• WWE Possibly Saving Brock Lesnar’s Return For A Major Match
According to the Wrestling Observer, Bobby Lashley vs. Brock Lesnar for the WWE Championship wasn’t on the SummerSlam 2021 match-card as of last week.
It was also noted that people backstage in WWE might be saving Lesnar’s return for a feud with Universal Champion Roman Reigns (a feud that has a lot of history and fans want to see again as well, because of Paul Heyman now being on Roman’s side).
“As of a week ago, Lesnar and Lashley was not on [the SummerSlam 2021 match-card].
Now, it can always change. They can always call him. They can always offer him money, he will do it. Again, it’s up to Vince but they had not made the call a week ago.
And I know there’s forces there that don’t want Lesnar there until it’s a feud with Reigns.”
Lesnar hasn’t appeared in WWE in over 14 months, since his loss at WrestleMania 36.
