Brock Lesnar has been absent on WWE television since the SummerSlam Premium Live Event, where he squared off against Cody Rhodes. However, his absence might be ending very soon.
Cody Rhodes achieved a significant victory over Brock Lesnar at SummerSlam, marking a noteworthy performance. After the match, Lesnar celebrated with Rhodes, giving a strong endorsement to the American Nightmare.
While speaking on Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer suggested that this week might not be the ideal week for Brock Lesnar’s return, considering the competition from football games and the Emmy Awards, which could lead to lower ratings.
Meltzer noted that if Lesnar is set to return for the Royal Rumble, the following week would be more likely. He presumed Lesnar’s involvement in the Rumble and anticipated any angle involving him to be shot during the event itself.
“Maybe next week. I would think this would not be the week to have Brock Lesnar return, given this might be one of the lower rated shows considering they went against the football games and the Emmy Awards. If he’s going to return for the Rumble, next week would be the week. If he going to return after, it could be a couple weeks later.”
“I would presume he’s in the Rumble and I presume any angle he’s going to do would be shot in The Rumble itself.”
It was previously reported that Brock Lesnar’s return was already in place for this year. Brock Lesnar’s WrestleMania 40 promo was also spotted on a WWE production truck. With the Royal Rumble coming up on January 27th, perhaps The Beast Incarnate will make his presence felt on the go-home edition of Monday Night RAW.
