WWE Raw: Reigns calls out Lesnar, Rousey demands an apology

Brock Lesnar

For the better part of a year, WWE has been building to Brock Lesnar defending his Universal Championship at WrestleMania 34. White responded saying that the odds of Lesnar returning to the company were "very, very, very good".

Reigns then let loose and shared his true feelings for Lesnar, noting that his comments would get him in trouble with the higher ups backstage. WWE did not punish Lesnar and stated that their wellness program does not apply to part-time talent.

Prior to this fight, Lesnar hadn't competed in five years when he lost to Alistair Overeem in the main event of UFC 141.

Brock Lesnar's time with the WWE appears to be coming to an end, making his return to the UFC all the more possible.

Lesnar will be 41 this summer, and is still suspended by USADA after failing a drug test in June 2016, and dropping out of the testing pool soon after.

It sounds like Brock Lesnar may be back in the UFC before much longer.

For now, Lesnar will nearly certainly continue to stoke the flames on a possible return to the UFC while he decides on his future to either come back to fighting for one more run or stick around with WWE for another long term stint. Say he signs with UFC the day after WrestleMania and re-enters the drug-testing program, he could be back in line for a fight as early as October, and there is a fight that could make him and UFC millions looming, with Jon Jones.

WrestleMania 34 is just 40 days away, and Lesnar is in nearly the same position he found himself in three years ago.

As noted, the face off between Lesnar and Reigns was in multiple scripts that were done for Monday's RAW, and WWE was still advertising Lesnar after RAW hit the air.

Harvick: "I can't go without asking because Brock Lesnar is a good friend of mine".

It had been promoted that the victor of that match would have a face-to-face confrontation with Lesnar and Paul Heyman on "Raw". Though, WWE is said to have a backup plan in the form of Reigns taking on Braun Strowman (a matchup we've seen way too many times).
