Despite now being the longest-reigning champion of the modern era after passing CM Punk's reign of 434 days as WWE Champion earlier this month, many questions about Brock Lesnar's future with the WWE still remain unanswered.
It was largely considered that Lesnar would drop the Universal Championship to Roman Reigns earlier this year at WrestleMania 34 so that he could return to the UFC. Yet, when that didn't happen, many thought he would then drop the title to Reigns at the Greatest Royal Rumble.
However, when that didn't happen either, many WWE fans have now come to the conclusion that The Beast will stay as Universal Champion until SummerSlam later this year before dropping it to whoever he faces at the show and moving on to UFC.
As of writing, WWE is yet to confirm anything about Lesnar's future in terms of Universal Championship matches, as well as his status in the WWE itself. Even Triple H wouldn't reveal anything during recent talks with the media.
During a media scrum for the WWE UK Championship tournament, Triple H was asked about Lesnar's contract and if he would be allowed to go to UFC for a potential fight while still working for the WWE. The Game, however, sidestepped the question completely.
He said, according to Wrestling Inc: "So, I think this was about the UK tournament...[points at person asking the question and chuckles]. But to be honest, I don't have a comment on Brock [Lesnar], the UFC, or any of that. We're here for the UK."
This isn't the first time Triple H has been asked about The Beast and declined to say much about the situation. Back in March while in India, The Game had an interview with News18 and was asked then about Lesnar's contract.
He said back then: "To be honest I really don't have anything to share in this conversation and we'll see where it goes. Brock is Brock, he's an interesting guy to be with, makes it challenging which is always wonderful and we're working on it. We'll see where that goes as time goes on."
It is widely expected that Lesnar will drop the title to Reigns or someone else at SummerSlam, but even that's not a done deal since The Beast is not currently confirmed for WWE's biggest show of the summer or any other dates.
UFC President Dana White confirmed at Saturday's UFC 225 event that Lesnar is still interested in returning to UFC in the near future, so one would think at some point soon, Brock will take a leave of absence or depart from the company altogether in order to train for a UFC fight.
