Superstar left WWE after PPV?
Brock Lesnar meets Roman Reigns in a Last Man Standing Match for the Undisputed WWE Universal Championship at SummerSlam. But will this be the last time he performs for the company?
WWE SummerSlam 2022 was in a bit of a bind after Randy Orton, Roman Reigns’ reported opponent for the event, was unable to compete due to back injury. So WWE went back to the well and planned for Reigns to face off against his rival Brock Lesnar. This time it would be a Last Man Standing match for the Undisputed WWE Universal Championship.
In the week leading up to the Premium Live Event, the Main Event appeared to be in jeopardy. After former chairman and CEO Vince McMahon announced his retirement, Lesnar reportedly left the TD Garden in Boston, Mass., the site of their weekly Friday night program SmackDown. But he returned in the final minutes of the showbeat up theory.
With the match still ongoing, some fans may be wondering if this will be the last time they see Lesnar in a WWE ring.

Will Brock Lesnar Leave WWE After SummerSlam?
As of this writing, there was no indication that this would be Lesnar’s final WWE appearance.
When McMahon’s announcement was made, Wrestling Observer’s Bryan Alvarez was reporting that Lesnar had left the building, with Fightful’s Sean Ross Sapp noting that the WWE and MMA star was “pissed”. Alvarez went on to say Lesnar said something along the lines of “when he’s gone, I’m gone.”
Apparently, WWE was able to get Lesnar to perform again at the end of the July 22 episode of SmackDown, and his SummerSlam match with Reigns was still ongoing. What’s interesting is that Lesnar vs. Reigns is advertised as the final time these two rivals will go head-to-head.
Again, we won’t know Lesnar’s status until SummerSlam is over. We’ll keep you posted when there’s news.
