-- After he retained the Universal Championship at WrestleMania 34, WWE officially announced that Brock Lesnar has re-signed with the company.
"WWE Chairman & CEO Vince McMahon announced today that Universal Champion Brock Lesnar has re-signed with WWE," a press release stated. It also revealed that Lesnar will be appearing at the company's Greatest Royal Rumble event in Saudi Arabia later this month, where he'll be defending his title against Roman Reigns in a rematch from WrestleMania.
WWE didn't disclose the length of Lesnar's new deal or financial terms for it.
Lesnar vs. Reigns at the Greatest Royal Rumble will be a steel cage match. The show takes place at King Abdullah Sports City Stadium in Jeddah on April 27th and will air live on the WWE Network. A 50-man Royal Rumble match (with Daniel Bryan, Big Show, Kane, Braun Strowman, and Bray Wyatt confirmed for it), John Cena vs. Triple H, and six other men's title matches are also set for the show.
What Lesnar re-signing means for his potential mixed martial arts future remains to be seen. Before WrestleMania, Dana White claimed that Lesnar would be coming back to the UFC but said he didn't know when that would be.
-- While details are still sparse, Brock Lesnar and Vince McMahon exchanged words after last night's WrestleMania 34 main event.
Pro Wrestling Sheet reported that Lesnar was livid when he returned backstage after his match against Roman Reigns and went off on McMahon. Their report noted that the situation was brief and ended with Lesnar throwing the Universal title belt either at McMahon or at the wall.
The belt throw did happen, but whether they were working everyone or not is always a question when you have McMahon, Lesnar, and Paul Heyman in the mix. The belief is that they weren't.
Almost nobody knew about Lesnar winning the match, but as you probably can figure, he did not go off script. The change was made to the finish, as far as why, it's probably because it was part of Lesnar's new deal. It was a fairly late change but not a last minute one, but like everything with McMahon and Lesnar, they keep things secret.
WWE announced earlier today that Lesnar had re-signed and would be defending his Universal Championship against Reigns in a steel cage match at the Greatest Royal Rumble in Saudi Arabia on April 27th. The length of Lesnar's new deal wasn't disclosed.
Everything that is happening in the wrestling world.
