0726_Brock-lesnar_wweBrock Lesnar will NOT be disciplined by the WWE for his UFC 200 drug test failures … and WILL perform at SummerSlam as planned … TMZ Sports has learned. 

A WWE spokesperson tells us … only full-time WWE performers are subject to the organization’s wellness policy, which prohibits PEDs … but since Brock isn’t a full-time performer, he’s essentially exempt. 

“WWE’s talent wellness program does not apply to part-time performers such as Brock Lesnar,” the spokesperson said.  

We confirmed with the WWE that Brock has only performed in 19 matches over the past 3 years (4 in ’14, 8 in ’15, 7 in ’16) … and that the average full-time WWE superstar wrestles more than 200 matches per year. 

One well-connected source broke down the situation like this — WWE is show business, not a regulated athletic competition … and the wellness program is only designed to keep the “full-time” performers healthy. 

Bottom line — Brock will be in the squared circle on August 21st … no matter what happens to him in the UFC.
