News On Brock Lesnar's WWE Future

Source: Wrestling Observer Newsletter Brock Lesnar is reportedly in hot water with WWE management as a result of his recent appearance at UFC 146. Lesnar, who returned to WWE earlier this year and signed a one-year deal believed to be worth in the region of $5million, was ringside for UFC's recent Junior dos Santos vs. Frank Mir main event. The former UFC Heavyweight champion also met with UFC president Dana White after the pay-per-view, fuelling speculation of a return to the company before his WWE deal is up. White had also stated that fans know the difference between WWE and UFC and that he would not be averse to having a WWE-contracted performer fight inside the Octagon - something which WWE would almost certainly be against, even it was good for their own business. Lesnar is scheduled to headline WWE's Summerslam pay-per-view against Triple H, and at time of writing their bout will go ahead, with Triple H expected to appear at the No Way Out PPV later this month to keep the storyline going. But that storyline has not been mentioned on WWE programming over the past fortnight, and according to the Wrestling Observer, there has been no mention of Brock - and no further appearances from Paul Heyman - due to his UFC appearance and the meeting with White. While most in WWE expect Lesnar to still be with the company for Summerslam, some believe he will be gone before next year's WrestleMania event, where he is pencilled in to be in one of the main event matches, with The Rock and The Undertaker discussed as possible opponents. And according to Wednesday's report, Lesnar at time of writing is not scheduled to be involved in any WWE matches between Summerslam and WrestleMania. Although plans in WWE can - and usually do - change, right now, the 34-year-old will not be involved at Survivor Series or the 2013 Royal Rumble.
