Triple H: Brock Lesnar Is Not Gone From WWE, He's Just At Home Being Brock

Triple H addresses Brock Lesnar's WWE status

Brock Lesnar was implicated, but not outright named, in a lawsuit brought forth by Janel Grant against Vince McMahon and WWE in January. The lawsuit alleges that Vince McMahon used Ms. Grant in a sexual manner to keep "a world-famous athlete and former UFC Heavyweight Champion with whom WWE was actively trying to sign to a new contract."

Lesnar was reportedly pulled from creative plans after the lawsuit was filed.

Speaking at the WWE WrestleMania XL press conference, Triple H was asked about Lesnar's status.

"At one point, there was a conversation with Brock about Royal Rumble, quite a long time ago. Right now, Brock is at home being Brock. We'll see where that leads to from here. His status is the same as it has been before. Brock is not gone from WWE. He's just home being Brock," said Triple H.

It is unknown if or when Lesnar will return to WWE television.

He was removed from the Paul Heyman Hall of Fame induction video, but was mentioned by Heyman.
