The Wrestling Post – Lesnar renews contract with WWE

January 28, 2013

Brock Lesnar has signed a 2 year extension with the WWE.  The deal dispels rumors of a return to the UFC.

Lesnar’s WWE commitment was solidified when he showed up on Raw Monday night and F5’d Vince McMahon.  The appearance likely means that Lesnar will appear at Wrestlemania this spring.  PWInsider.com first reported the re-signings of Lesnar and Chris Jericho.  Lesnar had signed a limited one year deal which expired this spring.  This deal will have him with the WWE through Wrestlemania 31.

Payout Take:
 Interesting to note that Lesnar still sports Jimmy John’s and Case IH, an agricultural equipment company, on the back of his shirts. Its a prudent move despite the rumors that Brock might have been willing to come back to the UFC.  Certainly he could make more money with the WWE taking less physical abuse than he would in the UFC.  At his age and with his past medical issues, its the better business move.
