Dave Meltzer noted on today's edition of Wrestling Observer Radio that WWE scrapping original Strowman plans could be connected to the recent steroid allegations made against Roman Reigns. White responded saying that the odds of Lesnar returning to the company were "very, very, very good". A greater challenge awaits Reigns at Wrestlemania however: A return to Suplex City, as the conqueror known as Brock Lesnar awaits him at the end of that road.
The goal of the build to the Reigns vs. Lesnar WrestleMania match on April 8th is to get Reigns cheered to lead to his win.
Following Brock Lesnar not appearing on Monday Night RAW despite being advertised, there was some concern over his scheduled WWE Live show appearance in Chicago on Saturday. Over the weekend, UFC president, Dana White posted to his social media a picture of himself with former UFC heavyweight champion and current WWE Universal champion, Brock Lesnar.
After a massive effort in the Elimination Chamber, Roman Reigns finally triumphed on Sunday when he got the decisive pinfall victory over Braun Strowman. He competed at UFC 200 in 2016, though he did so while under contract with WWE and took part in the main event of SummerSlam just one month later.
Now White has poured more fuel on the fire to speculation that former UFC heavyweight champion could be returning to the octagon in the near future. DO you want to see the 40-year-old Lesnar back in the UFC?
For now, Lesnar will nearly certainly continue to stoke the flames on a possible return to the UFC while he decides on his future to either come back to fighting for one more run or stick around with WWE for another long term stint. Lesnar defeated Mark Hunt via unanimous decision, but that result was ultimately overturned to a no contest due to the failed drug test.
There's been a lot of talk lately about Brock Lesnar' status in the WWE. The real question is has WWE invested to much time and energy in a champion who doesn't even want to be there?
