WWE without Brock Lesnar is a weird place. The sight of the Beast Incarnate without a WWE Championship on his massive shoulders is very unusual. WWE would often bring Lesnar back for WrestleMania and put the belt on him so he could elevate another superstar. Will the ‘Beast’ make his return to WWE at the 2021 Royal Rumble, and if he does, what are the chances of him winning it?

To all Lesnar fans out there, the odds of Brock Lesnar returning at the Royal Rumble are quite high. He would make a much better winner than the likes of AJ Styles, John Cena, Braun Strowman, or even The Rock. Pushing the Beast always leads to better ratings, so seeing Brock as the winner won’t be surprising at all.

If Lesnar were to return at the Rumble, the #30 spot seems like the prime position for him to enter. The Beast can walk out and destroy everyone in the ring, before either tossing the last person in the match, or becoming the last person to be tossed.

Brock Lesnar’s history at the Royal Rumble

Brock has won the Royal Rumble before, which the commentators will constantly remind the viewers at home. In 2003, Lesnar eliminated Undertaker to win his first Rumble match, before going to WrestleMania 19 and beating Kurt Angle for the WWE Championship.

Lesnar also holds the record for the most eliminations in a Rumble match. The Beast entered the 2020 Royal Rumble at #1, and eliminated every participant from #2 to #14, before Drew McIntyre kicked him over the top rope. These included behemoths like Erick Rowan, Braun Strowman, Keith Lee, Big E. He even eliminated his former best friend and college roommate Shelton Benjamin in evil fashion.

Can the Beast win his second Rumble?

If Brock Lesnar wins the Royal Rumble match, there will be two mouth-watering clashes that could take place at WrestleMania. One is a match that we’ve seen before, but the stakes are the highest it has ever been. The other is a huge rematch from last year’s WrestleMania.

Roman Reigns vs Brock Lesnar is a match that has a lot more meat to it, now that Paul Heyman is Reigns’ special counsel. The former advocate of the Beast Incarnate has switched allegiances, and Brock may not be too happy about not having his advocate in his corner.

Drew McIntyre vs Brock Lesnar is a match that fans deserve to see again. The drab Performance Center environment and no fans tarnished last year’s WrestleMania main event. McIntyre and Lesnar spammed finishing moves until Brock succumbed to a final Claymore. With twenty minutes in the Thunderdome, the two beasts can put on a brutal and hard-hitting slugfest.
