If you’re one of many professional wrestling fans frustrated by Brock Lesnar’s WWE status while he holds the Universal Title, things just got worse.
Initially it was expected that “The Beast” would return at SummerSlam later this year to defend his title. The expectation was that Lesnar would finally drop the strap to Roman Reigns before returning to the UFC and continuing his mixed martial arts (MMA) career.
Mike Johnson of PWInsider reports that Brock Lesnar is no longer working the SummerSlam pay-per-view (PPV). He also added we might not see Lesnar until later this year, which is ridiculous considering he’s the company’s top champion.
As for Lesnar’s MMA career, he has until today to re-enter the United States Anti-Doping Agency’s (USADA) testing pool. If he doesn’t re-enter by the end of tonight Lesnar will be ineligible to fight for the UFC for the remainder of the year. The promotion’s hope was to have him fight on their New Year’s Eve card.
