Brock Lesnar appeared last on WWE programming at WrestleMania 36 earlier this year. For the second consecutive year, on The Show of Shows, he lost a world title. This time around, he lost the WWE Championship to Drew McIntyre in a match that lasted for just five minutes to go into his usual hiatus from WWE TV.
Going by the recent reports by WrestleVotes, WWE is not considering Brock Lesnar in their SummerSlam plans this year. It has a lot to do with the absence of fans from TV tapings. With their no-showing, there’s no point in presenting the biggest box office attraction of the company. Thus chances of seeing a mega match against Bobby Lashley are not anymore on the SummerSlam card.
Lashley who last week celebrated his 44th birthday is certainly aware of that who just can’t wait to get into the ring with Brock Lesnar. He received a rare endorsement from Vince McMahon that only a few in the sports entertainment can expect.
But that’s not what The All-Mighty was really looking for. He seems to be standing with the one and only pledge in the WWE and that’s to get his hands on The Beast Incarnate.
Bobby Lashley tweeted out a thank you to everyone who sent him birthday wishes. But he also let knew his wish on the occasion of his birthday of getting the long-awaited match against Brock Lesnar.
“Thank you everyone for the birthday wishes. Same as last year, my only wish is for @BrockLesnar to finally get in the ring with me.”

Is seems he started trending #BrockvsBobby among the pro-wrestling fans. If the trend takes off then Lashley could certainly expect something good around this match, in the future. In the meantime, we should let you know that a match against Brock Lesnar is one of the key things of Lashley’s contract with the WWE and he’s hell-bent on getting it.
In an update to previous reports, The Wrestling Observer confirmed that Brock Lesnar is not returning anytime soon which means The Dominator will have to wait a long time.
“Lesnar is not scheduled for this year’s SummerSlam show. One of the reasons he put over McIntyre so strongly was because he was not coming back any time soon. Heyman has not been brought to television since he was let go as head of RAW creative.”
