WWE Purposely Avoided Mentioning Brock Lesnar On Monday’s Raw

One of the motivating factors in bringing Lashley back to WWE was a possible match with Lesnar, as both men have histories as MMA fighters. Mike Johnson from PWInsider reported that we might not see Lesnar for a while so a SummerSlam match is not guaranteed.

After Brock Lesnar showed up at UFC 226 and threatened new UFC Heavyweight Champion Daniel Cormier, many thought he may never return to WWE again.

Well, the heels have now been picked up.

According to the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, that was a purposeful omission that came from the mind of Vince McMahon.

However, his agent and uncle Jair Mina has refuted the claims in English press that he's closing in on a move to Merseyside. We're going to see what the situation is with the club, but we don't have any information [regarding a move].

Rousey is now preparing for Extreme Rules where she will be part of the RAW Women's Championship Match between title-holder Alexa Bliss and Nia Jax.

Brock's UFC appearance got some major media attention, but WWE made no mention of Lesnar this week on Raw. At Extreme Rules on Sunday, Roman Reigns and Bobby Lashley will face-off, and there's some thought that the victor of that match could go on to face Lesnar. It is now believed that was done on objective and to keep the focus on Extreme Rules and its build-up.

Furthermore, Meltzer claimed that McMahon wants to create the idea that the Universal Champion has walked out, is going to the UFC, turned his back on the WWE fans, isn't coming back to drop the title and is holding up the belt.

Over the next couple of weeks as WWE sets itself up for SummerSlam and beyond, the Universal Championship picture could change for the first time in over a year. After all, should Lesnar defeat Cormier, there would be a goldmine in being able to promote Lesnar as both the WWE Universal Champion and UFC Heavyweight Champion, simultaneously. The only thing now will be to have the fans not cheer Lesnar's return but have them on the side of Reigns, and that simply hasn't worked out as Vince McMahon has hoped.
