Brock Lesnar’s future in WWE is not in doubt according to the wrestling entertainment company. Rumors have raised their head this week after the WWE Heavyweight Champion failed to appear on Monday Night Raw just one day after regaining his title at Night of Champions, but it is understood that the powerful wrestler is not injured.
WWE fans were left bemused and confused when they watched Raw and didn’t see Lesnar take the ring. It is well known that the night after a pay-per-view is a great chance for WWE to revel in the buzz from the night before, so having a champion miss Raw the night after is almost unheard of.
Denying the rumors
One of the particularly worrying things from fans’ perspectives was the fact that WWE failed to delve into Lesnar’s victory over John Cena at Night of Champions, and Lesnar’s advocate Paul Heyman was not present on Raw spewing out his own unique brand of chatter.
Internet rumors spread earlier this week that Lesnar’s poor health may have had something to do with his absence from Raw, but WWE denied that in a statement on Thursday.
“No truth to the rumors about issues with Brock Lesnar's health,” WWE stated in an email response statement to the Washington Post.
Still hiding something?
But the reason why the statement is confusing is because they still didn’t reveal why the superstar wrestler was missing from Raw.
If there is no injury, why was he missing? Only recently, we heard rumors that Lesnar had signed a new contract that gives WWE the ability to book him when they want, but now it is understood that Lesnar is not likely to sign that contract.
It is likely that the reason he didn’t appear on Raw this week is because he is still under his old contract that has a more restrictive booking clause, and it has been reported that the latest Raw was a show that Lesnar had never been booked for.
The only other remaining issue is the fact that WWE failed to acknowledge Lesnar the night after he regained the WWE Heavyweight Championship the night before. It’s still a bizarre one, and the sooner that we get to the bottom of it the better wrestling fans will feel.
