesnar, Calls for Fight Against Daniel Cormier

The REAL Reason Brock Lesnar Wasn't Mentioned On WWE Raw This Week

In a post on Instagram, UFC welterweight Nick Diaz called out light heavyweight and heavyweight champion Daniel Cormier, as well as Brock Lesnar. To never actually pull the trigger on that would be an enormous waste of time in some ways, though the storyline hasn't played out as well as WWE had hoped, so scrapping the match might also be looked at as a way of cutting their losses before wasting even more time.

The rumors and speculation have all said that Lesnar would put his title on the line at SummerSlam and that it would likely be his last match in WWE.

Well, the heels have now been picked up.

Rousey is now preparing for Extreme Rules where she will be part of the RAW Women's Championship Match between title-holder Alexa Bliss and Nia Jax. While he's been gone, Roman Reigns has been on television telling the fans that Lesnar doesn't care about WWE and comes and goes as he wants. The Wrestling Observer Newsletter reported this week that Vince McMahon made the decision not to mention Lesnar's UFC 226 appearance on this week's RAW to focus on the build for Sunday's Extreme Rules pay-per-view. It is now believed that was done on goal and to keep the focus on Extreme Rules and its build-up.

It received a special Bafta tribute in 2015 and won three Golden Globes, 15 Primetime Emmy Awards and 69 Emmy nominations. Brian Percival (" The Book Thief "), who directed the original series' pilot, will direct the film.

Lesnar's opponent for SummerSlam has yet to be decided. The hints were confirmed when UFC President Dana White was affirmative to the fact that DC will indeed face the current WWE Universal Champion Lesnar next for the Heavyweight strap.

It has been years, but WWE is insistent on making Roman Reigns a super babyface and the face of the company, but it just hasn't worked at all.

Whether or not Strowman becoming Universal Champion happens at SummerSlam though remains to be seen, as WWE still seems to be going in the direction where Reigns is the one that finally dethrones The Beast.
