According to reports, Brock Lesnar will be taking some time off from the WWE, off the cusp of his epic match against “The American Nightmare” Cody Rhodes, at this past weekend’s 2023 SummerSlam Premium Live Event (PLE).
Brock Lesnar Stepping Away For A Bit
According to a recent report, The Best Incarnate is taking a hiatus from the WWE. After he lost his trilogy match to Cody Rhodes during the Biggest Part of the Summer, he’ll be gone for some time.
Wrestling Observer Radio’s Dave Meltzer stated recently that Lesnar was originally going to work WWE’s Fastlane PLE, scheduled for Saturday, October 7th. However, he notes that this is no longer the case.
Meltzer goes on to say that the former WWE Champion is set to take four months off from the WWE. This places him back in action in and around the 2023 Survivor Series season.
As one of WWE’s Big Four events, there’s a good chance he’ll participate in the PLE. Then again, he may decide to extend his hiatus to the new year and work the 2024 Royal Rumble.
It’s been confirmed that Lesnar will participate in next year’s WrestleMania 40. The two-day event takes place on Saturday, April 6th and 7th at the Lincoln Financial Field in Philadelphia, PA.
The Beast’s first WWE run lasted from 2000 to 2004. At the time, he was touted as the “Next Big Thing”.
He returned to the WWE in 2012 and truly solidified his legacy with the company. From breaking the Undertaker’s larger-than-life WrestleMania streak to becoming a multiple WWE Champion and so much more, Lesnar has “done it all” with the promotion over the past decade, working with a part-time schedule.
What will the Beast Incarnate do after his hiatus? Only time will tell.
