The reason why Brock Lesnar is working a WWE live event in Japan

As noted earlier on the site, WWE is advertising former WWE World Heavyweight Champion Brock Lesnar for the July 4th show in Sumo Hall, Japan. He is advertised to face Kofi Kingston at the live event.

Dave Meltzer wrote the following update on the message boards of the Wrestling Observer:

"Lesnar and Brad Rheingans wanted to go to Japan to see Masa Saito," Meltzer wrote. "Just figured since he was going anyway, make it tax deductible, get his trans paid and work one show."

Lesnar has not wrestled at a WWE live event since 2004.
