WWE is taking steps to distance itself from Brock Lesnar, as evident in the recent developments surrounding one of the special editions of WWE 2K24.
In light of the sex trafficking lawsuit filed against Vince McMahon and WWE, which also implicated a former WWE/UFC Heavyweight Champion, identified by the Wall Street Journal as Brock Lesnar, the wrestling organization has made significant changes to its plans. These changes include scrapping Lesnar’s involvement in high-profile events such as the Royal Rumble, Elimination Chamber, and WrestleMania 40.
Furthermore, the WWE 2K Supercard mobile game has also removed Lesnar from its roster, and his merchandise on WWE Shop has been heavily discounted. It appears that Lesnar’s presence will be minimized and potentially eliminated from WWE licensee content moving forward, with no intentions of featuring him on television.
On a related note, 2K Games has just unveiled a sneak peek of the gameplay for the highly anticipated WWE 2K24 video game.
Interestingly, the cover of the WWE 2K24 Forty Years of WrestleMania edition has been modified to exclude Brock Lesnar. Fans can now pre-order the game for various platforms, including Steam, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series S/X. You can see the original one below and the updated cover.
