Lesnar's contract is now set to expire soon after WrestleMania, and there has been legitimate speculation that Lesnar could head back to UFC. He was about to headline WrestleMania in a title match with Reigns, and his WWE contract was set to expire shortly after the PPV. What viewers saw instead was his WrestleMania opponent Roman Reigns in the middle of ring, criticizing Lesnar for his absence on Raw.

WWE has yet to issue an official confirmation regarding Lesnar's future in the coming Wrestlemania 34.

After Ronda Rousey forced Raw Commissioner Stephanie McMahon to apologize for slapping her at WWE Elimination Chamber, Triple H laid out Raw General Manager Kurt Angle with a cheap shot that left The Olympic Hero laid out on the mat.

The current WWE Universal Champion still has more than six months to serve on a suspension after he officially un-retires from MMA, a ban that won't begin until after he re-enlists into USADA's random drug testing program.

Leaving WWE, with whom Lesnar has been under contract since 2012, seemed to be a more likely option last summer. Lesnar also has yet to voice any announcements regarding his stint on WWE or his rumored return to UFC. Do you think that Lesnar legitimately skipped out on the show as a negotiating tactic?

Neither Lesnar nor Heyman were in Anaheim last night, although they were advertised and a segment with both of them was written into the script of the show. It gives him even more leverage in negotiations with WWE, where he already works on a part-time schedule. It's all but guaranteed that Reigns will beat Lesnar and become the Universal Champion at the show, especially if Lesnar is on his way out the door for a return to the UFC.

Lesnar, of course, did make a brief return to the octagon, for UFC 200 in 2016, knocking out Mark Hunt, then getting slapped with a one-year suspension for testing positive for performance-enhancing drugs. The threat of Lesnar retaining the belt and taking it to another company could create even more buzz surrounding WWE's biggest match of the year.
