In the past, Lesnar has used the same tactic when working on a new contract. Lesnar and WWE are working on a new deal, but nothing has officially been signed.
PWInsider added the following.
“While the two sides have been working on a new deal, they have hit an impasse and have paused discussions. his leaves Lesnar on the open market where he could, if he desires, field offers from outside WWE; whether it be AEW or other wrestling promotions, UFC, or even outside endeavors beyond combat sports.”
There is always the possibly AEW would be interested, but it would not be cheap. Although, AEW’s Chris Jericho and Lesnar have some backstage tension.
The UFC is always open to brining Lesnar back. Besides a few fighters, Lesnar remains one of the biggest pay per view draws.

Brock Lesnar will end up coming back to WWE. There’s no need for him in the ThunderDome. Won’t be surprised if he’s the first person you see during the first time back in front of a crowd.
