Brock Lesnar, hailed as one of the most versatile athletes in the history of combat and entertainment sports, has been a key asset to WWE for years. Following his last match against Cody Rhodes at SummerSlam in 2023, Lesnar has been absent from in-ring appearances. However, he almost made a WWE Superstar retire for good after an outburst in the ring.

Brock Lesnar has attained multiple notable milestones in his WWE career, driven by his ruthless aggression and larger-than-life personality. He is called The Beast Incarnate and that is more accurate than most nicknames for pro wrestlers, as he was truly a beast in the ring, with a commanding presence whenever he competed.

Austin Theory is familiar with Brock Lesnar, having crossed paths with The Beast Incarnate multiple times in the promotion. The emerging star has even experienced one of the most intimidating F5s in the company’s history, delivered from the top of a Chamber pod.


While speaking in an interview with The West Sport, Austin Theory discussed the perilous moment during WWE Elimination Chamber 2022, emphasizing the extreme danger of the event. Recounting his experience, he highlighted a particularly hazardous incident where, during his first Elimination Chamber for the WWE Championship, he was one of the last competitors remaining and faced Brock Lesnar. Theory recounted how he received an F5 off the top of the chamber, acknowledging the potential career-ending risk associated with such high-stakes encounters.

“To be honest, there’s nothing more dangerous in the WWE than the Elimination Chamber. And, I think I’m the perfect man to answer that question. If you take it back to my first Elimination Chamber for the WWE Championship, I was one of the last competitors left in there. But, I was with Brock Lesnar and I got F5’d off the top of the chamber. And, I could’ve nearly ended my career there.”

Presently, Austin Theory is partnering with Grayson Waller on Friday Night SmackDown. They recently competed inside the squared circle against Cody Rhodes and Seth Rollins at WWE Elimination Chamber 2024, which took place last weekend in Perth, Australia.

WWE Hall Of Famer Believes Brock Lesnar’s Return Is Unlikely After Vince McMahon’s Trafficking Scandal

While speaking on his 83 Weeks podcast, WWE Hall of Famer Eric Bischoff discussed Brock Lesnar’s future in WWE after many believed he was involved in Vince McMahon’s lawsuit. Bischoff stated that he believes Brock Lesnar lacks motivation to return to wrestling and would prefer to focus on his farm


The WWE Hall of Famer mentioned Brock Lesnar’s financial stability and suggested that Lesnar, while not necessarily driven by a passion for the business, is likely to compete again for a substantial payday.

I don’t think he’s (Brock Lesnar) motivated to be a public person or is going to try to reclaim his fame, if you will, for lack of a better term. And he’s got enough money, he doesn’t need it.”

“Obviously, he was going to get back involved in the business again but if you can put five or seven or eight million dollars in your bank account after putting in a couple days work, who’s not going to do that? 

According to Eric Bischoff, Brock Lesnar’s main objective is to accumulate wealth and invest in his farming ventures rather than trying to revive his wrestling career.

”If you’re physically capable of doing it, whether you love the business or not, if you’re smart, you’ll do it. Stack that cash, go buy another farm, go buy another one of those $700,000 John Deere tractors or whatever they are, plant more potatoes or soybeans or whatever it is you do on your farm. That’s what I would think Brock’s going to do. I don’t think there’s any motivation on his part to try to resurrect his career.”

Fans might just have to accept the fact that Brock Lesnar will not be making his comeback to WWE television ever again after his implication in Vince McMahon’s lawsuit. Nonetheless, we will have to wait and see what Brock Lesnar will do next.
