It was reported a few days ago that WWE’s merchandise department was told to no longer produce new merchandise items for Brock Lesnar, and to instead switch anything earmarked for Lesnar to Sheamus. After the initial report, WWE released a brief statement denying the story, claiming that there’s no truth to it at all.
In an update, apparently it was a licensing partner of WWE’s that was informed to no longer produce new Lesnar items. They were also reportedly told that any group-shot merchandise, which would include all of WWE’s top stars, should no longer feature Lesnar, and to replace him in anything of that nature with Sheamus.
According to those close to the situation, this is not necessarily an indication that Lesnar is leaving after WrestleMania 31. Instead, it’s believed that because Lesnar has yet to re-sign with the company, third-party companies were told not to produce anything new just to be on the safe side.
Apparently these companies were told this in regards to merchandise items that would be released after WrestleMania 31, which takes place on March 29, 2015.
