With everyone being curious as to what WWE is paying Brock Lesnar, reports have surfaced that his contract is worth $3 million a year for three years. If that were the case, then the world heavyweight champion might actually be taking a pay cut. Lesnar was rumored to be making $5 million this past year. The amount is still a great deal for the former UFC star, though, as he is going to continue working a part time schedule, showing up only sporadically.

Now that Brock Lesnar has been signed to a long term deal with WWE, the belief is that the front office is going to focus on Paul Heyman.

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.
