PWInsider.com is reporting former AWA and WWE wrestler Brad Rheingans is traveling with Brock Lesnar to Tokyo, Japan this week.
It was previously reported that Lesnar was only agreeing to appear on the WWE live event, now being hyped as “Beast In The East”, because he and Rheingans, who is an amateur wrestling legend, planned to visit retired Japanese wrestler Masa Saito.
It’s not known if they will go to meet Saito or if he would attend the WWE show now that Lesnar is on the card, but it has been confirmed Paul Heyman will not be there.
Heyman is not traveling with Lesnar on the tour; he was originally advertised for the 7/4 WWE “Beast in the East” live event, but has since been pulled from advertisements. It seems likely that if he’s not already there, Heyman won’t make the trip with WWE crew.
