Brock Lesnar's part-time, big money status has reportedly caused friction in the past with his fellow WWE Superstars, and news today may lead to a few more jealous looks backstage.
That's because, as reported by Dave Meltzer in the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, the Beast Incarnate's upcoming Hell in the Cell appearance is actually separate from the multi-million extension signed back in March.
Is is unclear exactly how much Lesnar will earn for his match against The Undertaker, but the revelation shows that the WWE's decision to end the feud at Hell in the Cell was a last minute one.

Had it not been, Lesnar would have simply been fulfilling one of his "three-to-four" PPV appearances earmarked on his March deal.
The fact WWE are willing to fork out extra dollars for Lesnar also backs up the suggestion that Vince McMahon had suddenly become convinced that he couldn't let the Undertaker feud drag on until WrestleMania 32.
The extra pay day is unlikely to sit well amongst the majority of the WWE main roster, who work day in day out to earn a fraction of Lesnar's salary.
Having said that, few on the current roster can head a show like the Beast Incarnate can. The WWE know that Lesnar can carry a pay-per-view event, and, as such, appear more than happy to stretch beyond the already lucrative contract offered in March to secure their man.
As for the match itself, with the feud tied at 1-1 at present, the upcoming PPV is sure to be an explosive occasion. With just a few weeks to go, there is legitimate uncertainty as to who will come out on top between the two Superstars.
