Apparently Brock Lesnar competing at this year’s WWE SummerSlam pay-per-view event at the Barclays Center in August isn’t a guarantee just yet.
According to Laz Benitez of the New York State Athletic Commission, Lesnar will need to be cleared by the commission after his UFC 200 fight with Mark Hunt on July 9th in Las Vegas, Nevada before he can legally participate in a pro wrestling match for WWE at their SummerSlam pay-per-view on August 21st in Brooklyn, New York.
Benitez issued the following statement regarding Lesnar to The Fight Network:
“Potential participation by Mr. Lesnar in an August WWE event would depend on his medical fitness and physical condition at the time of the professional wrestling show. No person is allowed to participate in a professional wrestling exhibition in New York State until he or she is cleared as medically fit to do so by a New York State licensed physician.”
