For those that haven’t heard, the last few weeks in WWE have been interesting, to say the least. Brock Lesnar walked out of WWE Raw two weeks ago in Nashville, Tennessee. Lesnar walked out because of a contract dispute between he and Vince McMahon. Despite his Raw walkout, many in WWE still believe he will show up for WrestleMania in three weeks.
Lesnar is a businessman first, WWE superstar second. There is no way Lesnar will skip the biggest day of the year in WWE. In fact, Vince McMahon isn’t planning for a “plan B” in case Lesnar decides not to show up at WrestleMania. The “plan B” would obviously showcase Daniel Bryan in the main event with Roman Reigns. That, or WWE would have Seth Rollins somewhere in the main event.
However, it’s hard to replace a guy like Brock Lesnar. Speaking of replacing the WWE World Heavyweight champion, when he walked out of WWE Raw a few weeks ago, that spent one of his dates owed to WWE. Does he owe the WWE another day of work? According to the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, there’s speculation on the possibility that Lesnar might show up one more time, on top of his scheduled appearances.
“Lesnar’s current deal expires after the post Wrestlemania Raw event, so the only date he could be scheduled to make the missed one up is the March 16th edition airing from Des Moines, Iowa. The WWE World Heavyweight Champion is already booked for the March 9th and the March, 23rd editions of Raw. At this time, he still has not been added to any new shows.
“It’s still the idea, but many in WWE think that Lesnar is going to resign after Wrestlemania 31, when his deal expires.”
Brock Lesnar also shook up the WWE Universe by showing up at UFC 184. If that didn’t get the WWE fans stirring, his photo with Dana White also did the trick. There’s been speculation that Brock Lesnar will fight Frank Mir in their third fight at Madison Square Garden. That’s purely a rumor right now, so don’t read too much into it.
If he does decide to leave WWE, they have the proper tools to keep the company going. Seth Rollins, Dean Ambrose, Roman Reigns, Bray Wyatt, and NXT are enough to keep the fans coming back for more. NXT stars like Finn Balor, Adrian Neville, and Kevin Owens will come up soon enough, so the WWE fans will forget about Lesnar when he leaves. Even if he doesn’t, the contract Lesnar will sign won’t have him start until SummerSlam in August.
