Brock Lesnar has been absent on WWE television since the SummerSlam Premium Live Event, where he squared off against Cody Rhodes. However, it is unlikely he’ll be back anytime soon after his involvement in Vince McMahon’s trafficking lawsuit. Now it appears he has been removed from a WWE game as well.
The Royal Rumble originally had different plans, with Brock Lesnar slated to participate in the match. However, Lesnar’s involvement in the legal turmoil surrounding Vince McMahon‘s trafficking lawsuit.
According to PWInsider, WWE 2K Supercard mobile game players noted Brock Lesnar’s disappearance from the game. Sources suggest Brock Lesnar may be downplayed or removed from 2K projects and potentially other licensed products.
”Several PWInsider.com readers sent word that Brock Lesnar has disappeared from the WWE 2K Supercard Digital Collectible Game online. In asking around, we have confirmed Lesnar was indeed pulled from the game.”
”It would appear that 2K, as a licensee for WWE, is following the company’s lead after WWE backed off on using Lesnar last weekend at the Royal Rumble event.”
”Going forward, PWInsider.com has been told by sources familiar to the matter that we should expect to see Lesnar downplayed (if not outright removed as he was in the Supercard game) as much as possible going forward by 2K and potentially other licensees.”
We have previously reported that Brock Lesnar could be done with WWE for good. Only time will tell whether The Beast Incarnate will return to WWE, as things do not look positive for him at the moment.
