Join WhatCulture's Andy H. Murray and Adam Wilbourn as they bring you Wednesday's rundown of all the latest wrestling news.

We begin with the latest on Brock Lesnar (00:27). The former WWE and Universal Champion had been linked to a SummerSlam 2021 clash with Bobby Lashley, though it sounds like Lashley will need to wait for his long-sought-after dream match, as it looks like WWE isn't factoring Lesnar into its summer pay-per-view plans at the moment.
