Brock Lesnar: WWE's Championship Businessman

Brock Lesnar: WWE's Championship Businessman

Shane McMahon squared up with Brock Lesnar following The Beast Incarnate's argument with McMahon's father, WWE Chairman Vince McMahon, after WrestleMania 34, Wrestling Observer Radio's Dave Meltzer (h/t WrestlingInc's Marc Middleton) reported Tuesday.

That did not turn out to be the case, however, as Lesnar defeated the battered and bloody Reigns to retain his championship.

Have the WWE's decision-makers finally lost faith in Reigns? It is a possibility that Lesnar would only work this one match under the contract even though the contract is not listed as a one-match deal, with the likelihood of the contract expiring as early as August, even before WWE SummerSlam.

Lesnar was expected to lose his title to Reigns on Sunday night at WrestleMania 34 due to his WWE contract expiring at 11:59 p.m. Lesnar pulled off the win and sent the wrestling world into a frenzy.

The Greatest Royal Rumble event will take place at the King Abdullah Sports City Stadium in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia on April 27. Lesnar won the match after his sixth F5, which he hit when Reigns went for a spear. This will provide him more money per appearance and also allow him one fight with UFC, though this is seemingly likely to come after the contract ends.

At the "Greatest Royal Rumble" event, The Big Dog will have another opportunity to capture the Universal Title from The Beast. Roman Reigns found out about it on the day of WrestleMania, and had thought he would be winning the title from Lesnar up until that point.

Given the way this is all playing out, it wouldn't be that surprising if Lesnar spends the next few years competing only in the UFC. Fans continue to wonder why Lesnar is still teasing a fight in the UFC despite still being with WWE.

He said: "Yeah, Brock Lesnar's coming back".
