• Update On Brock Lesnar’s Status & Return Date
Former Universal Champion Brock Lesnar was originally advertised to appear on this week’s post-SummerSlam 2018 edition of RAW, but he didn’t.
— Barclays Center (@barclayscenter) July 16, 2018
Lesnar wasn’t backstage at RAW either as he flew back home on Monday morning.
Regarding fans being upset due to false advertisements for Lesnar’s appearance, Vince McMahon thinks they got a suitable replacement with a surprise Shield reunion.
As seen on this week’s RAW, RAW General Manager Kurt Angle refused to grant Lesnar a rematch for the Universal Championship at Hell In A Cell 2018 PPV.
Lesnar isn’t expected to return to WWE programming for the rest of 2018.
Lesnar’s next WWE appearance will be sometime after his UFC Heavyweight Title fight against Daniel Cormier in 2019.
