Update on Brock Lesnar’s status with WWE heading into Wrestlemania 40 amidst potential return rumors

It’s believed that Brock Lesnar did not appear in the 2024 men’s WWE Royal Rumble match because of his name being associated with the Vince McMahon sex trafficking lawsuit and McMahon’s resignation. WWE reportedly canceled plans to use Lesnar moving forward.

Earlier this week, Bryan Alvarez of F4WOnline.com stated that “there have been moves” to potentially bring back Lesnar. In regards to the rumors surrounding Lesnar in the fallout of the McMahon lawsuit, Dave Meltzer noted the following…

“There was something behind the scenes this week that was done, the details of which were told to us off the record, that indicated a less hard line about Lesnar, whose plans, which included an IC title match with Gunther at Wrestlemania after a Royal Rumble return, were dropped when the lawsuit went public. However, one company source said that there was no movement at all right now to bring Lesnar back as a performer.”

A WWE source also told RingsideNews.com that “there is no change of circumstances on Brock Lesnar.”
