Report: New Details On Lesnar Re-Signing With WWE

WrestleMania 34’s main event left a lot of people scratching their heads – and rightfully so.

WWE has been planning this Brock Lesnar vs. Roman Reigns storyline for the past four years. It all kicked off at WrestleMania 30 in New Orleans when Lesnar became the first person to ever defeat The Undertaker at The Show Of Shows.

Lesnar would go on to win the WWE Title while Roman Reigns continued to climb the ranks within the company. Last year at WrestleMania 33 Reigns picked up the biggest win of his career when he became the second person to defeat The Undertaker at the event.

Now the stage was set for the only two men to have ever defeated The Undertaker at WrestleMania to clash themselves at the event for the Universal Championship. Fans expected WrestleMania 34 to be the event in which Reigns finally dethroned The Beast and took his place atop the WWE mountain.

Instead, Lesnar bloodied Reigns terribly with some legitimate elbows to the skull before hitting a sixth F5 to end the night. The following day news broke that Lesnar had signed a new deal with WWE.

There are conflicting reports as to how long that deal is – some reporting a multi-year deal and others reporting a short-term one. Bleacher Report’s Jeremy Botter reports a very interesting twist to the situation.

Botter reports that Lesnar has signed on for one more match in WWE, that match being his Universal Title defense against Roman Reigns inside a Steel Cage in Saudi Arabia later this month. Vince McMahon reportedly called an audible during the Lesnar and Reings match at WrestleMania and changed the finish because he didn’t like the reaction Reigns was receiving.

The plan is to have Lesnar lose the title in front of a more “conductive” audience. Botter did note that we will see Lesnar in WWE again after the match, but likely not for a long time and much less than we’re used to seeing him.

Brock reportedly wants to put all of his effort into the UFC at this time, as he will likely take on the winner of Daniel Cormier vs. Stipe Miocic for the heavyweight title at the end of this year. Botter also noted that Lesnar could return for an appearance at WrestleMania 35 next year:
