Will the Beast to stick around after WrestleMania?

What's the story?

While promoting WrestleMania 34, Triple H was asked about Brock Lesnar's contract status with WWE in an interview with News 18.

The WWE COO revealed that negotiations were on to keep the Beast Incarnate in the WWE after his contract expires soon after WrestleMania.

In case you didn't know...

The general consensus heading into WrestleMania is that Roman Reigns will defeat Lesnar to become the new Universal champion. The rumored outcome has been based on Vince McMahon's obsession with the Big Dog and also Lesnar's current deal coming to an end soon.

Lesnar's aspirations of returning to UFC are no secret with the former UFC Heavyweight Champion seemingly set to get into the Octagon again.

However, WWE is still not ready to give away their biggest draw to the biggest mixed martial arts promotion in the world.

The heart of the matter

Triple H admitted that Lesnar is a challenging personality to work with and that a decision on his future will be taken as time goes by. The Cerebral Assassin chose his words wisely and didn't give away any plans for Lesnar's future while claiming that the WWE is 'working' on it.

"Brock is Brock, he's an interesting guy to be with, makes it challenging which is always wonderful and we're working on it. We'll see where that goes as time goes on."

What's next?

All the backstage negotiations aside, the dominant Universal champion's 350+ day reign could come to an end as part of the coronation of Roman Reigns on April 8th in New Orleans.

Reigns will win the Universal title for the first time ever even if Lesnar chooses the big bucks of WWE over the UFC gig. A certain Bobby Lashley, who has reportedly resigned from WWE, could finally feud with the man he's often compared to if WWE manages to convince Lesnar to stay.


Author's take

Just give Lesnar all the money in the world and have Lashley bring the fight to the Beast Incarnate after WrestleMania!

The fans deserve to see the two wrestlers/mixed martial artists settle a long-standing debate and it's a money feud that WWE and Brock himself shouldn't be against.
