Rumor Roundup (April 14, 2018): Brock Lesnar WWE deal, blood at WrestleMania, Rey Mysterio, more!

Speculating on the rumors surrounding pro wrestling is a favored pastime of many fans, perhaps second only to actually watching the matches. In this daily column, we take a look at the latest rumors being churned out by the pro wrestling rumor mill.

Important reminder: Rumors are just that -- rumors. None of this has been confirmed as legitimate news or fact, it's just circulating around the pro wrestling rumor mill. Remember, take it all with a grain of salt.

Rumors for the Day:

  • Per the Observer, Brock Lesnar’s new deal with WWE was reached on April 2 before Monday Night Raw, so he had signed almost a week before WrestleMania 34, and he knew he was winning on that day too.
  • That deal is apparently for more than just one match but he may not end up doing any more than the Greatest Royal Rumble booking. Apparently he got a big raise on it and no matter what it ends before SummerSlam.
  • Final note on that: Lesnar, Vince McMahon, and Roman Reigns all agreed on Brock elbowing Reigns to get him bloody during the WrestleMania match.
  • Rey Mysterio’s appearance in the Greatest Royal Rumble is a one-time deal for now, according to the Observer, and he hasn’t signed a new contract with WWE yet.
  • Orlando is apparently trying to host another WrestleMania relatively soon.
