However, considering several PPVs are coming up, it’s possible that Lesnar will return during one of them. The one that is coming up on Sunday, April 21st, is WWE Fastlane.

This is a good event for ‘The Beast’ to return since it gives him just enough time to make a statement before WrestleMania. In fact, the company can book him in a proper rivalry that will pave his Road to the ‘Grandest Stage of Them all.’.

The Beasts of WWE face off at Fastlane

One of the champions Lesnar can challenge is Bobby Lashley. He is the current WWE Champion, and a vast portion of the WWE Universe has wanted to witness a match between Lesnar and Lashley.

On top of that, Bobby Lashley does not have a match scheduled for Fastlane. If Lesnar returns, he won’t have to crash another match but just challenge a champion.

In fact, ‘The Almighty’ has always hinted at wanting a match with Brock Lesnar. If WWE can make this happen, it will be a treat for sore eyes.

Both of them are beasts, and a match between them for the WWE Championship will be the perfect way to set the mood for The Grandest Stage of All.

Brock Lesnar can challenge Roman Reigns

Apart from Bobby Lashley, Brock Lesnar can challenge Roman Reigns as well.

Roman Reigns is Paul Heyman’s new client, and if Lesnar returns, he will want his former counsel on his side. This could be another reason he returns at Fastlane.

While Roman Reigns already has a match scheduled against Daniel Bryan for Fastlane, Lesnar can still make a return and obstruct that match.

It is well known that Brock Lesnar does what Brock Lesnar wants, and it doesn’t seem as if any of that will change if he returns to WWE. Hence, there’s no stopping him from challenging the WWE Universal Champion while WWE books Reigns for another match.

‘The Beast’ takes on ‘The Scottish Psychopath’ again

A third reason why Brock Lesnar can return at Fastlane 2021 is to fight Drew McIntyre at WrestleMania.

It was at WrestleMania 36 when Brock Lesnar put Drew McIntyre over. Next, Drew McIntyre is scheduled to fight Bobby Lashley (WWE Champion) at WrestleMania 37.

Now, if Brock Lesnar returns at Fastlane and defeats Lashley, he becomes the WWE Champion. This means that Drew McIntyre will wrestle ‘The Beast’ at WrestleMania 37. This would make Lesnar’s journey from WrestleMania 36 to WrestleMania 37 a complete circle.
