Brock Lesnar re-signs with WWE, will have rematch against Roman Reigns
Many WWE fans were left surprised when Brock Lesnar defeated Roman Reigns at WrestleMania 34 on Sunday, mainly because Lesnar’s contract was set to expire and there have been rumors that he will return to the UFC. Apparently that is not the plan, at least for now.
The WWE announced on Monday that Lesnar has re-signed with the organization and will defend his Universal Title against Reigns again in a steel cage match at the Greatest Royal Rumble. It’s unclear how long Lesnar’s extension runs, but the Greatest Royal Rumble will be held on April 27.
One report claimed Lesnar had a “real-life verbal altercation” with Vince McMahon after WrestleMania, but apparently that was nothing too serious. There was speculation that the argument had to do with Lesnar going off-script against Reigns, and some people felt he may have been too aggressive in delivering elbows during the match.
UFC president Dana White recently confirmed that Lesnar will fight in the UFC again, but no timeline has been given for that. Perhaps McMahon agreed to let Lesnar fight in the octagon at some point during his WWE contract.
