Fans stunned by new Brock Lesnar look ahead of possible WWE return
Brock Lesnar hasn’t been seen in WWE since WrestleMania 36 all the way back in April 2020.
One thing that’s changed since The Beast Incarnate has been gone is his hair cut.
Like a prime Paul Heyman, Lesnar is rocking a short ponytail these days as displayed by an upcoming appearance on a YouTube culinary show.
Seth & Scott Perkins, the brothers known as the Bearded Butchers, posted photos on Twitter and informed that the Lesnar episode would soon drop on their YouTube channel.
The brothers wrote: “Brock Lesnar joins the Bearded Butchers! The bonds of butchering are what brought the Beast to spend a few days honing his butchering skills as we showcased techniques and tricks for this Viking. Full video coming to YouTube so stay tuned!!!”
Lesnar is known to be a keen hunter and when he’s not wrestling, he runs farms. He has homes in both Canada and South Dakota.
Brock has gone full viking with his goatee, sandy hair and ponytail on top. Quite the look.
He looks like he’s in great shape, too. The 44-year-old sports some pretty big arms during his visit.
Lesnar has reportedly held talks with WWE over a return, but according to Andre Zarian of the Mat Men Podcast, nothing was agreed as of mid-June.
WWE are expected to pull out all the stops for their big return to a full stadium show at SummerSlam. They are going to pack out the Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas and Lesnar has always been one of the company’s biggest draws.
The natural matchup in many eyes would be with Bobby Lashley, the man who currently holds the WWE title.
Despite both being gargantuan men with legit, impressive MMA backgrounds, Lashley and Lesnar have never faced each other in a wrestling ring.
Speaking to talkSPORT last month, Lashley said he believed SummerSlam was his best chance at facing Brock.
“It could be, it could be,” Lashley replied when asked about Lesnar at SummerSlam. “You never know. Normally when he comes back it’s for a reason and it’s that big, shiny gold belt.
“Right now, I have it. If there is a chance, if there was a time he’d want to come back, it would be the perfect time. And I’m always ready. Is this the time though? We don’t know.”
