Brock Lesnar Will Return To WWE

Brock Lesnar will be back.

While there’s an expectation that Vince McMahon and John Laurinaitis will never work for WWE again, the same can’t be said for Brock Lesnar.

Back in January, former WWE employee Janel Grant filed a lawsuit against Vince McMahon, John Laurinaitis, and WWE. The lawsuit contained allegations of sexual assault and sex trafficking, and although he wasn’t named directly, Lesnar was also implicated.

Grant alleged that McMahon had offered her sexual services to an unnamed former UFC Champion and WWE star. It’s been widely reported that the star in question is Lesnar.

During the post-WrestleMania XL night one press conference, Triple H said Lesnar remained with the company.

In a further update in the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, Dave Meltzer reported that Lesnar is expected to return to television, although it might not be for some time.

We’d been told a few weeks ago that it was one of those deals unlike McMahon and John Laurinaitis who are likely never coming back, in that at some point he’d be back. We were also told at that time it wasn’t going to be that soon and it was nothing in the immediate plans.

What Plans Did WWE Have For Brock Lesnar?

Brock Lesnar hasn’t wrestled since being defeated by Cody Rhodes at SummerSlam 2023. However, things were meant to be very different. Back in January, it was reported that Brock Lesnar’s planned appearance at the Royal Rumble was scrapped, with Bron Breakker taking his position in the men’s Rumble match.

His elimination would have started a story with Dominik Mysterio ending in a match at Elimination Chamber before Lesnar faced Gunther at WrestleMania.
