Brock Lesnar Rumored To Have Signed New WWE Contract

Brock Lesnar faced a murky future in the WWE last year, with his contract expiring after WrestleMania 34 as well as the belief that he was going to head back to the UFC.

The Beast Incarnate wound up signing a new short-term deal with the WWE, and he's stayed on ever since. As for UFC, Lesnar actually told president Dana White that he's retiring from the sport, thus ending an illustrious tenure in the octagon.

So it's difficult to envision Lesnar wanting to leave WWE in the near future, given how much money and opportunity they're giving him. He's only a part-time performer, but Lesnar has already endured two lengthy Universal Championship reigns - and he's the current holder of the men's Money in the Bank briefcase.

Lesnar has teased a cash-in multiple times here, and he was about to do so against Seth Rollins at the Super ShowDown event. However, The Architect fought off Lesnar and prevented him from being able to cash in his contract. The MITB holder will get it in eventually, however, and another championship reign awaits.

What This Means

Lesnar turns 41 next month, but he continues to take care of his body and could easily wrestle for another 10-plus years. That's why it wouldn't be surprising if WWE wound up giving Lesnar a long-term deal, because he simply hasn't slowed down and continues to be a major money draw for the company.
