Brock Lesnar WWE Extreme Rules Rumor Revealed

Brock Lesnar not only dominated the squared circle but also the octagon cage. He  is a former UFC Heavyweight Champion. However, he hasn’t returned to MMA since his last fight against Mark Hunt at UFC 200. Daniel Cormier is also a former Heavyweight Champion in UFC, and is also said to be a lifelong WWE fan. ‘The Beast Incarnate’ had teased a return to UFC in 2018 when he had a confrontation with Daniel Cormier. While there were plans for the two to have a match in the UFC, Lesnar was reportedly the one who backed out. It’s also reported that Brock Lesnar won’t return at Extreme Rules to start a feud with Cormier.



Brock Lesnar was against facing Daniel Cormier

As per Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, Lesnar did not want to fight Daniel Cormier despite an angle being shot for it. Cormier will be coming to WWE as the special referee for Seth Rollins vs. Matt Riddle, but he may also have his own match down the road:

”The signing of Cormier immediately lead to the obvious speculation of facing Brock Lesnar. UFC attempted to make that fight at one point and even shot an angle for it. But Lesnar decided against doing it. In the angle, Lesnar got in the cage and shoved Cormier hard. In reality, Lesnar and Cormier are friends, but Cormier understood that Lesnar was trying to build up business at that time,” said Meltzer.

Fans have been speculating a lot about a potential match between Cormier and Lesnar. Meltzer had earlier stated that there is a chance that WWE will try to have Cormier have a match against Lesnar at WrestleMania, given their history. However, DC has said that there are no such plans as of now:

“No, I haven’t heard anything about that. It seems to make a lot of sense but, as you know, just because something makes sense doesn’t mean that it’s going to happen. So, no, there is no talk of me fighting Brock Lesnar.”
