The future of Universal Champion Brock Lesnar in the WWE has been one of the most followed wrestling stories in 2018. Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter recently reported that Lesnar's contract expires after WrestleMania 34, but there are clauses that could extend hi deal into the summer.
Now, Meltzer is reporting that Triple H could be the man who'll have the duties of negotiating Lesnar's next wrestling contract. The Game was the man who brought Ronda Rousey into WWE, and he's proven to be a great negotiator.
With Vince McMahon focusing on building his XFL project, it makes more sense to have Triple H try to hammer out a new deal with one of the most dominant forces to ever step into a WWE ring.
But there's no guarantee that The Beast Incarnate is entirely set on returning to the WWE. There have been rumours that he's interested in returning to UFC. Last year, he received a one-year suspension by the USADA for failing a pair of drug tests, but he'll be free to return when his contract formally expires.
Since returning to the WWE in 2012, Lesnar has been arguably the company's biggeset mainstream star. He's held the Universal Championship for nearly a full calendar year, and Lesnar was the one who ended The Undertaker's undefeated WrestleMania streak four years ago.
But some have criticized the WWE for putting the Universal title on Lesnar - given that he's only fought five times since WrestleMania 33. On top of that, the vast majority of his matches had extremely predictable outcomes, and WWE should be focusing more on younger, full-time talent.
Right now, it's expected that Lesnar will face Roman Reigns at WrestleMania. If The Big Dog takes down The Beast Incarnate, it may only add to speculation that Lesnar's on his way out of WWE. In the mean time, we continue to monitor Lesnar's contract situation closely.
