There’s no answer for this. The company has revealed nothing and Lesnar has mentioned nothing either. It’s upto the fans to make an assumption and hope they’re correct. However, there’s one individual within WWE who has simplified it for everyone, that’s Paul Heyman.

He explained that Lesnar is free to do whatever he wants to. There’s no coaxing him into deciding, and definitely no way to predict what his next move will be.

“Brock Lesnar does what Brock Lesnar wants to do. If Brock Lesnar wants to return to WWE, he will. If Brock Lesnar wants to take the UFC Championship from Francis Ngannou, he will.”

To be fair, Heyman has said that about Brock Lesnar since the time they started working together. Unfortunately, it still doesn’t give the WWE Universe an answer to the question.

Is Brock Lesnar returning to WWE?

As of now, there’s no answer. However, there’s a higher chance of him actually returning to WWE.

He’s not yet had his last match, and it’s unlikely him dropping the title to Drew McIntyre at WrestleMania was his last match.

If the magnitude of his impact on the fans is taken into account, his last feud needs to be one that will dominate WWE’s history for years to come. It could be against McIntyre, against Lashley, against anybody WWE sees fit. BUT, there has to be one!

Moreover, it’s not like WWE to leave the fans with a cliffhanger when it’s about a megastar. The fans knew when The Rock or The Undertaker had their last matches. They knew it would be awhile before their presence graced the squared circle. With The Beast, it wasn’t known widely.

A possible reason WWE hasn’t mentioned Lesnar is because of the pandemic. The global pandemic put a halt on fans attending live events. The company could have planned to wait out this period, and bring The Beast back when the time is right.
