Report claims Brock Lesnar in “contract impasse” with WWE

In an update to a story making the rounds on Tuesday following the 2/23 WWE RAW taping in Nashville, a new report by Dave Meltzer on has revealed that current WWE World Heavyweight Champion Brock Lesnar is currently at an impasse with WWE regarding the terms of a new contract with the company.

Lesnar and WWE Chairman/CEO Vince McMahon were described as not budging leading to Lesnar leaving the taping and not appearing on RAW despite WWE pushing that he would be making an appearance. Lesnar has four dates remaining on his current deal including 3/9 in Pittsburgh, 3/23 in Los Angeles, 3/29 in Santa Clara and 3/30 in San Jose.

McMahon has reportedly been trying to sign Lesnar to a new deal before his current one expires following WrestleMania 31 to avoid Lesnar playing the free-agent market with a rumored return to MMA with either the UFC or Bellator.
