In today’s WWE 2K24 gameplay trailer, it was revealed that Brock Lesnar has been taken off the ’40 Years of WrestleMania’ cover.
This decision comes after Lesnar’s return to WWE TV at the 2024 Royal Rumble was canceled due to a sex trafficking lawsuit filed against Vince McMahon and WWE. It mentioned Lesnar, a former UFC/WWE Heavyweight Champion, was one of the individuals involved.
Originally, Lesnar was scheduled to participate in the men’s Royal Rumble match and be eliminated by Dominik Mysterio, setting up a match at the 2024 WWE Elimination Chamber pay-per-view event. However, Bron Breakker replaced Lesnar in the Royal Rumble.
As we previously here on eWn, Lesnar will be absent for a while, and some individuals within the company believe he may never return.
As per new gameplay footage uploaded by WWE today, Brock Lesnar has officially been removed from WWE2K24’s ‘40 Years of #WrestleMania’ showcase cover.
