Former world champion Brock Lesnar and Vince McMahon.

WWE Rumor Roundup – Top Superstar Accomplished With Company, Major Brock Lesnar Update Vince McMahon Allegedly Breaching Character Rule

Welcome to another edition of Sportskeeda Wrestling’s daily WWE Rumor Roundup. We’re starting today’s story collection with a name we haven’t seen since WrestleMania 38, Brock Lesnar.

The famous star is also no longer under contract, and we have all the updates on the status of the talent and the near future.

We finished our latest WWE Rumor Roundup with an interesting note regarding Vince McMahon’s rule that appears to have been broken while building the WrestleMania Backlash. On that note, here’s the hearsay report:


#1 Reason for WWE Announcing Brock Lesnar for WrestleMania Backlash

Brock Lesnar has not appeared on WWE TV since losing to Roman Reigns at WrestleMania 38. While the Beast Incarnate was originally announced for WrestleMania Backlash, it was revealed that the company had no plans to book Lesnar in the first place.

In the latest issue of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, Dave Meltzer reported that WWE had wrongly announced Brock Lesnar on the upcoming show because they didn’t want to spoil the outcome of their WrestleMania 38 match against Reigns. This is what was reported in WON:

It’s notable that WWE first announced Brock Lesnar, even though he was never supposed to be on the show. The explanation was that if they didn’t announce Lesnar, it would give people the idea that Lesnar didn’t win at ‘Mania.’ Anyway. It’s a direct false advertisement.”

Rumor has it that Brock Lesnar could be back in WWE programming by July, and Money in the Bank could be the event he finally resumes on screen.

Although there were no updates regarding his next opponent, Meltzer indicated that Lesnar could fall back into the feud with Reigns if the company did not have a reliable opponent lined up for the undisputed WWE Universal Champion.


#2. Candice LeRae is completed with the company after becoming an official free agent

As reported by Fightful Select, Candice LeRae is a free agent after her contract recently expired.

LeRae’s deal was expected to expire in the spring, and he stated that she showed no indications of re-signing with WWE. The 36-year-old star was added to WWE.com’s alumni division earlier today, and several sources within the company later confirmed her departure.

Candice hasn’t appeared in the promotion since she was on maternity leave a few months ago. As things stand, she is one of the best free agents currently in wrestling.

LeRae follows her husband, Johnny Gargano, into free agency, and it has been made clear that there are no “bad intentions” between the couple and the officials. Fightful added that the door was open for Gargano and LeRae to return to the company in the future if they so chose.

While there are no updates on where LeRae might head next, we’ve put together a list of opponents you’re likely to face in AEW, and you can check it out here.
