The last time we saw Brock Lesnar compete inside a WWE ring was at WrestleMania 36 earlier this year when he lost the WWE Championship to the Royal Rumble 2020 winner Drew McIntyre. Since then, he has not made a single appearance on WWE television nor has he been mentioned live on TV. The WWE Universe thought that he might make a surprise return at SummerSlam 2020 but that did not happen and The Beast Incarnate missed The Biggest Party of the Summer for the first time since 2012.
So, it begs the question – what’s next for Brock Lesnar? Although it is speculated that Lesnar does not want to return to WWE anytime soon since there has been no live audience for a WWE event ever since the COVID-19 pandemic hit the world in March, there was a rumor that Lesnar could go to AEW and also it was rumored that he is currently a free agent and not under a contract with the WWE. Former AEW World Heavyweight Champion and former WWE Superstar Chris Jericho also expressed interest in bringing the eight-time world champion to AEW and said that he would love to wrestle him inside an AEW ring even though he felt that WWE Chairman Vince McMahon won’t let that happen as Lesnar is a valuable asset to his company.
Lesnar, who is a former UFC Champion has also been linked to a return at UFC where he could fight Jon Jones. The last outing that Lesnar had with the company was at UFC 200 where he fought Mark Hunt. However, that match left a sour taste in his mouth, as it was declared a no-contest after he failed a pre-fight drug test. He was fined $250,000 and was suspended indefinitely. Reports from January 2019 suggest that Brock has not yet paid the fine.
Impact Wrestling has also been in the news lately for producing quality content and good matches ever since they acquired former WWE Superstars such as EC3, Eric Young, and Brian Myers after they were released by WWE due to budget cuts in light of the COVID-19 situation. Even though the prospect of seeing Lesnar at the Impact Wrestling zone seems unlikely, the world of professional wrestling has shocked us in the past, and with everything that is going around in 2020, it can become a reality.
With all that said, Lesnar could still return to WWE in the near future and have a rematch with Drew McIntyre irrespective of the fact if The Scottish Psychopath remains WWE Champion till then. Lesnar can also do a complete role-reversal and turn into a babyface to challenge WWE Universal Champion Roman Reigns for the title, considering that the latter has turned heel after he made a shocking return at SummerSlam 2020
