The REAL Reason Brock Lesnar Wasn't Mentioned On WWE Raw This Week

  • Brock Lesnar may return at SummerSlam

Well, the UFC, WWE or someone has to figure out what's going on in Lesnar's mouth before any talks of a title fight move forward.

Oh no. Take a closer look at his WWE matches the same shortcoming can be seen! That was the last time Brock Lesnar competed in the WWE ring and it was in April.

On Thursday, Wrestling Observer reported that Lesnar will be wrestling at SummerSlam which was a concern of some fans. Meltzer didn't discuss a possible opponent for Lesnar but said that with Lesnar re-entering the USADA testing pool ahead of his fight with Daniel Cormier, this would be the last WWE match of Lesnar's current contract. From there, he would head back to UFC and become a fighter in the Octagon once again, but WWE has dragged their heels on confirming his return.

Rousey is now preparing for Extreme Rules where she will be part of the RAW Women's Championship Match between title-holder Alexa Bliss and Nia Jax.


Now, the idea is that the victor of the Roman Reigns vs. Bobby Lashley match will take on Lesnar at SummerSlam, and that is expected to be the former. The next Monday, Lesnar nor UFC 226 were mentioned on Raw. It is now believed that was done on objective and to keep the focus on Extreme Rules and its build-up. McMahon wants the perception to be that Brock has turned his back on the WWE to join UFC, and he won't be coming back to defend his Universal Title. After all, should Lesnar defeat Cormier, there would be a goldmine in being able to promote Lesnar as both the WWE Universal Champion and UFC Heavyweight Champion, simultaneously.

It has been years, but WWE is insistent on making Roman Reigns a super babyface and the face of the company, but it just hasn't worked at all.

Either way, it would seem we're in for a new Universal champion at SummerSlam, though Lesnar has shocked us before when we thought he would lose.
