Brock Lesnar is back in WWE again in the latest segment of SummerSlam, the biggest pay-per-view of the summer, staged in Las Vegas on August 21. The former Universal champion made his appearance at the end of the main event between Roman Reigns and John Cena, ending an absence that lasted over a year.
The last appearance of the Beast was in fact in WrestleMania 36, when he was defeated by Drew McIntyre and then became a free agent a few months later. Brock wanted to challenge the 'Tribal Chief' and it is likely that the showdown between the two will take place at Crown Jewel or at the Survivor Series.
During the last edition of WWE Talking Smack, Big E was asked to comment on Lesnar's return and his new look. In fact, the former UFC athlete showed up with much longer hair than usual, generating mixed reactions among fans and insiders.
Big E said about Brock Lesnar: "Well, the hair was definitely his choice. I personally don't have Brock Lesnar's money. At some point, you reach a level of wealth where you only do things because you are bored. I don't know that level of wealth, of course."
He then added: "I can only congratulate Brock, he is still a huge impact wrestler who knows how to entertain the WWE Universe." Lesnar established himself as an absolute champion during his first WWE stint between 2002 and 2004.
Due to the frantic schedule that the company imposes on its athletes, Brock left the federation soon after WrestleMania XX. After the brief spells in New Japan Pro Wrestling and in the UFC - where he also became world champion - The Beast Incarnate returned to Vince McMahon in 2012.
The WWE boss has always treated Lesnar very well, filling him with money and giving him a schedule much lighter than most of its peers.
