Did Brock Lesnar Leave WWE?

Brock Lesnar has not been seen on WWE television for a while and rumors are swirling that he has left the company. Let’s take a look at the facts and see if there is any truth to these rumors.


Brock Lesnar is an American professional wrestler and former mixed martial artist, currently signed to WWE. He is a four-time WWE World Heavyweight Champion, a UFC Heavyweight Champion, and a one-time NCAA Division I Heavyweight Wrestling Champion. He has headlined multiple pay-per-view events for WWE, including WrestleMania XIX and SummerSlam (2002).

Brock Lesnar’s Early Life and Career

Brock Lesnar was born on July 12, 1977, in Webster, South Dakota. He was a standout amateur wrestler in high school and college, winning the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) heavyweight wrestling championship as a senior at the University of Minnesota in 2000. After his collegiate career ended, Lesnar pursued a career in professional wrestling.

In 2000, Lesnar signed a contract with the World Wrestling Federation (WWF, now WWE), and he made his televised debut that October. The 6-foot-3 (1.91-meter), 285-pound (129-kilogram) rookie quickly began to dominate the competition, and by 2002 he had captured the WWE Championship—becoming, at age 25, the youngest person ever to hold that title.

Brock Lesnar in the WWE

Brock Lesnar is one of the most decorated wrestlers in WWE history. He is a former WWE Champion, Universal Champion, and Royal Rumble winner. Lesnar has held the title for a combined 1,491 days, which is the sixth-most in WWE history. He is also the only person to have won both the WWE and UFC heavyweight championships.

However, Brock Lesnar’s WWE contract expired on August 31st, 2020 and he has not signed a new contract since then. Lesnar has been inactive on WWE television since WrestleMania 36 in April. In May, it was reported that Brock Lesnar had met with UFC President Dana White to discuss a return to the Octagon.

While it remains to be seen what Brock Lesnar’s next move will be, it seems unlikely that he will be returning to WWE anytime soon.

Brock Lesnar’s Departure from the WWE

On Monday, April 8th, 2019, it was announced that Brock Lesnar had decided to leave the WWE. Lesnar had been with the company since 2002, and had held the WWE Championship on multiple occasions. He is also a former UFC Heavyweight Champion, and is widely considered to be one of the most popular and successful athletes in professional wrestling history.

While it is not yet known what Lesnar’s plans are for the future, it is speculated that he may return to UFC. He has not fought in UFC since 2016, but has maintained a close relationship with the company. It is also possible that Lesnar could retire from professional competition altogether.

Whatever Lesnar’s plans may be, his departure from WWE will no doubt have a significant impact on the professional wrestling world. He was one of the most popular and dominant performers in WWE, and his absence will be felt by fans and wrestlers alike.

Brock Lesnar’s Return to the UFC

Brock Lesnar’s return to the UFC was first reported by FloCombat.com earlier this month, and UFC president Dana White all but confirmed the news Tuesday night on FS1’s “UFC Tonight.”

Lesnar, 40, last competed in MMA at UFC 200 in July 2016, when he defeated Mark Hunt via unanimous decision. However, that result was later changed to a no-contest after Lesnar failed multiple drug tests for the estrogen blocker clomiphene. Lesnar was suspended for one year and fined $250,000 by the Nevada Athletic Commission.

The WWE star had been under contract with the WWE since April 2012, but his deal expired after WrestleMania 34 in April. Lesnar then re-signed with the WWE in August, but his new contract reportedly included several dates where he could compete in the UFC.

FloCombat’s report said that Lesnar has already started the process of re-entering the USADA drug testing pool and is now eligible to fight again in January 2019.


As of right now, it does not appear that Brock Lesnar has left WWE. He is still listed as an active member of the roster on WWE.com, and there has been no indication from WWE that he is no longer with the company. However, it is worth noting that Lesnar has not been seen on WWE programming since WrestleMania 34 in early April, and he has not been announced for any upcoming shows. Lesnar’s deal with WWE is believed to be up in August, so it’s possible that he could leave the company at that time.
