In a significant development for WWE enthusiasts, sources reveal that Brock Lesnar, famously known as "The Beast," is poised for a highly anticipated return to WWE television. Lesnar, a dominant figure in the wrestling world, has been conspicuously absent from WWE TV since his last appearance in August 2023.
However, the wrestling community is abuzz with speculation about his return, especially with WrestleMania 40 on the horizon in April. Renowned wrestling journalist Dave Meltzer, in a Wrestling Observer Daily Update, first broke the news of Lesnar's impending comeback.
Meltzer, with his deep insights into the wrestling world, suggested that Lesnar's return could happen imminently. Further elaborating on Wrestling Observer Radio, Meltzer indicated that Lesnar's appearance could be a surprise, occurring at any moment.
Lesnar's Royal Rumble Return
The speculation is rife that Lesnar might make a grand entrance at the upcoming Royal Rumble match. Meltzer, weighing in on this possibility, stated, "At any time, yes. Maybe next week." He also mentioned the strategic timing of Lesnar's return, considering the competing events like a football game and the Emmy Awards that could impact viewership ratings.
"So, if he's going to return for the Rumble, next week would be the week," Meltzer opined. The anticipation around Lesnar's participation in the Royal Rumble is not just about his return but also about the potential storylines and rivalries that could emerge.
Meltzer expressed, "I would presume he's in the Rumble, and I would presume that whatever angle he's going to do will be shot in the Rumble itself." Lesnar's last WWE match was a memorable showdown at SummerSlam on August 5, 2023, where he faced off against Cody Rhodes in a highly competitive singles match.
His return is not just a boost for the WWE universe but also sets the stage for thrilling narratives leading up to WrestleMania. The Royal Rumble 2024, set to be held on January 27, will emanate from the Tropicana Field in Florida.
This event is one of the most eagerly awaited on the WWE calendar, and with the potential addition of Brock Lesnar to the mix, the excitement and stakes are higher than ever.
