The last time we saw Brock Lesnar in WWE, he was lying flat on his back after being pinned by Drew McIntyre at WrestleMania 36.
This of course isn’t unusual for Brock, who often takes several months or even years away from WWE after big losses, as is the nature of his gimmick.
Former advocate Paul Heyman was interviewed by Ariel Helwani recently, and he was asked about Brock’s potential future in both WWE and UFC.
“It depends on if there’s a worthy challenger and enough box office appeal. Right now, he’s very happy being a farmer and a magnificent father to his children. However, if there’s something that WWE can offer that intrigues, motivates, or inspires Lesnar, and if the money is right and the business is solid, I’m sure he would be willing to do it.
“At this moment, it [a comeback] hasn’t happened because it [a worthy offer] isn’t there. Again, the world changes with the snap of a finger. It could be tomorrow when Lesnar says, ‘Oh, that intrigues me.’ Again, its not just a sound byte, but Brock Lesnar does what Brock Lesnar wants to do.”
Vince McMahon famously blamed RAW’s falling ratings earlier this year on the fact that Brock was no longer around, perfectly illustrating the way that Vince sees his company.
In WWE’s current roster, there aren’t all that many people left for Brock to face, and as Paul Heyman mentioned, he’s got a family and another life now, so it could be some time before we see him back in the ring.
