Brock Lesnar has been one of the top stars in the professional wrestling business for decades now, and he’s currently on a collision course with Roman Reigns.
The Beast Incarnate last competed on the Grandest Stage of Them All when he dropped the WWE Championship to Drew McIntyre at WrestleMania 36, and during an appearance on The Michael Kay Show he explained that at the time he considered that to be the last match of his career.
“When I was younger I thought ‘ah, I’ll want to retire when I’m 40.’ I actually retired when COVID hit and my contract was up in 2020, I think. So full circle Brock Lesnar story; I had my first pro wrestling match in Hamel, Minnesota in a garage in front of no people. And 20 years later, in the WWE Heavyweight Champion of the world, had my last wrestling match in a warehouse in front of no people. So 20 years, full cycle, full revolution. And I’m like ‘alright, cool, I’m out.’”
Brock made his surprise return at the SummerSlam pay-per-view last year, and he’s been feuding with Roman Reigns ever since. When asked why he came out of retirement Lesnar simply said, “Cha-Ching.”
Universal Champion Roman Reigns and WWE Champion Brock Lesnar will face off in a Title vs. Title match at WrestleMania 38 on Sunday, April 3rd. Stay tuned for more updates as they become available.
