Every WWE fan knows that Superstars do not break characters easily. It takes a really special circumstance for a Superstar to break character. One such veteran Superstar who did this is Brock Lesnar.

After his WrestleMania match against Bill Goldberg, Lesnar was walking away from the ring with the championship belt over his shoulder. Right at the front of the barricades was a young fan who held out his fist hoping Lesnar would give him a fist bump.

Now, this was Brock Lesnar, a pro-wrestler who rarely broke character. On top of that, the event was WrestleMania, The Grandest Stage of All. However, this was the fan’s lucky day!

While walking past him, Brock Lesnar actually fist bumped the young fan! This was one of the few times when ‘The Beast’ strayed away from character.

Apart from this, there are a few others times when Lesnar stopped to interact with his fans without uttering any words. He shook hands with a kid and a couple of other fans who were standing near the arena with their hands held out.

Undoubtedly, these moments are always special for fans, especially the younger fans.

Will Brock Lesnar return to WWE?

It’s been a while since Lesnar has been absent from the WWE ring. Several fans want him to return and take on Bobby Lashley, a match of the beasts. However, neither WWE nor Lesnar have said anything about his return.

In fact, it’s not just fans who want to witness a match between ‘The Almighty’ and ‘The Beast’ but also Lashley. He has often claimed a match against Lesnar will count as his dream match becoming reality.

Lesnar and Lashley could wrestle for the WWE Championship. Most expected him to return at WrestleMania 37 to take on Lashley, but it didn’t go as hoped. Furthermore, he hasn’t appeared in any other capacity at the company either. It’s possible Brock Lesnar may not come back to the ring anytime soon.

If not Lashley, Lesnar can return against Roman Reigns too. WWE can use the angle of Paul Heyman representing Reigns and refusing to switch sides. Unfortunately, no possible scenarios of him returning have ever been mentioned by the company.

Do you want Brock Lesnar to return against Roman Reigns or Bobby Lashley? Let us know in the comments below.
