Brock Lesnar has been out of the WWE television since winning his WrestleMania 32 match against Dean Ambrose. According to the latest WWE rumors, Lesnar already has a match set for WrestleMania 33 next year in Orlando, Florida.
In a report by the Daily Wrestling News, WWE chairman Vince McMahon is planning to have Brock Lesnar vs. The Rock as one of the main events on next year’s WrestleMania. It is noted that McMahon was very unhappy with the match Lesnar had against Ambrose at WrestleMania 32 in Dallas.
Word backstage says that McMahon felt that the big money he paid to The Beast to appear in this year’s Mania was wasted. The WWE chairman is reportedly not going to let it happen again when the Showcase of the Immortals goes back to Florida next year.

Daily Wrestling News also noted that there are no reports on when Lesnar will be back television, but he is expected to be back before SummerSlam to build up his feud with The Wyatt Family. According to the Wrestling Observer (h/t The Inquisitr), Lesnar is scheduled to work the WWE Live Event in Honolulu, Hawaii on June 29.
On the other hand, The Rock’s appearance at this year’s WrestleMania 32 also felt wasted as he did not wrestle a full match. There is also that he was not available to build it up due to scheduling conflicts.
The Rock is one of the most in-demand Hollywood actors at the moment and he will be filming a handful of films that could hinder his feud with Lesnar next year. Besides the movie commitments, there is also an insurance issue about The Rock who is risking injury when he wrestles.

Back in WrestleMania 29 against John Cena, The Rock suffered an injury that required surgery and delayed the production of his movie “Hercules.” Nonetheless, a match between The Rock and Brock Lesnar would be huge considering they are both larger than life personalities even outside the WWE.
The last time these faced each other was at SummerSlam 2002 when Lesnar defeated The Great One to become the youngest WWE champion in company history.
