Brock Lesnar’s new WWE contract is said to carry him until early 2023.
Lesnar returned to WWE at the end of Saturday’s SummerSlam show to face WWE Universal Champion Roman Reigns, right after Reigns retained John Cena. It was his first appearance since dropping the WWE title to Drew McIntyre at WrestleMania 36 in 2020, and since his last contract expired in the summer of 2020.
In an update, Lesnar’s new contract in WWE is believed to be for “approximately a year and a half,” according to combat choice. He should hold Lesnar until early 2023, possibly at WrestleMania 39.
It is also believed that the new contract includes at least 8 matches. It was noted that the terms of the contract are open to change with further negotiations.
The first match under Lesnar’s new contract in WWE is expected to be against Reigns, with Paul Heyman in much of the construction. There is no information on when that match will take place. Lesnar was rumored against Reigns for the WWE Crown Jewel in October, but it has not been confirmed that Lesnar will be working on this show.
It was reported earlier today that WWE is moving forward with Lesnar as a lovable kid on the blue brand. He’s being teased for Friday’s SmackDown, but the show hasn’t been officially announced. This will be Lesnar’s first blue brand appearance since November 1, 2019. It should be noted that he is still listed on the RAW roster on the official WWE website as of this writing.
