Brock Lesnar's last appearance in WWE was in SummerSlam 2022. The Beast was defeated by Roman Reigns at the end of a no holds barred battle, made even more thrilling by the entry of Lesnar 'aboard' a tractor. Brock and the 'Tribal Chief' have clashed a myriad of times from WrestleMania 31 to date.
After nearly a decade of rivalry, the two superstars gave us a couple of memorable encounters at WrestleMania 38 and SummerSlam. Although he has often been criticized for his poor attachment to wrestling, there's no denying that Lesnar made WWE history.
Don't forget that Webster's 45-year-old is the only athlete in history to have won a world title in mixed martial arts, professional wrestling and collegiate wrestling. At this point, many are wondering when 'The Beast Incarnate' will return to the ring.
New details on Brock Lesnar
The former Universal Champion has a contract with WWE until mid-2023. It has already been advertised for Day 1, the PPV to be held on January 1, 2023, and for the Royal Rumble 2023. According to the latest rumors, Brock Lesnar could return shortly before Crown Jewel, the event that will take place in Saudi Arabia.
In the past, there were also rumors of a possible arrival of Brock in All Elite Wrestling. According to Dave Meltzer, a well-known correspondent for the 'Wrestling Observer', these were unfounded rumors. "There was talk of a possible arrival of Lesnar in AEW, but there was nothing true as far as I'm concerned.
The Beast was not and will never be the right profile for Tony Khan's company. His appearances are too sporadic to justify such an investment. AEW cannot afford to bet everything on him." Barring sensational twists, Lesnar will also take part in WrestleMania 39, scheduled for Saturday 1 and Sunday 2 April 2023 at SoFi Stadium in Los Angeles.
Brian James, also known as Road Dogg, has given his take on why Brock Lesnar ended Kofi Kingston’s WWE Championship reign so abruptly. “I think it probably was FOX, Brock Lesnar, cross appeal,” James said.
“He’s a [big] name and Vince loves him, and Vince is drawing with him, and so tried and true, ‘Hey, let’s shock the world, send him out there, and kill him in a minute. Blah, blah, blah.’ I can hear him saying it now.
It is what it is. Maybe Big E would have given a better battle”. Lesnar, meanwhile, defended his title against Cain Velasquez.
