Brock Lesnar has not appeared on WWE television since the 2023 Summerslam PLE when he lost to Cody Rhodes. In regards to Lesnar’s status, Dave Meltzer of F4WOnline.com noted that he will be back on WWE television “very soon” and stated the following during Wrestling Observer Radio…
“Maybe next week. I would think that this would not be the week to have Brock Lesnar return, given that this might be one of the lower-rated shows, considering they went against the football game and the Emmy Awards.
So, if he’s going to return for the [Royal] Rumble next week would be the week. If he’s going to return shortly after, then it could be a couple of weeks later, but he’s going to be back. It’ll be interesting to see who he’s back… I mean, I would presume he’s in the Rumble, and I would presume that whatever angle he’s going to do will be shot in the Rumble itself.” (quote courtesy of WrestlingNews.co)
Lesnar is currently being advertised for WWE Wrestlemania 40.
