It’s well known that the reigning, defending, undisputed WWE Universal Champion Brock Lesnar is on his way out of the WWE.
When Lesnar signed with WWE and later made his main roster debut in 2002, he was a young prospect, who was pushed heavily.
He was an amateur wrestler and made the transition into pro wrestling very quickly.
There are only a handful of guys that have made the transition and had major success. Lesnar is one and WWE Hall of Famer Kurt Angle is another.
Although he was pushed to the moon by WWE Chairman Vince McMahon and the WWE creative team, Lesnar was not one who liked to be on the road. In WWE, you are on the road for at least 300 days a year if not more.
That is taxing on someone’s body as well as the mind. Thus, Lesnar saw the exit door and took it following his match with Bill Goldberg at WrestleMania 20 in 2004.
After briefly competing in New Japan Pro Wrestling and having a successful run in the UFC, the current WWE champion decided to return home.
Lesnar returned to WWE on April 2, 2012, on Raw, as a villain, by confronting and delivering an F-5 to John Cena. This move made sense for both sides. WWE needed star power, and Lesnar got paid extremely well for working a limited schedule.
Since he returned to the company, Lesnar has slowly but surely started working more events that include TV, PPV (pay-per-view) and house shows.
Lesnar is slated to make his next Universal Title defense this Sunday at WrestleMania 34 when he steps into the ring against Roman Reigns in the main event.
UFC President Dana White has already confirmed that Lesnar is on his way back to the promotion and will fight under the UFC banner inside the Octagon.
During Thursday’s (April 5, 2018) Evening with Paul Heyman show in New Orleans, The Advocate revealed that his contract expires the same time that Lesnar’s does, which is at 11:59 pm EST on April 8th which is the night of WrestleMania 34. News courtesy of Ringside News.
WrestleMania 34 is set to be held at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans, Louisiana. This event airs on pay-per-view (PPV) and WWE Network.
It’s the most successful and longest-running professional wrestling event in history. Both Raw and SmackDown rosters will be featured.
