Brock Lesnar has been missing from WWE television since the SummerSlam Premium Live Event, where he squared off against Cody Rhodes. However, his return seems unlikely in the near future due to his involvement in Vince McMahon’s trafficking lawsuit. Now it appears Eric Bischoff claimed Brock Lesnar has no motivation to resurrect his career.
The Royal Rumble had initial plans for Brock Lesnar’s participation, but due to his involvement in the legal issues surrounding Vince McMahon’s trafficking lawsuit, those plans were altered.
While speaking on his 83 Weeks podcast, WWE Hall of Famer Eric Bischoff claimed that The Beast Incarnate had no motivation to return to wrestling and would much rather just work on his farm instead.
“I don’t think he’s (Brock Lesnar) motivated to be a public person or is going to try to reclaim his fame, if you will, for lack of a better term. And he’s got enough money, he doesn’t need it.”
“Obviously, he was going to get back involved in the business again but if you can put five or seven or eight million dollars in your bank account after putting in a couple days work, who’s not going to do that? If you’re physically capable of doing it, whether you love the business or not, if you’re smart, you’ll do it. Stack that cash, go buy another farm, go buy another one of those $700,000 John Deere tractors or whatever they are, plant more potatoes or soybeans or whatever it is you do on your farm. That’s what I would think Brock’s going to do. I don’t think there’s any motivation on his part to try to resurrect his career.”
Brock Lesnar was also removed from the cover of the WWE 2K24 Forty Years of WrestleMania edition. 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.
