After some surprising gestures from Brock Lesnar after the man event of Summerslam 2022, many believed that he was hinting at his retirement. However, that’s not the case as WWE has since been advertising him for their Day 1 premium live event to kick things off in 2023. Besides, WWE’s Wrestlemania 39 poster is also heavily featuring the top superstar indicating that he will be a huge part of the event.
WWE will also return to Saudi Arabia on November 5th for their Crown Jewel premium live event. Brock Lesnar is WWE’s top attraction for these Saudi shows and since the beginning of WWE’s deal with the country in 2018, he has always worked these shows. So, the belief is that there won’t be any exception, the next time around.
Ringside News has recently offered an update regarding the situation as they were told by a tenured member of the creative team that WWE Hall of Famer Goldberg is not working the next Crown Jewel show in Saudi Arabia. However, the source informed that Brock Lesnar is “working” the event. They were unable to confirm who the Beast Incarnate will face in Saudi Arabia.
Brock Lesnar has had an interesting 2022, so far
As noted above, Brock Lesnar was last seen at SummerSlam in late July where he lost a title unification rematch to Roman Reigns in a Last Man Standing capacity. It took the entire Bloodline faction to put him down but he stole the show with his tractor spots. He also put Paul Heyman out of action for weeks with an F5 to his former Advocate through the announce table.
With Crown Jewel barely a month away on the WWE calendar, the rumor suggests that it’s just a matter of time before Brock Lesnar returns to WWE TV in time for the PLE to build things up. He already has had an eventful year in 2022 and his accomplishments are listed below,
– Won the WWE Championship twice.
– Won the Royal Rumble match for the 2nd time in his career.
– Competed in his first-ever Elimination Chamber match and won it to capture the WWE Championship.
– Main-evented WrestleMania in the biggest “Title Unification Winner Take All” bout in WWE history.
– Main-evented SummerSlam for a record 8th time.
– Competed in his first-ever Last Man Standing match.
