Brock Lesnar's return: Is he still the beast, or has his time in WWE passed?

The Beast has not been at his best for a while now. Fans have missed the sight of the legendary Brock Lesnar in the squared circle ever since WWE made a firm decision to force him out of active competition amidst the Vince McMahon lawsuit controversy. While there have been several mixed hints and teases regarding his long-desired return throughout, no official update has reached us, triggering the hype upward. That said, despite all the uncertainty surrounding him, the people who get to witness a piece of Lesnar in their lives strongly keep it in their treasure boxes for life.

A former coach and former tag team partner of the multi-time world champion, Shelton Benjamin is no different.

Although it all started with a grain of salt, the duo billed as The Minnesota Stretching Crew won three tag team championships in developmental.

Sitting for an interview with Chris Van Villet, Benjamin detailed the unforgettable experience of working closely with the legend. ”Brock Lesnar is absolutely on that list because Brock is a freak. Uh, he’s a different kind of animal, but he is, he is. Like I think I’ve said this to you before. He’s the most phenomenal athlete that I’ve ever personally seen”, he noted.

While we never know if Benjamin and Lesnar will ever reunite inside the squared circle or not, the current rumors card can see the latter reuniting with another close buddy cum former manager, Paul Heyman.

Will Brock Lesnar return to make an explosive impact on The Bloodline storyline? 

Brock Lesnar was last seen locking horns with Cody Rhodes and ending up on the other side of the win column at SummerSlam 2023. Following the defeat, the 46-year-old went into a temporary hiatus to rejuvenate, being completely unaware of the trouble that awaited him shortly after. His time off continues to get extended as he unintentionally invited the wrath as a result of the lawsuit controversy. However, given Triple H has previously mentioned bringing him back, once the dust settles, the anticipation has started to run wild. The current Bloodline storyline has recorded The Wise Man receiving a demeaning and brutal treatment from the new Bloodline in the past weeks on TV, eventually culminating in an exit in the past weeks on TV.

As we are advancing toward the highly hyped-up Bloodline civil war, Fans are wondering if the former rivals, Roman Reigns and Brock Lesnar can reunite and return to take revenge for their close friend’s assault.

Nevertheless, the WWE Universe can be treated to the former WWE champion’s freak athleticism and prowess
