Brock Lesnar left WWE after WrestleMania last year. It took fans a while to realize that his contract was up, but once his merchandise disappeared from the WWE Shop they got the idea.
Bobby Lashley is in line to get a big WWE Title opportunity against The Miz next week on WWE Raw, airing at 8:00 PM Mondays on the USA Network. That match could set the stage for Lesnar’s return.
On this week’s After The Bell, WWE announcers Corey Graves and Vic Joseph were asked if they were behind the idea of Bobby Lashley picking up the WWE Title. Graves is into the idea, but then the question arose about who would face the CEO of the Hurt Business at WrestleMania 37.
Vic Joseph said: “I think there’s an obvious answer that’s out floating there, but I’m not going to give that obvious answer.” This brought Corey Graves to answer: “I am, I am, Brock Lesnar.”
Bobby Lashley has long pulled for a match against Brock Lesnar. WWE has yet to make it happen, but perhaps 2021 will be his year.
Graves also said “Brrrock Lessnar” just as Paul Heyman does, the man who has served as Lesnar’s Advocate for years. We’ll have to see how WWE books WrestleMania. The event will consist of two nights this year, April 10th and 11th, and bringing in Brock Lesnar seems like a great idea to generate buzz.
