Brock Lesnar 'in talks' for WWE return as Vince McMahon plots huge SummerSlam for return of fans to pay-per-views
BROCK LESNAR has reportedly been in talks with WWE over a return as Vince McMahon continues to plan a blockbuster SummerSlam event.
The legendary heavyweight has ruled in both the ring and octagon during his iconic career holding WWE and UFC’s world titles.
The icon last appeared on television back at WrestleMania 36 in March 2020 when he lost the WWE title to Drew McIntyre.
Lesnar, 43, is currently a free agent after his contract with McMahon expired.
Due to the large pay packet the ‘Beast Incarnate’ demands, no extension was struck between the two parties while WWE suffered the hit of performing in front of no fans throughout the Covid-19 pandemic.
But the world’s largest wrestling company recently announced that they are welcoming the WWE Universe back from next month and they will be ringside for the upcoming Money In The Bank pay-per-view.
That will be followed by SummerSlam in August – and billionaire McMahon is looking to put together a WrestleMania-level extravaganza.
It has been widely-reported that John Cena will make his return to the ring to battle Universal Champion Roman Reigns while Edge is set for a first-time ever showdown with Seth Rollins.
Now it seems Lesnar could also be performing at the Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Fightful states that discussions between the superstar and WWE have already begun with the company hopeful his comeback will be imminent.

Andrew Zarian of the Mat Men Podcast also tweeted out a gif of Lesnar and captioned it with: “Soon.”
The veteran has commanded big bucks from McMahon’s WWE ever since he returned to the company in 2012.
But his merchandise was removed from WWE Shop after his deal lapsed last August.
Now many fans are hopeful that they will get to see the man who ended Undertaker’s WrestleMania streak back in action sooner rather than later.
