As the anticipation builds for WrestleMania 39, former WWE Champion Brock Lesnar is preparing to face the "Nigerian Giant" Omos in what is expected to be a thrilling matchup in Los Angeles. Amidst the excitement, Lesnar has hinted in a recent interview with ESPN's Daniel Cormier that his legendary wrestling career may be approaching its conclusion.
Addressing the rumors about his potential retirement, Lesnar admitted feeling conflicted about his future in WWE. He explained that while the thrill of being in the ring continues to excite him, the constant traveling and time away from home have taken a toll on his personal life.
"Every time that I think that I want to be done... I get in the ring, I get to the building, and that's part of the business that I love," Lesnar said. "I left the business early because I didn't like the travel... I'm just a simple man, and it was too much for me then...
I don't know how long I'm going to be around. I don't know that."
Lesnar's Considered Retirement in 2020
Looking back on his career, Lesnar revealed that in 2020, he had seriously considered retiring from wrestling. However, a lucrative offer and the opportunity to reinvent his character for a SummerSlam match against Roman Reigns in 2021 convinced him to stay.
The 10-time WWE Champion maintains that although winning titles still matters to him, he can only sometimes need them to validate his career. Despite his uncertain future, Lesnar has expressed interest in pursuing the WWE Championship once more.
This leaves the door open for potential matches, and one wrestler eager to face Lesnar is current Intercontinental Champion GUNTHER. The rising star firmly believes that he and Lesnar will someday battle it out in the ring.
As WrestleMania 39 draws closer, fans can't help but wonder if Lesnar's match with Omos will be one of his last. While the former WWE Champion's future remains uncertain, one thing is for sure: his impact on professional wrestling will never be forgotten.
With a potential matchup against GUNTHER and a shot at the WWE Championship in the future, Lesnar's legendary career may have more surprises for fans.
