Brock Lesnar's finisher at NXT Heatwave—Is the Beast Incarnate making a WWE comeback?

Brock Lesnar has been gone from WWE for quite some time. There was some controversy and lawsuits around him for a long time, which is why he was not involved in the promotion, but it appears like all of that has been resolved. Lesnar, who has been out of the spotlight, may be returning soon. These positive talks materialized due to an incident that transpired at the NXT Heatwave event.

NXT Heatwave emerged as a massive event for the Black and Gold brand, and WWE did a great job presenting the PLE. There were several notable matches, one of which was when the current NXT North American Champion, Oba Femi, was challenged for the championship by Wes Lee. This match told a quality story accompanied by an incredible in-ring showing. Nevertheless, the WWE Universe won’t remember the match for the action it displayed but for another moment that stood out.

Poll of the day

Do you think Brock Lesnar's return to WWE is imminent?

Absolutely

Not a chance

Maybe, but not soon

Only if the money is right

One moment that lingered in the minds of the crowd came up when Oba Femi hurled Wes Lee into the air. The toss was designed to resemble pizza dough, and it looked spectacular, like a technique a champion would employ to damage his opponents. Perhaps, its the young star’s desire to pay tribute to the former UFC champion.

Since his debut in 2002, The Beast Incarnate has utilized F5, and it is such a legendary move that fans do not expect other wrestlers to replicate it. When Oba Femi executed it, there must have been a lot of pressure on the young talent because of the move’s history, but it appears like he pulled it off brilliantly. Moreover, Femi’s replication of the iconic move prompted talks of Lesnar’s return to WWE. But what could The Beast do once he makes a comeback to the wrestling promotion?

What is Brock Lesnar going to do once he returns?

This implied action by Oba Femi may indicate that Lesnar’s return is imminent. The WWE might have been testing the waters for a potential reaction and they might have gotten it. But what will Lesnar do once he returns to the ring? There are already suggestions that Brock Lesnar may be engaged in the Bloodline storyline as a result of his old advocate Paul Heyman being knocked down by the group.

This might be a fantastic plot for the former WWE World Champion to return to, as it will elevate the narrative even more and help other smaller talents rise even more. Although this has not been revealed in any sources, assumptions are always possible.
