Brock Lesnar is no longer under contract with WWE. Wrestling.inc reported that WWE removed Lesnar’s merchandise from its official website over the weekend. Lesnar and WWE did not agree on the terms for a new deal. This has happened in the past as well when Lesnar negotiates with WWE for a new deal. Usually, Lesnar would have a choice to go to UFC or stay back in WWE. However, AEW has recently changed the landscape of the professional wrestling world. Hence, it gives Lesnar more options while negotiating a new deal with WWE.
Brock Lesnar is one of the biggest combat sports stars in recent times. He can bring in the viewers whenever he is on screen. Therefore, his free agency can fetch him a handsome contract. Moreover, it will benefit the company to bring the audience to their wrestling TV shows. There are multiple options available for Brock Lesnar.
Lesnar can head back to WWE
There are more chances for Lesnar to re-negotiate a contract with WWE and head back. Lesnar is a master at playing with contract negotiation with WWE. Losing Brock Lesnar to another wrestling promotion will be a great loss for WWE. Hence, it is very likely that Vince McMahon offers a good deal to bring him back to his programming. Moreover, Brock Lesnar can have multiple matches with various new superstars that will interest the WWE Universe.
He can have good matches against “The Fiend” Bray Wyatt or “Limitless” Keith Lee. The showdown between Lee and Lesnar at Royal Rumble 2020 was one of the highlights of that show. WWE audience would love to see these two behemoths tear apart against each other. Roman Reigns has recently aligned with Lesnar’s advocate Paul Heyman and won WWE Universal Championship. This can contribute to a great rivalry between Lesnar and Reigns
A potential return to UFC
Lesnar fought Mark Hunt at UFC 200 while still in contract with WWE in 2016. This type of deal will be attractive to Brock Lesnar’s eyes. Lesnar has always talked on returning back to the Octagon for one last match. He made his intention clear when he showed up to confront Daniel Cormier at UFC 226 in 2018. Lesnar even reentered USADA’s drug-testing pool in 2018 to prepare for the comeback. However, this didn’t happen as UFC and Lesnar failed to come to a financial deal.
With his current free agent status, there are chances that Brock heads back to UFC. There is a potential money match between him and Jon Jones. Then Daniel Cormier can come out of retirement to have one last match against Brock. Francis Ngannou has expressed his desire to lock horns with Lesnar. Moreover, Lesnar can face Stipe Miocic in his return match, which will be a clash worth watching. Hence, this will be the best time for Brock Lesnar to make his return to the Ultimate Fighting Championship.
Brock Lesnar in All Elite Wrestling (AEW)
It will be a huge deal if AEW is able to sign Brock Lesnar. This will help the fledgling wrestling promotion to gain some credibility among wrestling fans. They will be able to get mainstream attention, TV ratings, and, more importantly, pay-per-view buys. AEW is owned by Shahid Khan, who is the proud owner of Jacksonville Jaguars and Fulham FC. They do not have a shortage of money and can offer a magnificent deal to Brock Lesnar. They even have more financial resources than WWE. Hence, they have the ability to make a deal that is acceptable to Lesnar.
Moreover, there are plenty of new opponents that can have great matches against Brock Lesnar. Kenny Omega can challenge the sheer strength of Brock Lesnar with his quickness and agility. Brock Lesnar can fight with his old nemesis Chris Jericho with whom he has heat in real life. A match with the current AEW champion, Jon Moxley, is a possibility. Moxley fought as Dean Ambrose on WWE programming and had a rather forgetful match versus Lesnar at Wrestlemania 32. This can present an opportunity for both wrestlers to erase that blemish on their storied career. No doubt that there are numerous possibilities, but the probability of Lesnar heading to AEW is still low.
Brock Lesnar is money
There are numerous other options for Lesnar as like, New Japan Pro Wrestling, ONE Championship, and Bellator. But it highly unlikely that Lesnar will land up on these shows. It is given, however, that wherever Brock Lesnar lands up, he will make tons of money for himself and the wrestling promotion. What do you think will be Lesnar’s next move?
