It’s fair to say that the deal between the WWE and Brock Lesnar has divided fans, but there is no denying the box office draws that comes with the Beast Incarnate. Lesnar has been a huge part of many of the big rivalries that have been played out on WWE television over the past couple of years, but there have been many reports doing the rounds that have indicated that fans may have seen the last of Lesnar in WWE.
Paul Heyman recently revealed that Lesnar is a ‘free agent’ and that he hasn’t got a deal in place with any other company. But, Heyman refused to close the door completely on Lesnar returning to the WWE at some point in the future.
WWE News: Door Remains Open
Speaking to Ariel Helwani’s MMA Show, Heyman revealed that he doesn’t believe that Lesnar has ended his association with the WWE altogether, and that fans could see him back at some point. However, his return will depend on a number of factors. The first of which being an interesting programme that would interest Lesnar, and the second being whether the money would be right for him to return.
Vince McMahon will certainly not have given up hope of having Lesnar back in the WWE again in the future, and it’s fair to say that there are a couple of superstars that would benefit hugely from sharing the ring with Lesnar. But, whether those rivalries will interest Lesnar remains to be seen.
WWE News: Which Superstars Could Interest Lesnar?
There is no shortage of rivalries that Lesnar could be involved that would get an immediate interest from fans. A re-match with Drew McIntyre shouldn’t be something that is ruled out, as the two could continue their story from WrestleMania, where McIntyre defeated Lesnar for the WWE Championship. Meanwhile, Keith Lee could be another star that could be developed with the help of a return for Lesnar.
Heyman is currently aligned with Roman Reigns, which could be an immediate storyline that Lesnar could become invested with. Reigns is doing the best work of his career, and once he has beaten all other challengers a shock return by Lesnar could leave Reigns’ dominance in question. One place where Lesnar will not be going according to Heyman is back to the UFC. He revealed that Lesnar will be sticking by his decision to retire from the sport.
