WWE Issues Statement On Brock Lesnar’s Potential Doping Violation; Is He Still Wrestling At SummerSlam?

Brock Lesnar

After UFC issued a statement Friday saying Brock Lesnar was notified by the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency (USADA) of a potential Anti-Doping Policy violation stemming from an out-of-competition sample collected on June 28, his status with WWE immediately came in to question. As such, the organization issued the following brief statement on the company website and to various members of the media.

Brock Lesnar has not performed for WWE since WrestleMania and is not scheduled to return until Sunday, Aug. 21.

While it remains unclear whether WWE will discipline Lesnar, their statement indicates that he is still scheduled to face Randy Orton at SummerSlam on August 21 in Brooklyn, New York.

Lesnar made a successful return to MMA on July 9 at UFC 200, defeating Mark Hunt by unanimous decision. The results of the sampling were received by the USADA on Thursday.
