Backstage News on When Brock Lesnar Signed New WWE Contract, More
Friday, April 13, 2018
It was officially announced by the WWE this past Monday night on RAW that
signed a new contract with the company.
According to Dave Meltzer on a recent edition of
Radio, the agreement for a new deal was made on the Monday before WrestleMania at the Go-Home Episode of RAW and was signed on Sunday at WrestleMania before the match. It is being said that the contract that Lesnar signed is a new contract and not an extension of his existing deal. It is also being said that his new contract is at a much higher rate that his newly expired contract. Meltzer also noted that it is currently not known if the new deal is a one-match contract or far more than that.
The agreement was said to be kept quiet and only a very few people knew about it. Meltzer even stated that
only found out about it on the day of WrestleMania and he had thought all along that he would be winning the title from Lesnar up until that point. The original ending was reportedly supposed to be
coming off the ropes and getting put into an F5, however he would have countered it into a spear and pinned Lesnar to win the match. It was changed to Lesnar hitting the F5 and beating Reigns.
It was also stated that the match went off as planned and nobody went off-script. It was previously reported that the new deal allows Lesnar to fight both in the WWE and the UFC. If Lesnar's new contract turns out to be just a one-match contract, then his potential return and future fight in the UFC still has to be discussed an agreed upon.
Meltzer also noted that Lesnar has yet to re-enter the USADA testing pool. Lesnar was suspended by the USADA for testing positive for a banned substance and an estrogen blocker called clomiphene when he underwent an out-of-competition test and an in-competition test prior to his fight with Mark Hunt at UFC 200 in 2016. Lesnar was suspended for one year by USADA, however the suspension was frozen after Lesnar announced his retirement from MMA. Lesnar still has six months of his suspension to complete once he re-enters the USADA testing pool, so if Lesnar is serious about returning to the UFC, it is unclear why he has yet to re-enter the pool.
