Will Brock Lesnar re-sign? Does WWE want to re-sign Brock?
WWE wants to sign Brock Lesnar for another year after WrestleMania in April. Whether or not Lesnar signs could affect WrestleMania 29 plans, according to the Wrestling Observer.
Lesnar, who is expected to return to WWE TV in February, is scheduled to face Triple H in a Summerslam re-match at Mania, and the finish could depend on whether Lesnar signs through to WM30.
Lesnar reportedly wants to wait until the last possible moment to negotiate and decide whether he wants to return for another year. The new deal would essentially be the same as his WM28 to WM29 deal - a handful of TV appearances and big PPV matches.
If Lesnar is locked up for another year, two big matches being talked about are Lesnar vs. C.M. Punk and Lesnar vs. The Undertaker.
Although Lesnar vs. Taker has potential to be a big PPV draw - especially after their infamous run-in at UFC 121 in October 2010 that could be incorporated into the TV build-up - Taker's physical condition would be the key to whether the match takes place.
According to the Observer, Undertaker is "really hurting bad" and Lesnar's very physical style might not work for Taker at this stage of his career.
The way I read that was if Lesnar re-signs, he goes over at WM29 and if he doesn't, HHH goes over. I have no doubt Lesnar ends up re-signing and gets even more money than this contract based on his drawing power.
