Bruce Prichard explains the restrictions WWE placed on Brock Lesnar after his 2004 release


Whether it’s the UFC or WWE – there is literally no one who can match the sheer scale of “beast incarnate” Brock Lesnar in all of professional fighting and wrestling.
The eight-time world champion is Vince McMahon’s favorite legitimate star and money maker. But it wasn’t too nice between the company and Lesnar when the “Beast Incarnate” left WWE after his match against Goldberg at WrestleMania XX.

WWE didn’t allow Brock Lesnar to wrestle anywhere!

Speaking on his Something To Wrestle with Bruce Prichard podcast, Prichard revealed why WWE did not allow Brock Lesnar to work for another wrestling promotion. He also explained why WWE wanted to impose a restraining order on Brock Lesnar when he violated his appearance contract for NJPW.

“Yeah, because, again, we invested in his initial training and bringing him to the popularity where he was. Brock was unhappy, wanted to do something else. That’s good, there are other things you can try. However, we had invested in it in the sports entertainment category and we wanted to protect that, just strictly for business. H / t

Brock Lesnar continued to wrestle in NJPW and won the prestigious IWGP Heavyweight Championship. Lesnar’s last game in Japan was against TNA World Heavyweight Champion Kurt Angle. He lost the match champion against champion.

Lesnar’s return to WWE

The “Beast Incarnate” returned to WWE after a successful and dominant run in the UFC. Since his return, Vince seems to be harnessing the power of Lesnar more than ever. The Beast even beat The Undertaker’s 21-0 streak at WrestleMania XXX.

Brock Lesnar hasn’t been on WWE TV since Drew McIntyre dethroned him at WrestleMania 36 to become the WWE Champion. His contract with WWE expired earlier this summer, but we don’t expect him to sign elsewhere.

Why? It is only a matter of time before the crowds return to full capacity. Once we have that, Vince McMahon will definitely call out his favorite beast and “do what the heart says,” Brock will return. It’s a SPOILER!
