When Brock Lesnar returned to the WWE after Wrestlemania this year he did so to a phenomenal fan reaction, I think most people where surprised that he would actually return to the WWE and I for one was pleasantly surprised as well. Brock really had the ball in his court when it came to negotiating a contract and it seemed like he nabbed a pretty sweet deal with the WWE, a limited amount of appearances for what was reported around 5 million dollars. The question is how many times can Brock get a sweet deal like that with the company, we all know his contract is up at next years Wrestlemania, and the WWE may be Lesnar's last option.
Brock was very vocal in his desire to play football for the NFL in 2004 when he left the WWE, he tried out for the Minnesota Vikings and it turned out to be a bust as Lesnar didn't make the cut. Lesnar then decided to do something that seemed to be right up his alley, MMA fighting for the UFC. The relationship turned out to be a good one as Lesnar, who loathed traveling, wasn't on the road much at all and he could still make big money. The relationship also helped the UFC as Brock was able to take his marketability from the WWE who had made him a mega-star and give UFC some notoriety. Long story short Lesnar lost an important match and decided he was done with MMA. As we all know Lesnar made his return after this years Wrestlemania.
I highly doubt Lesnar is going to be able to negotiate the contract that he was able to get this year, I can already feel a lot of his momentum draining as the crowds just aren't as crazy for him as they where when he returned. But what choice does Lesnar have? Brock has a great look and there's a small possibility he could do good in action movies, he's definitely no Rock though and I don't see him going that route. If Lesnar want's to work anywhere where he can make decent money his last option is the WWE. Of course there is always UFC again but Lesnar stated he was done with that and I honestly don't see him going back, he had a better contract with them then the WWE and he still left, it seemed he just wasn't cut out for it in the end. The ball will definitely be in the WWE's court next year and I expect Lesnar to be working a lot more appearances then he did this year, I do expect Lesnar to resign as well. It seems like WWE has become his last option which is good for us because he's a phenomenal talent, if he in fact does resign it will be nice to seem wrestling full time without some lame storyline of him getting "fired". Only time will tell though.
