We were able to find out the following details regarding Brock Lesnar’s contract status here at Wrestle Royalty:
– Lesnar retaining the Championship at Wrestlemania was a decision made by Vince about 5 days prior to the event. Very few people were aware of this change in plans and it took 99% of the workers by surprise.
– The reason for the change is that Vince wants Reigns to win the Championship in front of a “more receptive” audience. Vince thinks the Saudi Arabian audience will be more on his side than the Wrestlemania crowd.
– The new contract is a temporary 30-day deal that is set to expire on May 7th, 2018 at 11:59pm EST. That deal was signed just prior to Wrestlemania.
If we uncover any other information, we will be sure to pass it along to you as soon as we get it.
Jester’s Jest: I don’t believe the international crowd will honestly be receptive at all of Brock dropping the Title to Reigns. If anything, I believe they will be more put off by it and completely turn against Roman. The international crowds have a history of being much more vocal and against WWE Stars they don’t like, as we have seen in the past.
