Brock Lesnar is enjoying possibly his greatest year in the WWE since he first signed his developmental contract with the company in 2000.
It dates back to August 18, 2013 when Brock Lesnar defeated former WWE superstar CM Punk in a brutal no disqualification match at SummerSlam; an impressive victory over Punk who returned at Payback to defeat Chris Jericho.
However, as impressive as Lesnar’s year has been, it looks as if the next six months or so could be Lesnar’s final months as a WWE superstar.
After his victory over CM Punk Lesnar then set his sights on The World’s Largest Athlete, The Big Show. This was the first one-sided destruction of the year for Brock Lesnar. Barely allowing the match to begin before he took out The Big Show and dismantled the giant with countless steel chair hits.
Let’s not forget the other achievement Lesnar conquered; defeating The Undertaker at WrestleMania XXX.

- WWE: Sheamus wants to take on Rusev and Lesnar
- WWE Raw: Brock Lesnar bad health rumors surface
He followed the victory up with another dominating performance at SummerSlam where he defeated John Cena for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship; which is being seen as possibly the most one sided title match in history.
The second match between Lesnar and Cena wasn’t as one sided but Lesnar walked out with the gold, still revelling in his success.
Enjoying a fantastic year and possibly a blockbuster title match at WrestleMania 31; Lesnar’s will still be thinking about April 2015, where his WWE contract is set to expire.
Dave Meltzer of The Wrestling Observer was a guest on Jim Ross’ podcast, The Ross Report as both men discussed Brock Lesnar and his contract situation. It is believed that both the WWE and The Beast Incarnate have yet to sit down and have any serious talks about Lesnar re-signing with the company, once his contract eventually expires.
It looks highly unlikely that Brock Lesnar will ever step foot in a UFC octagon again, even though he may have the fire to do so; but Meltzer told Ross that due to the state of the current pay-per-view business of the UFC and the incredible success they’re having, Lesnar may still hold talks with the UFC.
Time to call it a day?
If he does so then Meltzer believes Lesnar could use the potential figure the UFC provide as leverage; depending on how desperate the WWE are to keep their current WWE World Heavyweight Champion.
Right now I believe the WWE needs Lesnar, with Roman Reigns and Daniel Bryan out injured there are limited options as to who can be an instant success with the gold. If the WWE and Brock Lesnar don’t come to terms then I still believe the WWE will be in a good position, if the company wants to put Reigns over as the next big face of the WWE then Lesnar’s should call it quits.
It’s understandable that Lesnar would want a winning end to his WWE career, if it is to be his final run, but if Lesnar doesn’t re-sign then expect Brock Lesnar to drop the championship to Roman Reigns in Santa Fe, California.
WWE fans – what do you think? Will Brock Lesnar sign a new deal with the WWE? Or will WrestleMania be his final appearance in the WWE? Let us know your thoughts in the comments section below.
