Brock Lesnar: The Ultimate Free Agent in WWE
— WWE on BT Sport (@btsportwwe) May 2, 2023
Brock Lesnar is a name that strikes fear and awe in the hearts of wrestling fans around the world. The former UFC Heavyweight Champion, NCAA Division I Wrestling Champion, and 10-time WWE World Champion is one of the most dominant and decorated athletes in the history of combat sports . But what makes him even more unique and valuable is his status as a free agent in WWE.
Lesnar has been able to negotiate his free agent status since 2021, thanks to his advocate Paul Heyman. This means that he can appear on both RAW and SmackDown brands, and challenge for any title he wants, without being bound by the restrictions of the WWE Draft. He is the only superstar in WWE who has this privilege, and he has used it to his advantage.
Lesnar’s free agent status was confirmed by Triple H on the second and final day of the WWE Draft 2023, when he announced that Lesnar had successfully renegotiated his contract and was removed from the list of available superstars. This came as a shock to many fans and wrestlers, who were expecting Lesnar to be drafted to either brand.
Lesnar has faced some of the biggest names in WWE across both brands, such as Roman Reigns, Bobby Lashley, Omos, Cody Rhodes, Bray Wyatt, and Luke Harper . He has also been involved in some of the most memorable matches and moments in recent WWE history, such as breaking The Undertaker’s WrestleMania streak, defeating Goldberg at WrestleMania 33, winning the Money in the Bank briefcase in 2019, and taking Omos to Suplex City at WrestleMania 39 .
Lesnar’s free agent status gives him the freedom to choose his own opponents and opportunities, and also gives WWE the flexibility to book him in any storyline they want. He is a ratings draw, a pay-per-view attraction, and a merchandise seller. He is also a rare attraction who only appears on special occasions, making his appearances more impactful and exciting.
Lesnar’s current contract with WWE is reportedly coming to an end soon, and it is unclear if he will renew it or not. If he does, he will likely demand to keep his free agent status, as it gives him more power and leverage over WWE. If he doesn’t, he will leave a huge void in WWE’s roster that will be hard to fill.
Brock Lesnar is the ultimate free agent in WWE, and he knows it. He is a beast who cannot be tamed or controlled by anyone. He is a conqueror who can go wherever he wants and do whatever he wants. He is an anomaly who defies all expectations and conventions. He is Brock Lesnar.
