WWE: Brock Lesnar already talking to other promotions about wrestling future

Published 30 Comments

After retaining his title at Sunday's Royal Rumble, Brock Lesnar is all set to take on Roman Reigns for the WWE's Heavyweight Title at WrestleMania 31.

The Beast Incarnate's future in the WWE beyond the epic match remains unclear however with the Superstar's current deal set to expire soon after the biggest event of the year.

And now new comments have revealed that Lesnar is already in contact with one of WWE's biggest competitors, the veteran wrestler clearly exploring options beyond what Vince McMahon can offer him.

In talks

Kevin Kay, the president of Spike TV, spoke to MMA Fighting recently to discuss Lesnar's relationship with Bellator MMA President Scott Coker and Kay confirmed that the latter continues to be in talks with the current WWE Champion.

"He (Coker) has the relationship to talk to everybody," Kay revealed.

"He's with Fedor (Emelianenko). He's talking to Brock, he's talking to Gina (Carano). These are people he's known for years, so we are in a better position to potentially land these people."

How far these talks have progressed is still anyone's guess but Coker himself put himself in the picture to make a move for Brock Lesnar when speaking to the same publication last month:

"When the time comes to have serious dialogue, we'll be right there," he explained.

Clearly Lesnar is in regular contact with Coker but that doesn't mean for sure that he will quit the WWE.

WWE future

Those in charge of the company, fresh of watching the giant pull of an excellent match alongside John Cena and Seth Rollins at the Rumble, will be desperate to keep him around beyond WrestleMania.

With Lesnar currently one of the company's biggest earners despite his part-time status it remains to be seen though whether the higher ups can justify continuing to folk out big money for relatively infrequent appearances.

Either way, they will be hoping no information confirming Lesnar's plans leaks out prior to the main event at WrestleMania - knowing the big man virtually done when he steps in the ring against Roman Reigns will all but kill the intrigue of a match up that is already drawing criticism.

What do you think WWE fans? Should the WWE go all out to keep Lesnar or, if he is keen to return to MMA, is it time to let him go? Let us know in the comments section below...
