The names that keep circling around are Ronda Rousey, Becky Lynch, Seth Rollins, Jinder Mahal, and many more. However, the biggest name on this list is the firmer WWE Champion himself- Brock Lesnar.

Brock Lesnar’s return is up to Brock Lesnar

‘The Beast incarnate’ has been touted to return to challenge Drew McIntyre or Roman Reigns at WrestleMania. However, there is absolute radio silence on his status.

In a recent interview with Hindustan Times, WWE COO Triple H updated fans on whether the Brock Lesnar match is on the cards for the big ramp to WrestleMania. 

“One of the things I have learned about him is Brock Lesnar does what Brock Lesnar wants to do. Nobody can talk him into doing things differently,” explained ‘The Game’. “So time will tell. If he wants to show up at WrestleMania he will, if he doesn’t he won’t. The only way to get that answer is to call Brock Lesnar.”

Triple H may be up to a WrestleMania fight himself

Brock Lesnar may just be out of the picture as of now. Although, Triple H seems like he could put up a show himself at the main event. AJ Styles has expressed his desire to fight ‘The Game’ at WrestleMania, and the 14-time World Champion may just take him up on that offer.

“You never say never in WWE,” said Triple H, who recently fought Randy Orton in a surprising match on Raw. “We had an opportunity and moment in time where Drew Mcintyre was found to be Covid positive and could not appear as he was in quarantine. I got the call.

“Every time you get the opportunity to show up in front of WWE fans, even though not in person, you hate to pass up on that opportunity. As far as a one-off is concerned, we’ll see but right now I am focused on Superstar Spectacle. We’ll see as far as me stepping back in the ring,” concluded ‘The Cerebral Assassin’.

If Brock Lesnar does return, he will surely go straight for Roman in what would be a major showdown. Since Drew McIntyre seems preoccupied with Goldberg, we can assume that Brock will shift his focus towards to SmackDown throne. Although, he could decide to take out two old rivals at once in Goldberg and Drew McIntyre.
