Time Table for Brock Lesnar’s WWE Return Revealed

(WWE Heavyweight Champion Brock Lesnar)

Former WWE World Heavyweight Champion and UFC Heavyweight Champion Brock Lesnar recently had his titles taken away from him at Wrestlemania 31. The “Beast Incarnate” Lesnar had been taken to the limits by the Royal Rumble winner, Roman Reigns when Mr. Money in the Bank, Seth Rollins came out and cashed in.

To cash in a money in the bank contract means a wrestler can begin a match against the WWE World Heavyweight Champion anytime, any place or anywhere. In this case it was in the main event at Levi’s Stadium. Rollins utilized his finishing maneuver, the curb stomp, to take Lesnar out of the ring and the match then used it once more on Roman Reigns to win.

The next night on WWE Raw, Brock invoked his championship rematch clause. Seth Rollins agreed….momentarily. The newly crowned WWE World Heavyweight Champion had a change of heart (much like a super heel champion should) and blamed “jet-lag” that his performance as a champion would be sub-par.

This did not sit well with Lesnar. Brock dismantled Rollins’s J&J Security, the announce table which sent Booker T and John Bradshaw Layfield both the the hospital. Then he used his finishing maneuver, the F’5, to Michael Cole and on two camera guys, prompting Stephanie McMahon to come out and suspend Lesnar indefinitely.

This was all to write Brock off of TV for the time being. Lesnar signed a contract with the WWE over a return to the UFC and it is being reported that it is very similar to his other recent agreements with the company. He will be on and off television for months at a time so the WWE can use their biggest draw when they need him most. Brock is scheduled to return (along with his manager Paul Heyman) near the building up to Summerslam.

Brock has been used in the last three Summerslams in a large capacity. Last year he destroyed John Cena for the WWE World Heavyweight Title in a major squash match. The year before he took out CM Punk in what many fans enjoyed due to the similarities the match had with a UFC scrap, not on the feet but based on the amount of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu grappling maneuvers took place on the mat. Then the year before he started a long feud with WWE COO Triple H, after he broke his arm in an arm lock at that year’s Summerslam.

However the WWE can call up Brock at any time they believe that they need their biggest draw to boost ratings.

Highly passionate MMA Journalist, and I've followed the sport ever since my favorite fighter, Vitor Belfort won the heavyweight tournament at UFC 12. After that I've tried to go to every local MMA event around the Gulf Coast and surrounding areas and decided to make it a point to have a career in some aspect in the fighting sport other than fighting in general (didn't want to ruin my face). I'm currently enrolled at Southeastern Louisiana University working towards a degree in Communication. I cover MMA, Boxing and Football for The Daily Star newspaper in my hometown of Hammond, Louisiana, in addition to working as a promotional writer for a local Boxing promotion known as BoxnCar and I cover boxing for 8countnews.com however SciFighting.com is my home. My main goal is to bring more publicity to MMA in my area and to the sport as a whole as all of us involved with the sport are merely scratching the surface and laying the foundation of what mixed martial arts competition will be further down the road.
