Don’t expect to see Brock Lesnar on WWE television in the near future.

There are so many rumors swirling about who Drew McIntyre could face at WWE SummerSlam 2020, and it looks like Randy Orton is the most likely option for the current WWE Champion.

McIntyre won the title at WrestleMania 36, defeating Brock Lesnar to become the Red Brand’s new top male star. He’s held the championship with aplomb since, defeating Seth Rollins and Bobby Lashley in strong Pay Per View matches with Dolph Ziggler up next at Extreme Rules.

But McIntyre probably won’t get a second match with Lesnar, as Seth Rollins did in 2019, at SummerSlam or any time soon, for that matter.

According to Tom Colohue on the Dropkick DiSKussions podcast with Korey Gunz, via Sportskeeda’s Lennard Surrao, WWE “really don’t want” Lesnar to show up and wrestle or be in segments at the Performance Center.

The reason makes a ton of sense, to be honest. Colohue says that WWE portray Lesnar as a “larger than life” figure, hence all his wins and the whole “Beast Incarnate” nickname. He is their special attraction, and Vince McMahon pays him handsomely to be that kind of personality for the company.

So when Lesnar shows up at the Performance Center without the crowd, as he’s done at WrestleMania and other times in the McIntyre feud, he doesn’t get that polarizing reaction that makes him seem like a controversial, larger-than-life superstar in WWE.

The less people working at the Performance Center, the better. And since Lesnar is that sort of special attraction, it’s better if he spends more time away from the screen anyway. In the meantime, WWE can still find great opponents for McIntyre and find ways to continue to build stars without Lesnar around.

Next. Randy Orton could win another world title soon. dark

As for Lesnar, he probably appreciates the time off and away from the risk of performing during the pandemic. There will be time for him to add to his legacy in professional wrestling.
