It leaves a spot open. We are on our way to Summerslam with just over six weeks to go before the show. As usual, WWE will be going out of its way to make the show even bigger than usual and the show will have full fans in a huge stadium for the first time in a good while. The stars are going to be out, but it seems that WWE will not be having one of their bigger names.
According to the Mat Men Pro Wrestling podcast, Brock Lesnar is not booked for Summerslam due to unspecified creative differences. WWE still wants Lesnar to appear, but also wants him to have him appear on live events. There is no word on when Lesnar will return. His most recent appearance took place at WrestleMania 36 and his contract has since expired.
Lesnar being back could mean a lot. Check out some of his conquerings:
Opinion: If there is one thing that has been proven about Lesnar, it is that money can ultimately talk. It might not seem like Lesnar will be around anytime soon, but one day the paycheck is going to be too alluring. Lesnar is going to be 44 years old this month and he probably understands that his window for such a payday is closing. Odds are he winds up back in WWE one day, and it would surprise me if it is that much longer.
When will Lesnar be back? Who do you want to see him face? Let us know in the comments below.
