Brock Lesnar’s absence from WWE programming is primarily attributed to his ongoing legal situation, as reported by Dave Meltzer in the Wrestling Observer. Until Lesnar is cleared by WWE legal, his return to the ring remains uncertain. The delay stems from the legal battle involving Janel Grant, who has accused WWE and Vince McMahon of directing her to create explicit content for a WWE superstar.

Grant’s decision to postpone the lawsuit at the request of the U.S. Department of Justice suggests prolonged legal complexities for McMahon and WWE. This delay in legal proceedings directly affects Lesnar’s potential comeback, pushing any return indefinitely into the future.

The lawsuit, although not explicitly naming Lesnar, implicates a WWE superstar who is also a UFC fighter, aligning with Lesnar’s profile. Allegations against McMahon include sharing explicit content with the wrestler and facilitating inappropriate communication with Grant, further complicating the legal landscape for WWE.

Lesnar’s removal from WWE promotional materials, vignettes, and even video games like WWE 2K24 indicates the severity of the situation. His planned matches, including WrestleMania 40 and Elimination Chamber, were canceled amidst the controversy surrounding the lawsuit and allegations.

Despite being under a WWE contract, Lesnar’s status remains in limbo until the legal issues are resolved. The absence of a clear timeline for his return underscores the significant impact legal battles can have on professional wrestling careers, highlighting the complexities of managing both legal and public relations challenges in the industry.
