Major Change In Brock Lesnar’s WWE Return

Brock Lesnar Vs Cody Rhodes 3 SummerSlam 2023 WWE PPV WrestleFeed App

In one of the co-main events of WWE SummerSlam 2023, Cody Rhodes defeated Brock Lesnar to end their feud.

After the match, Lesnar showed respect to Rhodes. The Beast shook The American Nightmare’s hand, hugged him and raised his arm.

During the post-show press conference, Cody said he’s incredibly grateful for what Brock did for him. Cody said he looks up to Lesnar the same way his father Dusty Rhodes used to look up to Harley Race.

He said he has finally found his character, and who he truly is.

What Lesnar did for him, you have to earn it, and Cody said he thinks he has earned it.

Triple H said Brock doesn’t get enough credit for being one of the greatest of all time. He implied that Lesnar hugging Rhodes and showing him respect wasn’t scripted, and it was a “holy sh*t” moment for himself, as well as the fans.

Before showing respect to Cody, Brock removed his gloves and many fans thought Brock was retiring or at least going on a long hiatus, especially since he showed respect to his opponent, which he has not done much.

However, that’s not the case, as Lesnar was advertised for the Fastlane premium live event on October 7th.

In an update on this situation, the Wrestling Observer is reporting that Lesnar is no longer scheduled to work Fastlane and is done for 2023:

“Brock was originally advertised for one of the pay-per-views later this year, but he’s not gonna be on it.

He’s gonna be gone for a while. No time soon as far as next four months or something like that, he’s not gonna be on anything at that point.

He’ll be back for Mania season, he is coming back, so that’s the situation with him.”

It’s hard to imagine that Lesnar is going to miss his massive Saudi Arabia payday for Crown Jewel later this year. Lesnar gets paid around $1-1.5 million per match at the Saudi Arabia premium live events.
