Brock Lesnar leaves WWE: The Beast Incarnate is now a free agent after failing to come to terms for a new contract. The WWE pulled his merchandise down earlier in the day.
This has been a very weird year in general and wrestling in particular. Wrestlemania did not emanate from the biggest stadiums in America but was hosted by the Performance center, Eoman Reigns is a heel now and Paul Heyman is his new manager while his previous client Brock Lesnar is no longer in the WWE.
The WWE removed Lesnar’s merchandise from their website earlier in the day sparking rumours of a rift between the two parties. Lesnar isn’t a full time performer within the promotion and usually takes long intervals between appearances. However, his current hiatus is the longest he’s been away during a negotiation process.
Brock Lesnar leaves WWE?
According to PWInsider the WWE and Brock Lesnar have failed to come to terms with a new contract. The report states that the two parties have been working on a new deal but have hit an impasse and have paused discussions.
According to the report, ‘this leaves Lesnar on the open market where he could, if he desires, field offers from outside WWE, whether it be AEW or other wrestling promotions, UFC, or even outside endeavors beyond combat sports.’
Wresrtlevotes also corroborated the news of Lesnar’s free agency. However, they added that when Lesnar is ready to comeback he’ll let Vince McMahon know.
The reports of Brock Lesnar being a free agent are true. In talking with a source, the belief is that once Lesnar is ready to work again, he’ll let McMahon know. Or vice versa, if WWE needs Brock, they will present a deal he can’t refuse. Currently, it’s nothing more than that.

Lesnar, who is one of the biggest draw in combat sports, is unlikely to go to another wrestling promotion. Vince will dole out the big bucks before the question even arises. As far as UFC is concerned, at Lesnar’s age, he isn’t probably gearing for another round in the octagon. The likeliest scenario is the pair reuniting sometime in the future.
Although, Vince may not call him back this year considering he didn’t feel the need to do so at SummerSlam, their 2nd biggest show of the year. The next time we see Lesnar in a WWE ring might be after fans are allowed to attend events.
