Brock Lesnar WWE: “I actually retired when COVID hit”

Last updated

WWE Champion and WrestleMania 38 main eventer Brock Lesnar recently revealed that he had actually retired from WWE before returning in 2021.

Speaking on the Michael Kay Show, Lesnar revealed that he had actually retired following his match against Drew McIntyre at WrestleMania 36.

“I actually retired when COVID hit and my contract was up in 2020. Full circle Brock Lesnar story, I had my first wrestling match in Minnesota was in a garage with no people” Lesnar revealed.

“20 years later, had a WWE Title match at WrestleMania in a warehouse in front of no people. 20 years, full circle. I was like ’˜I’m out'” Brock added.

There’s no telling if Brock Lesnar will retire following his Championship Unification match at WrestleMania 38.

It would be a massive shame if Brock were to retire now, as he is arguably in the best run of his entire pro wrestling career.
