Brock Lesnar allowed his WWE contract to expire. Now he is no longer with any company. As a free agent he is permitted to talk with anyone, but AEW isn’t releasing any information.
Tony Khan did a media teleconference to hype All Out this Saturday. We will have full coverage of the event right here at Ringside News. During his time with the media, the Beast Incarnate’s status came up.
Cassidy Haynes was on the teleconference and he reported that Tony Khan was tight-lipped about any talks that AEW has had with Brock Lesnar.
Tony Khan was asked about Brock Lesnar being a free agent and if he might find his way to AEW. Tony says he can’t comment on that right now.
This is a very interesting situation, but all contract talks with Brock Lesnar have that sense of unpredictability. Lesnar could wait for WWE to back up another money truck to his home. He also has the power to seek out his own deals to see what interest is out there.
Any time that Brock Lesnar has signed a new deal his price goes up. WWE doesn’t want him going anywhere else and now AEW could be a viable option.
