Since returning to WWE in 2012, Brock Lesnar has exclusively worked part-time in the company.
The Beast is currently in his fifth reign as WWE champion after defeating Kofi Kingston in seven seconds. Brock has appeared at the last two pay-per-views, Crown Jewel and Survivor Series, having been embroiled in a feud with Cain Velasquez and Rey Mysterio respectively.
However, a report suggests The Conqueror will not appear again on WWE TV for the remainder of 2019. According to Dave Meltzer, Lesnar is now back on Hiatus and will not return until January when he is expected to build towards his feud at the Royal Rumble.
Writing in Wrestling Observer Newsletter, Meltzer penned: “Lesnar is back on hiatus until probably around January. His next show is the Rumble so he’ll be back when it comes to shoot his angle for that show.”
This has been common for The WWE champion over the past couple of years. After defeating AJ Styles at Survivor Series 2017, Lesnar did not compete again inside a WWE ring until the following year’s Royal Rumble when he retained the Universal Title in a Triple Threat match against Kane and Braun Strowman.
History then repeated itself in 2018. After he emerged victorious against Daniel Bryan, Lesnar did not wrestle again until the 2019 Royal Rumble where he defended his Universal title against Finn Balor.
