Brock Lesnar resigns with the WWE

In a surprising move, especially given the fervor around Brock Lesnar's much-anticipated return to the UFC, but Lesnar has re-signed and has already been lined up to defend his belt once again — in a steel cage match.

WWE Universal Champion Brock Lesnar surprisingly beat Roman Reigns in the main event of Wrestlemania 34 on Sunday, and despite a reported altercation with WWE chairman/CEO Vince McMahon, Lesnar has decided to resign with WWE.


Lesnar is already scheduled for the Greatest Royal Rumble event, defending his Universal title against Roman Reigns in a Steel Cage Match at the King Abdullah Sports City Stadium in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia on April 27, according to the WWE press release.

The news, however, doesn't mean Lesnar won't fight in the UFC, which he is still signed to and a move will happen, per UFC president Dana White.


Reigns, who everyone expected to win the title at Wrestlemania to seal his coronation as a face of the WWE, will have another shot in less than three weeks. McMahon now presents a situation where he can set up a fuller set-up for Reigns on a brand-new stage in Saudi Arabia as a representation of a new era.

If they continue to put me in matches with Brock Lesnar, the story will end with me becoming the Universal Champion!
