Brock Lesnar has some weird clauses in his WWE contract

Published 23 Comments

The WWE has been through a very turbulent 48 hours in this past week, with several superstars falling foul of the Wellness Policy.

Alberto Del Rio, Paige, and Eva Marie are all going to miss the next 30 days after seemingly failing drugs tests.

With that in mind, you have to think about the Brock Lesnar situation, where after testing positive from the USADA in the run up to his UFC fight against Mark Hunt, the WWE decided to not punish him at all. And there may be a very interesting reason why.

The WWE justified their decision not to punish Lesnar for his failed tests by saying that because he is a part-time talent, and only wrestles a few times a year, he isn't subject to the Talent Wellness Policy.

That isn't the only nice bonus that Lesnar gets in the WWE, with some more details being revealed about The Beast Incarnate's contract.

Apparently, there are provisions in the contract that Lesnar signed with the WWE that state what he can and can't be disciplined for.

"And regarding the double standard, Lesnar’s line on the 8/15 Raw when confronting Slater and saying, “I don’t give a shit about your kids,” which was bleeped out wasn’t scripted," Dave Meltzer said in the latest Wrestling Observer.

"If it was Joey Styles who said it, or anyone underneath (Brad Maddox was fired for less for using the word prick in a dark match), they’d be gone yesterday. As of press time, Lesnar appeared to be in no trouble nor has anything been said about it."

"Lesnar’s contract is unique as there are provisions regarding what he can and can’t be disciplined for."

When you're the biggest fish in the sea, you can do whatever you want.
