The WWE Universe might need to enjoy Brock Lesnar as a WWE Superstar while they still can.
As previously reported, there have been rumors going around that Brock Lesnar could be transitioning back into an MMA career. The reigning WWE Universal Champion is rumored to make his UFC return at the company’s upcoming PPV at the world’s most famous arena Madison Square Garden in New York City this coming September.
Additionally, there have been talks that Lesnar will be leaving the WWE once his existing contract with the company expires after next year’s WrestleMania.
On the latest edition of Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer and Bryan Alvarez addressed this issue. Below is what they said regarding Lesnar’s potential upcoming WWE departure:
Dave Meltzer: “The stories that Brock is gonna be done after WrestleMania and he’s leaving to go back to UFC, I wouldn’t take that seriously at all. I mean it could happen, but as best I can tell, he has not made that decision at all, and he’s probably not gonna make that decision for a long time.”
Bryan Alvarez: “I heard people talking about Brock being done at Mania, but I didn’t hear two and two put together where he’s leaving WWE because he’s going back to UFC. The impression I got from hearing that was, he wants to do a huge money UFC fight, probably at the end of this year, make a ton of money, and finish up this contract with WWE and then he’d just be done. Like, not going back to UFC, but just, he made his money, he’s 40 years old, and he’s done.”
Dave Meltzer: “Yeah, I don’t have that impression at all. My impression is that he’s gonna do what he does, which is gonna be that he’ll hear both sides, he’s gonna get the numbers up, and then he’s gonna do what he’s gonna do.”
