Now, let’s clarify that the company is not releasing Reigns or Lashley. The Universal Champion and the WWE Champion remain with the company and continue their reigns. However, the WWE Universe wants The Beast to return for a feud with Bobby Lashley. Unfortunately, the company wants Lesnar to return for a feud against Roman Reigns.

At least, this is what Dave Meltzer is reporting.

The potential return of Brock Lesnar against Roman Reigns or Bobby Lashley

First, let’s consider Brock Lesnar returning against Bobby Lashley.

When Lesnar dropped his title, he was the WWE Champion. He dropped it against Drew McIntyre at WrestleMania and disappeared from the scene. The common assumption is that if The Beast returns, he will do so against the WWE Champion to revive his former glory.

Currently, Bobby Lashley is the WWE Champion.

Another reason he should return against Lashley is because that’s what the fans want. Making this dream match a reality is a money making match. Why shouldn’t WWE cash in on this dream match? Furthermore, this match will not only reel in viewership globally but now that fans are returning to watch live events, it will be a house full match!

Now, if Brock Lesnar returns against Roman Reigns, it’ll still be a money making match. However, the impact of this match will be different.

With Lesnar vs. Lashley, the match was about the WWE Championship where two beasts face off.

Coming to Lesnar vs. Reigns, it’ll be about who is the better one, the one with more potential. Reason? Paul Heyman.

Paul Heyman works with the top guys on the roster. He was working with Lesnar, and after Lesnar disappeared and Reigns returned, he started working with Reigns. Hence, if The Beast returns against The Tribal Chief, the match will be about being the better Superstar so Heyman works with him.
