Report: No Creative Plans For Brock Lesnar At WWE SummerSlam 2021

It's reported The Beast won't be in Las Vegas

Brock Lesnar will reportedly not feature at WWE SummerSlam 2021 due to his involvement not fitting with current creative plans. 

Lesnar has not been seen on WWE television since WrestleMania 36, when he dropped the WWE Championship to Drew McIntyre in the main event, but reports have circulated that The Beast could be set for a comeback to coincide with the promotion's return to live shows and a full touring schedule.

With SummerSlam this year reportedly set to feature some of the biggest names in the company's history, including the likes of John Cena and Edge, there had been expectation that Lesnar could be involved in some capacity.

However, Andrew Zarian of the Mat Men Podcast says that WWE have decided that Lesnar is not needed for SummerSlam. The two sides are reportedly working on a deal that will see him return to WWE sooner rather than later, with Vince McMahon wanting the 43-year-old to also work live events upon his return.

Zarian said: "They wanted Brock. For whatever reason, the plan didn’t work out. I believe it was creative-wise, it just wasn’t fitting.

"Financially, they want Brock to commit to live shows. They are working it out, it’s gonna happen. It’s not that it’s not gonna happen, it’s gonna happen unless something goes tremendously terrible, which I don’t think it will. I think we’re gonna see Brock, I just don’t think he’s needed for SummerSlam if they have this planned out already.

"If Brock calls them and says ‘Hey, I wanna do it’ then yeah, they’re gonna figure it out. I don’t believe Brock’s gonna be on there…I don’t know about Brock right now. I know that he’s in the plans. They’re gonna do something with him, I just don’t know what yet."
