Brock Lesnar is on course to reach a scarcely believable milestone before he steps into the ring against Roman Reigns at SummerSlam.
After Brock Lesnar returned to WWE in 2012, his schedule has become almost the stuff of legend. For the last decade the star has been far removed from being considered a “full-time performer,’ something which has split WWE’s fanbase.
While some believe that having one of WWE’s top stars only appearing sparingly adds to his mystique, others feel he is doing little to earn his huge salary while caring even less about the industry.
Brock Lesnar made his latest return on the June 17th episode of SmackDown where he confronted Undisputed WWE Universal Champion Roman Reigns. The champion had successfully defended his beloved title against Riddle just moments before. The stare-down was Lesnar’s first appearance on WWE programming since being defeated by Reigns at WrestleMania 38.
It has since been announced that Reigns and Lesnar will meet at SummerSlam in a Last Man Standing Match.
After missing Money In The Bank, along with Reigns, Lesnar’s schedule has come to the fore once again. As has an incredible statistic.
It has been noted by Sportskeeda, that Lesnar hasn’t wrestled on an episode of Monday Night Raw in almost two decades. The Beast’s last match on the red brand came on July 22nd 2002, where he defeated Tommy Dreamer in a Singapore Cane Match.
Of the Superstars on the show, only Lesnar still wrestles in WWE.
After his match against Dreamer, Lesnar moved to SmackDown as part of the first-ever brand extension, before becoming WWE Undisputed Champion with a win over The Rock at SummerSlam a month later.
