Report: Brock Lesnar Focusing On UFC Return; WWE Door Still Open

Brock Lesnar's loss at SummerSlam to Roman Reigns ended his Universal Title reign and seemingly allowed him to move on.

PWInsider's Mike Johnson reports that Lesnar is currently focused on his UFC return in early 2019. Lesnar appeared at UFC 226 in July, entering the cage following Daniel Cormier's victory in the main event. The post-fight kerfuffle set the stage for a money fight next year, when Brock has finished serving the final six months of his USADA suspension. Lesnar re-entered the USADA testing pool in July, making him eligible to fight in January 2019.

While Lesnar begins preparing for another trip inside the Octagon, Johnson reports that "the door is open" for Brock to return to WWE. 

Lesnar was advertised by the Barclays Center to appear on the Raw after SummerSlam back in July.

The former Universal Champion was noticeably absent on Raw. Paul Heyman appeared in a backstage segment with Kurt Angle, asking for Lesnar's re-match, which was denied. Lesnar reportedly flew home after SummerSlam and was never scheduled for the event, despite being advertised.
