Brock Lesnar dropped the WWE Title to Drew McIntyre at WrestleMania 36. It was a big moment for McIntyre and the building would have been full of cheers if fans were allowed.
The Beast lost in empathetic fashion against Drew McIntyre on Night Two of WrestleMania 36, after eating plenty of Claymore Kicks from the Scottish Psychopath. Lesnar, who held the title since October, was finally conquered in a rather major moment for McIntyre.
Lesnar hasn’t appeared on WWE programming ever since he suffered his first pinfall loss since Summerslam, and his future in the company remains unclear. Lesnar had a packed schedule in 2020 after he appeared on almost every episode of the red brand this year, and even had one of the greatest Royal Rumble performances when he emptied almost half of the card.
Vince McMahon had the investors call for the first quarter of 2020, and mentioned that they no longer have Brock Lesnar, which could signify a departure for the Beast. McMahon was rather straightforward in his announcement which came as a shocker.
Dave Meltzer noted on Wrestling Observer Radio that this could be a sign of Lesnar not returning to WWE, while his partner Bryan Alvarez felt that it could be a temprorary time-off for the Beast until the arenas are packed once again.
Another major problem is Lesnar’s residence, as he resides in Canada, and with the shutdown of the borders, it’s hard to envision him making it to Florida for the next set of tapings. WWE resumed live tapings for their shows last week and will follow the schedule until July at the very least.
With the USA recording deadliest numbers in the COVID-19 pandemic, normalcy might not return anytime soon, which means it will be a great deal of time before we see Paul Heyman and his associate back on WWE programming.
