– Brock Lesnar’s widely expected Universal Championship loss to Roman Reigns finally played out at on August 19 at SummerSlam and “The Beast Incarnate” is now transitioning back to training for a return to the UFC’s Octagon. Most expect his MMA return to happen in early 2019 against UFC Heavyweight Champion Daniel Cormier.
Lesnar is no longer under contract to WWE, according to Dave Meltzer in the Wrestling Observer Newsletter. His contract expired a few days after wrestling at SummerSlam.
It’s quite possible that Lesnar returns to WWE in time for WrestleMania 35 next April, though this will obviously be contingent on how his UFC return goes. Lesnar remains undoubtedly one of the biggest stars in wrestling and WWE will always see him as an asset to their roster.
