• Brock Lesnar’s Return Date Revealed, Also Set To Appear On A Show After SummerSlam 2018

WWE Universal Champion Brock Lesnar was last seen on WWE programming at the Greatest Royal Rumble in Saudi Arabia. His return date has been revealed. Lesnar will make his return to WWE TV on the July 30th RAW from the American Airlines Arena in Miami, Florida.

The arena is advertising the Universal Champion which means he will make an appearance at the final RAW of the month. Roman Reigns and Bobby Lashley will be fighting for the right to face Lesnar at SummerSlam 2018 this coming Monday on RAW. WWE will be heading to the American Airlines Arena for RAW a week after the #1 contender for the title is determined. It looks like Lesnar will be appearing for a face off against the challenger for his title.

Lesnar has also been booked for another RAW. He is set to make an appearance at the post SummerSlam 2018 RAW from the Barclays Center in Brooklyn. It might be his last appearance for WWE for the time being as he’ll most probably start preparing for his UFC Heavyweight Title bout against Daniel Cormier after that.

• Former WWE Star Says WWE Offered Him A Lot Of Money To Close His Wrestling Promotion

During a recent media call, former WWE star and ECW Legend Tommy Dreamer revealed that WWE offered him a lot of money to close his House Of Hardcore promotion and also discussed if ECW would be successful if existed today.

Below are the highlights:

On WWE offering him a lot of money to close House Of Hardcore:

“I learned a lot of lessons in my life. Everyone talks about ECW and the greatness that was ECW and it was. But none of us ever knew that Paul Heyman was in bed with WWE the entire time. I had to live with those effects for a long, long time. I would not sign a contract with anyone. WWE asked me to sign a contract when I went back with The Wyatts and they offered me a lot of money to close House Of Hardcore and I refused.”

On if ECW would be successful if existed today:

“Honestly, I think we’d be out of business and here’s why. Everything we did in ECW, most of it was illegal. Music, which was such a huge part of ECW we wouldn’t be able to use. If you want to talk about conflicts and drama — I mean we would have riots all the time.

Now think of the era of the cell phone camera. Now think of we would after shows party with fans. Or have fights in bars. Or think about if stuff went down with the owner not paying people or even writing bad checks – that’s illegal. I said it on the WWE Network, most people want to b**** about Paul Heyman but most of them chose to stay.”
