Brock Lesnar could face an old rival at WrestleMania after WWE return

It's now time for WWE superstar Brock Lesnar to be away from wrestling rings and Vince McMahon federation in general. The Beast Incarnate's contract has long since expired, the wrestler is a Free Agent and the last time he walked the rings of the company dates back to WrestleMania 36 when he was defeated by Drew McIntyre.

With the public returning for Wrestlemania 37 there have been rumors Lesnar's return to the ring, but as recently reported by Dave Meltzer this situation is quite complicated because superstars like The Rock and Lesnar himself would have to face to participate in the event.

a 14-day quarantine, a situation that is anything but simple and which explains how the two could hardly be at the event.

The history between Brock Lesnar and Roman Reigns

During the last episode of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, well-known colleague Dave Meltzer explained that the future goal of WWE is to create a match between Brock Lesnar and his old rival Roman Reigns.

The choice of the Tribal Chief to rely on Mad Genius can trigger an 'explosive' plot. Meltzer has made it clear, however, that this 'match of dreams', long requested by fans of the WWE Universe, will not happen this year but it is a very likely path for a future edition of WrestleMania.

Here are the words about Meltzer: "The Brock Lesnar vs Roman Reigns at Wrestlemania idea is obviously on the writers' table, but it won't be done this year. It's a story that will likely have Paul Heyman involved and there are several ways to tell it."

Despite being Free Agent Brock Lesnar is very attached to the company of Vince McMahon and unless there are sensational scenarios, the athlete will sooner or later sign for the WWE. As for Wrestlemania 37, WWE Universal Champion Roman Reigns should, barring sensational surprises, challenge for the Edge title, winner of the last Royal Rumble.

Roman Reigns first faced Brock Lesnar at WrestleMania 31, which ended with Seth Rollins cashing in the Money in the Bank contract. The reigning Universal Champion has had a few other matches with Brock Lesnar in the past. However, the dynamics are entirely different this time around as Roman Reigns is now a top heel, and Paul Heyman also would have to pick sides when Brock Lesnar does come back.

The ongoing storyline with Roman Reigns could be given a different dimension with Brock Lesnar's return, but WWE reportedly has no plans on booking it this year.
