Update on Brock Lesnar’s new deal with WWE

Brock Lesnar’s new deal with WWE is not believed to be a lengthy contract according to a new report by Mike Johnson of PWInsider.com.

As noted yesterday, WWE’s announcement of Lesnar’s re-signing did not specifically mention any kind of year long or multi-year deal option.

Lesnar, who did not appear on last night’s RAW in New Orleans, will defend the WWE Universal Championship against Roman Reigns in a steel cage match at the upcoming Greatest Royal Rumble event on April 27 in three weeks from Saudi Arabia.
