Some possible good news for fans who are against the idea of Roman Reigns becoming the top star in WWE. There is now a really good chance that he does not get that opportunity because rumors have surfaced that Triple H has finally convinced Vince McMahon to let Brock Lesnar retain the heavyweight championship. The widespread feeling is that giving the belt to Reigns will actually hurt him in the long run because the fans are so against it right now.

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.

Some further information has been revealed in regards to the new contract that Brock Lesnar signed with WWE this week. The heavyweight champion has agreed to remain in the company for the next three years. While the amount has not been revealed, Lesnar confirmed that it was a huge sum of money. He stated that UFC offered him twenty times more than what he was previously making, so Vince McMahon had to open up the vault.

While a lot of WWE fans are overjoyed right now about the Brock Lesnar news, they are about to be brought back down to earth for a bit when they realize that the new contract means that John Cena has a better chance of winning the United States Heavyweight Championship from Rusev at Wrestlemania. Since Lesnar will still be part time, the front office wanted a belt on Cena, so that he can use it to headline live events each week.

Sometimes in life, you just get a deal on the table that is simply too difficult to refuse. Brock Lesnar was given just that by WWE, so he decided to sign on the dotted line instead of waiting to negotiate a contract with UFC and Bellator. The former world heavyweight champion announced on ESPN that his days in MMA are behind him now. His legacy in that sport is completed. He will finish off his career as a professional wrestler now.

Last night, Nikki Bella cut a promo towards AJ Lee that was scheduled to be included in the next episode of Smackdown. However, there are talks that the Divas Champion went off script and took a verbal jab at AJ. She mentioned how AJ defended the title less times than Brock Lesnar did. That does not sound like something that WWE writers would script because the company does not want to make their heavyweight champion look bad.

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.

Unless he flops horribly as the WWE Heavyweight Champion, you can expect a lengthy run for Roman Reigns after he defeats Brock Lesnar at Wrestlemania. Since he is going to need opponents, management has been looking to boost the heel side of the roster to provide their new champion with some variety. One of the guys being eyed for a brief ascension into the main event is none other than Wade Barrett.

There are talks coming out of WWE right now that if Brock Lesnar were to sign a new contract to remain with the company, then he would be rewarded with a victory over Roman Reigns at Wrestlemania. He would still be allowed to work the limited schedule that he has been on while continuing to carry the heavyweight championship. Management would then put the IC and US belt on Daniel Bryan and John Cena respectively so they can headline live events.

With his future still up in the air, several people from both the mixed martial arts world and the professional wrestling world have been discussing what Brock Lesnar will choose. Alistair Overeem does not believe that the current WWE Heavyweight Champion will be making a foray back to UFC because the competition is too stiff for Lesnar. Overeem might be promoting some conflict between the two for a potential rematch with Lesnar.
