Brock Lesnar's future has just become a little clearer after the latest backstage reports from the WWE.
For months now it has been speculated that Lesnar will leave WWE when his contract with the wrestling company expires after WrestleMania 31.
However, reports from Pro Wrestling Observer now suggest that Brock Lesnar will sign a new deal with WWE to continue with the wrestling company after Mania - but only on one condition.
It's understood that Brock Lesnar's decision to appear in the crowd at UFC 184 and chat ringside with president Dana White was nothing more than a power play, with Lesnar taking advantage of his recent argument with Vince McMahon to show WWE's Chairman how keen his others suitors are to sign him.
White even revealed that he thinks Lesnar will give him a call when his contract with WWE ends. But although Lesnar and McMahon's dispute is reportedly not resolved yet, most key personnel in WWE still feel that Lesnar will sign a new deal as long as they are willing to pay him more than what UFC offers.
"Despite recent drama there are still those backstage who expect Lesnar to sign a new deal with WWE when his contract expires after WrestleMania. Several factors play into that though, including how much UFC is willing to offer the former Heavyweight Champion, and how much WWE is willing to come back with," WrestleZone reported.
"In regards to his appearance at last week’s UFC pay-per-view, it was seen as more of a power play and a message to WWE and Vince McMahon. Lesnar obviously wants the company to take his name seriously, and understand how much he’s worth with several other competitors looking to sign him in April.
"If the money is right, it does make sense for Brock to stay in pro wrestling, working two or three big matches every year with a dozen or so appearances on Raw."
