Backstage Update: WWE Hoping To Re-Sign Brock Lesnar Next Monday

At the WWE SmackDown television taping on Tuesday night, there were rumors going around the WWE dressing room that WWE World Heavyweight Champion Brock Lesnar was close to signing a new deal with the company.

According to the latest issue of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, the rumors are premature, as there is still no definitive word as to what Lesnar is going to do once his current WWE deal expires after WrestleMania 31.

As of Wednesday, the situation between Lesnar and WWE is reportedly the same as it has been for a few weeks now, dating back to the big backstage blow-up between Lesnar and Vince McMahon at a WWE RAW taping. Whatever caused that blow-up at RAW has yet to be settled and nothing has changed as of yet.

WWE officials are still negotiating with Lesnar and are hopeful to get him to sign a new contract, specifically targeting next Monday’s RAW in Los Angeles, California as the place and time they hope to see it happen.
