Brock has been added to the December 19 WWE Live Event in Inglewood, CA. It’s possible (but not confirmed) WWE will stream this show on the Network like they’ve done with past houseshows Brock wrestled at.
Country singer Colter Wall toldSWBooster.com how he & Brock became friends:
“Brock Lesnar, believe it or not, and I didn’t know this till a few weeks ago, lives in Saskatchewan,” explains Wall. “He was born in South Dakota, and then recently, he moved up here because he wants to be a farmer.”
About two weeks ago, Wall had an incident that left him awestruck. “He [Lesnar] sent me an email while I was touring with Shooter [Jennings] and I was driving back from Edmonton and I get an email and it says, ‘Hi, it’s Brock.’ And I look, and it says, ‘Brock Lesnar Gmail’ or something… and I’m freaking out. He wrote, ‘I heard your music, and I just wanted to say I can’t stop listening to your record.’ So after I calmed down a bit, I sent him back an email, and I gave him my phone number. Sure enough, he called me that day.”
Lesnar plugged Wall’s music on his Twitter account which yielded a huge bump for the Swift Current native’s social media following. “I had 600 Twitter followers before all this, and I got up to a little over 2000 after Brock tweeted me – just one tweet.
“Basically, the skinny of it is, he’s [Lesnar is] a really sweet dude, and he really genuinely likes my stuff, which I couldn’t be more happy about. Because of that I’ve been getting a lot of exposure, like more exposure than I ever could have dreamed of, because of how big he is.”
“From what I’ve learned about Brock through all this,” Wall continued, “is I think he’s a pretty down to earth guy in the sense he came from a farm in the middle of nowhere, and he is a millionaire now, and he’s literally fought his way to the top. And when he likes something he really makes it known, and he’s really been working for me. He’s sent me texts saying things like, ‘I’m going to do everything I can for you!’ And I’m just like, ‘Thanks, Brock Lesnar.’”
Saturday, Wall hit the open road eastbound to visit Lesnar on his farm near Moosomin, Saskatchewan and shared his first impression.
“I did not take a selfie,” said the camera-shy musician laughed. “I have a picture of us though. And I like him a lot, he’s a salt of the earth guy.”

The Undertaker and Brock Lesnar will face off for the last time on Oct. 25 when The Phenom and The Beast Incarnate meet inside the only structure that can contain the brutality: Hell in a Cell!
The two proud warriors have split their last two encounters. Lesnar famously snapped The Undertaker’s 21-year WrestleMania undefeated streak in 2014, setting off a goal of redemption for The Deadman. In a career first for The Undertaker, he defeated Lesnar when they met again this past August at SummerSlam, though the win was not without controversy.
In the late moments of the match, The Anomaly made The Undertaker tap out to the Kimura Lock, prompting the timekeeper to ring the bell and Lesnar to think he won. The referee, however, did not see the tap, and commanded the match to continue, giving The Phenom an opportunity to deliver a low blow and apply the Hell’s Gate, causing Lesnar to pass out.
Though the record books consider The Undertaker — one of the most decorated Superstars in WWE history — the official victor, Lesnar’s advocate, Paul Heyman argues The Beast Incarnate was cheated out of his rightful win.
Oct. 25 will not be the first time The Undertaker and Lesnar have dueled inside the dreaded Hell in a Cell. In October 2002, then-WWE World Heavyweight Champion Lesnar overcame The Undertaker in a fiery battle inside the dangerous warzone.
With an incensed Lesnar bent on destroying The Phenom, will the result be the same at this year’s WWE Hell in a Cell? Or will The Undertaker erase the controversy of SummerSlam with a resounding win against the only athlete in history to have held the WWE World Heavyweight, UFC Heavyweight and NCAA national heavyweight championships?
Watch the historic conclusion to Brock Lesnar’s “Go to Hell” tour when The Undertaker and Lesnar tie up inside Hell in a Cell, live Sunday, Oct. 25, only on the award-winning WWE Network.
