#5 Reason why WWE placed a 20-month ban on Brock Lesnar working for another promotion
While speaking on his podcast - Something to Wrestle - Bruce Prichard talked about the 20-month ban WWE had placed on Brock Lesnar working for another wrestling company after his release in 2004.
“Yeah, because again, we made the investment in training him initially and getting him to the popularity that he was at. Brock was unhappy, wanted to do other things. That’s fine, you can try other things. However, we had made the investment in him in the sports-entertainment category and wanted to protect that so, just strictly business.” (H/T Post Wrestling)
Brock Lesnar had chosen to leave WWE just 2 years after his debut. The reason behind his decision was the tough schedule and life on the road. Even though Brock Lesnar had received a major push almost instantly, even winning the WWE Championship at the age of 25, Lesnar was not happy with the company.
Brock Lesnar returned to WWE in 2012 and has been working on a limited schedule since then. Reports indicated that Brock Lesnar has not re-signed with WWE and is currently a free agent.
