WWE Universal Champion Brock Lesnar will not be defending his title the Money in the Bank event. Dave Meltzer revealed on the latest episode of Wrestling Observer Radio that Lesnar is not working the upcoming co-branded PPV and will likely not return to the ring until July or at SummerSlam.
"Lesnar is not wrestling at the Money In The Bank pay-per-view for what it’s worth. I don’t know when he’s going to wrestle again. I thought it would make sense after the Greatest Royal Rumble because obviously, he’s going to wrestle again that [MITB] would be the show but in fact it’s not the show."
"So he’s doing another show. He might have agreed to do a deal until SummerSlam. Or maybe the July show, but he’s not on this one."
