Vince McMahon and Brock Lesnar's relationship is officially at its lowest ebb. McMahon has always been known as a strong-minded business man who likes to get his own way, but at the moment, that is certainly not happening.
McMahon and the WWE want Heavyweight Champion Brock Lesnar to remain with the wrestling company beyond the end of his current contract, which expires shortly after WrestleMania XXXI.
But a huge "business-related disagreement" between McMahon and Lesnar before last Monday's Raw has thrown Lesnar's future into doubt yet again.
Furthermore, Lesnar was present at UFC 184 on Saturday, which further fuelled reports of an untenable discord between Lesnar and the WWE. And some experts have even questioned whether Lesnar might renege on his scheduled main event appearance against Roman Reigns at WrestleMania XXXI on March 29.
Vince McMahon reportedly held a meeting last Tuesday, the day after his bust-up with Lesnar, to calm tensions in WWE, and the Chairman told personnel not to worry about Lesnar not performing at Mania, with the powerful wrestler still contracted to appear. Asked what would happen if Lesnar breached that contract, McMahon reportedly threatened to sue Lesnar, according to wrestling expert Dave Meltzer.

"On Tuesday at the SmackDown tapings, people within WWE reportedly asked Vince if they needed to come up with back-up plans for WrestleMania 31 but Vince said no and assured them that Lesnar will be working the show because he's contractually obligated to," NoDQ reported.
"Vince reportedly said something to the effect of they will sue Lesnar if he doesn't show up. WWE officials are said to be very confident that Lesnar will be working WrestleMania."
