Brock Lesnar advertised as a SmackDown superstar when WWE moves to FOX Sports in late 2019

Brock Lesnar

Brock Lesnar returns to Monday Night Raw tonight for the first time in seven weeks as the time ticks down until his big WrestleMania match.

Lesnar will defend the Universal Championship against Seth Rollins and was last seen on our screens giving him SIX F5's the night after the Royal Rumble.

Lesnar's future is always widely speculated about and is always seemingly signing new short-term contracts with the company.

His most recently publicised deal was around November-time in 2018, where he was supposedly going to finish up with his WWE obligations in preparation for a return to UFC.

However Roman Reigns was forced out of action and this led to Vince McMahon offering Lesnar 'huge money' to stick around according to Dave Meltzer, putting the Universal Championship on him again in the process.

No-one really knows who is going to walk out of the Metlife Stadium on April 7 as Universal Champion, but some interesting advertisements over the weekend may determine where Lesnar spends the rest of the calendar year.

Brock Lesnar could be switching brands if recent advertising is anything to go by

Before Nascar's Auto Club 400 race yesterday, FOX Sports were apparently advertising Lesnar to be appearing on SmackDown from October 2019, the channel where the blue brand will be shown in the States after WWE inked a five-year, multi-million dollar deal with the company.

There has been speculation in recent weeks that FOX want to branch out from the current PG culture of WWE and provide 'edgier content' on their platform, with a more sports-oriented feel to the show, and the likes of Lesnar and Ronda Rousey would fit the mould.

Of course there's a chance that it could be misleading advertising, as unless Lesnar's signed a brand-new contract he could effectively go and ply his trade in the UFC once again, where a super-fight against Heavyweight champion Daniel Cormier has been planned for some time.

But with the money FOX are paying to have SmackDown on their platform it could usurp Raw as the 'A show' in WWE and getting Lesnar as part of the deal can only be a good thing for the blue brand if that is to be the case.
