Brock Lesnar’s WWE contract expired after WrestleMania, and the company soon had to take his merchandise off their store. WWE also had to remove Sting’s merchandise, and then the Icon ended up in AEW. Is Lesnar going the same direction?
While speaking to Wrestling Inc, Gerald Brisco admitted that Brock Lesnar could arrive in AEW. You never know what can happen, because everyone has a price.
Brisco went on to say that Brock Lesnar is very smart with his money. He is frugal, but he also commands a very large payday. If AEW were to offer Lesnar a ton of money then Vince McMahon would certainly have a chance to match it.
“If the money is right, and I believe this with all my soul that Brock Lesnar would not do it unless he was offered one of those .. as Ted DiBiase said, ‘Everybody has their damn price.’”
“You talk about frugal. He is one of the most frugal guys there is on the face of the Earth. Did he save us money? Yes, every damn penny of it, but I think it would have to be an extreme circumstance, and I think he would pick up the phone and call Vince about the amount of money that he got offered and see if Vince is going to go to do anything. And honestly, I think Vince would do something.”
AEW has pulled in some surprising names like Sting, Mike Tyson, and Shaq. Brock Lesnar would be a huge notch in AEW’s belt. The big question is how high AEW and WWE are willing to go in case they start a bidding war for the Beast Incarnate.
