Backstage News On Brock Lesnar’s Future

The speculation surrounding Brock Lesnar’s future continues to run rampant following reports he could not agree to a new contract with WWE and is now a free agent.

There have been varying accounts of when exactly Lesnar’s WWE contract expired. He had not worked for WWE since his to loss to Drew McIntyre at WrestleMania 36 back in March. Some believe his deal expired in May or June, while I have heard other sources that do not believe it expired until the end of August.  At one point there were discussions about bringing him back for SummerSlam but they did not get far due to the fact it was another show without a live audience.

Once WWE officially pulled his merchandise, it was clear he was a free agent and his contract status became public.

Recently, Lesnar’s name was brought up as a possibility to face Roman Reigns at WrestleMania 37 next year. The general belief is when WWE wants to use Lesnar again they will be able to work out a deal for him to return. Based on the fact he has not entered the USADA testing pool, it would not appear a return to UFC is on the horizon.

Given AEW’s significant financial resources, they cannot be ruled out as suitors for Lesnar but Chris Jericho downplayed that in a recent interview. Obviously given the nature of this business, people will accuse that of being intentional but there are no indications there have been discussions between AEW and Lesnar.

Tony Khan was asked about Lesnar’s status during a media conference call ahead of AEW’s All Out pay-per-view and refused to comment. He did put Brock over as one of the greatest working big men he has ever seen.

Stay tuned to for the latest on Lesnar’s status.
