At WrestleMania 36, Brock Lesnar lost the WWE Championship to Drew McIntyre and put the Scottish Superstar over in a huge way. The Beast hasn’t appeared on WWE TV since then and there’s a legitimate reason as to why he’s been sitting at home all this while.
During a recent interview with Sportskeeda, Road Warrior Animal revealed that travel restrictions imposed due to COVID-19 have prevented Lesnar from flying into Orlando for WWE programming.
The Conqueror resides in Canada and although he has dual citizenship, he simply can’t fly down to the Amway Center (or Performance Center) at the moment.
“Brock doesn’t want to go back there because of the COVID thing… coming down from Canada, he can’t. He lives in Canada, so there’s no travelling allowed.”
“I know people see that and they go ‘Brock Lesnar should be here’. No, he’s living in Canada. He has dual citizenship. You can’t cross the border right now. So that’s why he’s not on TV.”
It remains to be seen when exactly the 3-time Universal Champion can make it back to television, but WWE’s axing of Paul Heyman as the Executive Director of RAW could be a major factor behind Lesnar’s return to programming.
