According to recent reports, Brock Lesnar is currently a free agent. The news of his contact expiring comes alongside reports of his merchandise being removed from official sites of WWE.
According to sources, the two sides have been working on a new contract, the contents of which surely includes a limited number of part-time appearances of the former WWE champion.
WWE is in no hurry to sign Lesnar at the moment. Likewise, ‘The Beast Incarnate’ is looking to check out offers away from WWE, including UFC. However, the signing of a new deal seems set for sometime in the near future. WWE values Lesnar as an attraction and looks to use him as a sporadic treat for the fans.
While Lesnar has not appeared on WWE since Wrestlemania 36, when he was defeated by Drew McIntyre for the WWE Championship, his manager Paul Heyman has returned in an on-screen capability as the manager of the villianous WWE Universal champion Roman Reigns.
Lesnar Has Had A Successful WWE Career
After debuting on WWE’s main roster in 2002, Lesnar won the WWE Championship just five months after his debut at the age of 25, becoming the youngest champion in the title’s history. Following his match with Goldberg at WrestleMania XX, he left WWE and pursued a career in the National Football League (NFL).
In April 2012, Lesnar returned to professional wrestling, rejoining WWE after an eight-year hiatus. Two years later, at WrestleMania XXX, he defeated The Undertaker to end his legendary undefeated streak at WrestleMania.
He achieved world champion status five times after this, having won the WWE World Heavyweight/WWE Championship in 2014 and 2019 as well as the WWE Universal Championship in 2017, 2018, and 2019. His first reign as Universal Champion was the longest world title reign in WWE since 1988 at 503 days, the sixth-longest world championship reign in the promotion’s history.
Lesnar remains the only person in history to hold a UFC championship and WWE world championship. Lesnar is an eight-time world champion in WWE, a one-time world champion in NJPW and IGF, a one-time heavyweight champion in the UFC, and a one-time heavyweight wrestling champion in the NCAA, the only person in history to win a championship in each of those organizations. In addition, he has won the 2002 King of the Ring tournament, the 2003 Royal Rumble and the 2019 Money in the Bank.
It is to whether his eventual comeback to WWE results in a collision with frequent rival Roman Reigns. For now, the comeback remains a matter of question and time.
