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.

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.

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.

Earlier this week, reports surfaced that Brock Lesnar had started negotiating a new contract with WWE. The move has led many to believe that he is surely going to extend his stint in professional wrestling after the current deal expires in April. However, there are also those that believe that Lesnar is simply using Vince McMahon as a way to leverage even more money from Dana White. The feeling is that he still yearns for a UFC return.

Some further details have been leaked about the real life backstage incident between Vince McMahon and Brock Lesnar at the latest episode of Monday Night Raw.

Apparently, the heavyweight champion wants a deal on the table in case he is not satisfied with the UFC offer.

For years now, WWE has neglected Samoa Joe. He has been a free agent several times over the past decade, and the company has never offered him a contract. That might be changing this time around. Triple H is said to be interested in at least giving Joe a tryout for NXT. Now that he is more influential in the company, some believe that he might be able to convince Vince McMahon to give the former world heavyweight champion a chance at being signed.

The former world heavyweight champion then decided to contact Eric Bischoff and sign with WCW instead.

It appears that an increase in money has led to a reconciliation between Rey Mysterio and WWE. Reports have surfaced that Vince McMahon had grown a bit desperate because numbers in Mexico had not been what they were expecting, so he knew that he needed one of his draws back on television. That presumably led him to offer Mysterio more money to return, even though the masked performer had made it known that he was looking for a way out of his contract.
