WWE star Brock Lesnar recently made his return to the company. As it turns out, he will be around for quite a while to entertain the fans.
Brock Lesnar is likely to stay until 2023
Brock Lesnar made a huge surprise return to WWE as he immediately confronted Roman Reigns following his successful Universal Title defense against John Cena in the main event of SummerSlam. It seems he is set to feud with ‘The Tribal Chief’ for the title.
Recent reports stated that the return of ‘The Beast Incarnate’ was a last-minute call. His deal came together at the last minute so that SummerSlam would have a big moment to close the show. New details regarding his latest contract have emerged.
According to Sean Ross Sapp of Fightful Select, Brock Lesnar is now under contract with WWE for “roughly a year and a half, and at least eight matches,” but the contract is open to being renegotiated and changed if the company want him to work in more matches within that timeframe.
After an absence of long sixteen months, Brock Lesnar made his return to the comapny. There have been multiple talks regarding his contract negotiations with the company. This is the longest that Lesnar’s been away from WWE since 2012.
It has also been confirmed that WWE will position Lesnar as a babyface on SmackDown starting this Friday as he reignites his long on and off again feud with Roman Reigns. This is the first time in the history of their feud that the roles will be reversed.
