Brock Lesnar’s last pro wrestling match took place at SummerSlam 2023, where he lost against ‘The American Nightmare’ Cody Rhodes by pinfall after 17 minutes and 35 seconds.

Since then, speculation started about when The Beast Incarnate will return to WWE. The prince of Saudi Arabia is well known to demand the biggest possible starpower for the two annual WWE shows in his country, including legends & part-timers, like (in the past) Brock Lesnar, John Cena, Goldberg (until 2022), The Undertaker (until 2020), Kurt Angle (until 2018), Shawn Michaels (2018), … and even retired wrestlers in non-wrestling roles, like Hulk Hogan (until 2019) and Ric Flair (2019).

While John Cena seems to be almost confirmed at this point to wrestle at the upcoming overseas premium live event, most likely even in the main event against Undisputed WWE Universal Champion Roman Reigns for the title, it seems like Brock Lesnar is indeed going to take the rest of the year off and will return at some point in January 2024, in time for the Royal Rumble (and obviously WrestleMania 40).

According to Xero News, Lesnar has a verbal agreement with WWE to stay with the company at least until WrestleMania 41 in 2025:

“Brock Lesnar has a verbal agreement to stay with WWE until WrestleMania 41. No word if he would stay after that.”

Prior to WrestleMania 39, Lesnar told Daniel Cormier during an interview that he originally retired from WWE after WrestleMania 36 in 2020:

“In 2020, I retired and was gonna be just done because I had my 20 years, then COVID hit, my contract was up. I had my very first wrestling match in Hamel, Minnesota, in an empty garage.

There I was 20 years later fighting Drew McIntyre in front of no people for the WWE Championship. I was like, you know what, it came full circle, and I was truly done.”
