Dave Meltzer previously reported that there was backstage talk about Bobby Lashley facing Brock Lesnar after WrestleMania but also said that the match would only happen if Lesnar doesn’t leave WWE to pursuit UFC again.
Meltzer was asked again today on Twitter if there are still plans for the rumored match between Lashely and Lesnar after WrestleMania, in which Meltzer indicated that Brock may not even be in the company at that point.
Lesnar may not be with the company at that point. https://t.co/Ll3OyapBih

As previously reported, Lesnar’s deal with WWE expires around WrestleMania but there is a clause that would see him stick around with WWE until August if he does decide to leave. In the past, Lesnar has used UFC as a leveraging tool to get more out of his WWE deal and that could be going on here again.
