As simple as that may seem of a question be, yet still nobody has been able to answer it. Where is Brock Lesnar? The popular WWE personality Brock Lesnar has remained out of the limelight since the last time he showed up at the SummerSlam Premium Live Event opposite Cody Rhodes.

People are now full of rumors as to his status of returning to the ring especially amidst the cloud of controversy that surrounds Vince McMahon and his current legal issues. Indeed, another crucial dimension to this is the fact that the return of Lesnar would come on the footages of McMahon's going-on pimping trial which had the potential of casting some massage shadow as far as the overall image of the WWE was concerned.

According to early plans: Lesnar makes a dramatic re-entry. That never quite happened, and now his comeback is all twisted amid complicated leapfrog. In the process of doing so, it not only sidelines Lesnar from the WWE but saw his name being omitted from the WWE 2K24 figure and a hole in his tenure in WWE Creative’s future.

Mantell's Lesnar Caution

This point was reflected again in "Story Time With Dutch Mantell" segment, when he discussed the present WWE condition with Lesnar. Deeply emphasizing at such controversial situations, Mantell felt that during such times, WWE would do good to keep away from Lesnar.

Re-introducing Lesnar in WWE story line now amidst the lawsuit period as he highlighted would mean PR suicide for WWE. "Keeping away these charges before thinking about being back is inevitable," advised Mantell, who made further analysis on the possible repercussions that with Lesnar’s name being too knitted in the current legal-PR complications, a serene comeback is highly unlikely.

He suggested therefore WWE to have patience and hence let the situation simmer down, the legal process to wind up, before any such decision over Lesnar’s fate in WWE. While Ross chimed in with some comments of his own, saying how the WWE should set the tone and should indeed "take the high road" when it came to "moving on," Mantell said that what was needed the most for this case and controversy was resolution in the courts.

So it is, to the most beautiful crossroads, that WWE has arrived, now walking the razor's edge between its programming and an increasingly saw incidence. From the list of speculation and debate that could only be off of a potential return of Brock Lesnar to just what the organization is up against in the legal challenges to Vince McMahon.
