New Reports Suggest Brock Lesnar Was Pulled From WWE Raw On Purpose

New Reports Suggest Brock Lesnar Was Pulled From WWE Raw On Purpose

For the better part of a year, WWE has been building to Brock Lesnar defending his Universal Championship at WrestleMania 34.

The former part owner of UFC was making an appearance on Sirius XM' Radio in the United States and was asked how good the chances of Lesnar returning were and he answered saying, "Very, very, very good". Reigns talked about how he was born into the business and said Lesnar is just in WWE for the money, while he and everyone else on the roster love what they do and put their bodies on the line for the fans at WWE events all over the world night after night.

It was expected on this past Monday's episode of RAW that Lesnar and Reigns would face-off against one another for the first time. "What are the odds we see Brock fight again in the UFC?".

Remember how expertly WWE and Lesnar trolled us three years ago in the walkup to WrestleMania 31, to the point where we all tuned in to a live Lesnar ESPN interview in which he was supposed to confirm his pending departure for UFC?

PWInsider adds that Lesnar may have skipped RAW as a hardline way of negotiating with WWE as his contract is due to expire after WrestleMania 34, or it could be that WWE was upset with Lesnar and told him not to come to the show due to the photo with White.

The 40-year-old returned to the UFC in the summer of 2016 after a five-year absence and beat Mark Hunt in his comeback fight.

Paul Heyman announced that Lesnar would be going face-to-face with the Elimination Chamber victor on the post-PPV Raw but instead we got a fantastic Roman Reigns promo saying that Lesnar wasn't there.

The current WWE Universal Champion still has more than six months to serve on a suspension after he officially un-retires from MMA, a ban that won't begin until after he re-enlists into USADA's random drug testing program.

"I think Brock's under contract though right now, you know, but uh..."

Lesnar, in addition to his WWE stardom, is one of the most popular fighters in UFC history.

If Lesnar decides to leave WWE and pursue one more run with UFC, he wouldn't be able to fight right away.
