The anticipation for WrestleMania 40 is already building, with one major question on every WWE fan's mind: Who will Brock Lesnar face in what promises to be a blockbuster showdown? While Lesnar's return to the event has been confirmed, the identity of his opponent remains shrouded in mystery, and it seems we might have to wait until 2024 to find out.
Lesnar's last WWE appearance was a series of epic battles with Cody Rhodes, culminating in a dramatic clash at SummerSlam 2023, where The American Nightmare finally managed to best The Beast, breaking their tie. Since then, Lesnar has been conspicuously absent from WWE television screens, leaving fans eagerly awaiting his return.
Brock Lesnar Opponent
As the excitement for WrestleMania 40 continues to mount, WWE enthusiasts have taken to social media to voice their opinions on who Lesnar's opponent should be. Topping the list of fan favorites is Gunther, who has already faced Lesnar in a memorable encounter at Royal Rumble 2023.
Both are known for their brutal in-ring styles and a rematch on The Grandest Stage of Them All would undoubtedly be a treat for fans. Following closely behind Gunther in fan speculation is Bron Breakker, with many believing that Lesnar would be the ideal megastar to put over Breakker if he's called up to the main roster before WrestleMania 40.
Intriguingly, some fans have even suggested unlikely opponents for Lesnar, including Logan Paul, Dominik Mysterio, CM Punk, and Bobby Lashley. While these suggestions may raise eyebrows, it's clear that WWE fans have diverse opinions on who should step into the ring with The Beast.
However, there's one match that fans seem united in not wanting to see again: Brock Lesnar vs. Roman Reigns. The two have squared off multiple times in high-profile clashes, and it appears fans are eager for a fresh matchup.
Meanwhile, a notable development is that Brock Lesnar will not be part of WWE Crown Jewel 2023, marking the first time he's missed the premium event in Saudi Arabia. In the previous Crown Jewel, Lesnar secured victory against Bobby Lashley, but his absence from the event this year leaves WWE fans speculating about the reasons behind it.
As the road to WrestleMania 40 unfolds, the excitement and speculation surrounding Brock Lesnar's opponent continue to grow. Only time will tell which name will be etched in the annals of WWE history as the one who faces The Beast Incarnate at the grandest spectacle in sports entertainment.
