Brock Lesnar is on his way to becoming Mr. WrestleMania. The former UFC Heavyweight Champion has become a consistent big name for WWE’s biggest events, as illustrated by this summer’s return of The Beast Incarnate, who confronted Undisputed WWE Universal Champion Roman Reigns in an exhausting last man standing fight at this year’s SummerSlam.
Lesnar was defeated in the SummerSlam big show, and rumours circulated that he was irritated by Vince McMahon’s abrupt departure from the company, reportedly walking out on the last episode of WWE SmackDown before the big event, overheard telling, If Vince is gone, I’m gone. After reaching a deal
with present WWE management, Lesnar decided to return for that evening’s show. Lesnar’s dissatisfaction with corporate drama, as well as his loss in what was supposed to be the final match between Lesnar and his longtime rival Reigns, has many wondering what the future holds for the former WWE Champion.
As per a recent tweet from the official WWE WrestleMania profile, Lesnar would be in the Los Angeles area for WrestleMania 39 on April 1 and 2 at SoFi Stadium. Lesnar, Becky Lynch, Bobby Lashley, Bianca Belair, Ronda Rousey, and Roman Reigns are all prominently featured on the promotional poster.
While the old adage card subject to change holds true, the use of Lesnar to advertise the WrestleMania ticket presale suggests the company is fairly confident Lesnar will be participating in some capacity, especially alongside current titleholders such as United States Champion Lashley, Raw Women’s Champion Belair, & Undisputed Champion Reigns.
Since losing to Reigns at SummerSlam, Lesnar has been absent from WWE programming. There are presently no firm proposals for WrestleMania 39, with rumour rampant that WWE will attempt to have The Rock face his cousin Roman Reigns. Nevertheless, some have suggested that The Rock’s current obligations may jeopardise that.
Lesnar is recognised to work WWE’s big stadium live performances, so that he could be introduced to the card for the event at Cardiff’s Principality Stadium. WWE also has a series coming up in Saudi Arabia, Crown Jewel, on November 5, so if history is any guide, Lesnar will be there.
Crown Jewel would be WWE’s 8th event in Saudi Arabia as aspect of a 10-year agreement with the country. Lesnar has appeared at all seven previous WWE in Saudi Arabia events, though he did not wrestle at Super ShowDown 2019 and only hinted at paying in his Mony in the Bank agreement against it then Champion Seth Rollins.
