In recent days, All Elite Wrestling (AEW), has been in the news for the latest rumors that have approached two former WWE stars such as CM Punk and even Daniel Bryan to the company of Tony Khan. In the last few hours the rumors have increased and have also seen a rumor that would be incredible: the second most important wrestling company in the world is said to be thinking of The Beast Incarnate, one of the most important stars of WWE of the last twenty years, none other than Brock Lesnar.
Some rumors even say that the wrestler has already signed a contract. It all started when someone sent a message to colleagues from Wrestling Observer Newsletter stating that a historical and very important source in wrestling has informed them that Brock Lesnar had signed a deal with a company outside WWE.
Rumors have increased and it has been argued that this company was indeed AEW.
Backstage news on Brock Lesnar
During the last episode of the Mat Men podcast, colleague Andrew Zarian took stock of the actual situation of The Beast.
Here are his words: "I can tell you with absolute certainty that Brock Lesnar did not sign with AEW. They may have spoken occasionally, but never anything serious. That's all I know and I can tell you what they told me.
I also spoke with Dave Meltzer and he also confirmed that it is not true, Brock Lesnar has not signed with All Elite Wrestling." Brock Lesnar has been absent from WWE rings and wrestling in general since last year when he was defeated at Wrestlemania 36.
Latest rumors say that Vince McMahon's company is very interested in the wrestler's return and Zarian continued: "Brock hasn't signed with WWE yet. I know WWE wants him and honestly, if I'm WWE I think 'How do you let go one like him.'
I think he would be stupid and in fact the fact that WWE doesn't sink the blow for his return has made some wrestling fans think that WWE wants to sell. Usually, when someone wants to sell he has to save money as possible but I think you must also sell with the maximum of your earnings."
According to Dave Meltzer of F4WOnline.com, Brock Lesnar isn't contracted to any company at this time. WWE has been holding off negotiations with the former Universal Champion because of the idea it’s not smart timing to bring him back at this time.
“He [Brock Lesnar] also has not been in negotiations with WWE because of the idea it’s not smart timing for what is likely a Mania in 2022 through 2024 to make a deal now when the competition is likely to only raise his value and the money he could get when they want him and when he wants to come back for maximum interest, said Meltzer”.
