Brock Lesnar under WWE contract until 2023; Update on first match after return

As
seen
at
SummerSlam
2021,
the
‘alpha
male’
of
this
generation’s
WWE
roster
appeared
at
the
end
of
the
pay-per-view
to
confront
WWE
Universal
Champion
Roman
Reigns,
right
after
the
champion
retained
over
John
Cena.
This
marked
his
first
appearance
since
losing
the
WWE
Championship
to
Drew
McIntyre
at
WrestleMania
36
in
2020.

Reports
claimed,
thereafter
that
his
last
contract
expired
in
the
summer
of
2020.
In
an
update
from
Fightful
Select,
Lesnar
has
signed
a
new
WWE
contract
which
is
believed
to
be
for
“roughly
a
year
and
a
half.”

It
means
that
this
latest
deal
should
carry
him
through
early
2023,
possibly
until
WrestleMania
39,
scheduled
to
go
down
at
SoFi
Stadium
in
Inglewood,
California.

The
new
contract
will
allow
Brock
Lesnar
to
perform
in
at
least
8
matches
while
the
report
noted
that
the
terms
of
the
contract
are
‘open
to
change
with
further
negotiations.’

The
first
match
under
Lesnar’s
new
WWE
contract
is
expected
to
be
against
Roman
Reigns
for
the
Universal
Title,
with
Paul
Heyman
playing
a
big
part
in
the
build.
There
is
no
confirmation
on
when
this
mega
bout
but
it
could
take
place
at
WWE
Crown
Jewel
in
October
in
Saudi
Arabia.

In
more
news
about
the
top
WWE
Superstar,
he
is
set
to
be
a
babyface
on
the
WWE
SmackDown
roster.
This
has
already
been
strongly
speculated
after
he
returned
to
confront
WWE
Universal
Champion
Roman
Reigns
(the
top-most
heel
of
the
WWE
roster).
Now,
PWInsider
reports
that
he
will
firmly
be
portraying
a
babyface
character
on
TV.

If
that’s
the
case
then
it
would
be
the
first
time
that
Lesnar
will
be
booked
as
a
babyface
for
the
company
since
his
debut
in
2002.
The
WWE
website
roster
still
has
Lesnar
listed
as
a
RAW
Superstar,
as
of
this
writing
but
he
is
likely
to
be
shifting
on
the
blue
brand,
following
this
latest
return.

Lesnar
is
being
teased
for
an
appearance
on
this
week’s
episode
of
SmackDown
on
FOX,
but
WWE
has
not
confirmed
that.
If
he
does
appear
then
this
would
be
his
first
Friday
night
appearance
since
November
1,
2019.
