New WWE World Heavyweight Champion Brock Lesnar is not being advertised for Monday night’s WWE Raw and isn’t scheduled to make another appearance until the Raw just before Night of Champions.

The next pay-per-view is scheduled for September 21, meaning Lesnar is slated to appear on Raw on September 15.

Wrestlezone notes that Lesnar filmed a bunch of footage during SummerSlam weekend and prior to Raw the night after the PPV, so it’s likely more pre-taped Lesnar footage could air tonight and leading up to September 15.

“Last week’s Lesnar/Heyman pre-taped segment was originally scheduled for tonight, but WWE decided to air it last week, and tonight will feature John Cena’s response,” it added.

Cena is slated for a rematch with Lesnar at Night of Champions after getting destroyed at SummerSlam. There are predictions about who Lesnar will face after Cena, including Cesaro and Sheamus.

Also, there are some reports that Lesnar is being advertised for the SmackDown taping at the INTRUST Bank Arena in Wichita, Kansas on October 21–the final television taping before Hell in a Cell.

Dave Meltzer of F4WOnline later reported that WWE officials said the reports are incorrect.

He said that there is a miscommunication of some sort between two parts of the league, as Lesnar is advertised in a video for that SmackDown.

“Talent relations knows nothing of such a booking for Lesnar,” Meltzer wrote on the message board in response to the video.

“There are obviously issues between talent relations and advertising these days.”
