Report: WWE Planning To Demote Lesnar Ahead Of Brock’s UFC Return

Rumors have been swirling that former UFC heavyweight champion Brock Lesnar is considering an octagon return. With that in mind, a new rumor suggests that the WWE is planning for the superstar’s potential departure.

Brock Lesnar has not competed inside the octagon since failing his drug test for UFC 200. Lesnar suffered a one year suspension for the incident, spending the time back under the banner of the WWE.

With the former champion’s suspension now over and Lesnar’s contract with the WWE rumored to be coming to a close, it would appear that the mixed martial arts phenom may soon be making a return to the octagon. A new rumor reported by Middle Easy suggests that the WWE is preparing for Lesnar’s potential leave.

Here is the original report:

“Rumors point to the WWE already preparing for Brock Lesnar leaving pro wrestling. It now looks like Lesnar may be out of the WrestleMania main event and bumped lower on the card. The WWE may even be working on back-up plans for the off chance Lesnar does not show-up for his scheduled dates.”
