If reports are to be believed, Brock Lesnar has signed a new two-year contract with WWE that will run through WrestleMania 31.
So this definitely means Triple H is going over on him at WrestleMania 29, right?
According to a report from PWInsider.com, Brock Lesnar has now officially signed a two-year contract with WWE that will run all the way through WrestleMania 31.
This comes just a few months before his current deal was set to expire following this year's "Grand Daddy of Them All," where it's expected he will be taking on Triple H in a rematch of their encounter at SummerSlam last year. It was that event doing such a strong buyrate, including the solid number he drew with John Cena at Extreme Rules earlier in the year, that led to WWE wanting to stay in the Brock Lesnar business.
Lesnar, of course, is always in business for himself and if the money is right for the right amount of dates, he'll do what needs to be done. It seems the two sides agreed that his lighter schedule and decreased workload is an okay tradeoff for the business he brings in.
Hard to argue with the numbers, after all.
There have been rumors that WWE plans to have him work with CM Punk and Randy Orton over the next year but now that he's locked in for two years, there's no telling what direction they will go. Either way, it's nice to know one of the biggest stars in history will be sticking around for a while.
And now we can once again let the speculation begin that it will be Undertaker vs. Lesnar at WrestleMania 30 (or even 31).
