Brock Lesnar’s future in WWE is even more interesting now that he has “retired” from MMA. The fact is that Lesnar was asking for more money than Dana White wanted to pay him so the retirement announcement was on UFC’s end. However, Lesnar will keep making money with WWE in the meantime.
Brad Shepard reports that Brock Lesnar will work the Saudi Arabia show on June 7th and the company is assuming that SummerSlam will happen as well. However, nothing is clear because there are “zero confirmed dates” for Lesnar at this point past the Super ShowDown in Jeddah.
According to a source in #WWE, Brock Lesnar will do his spot at the Saudi show and probably #SummerSlam, although that part isn’t clear because internally there are zero confirmed dates for Brock after the Saudi show. @HeymanHustle
Brock Lesnar historically likes to sign shorter deals because he negotiates new contracts while playing two or more sides against each other for his services. Only time will tell what Brock Lesnar’s next move is, but it seems like UFC wasn’t willing to match his high asking price for another fight. That doesn’t mean there are no other options for The Beast Incarnate.
