Thanks in large part to the presence of Sting and Brock Lesnar, WWE has a little bit of momentum heading into Wrestlemania. The latest episode of Monday Night Raw saw an increase in viewership. While a lot of fans online have been critical of the awkward ending to the show, the belief is that they are still going to be tuning into the pay per view this upcoming Sunday. Numbers from the next episode of Raw will be especially telling.

When the latest episode of Monday Night Raw ended, a lot of fans took to social media to complain about the final segment between Brock Lesnar and Roman Reigns. Many felt that it was a bit lackluster, especially since it was supposed to increase anticipation for Wrestlemania. It has now been reported that the live audience did not take well to the ending, either. Many of them expressed displeasure with WWE on the way out of the arena.

On the latest episode of Monday Night Raw, WWE fans heard a promo from Brock Lesnar, where he bragged about beating The Rock and sending him away to Hollywood. Management purposely wrote that into the script because they want to leave the door open for a potential main event match between the two of them at Wrestlemania next year. The company knows that they will need a high profile match to fill out that gigantic stadium in Dallas.

There are talks going around right now that WWE is hoping to sign Brock Lesnar to a contract extension before his big main event match against Roman Reigns at Wrestlemania. Some are saying that a deal could be finalized at the next episode of Monday Night Raw in Los Angeles. However, there are those that are skeptical about these reports because it would make more sense for Lesnar to negotiate with UFC before signing a deal.

Next week, Monday Night Raw is taking place in Los Angeles. The event will be the go home episode right before Wrestlemania, and tickets are now completely sold out. Management has already secured Brock Lesnar for the evening.

Everyone already knows about the argument that Vince McMahon and Brock Lesnar recently had while discussing business backstage at Monday Night Raw. That has caused a bit of headache for management. Sting, on the other hand, is said to be a model employee. He understands the contract that he signed with WWE, and he is more than content to fulfill his end of the bargain before fading away permanently from professional wrestling.

Fans that were in panic mode over the backstage argument between Brock Lesnar and Vince McMahon a couple of weeks ago during Monday Night Raw can rest easier today. The WWE Heavyweight Champion is currently in Pittsburgh and backstage at the taping. Lesnar and McMahon are expected to continue their negotiations this afternoon, so there might be a very slight chance that the former walks out on the latter yet again.

Last week, Brock Lesnar and Vince McMahon got into a heated argument backstage during Monday Night Raw. The two sides could not come to an agreement on terms of a new contract. Lesnar walked out and attended a UFC event, something that McMahon was very much against. Sounds like a lot of causes for concern. However, McMahon is said to be fine with things. WWE will continue with their current plans for Lesnar and Wrestlemania.
