Brock Lesnar was last seen in WWE back at WrestleMania when he pitched that his Universal Championship defense against Seth Rollins should become the first match of the night since he was aware that he wouldn’t be the main event.
Lesnar lost the match after delivering a beating to Rollins, but The Architect was able to hit three Curb Stomps to pick up the Universal Championship for the first time in his career. Of course, this means that Lesnar still has a rematch clause for that title, if he is granted it in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia next month.
It is already known that Lesnar will be part of the show, but his match is still yet to be announced, since there are only three matches official for the show so far and they see Goldberg return to take on The Undertaker and Triple H step up to Randy Orton, while the 50-man Royal Rumble format makes its return for the second consecutive year.
Despite being announced for WWE’s return to The Middle East, Lesnar’s future is still somewhat up in the air following the event since there are no clues to where he will show up next, even though it is now expected that he will be part of SummerSlam in August.
Brad Shepard recently Tweeted to point out that internally there are zero confirmed dates on WWE’s calendar following the show in Saudi Arabia on June 7th.
It’s been made official that Brock Lesnar’s UFC career is over, so The Beast has limited options when it comes to his future outside of the wrestling ring and since he’s notorious for signing short deals with WWE, so it could be that Lesnar makes his official return at SummerSlam once again before taking a hiatus until next year’s WrestleMania season.
