Brock Lesnar's name has been all over the internet since missing a pre-advertised Raw appearance on Monday night, and today's Wrestling Observe Newsletter includes a big update on his future.

According to Dave Meltzer, sources close to the Universal Champion believe that he is UFC bound, and that his WrestleMania 34 main event against Roman Reigns could be his final WWE match.

The report also clarifies the circumstances surrounding the Raw situation. As per the write-up, Lesnar was set to travel to Anaheim for the show, but creative changed their minds at the 11th hour, meaning they had to rewrite a planned in-ring confrontation between him and Reigns.

To add further fuel to the fire, SI.com are reporting that Brock has already fulfilled his contractually obliged WWE dates, and is more interested in negotiating his next career move than "being a team player on his prior deal."

Lesnar will be 41 this summer, and is still suspended by USADA after failing a drug test in June 2016, and dropping out of the testing pool soon after. This'll leave him on the shelf for a few months if he does leave WWE, but it's now or never for his MMA career.
