According to Wrestlezone.com (h/t PWInsider.com), former UFC star and current WWE part-time talent Brock Lesnar has agreed to an extension with WWE.
He signed a one-year deal prior to last year's WrestleMania that was set to expire at the conclusion of this year's Mania.
The deal is reportedly for two years, which places Lesnar in WWE until WrestleMania 31. This extension may have an impact on his return and create more feuds in the future.
The last time Lesnar was seen on WWE programming, he touted his resignation from WWE in order to save his remaining appearances for the buildup of WrestleMania. This was after defeating Triple H at SummerSlam. The storyline was left virtually open-ended as the two superstars have been seldom seen since then, so there may be an opportunity to rekindle that feud in the coming months.
But now that Lesnar has agreed to remain in WWE, he may not face Triple H immediately upon his return. WWE may decide to place Lesnar in more high-profile matches, possibly competing for either the WWE or World Heavyweight Championship.
Lesnar has shown that he can draw more audiences, given that last year’s Extreme Rules pay-per-view, which pitted him against John Cena, sold very well.
His return mixed in his MMA background with his wrestling abilities, which made for more compelling matches.
WWE is hoping that Lesnar is able to draw more viewers on a regular basis.
But Lesnar only had two matches under his belt since his return; there will definitely be more opponents and matches to come now that he signed an extension.
