• Reason Behind Brock Lesnar Putting Over Drew McIntyre So Strong At WrestleMania 36
Brock Lesnar was last seen on WWE programming at WrestleMania 36 earlier this year, where he lost the WWE Championship to Drew McIntyre in 5 minutes.
WrestleVotes reported earlier this week that WWE is not considering The Beast in their SummerSlam plans this year because of the absence of fans.
In an update to that report, The Wrestling Observer confirmed that Lesnar is not returning for SummerSlam this year.
“Lesnar is not scheduled for this year’s SummerSlam show. One of the reasons he put over McIntyre so strongly was because he was not coming back any time soon. Heyman has not been brought to television since he was let go as head of RAW creative.”
