Once again, Universal Champion Brock Lesnar has an uncertain future with the WWE, and nobody knows if he'll stick around once he makes the long anticipated return to the UFC.
There have been different reports coming out over the past few months, with some suggesting he'll leave the WWE for good, while others suggest he'll continue to wrestle while also doing fights for UFC.
But according to Ringside News, Fox - who will start broadcasting SmackDown Live in October - dropped a potential hint about Lesnar's future. During the NASCAR broadcast, Lesnar's name was brought up as a wrestler who will show up at the SmackDown broadcasts.
This is an interesting development, as it was reported earlier last week that Lesnar was among the many big superstars who wasn't being advertised for the SummerSlam pay-per-view in August. But the fact that he's being promoted for SmackDown in October will raise a lot of eyebrows and have people wondering what the future really holds for Lesnar.
Heading into WrestleMania 34 last year, it was rumored that Lesnar was going to drop the Universal Championship to Roman Reigns and then leave the WWE for good. But the next day, Lesnar signed a new contract and would retain the title up until SummerSlam, before losing it to Reigns on and for all.
Reigns had to relinquish the title in October after revealing that he was battling Leukemia, and Lesnar would defeat Braun Strowman to win the vacant championship at the Crown Jewel pay-per-view. He has only defended the title a handful of times since, but if Lesnar retains it over Seth Rollins at WrestleMania 35, one has to think WWE is still planning to keep him around for the long run.
What This Means
It's obviously difficult to guess what WWE has in store for Lesnar here. He signed a new contract with WWE amid rumors that Lesnar was leaving. So we just have to wait and see how things play out, but WrestleMania should offer a hint as to whether or not he stays on in 2019.
