To this day, a lot of people are eager to see Brock Lesnar return to the cage. He has been repeatedly tied up to fight rumors involving Daniel Cormier, something that has been hyped up for several months in the past. Unfortunately, it looks like all hopes of seeing that clash has come to a close with the Beast Incarnate opting to focus on his WWE career.
Lesnar, the 2019 Money in the Bank winner, is expected to be seen more on shows although it seems obvious which title he is aiming for. He is lurking and has set his eyes on WWE Universal Champion Seth Rollins and seeing the title change hands at some point could happen. That almost happened recently at WWE Super Showdown held in Saudi Arabia until Lesnar’s handler, Paul Heyman, stole the show when he accidentally dropped the MOTB briefcase. Much of this and possible repercussions were discussed in a previous post.
If one looks at the history of WWE Money in the Bank winners, most usually cash in during the grand stages. Wrestlemania is normally the favorite time where MOTB winners make a withdrawal and normally end up successful. With Lesnar, the script is different since he is one of the high-profile WWE stars. Also, one cannot help but think of the possibility of seeing Lesnar put to waste that golden opportunity with Heyman possible playing a curious role.
As far as the UFC is concerned, it has always been Lesnar’s alternative home for several years now. But looking ahead, it looks like president Dana White has officially closed the book on seeing the former UFC champ back in the Octagon, TMZ Sports reported.
“You have to be ALL IN on fighting and if you’re not all in, then you shouldn’t fight,” said White. “He made the decision and it’s the right decision.”
That statement dropped by Lesnar could be taken in different ways. One is that seeing Lesnar back in the UFC may not necessarily be ideal for mixed martial arts fans. Also, the Beast Incarnate is already 41, hinting that potential injuries he may get from re-entering the cage could be crucial to his MMA or wrestling career. However, seeing him return at some point could still happen seeing how other UFC legends tried to revive their careers. Lesnar remains a household name. For now, however, he will have to do that under the WWE banner.
