Brock Lesnar Reportedly Signs Two Year WWE Contract Extension
According to Mike Johnson from the Pro Wrestling Insider, Brock Lesnar has agreed to sign an extension to his current contract with the WWE for another two years.
Lesnar signed a one year deal with the company back in April of last year, which expires after WrestleMania 29. With this contract extension, fans can expect to see Lesnar wrestle more matches for the company until at least WrestleMania 31 in 2015.
It’s unknown at this stage how many dates that Lesnar is committed to for his contract extension, but it’s likely to be similar to his current deal. For now, Lesnar is obligated to only appear on WWE television for 20 – 30 dates. The main reason he has a part time schedule in the first place is because he’s uncomfortable with the constant traveling that is required in the professional wrestling industry. This is why his original run in the WWE only lasted for two years.
So far during his return, Lesnar has only faced John Cena and Triple H. He is set to face Triple H once again at WrestleMania 29 in a rematch from this past year’s SummerSlam. Future plans for Lesnar are probably for him to face off against the likes of CM Punk and Randy Orton in 2013.
UFC President Dana White had commented recently that Lesnar had been close to fighting in MMA again at some point in 2012 against Fedor Emelianenko in a match that would have taken place at Cowboys Stadium. Emelianenko’s father sadly passed away and Emelianenko retired from the sport so the match never happened.
For now, it appears as if Lesnar has chosen to stay with the WWE and we may not see him fight inside the octagon ever again, unless of course, WWE and UFC can negotiate some type of deal that will allow him to appear for both companies.
