In an unexpected twist, WWE Universal champion Brock Lesnar successfully defended his title against Roman Reigns at Wrestlemania 34 on Sunday night at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans, Louisiana.

Both superstars were headlining the provider’s flagship series of this year and most were anticipating Lesnar to drop his name to Reigns as rumors of a UFC yield for the prior were heating up at the build-up into the function.

But it had been the 40-year-old who succeeded to some large ovation because he took six F5s to conquer bloodied Reigns with several now questioning if he’ll go back to the vegas promotion.


Lesnar’s WWE contract has been allegedly expiring after the series and also UFC President Dana White posting an image of these back in February, it appeared a formality that the former heavyweight champion will go back into mixed martial arts (MMA) actions.

Although it’s still a chance that Lesnar would go back to the UFC, he especially used rumors of moving back in 2015 to negotiate a more lucrative deal to stay with the WWE, which could be the case that time given his triumph over Reigns. Additional information on Lesnar’s potential will gradually be shown through “Monday Night RAW.”

The prior cash-cow of this UFC, Lesnar returned following a five-year hiatus to get a one-off battle against Mark Hunt in UFC 200 in July 2016 within an event which went on to create 1,009,000 pay-per-view purchases.

On the other hand, the Minnesota native tested positive for two banned substances leading to his triumph becoming overturned and him getting a two-wheeled suspension.

If he’s to fight at the Octagon, Lesnar would need to serve the remaining months at the USADA pool following his one-year suspension was suspended when he retired from MMA this past year.

“I believe Conor [McGregor] called it, ‘Red Panty Night’,” Cormier said in a media conference last week since he disclosed his desire to confront Lesnar. “When you select a card with Brock Lesnar or struggle, Brock Lesnar, it is like ‘Green Panty Night,’ because it is raining cash. When you struggle Brock, you are getting paid.”
