The WWE have spent so much time and energy in pushing Brock Lesnar to the forefront of the wrestling company in the last year. From his epic win at WrestleMania XXX against The Undertaker, to his complete destruction of John Cena at SummerSlam last summer, WWE have been hell bent on making Lesnar look strong for some time.
However, that could all be about to blow up in their face after the latest revelation. It seems that Japanese wrestling promotion Inoki Genome Federation (IGF) - owned by WWE Hall of Famer Antonio Inoki - wants to sign Lesnar when his contract with WWE runs out.
Lesnar's current contract is set to run out after WrestleMania XXXI, according to reports, and previously he had been expected to be on his way back to UFC.
But this week reports have confirmed that Lesnar will be staying in wrestling because of the concussion fears of going back into UFC.
Those reports had provided a sense of relief for WWE fans, before another twist today courtesy of wrestlinginc.com, threw his future in further doubt.

"Simon mentioned that they want to bring current WWE World Heavyweight Champion Brock Lesnar to the promotion once his current deal is up."
Just when WWE fans finally thought Brock Lesnar might stay put, it looks as though his future is even more up in the air as we head towards WrestleMania XXXI.
