As expected, WWE is pushing hard for Brock Lesnar to sign a contract extension before his current deal expires. Management definitely does not want him to hit free agency because that means that a major bidding war will take place. UFC and Bellator are already said to be interested in bringing the former world heavyweight champion back into the world of mixed martial arts. Vince McMahon really wants his champion under a new contract before Wrestlemania.

While he is more than likely heading back to UFC, there is still a slight chance that Brock Lesnar sticks around and signs another contract with WWE because the money is simply too good to pass up for the amount of work that he is required to put in. The belief is that management would like to push Sheamus up to the point where a match against Lesnar could headline a pay per view such as Summerslam or the Survivor Series.

Things could be a bit different when Wade Barrett finally makes his return to WWE. He could be doing a face turn. Management is aware that his character is quite popular with the audience and internet fans, so capitalizing on that would be a good idea. Plus, the creative department is concerned about pushing him on the heel side because there a lot of guys being pushed. Barrett would need to pass Rusev, Brock Lesnar, Seth Rollins and Bray Wyatt.
