Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer has given further information regarding Brock Lesnar‘s new WWE deal. In writing an article for MMA Fighting, Meltzer stated that Lesnar and the WWE made a deal in secret after it was revealed that Roman Reigns is battling leukemia again after 11 years of being in remission. Meltzer also reports that Brock’s deal will not limit his ability to fight in the UFC and is for multiple shows (hence him regaining the WWE Universal Championship).

“But with Reigns out, Lesnar got a new offer from McMahon to replace Reigns as his top singles champion. Lesnar agreed secretly to the new deal, and won the pro wrestling championship again. The new deal is for multiple shows, but its length of time has been kept secretive. But it is known that Lesnar is scheduled as late as April of next year for WrestleMania.

The deal does allow him to take a UFC fight, but whether Lesnar really will do that during this contractual term with WWE is a bigger question. And for Cormier, with the sands of the hourglass of his career rapidly running out, and him continuing to say he’s done in March after his 40th birthday, the Lesnar fight is far less of a sure thing than it seemed a month ago.”
