The Rock Reportedly Signs Contract with WWE, News on Lesnar’s Negotiations

– After signing Brock Lesnar to a one-year deal, it’s also believed that WWE signed The Rock to another one-year deal that will carry through WrestleMania 29 next year.

With Lesnar and The Rock headlining next year and the history of the New York market, it’s possible that WrestleMania 29 will be an immediate sellout – something that WWE hasn’t done since 2007.

Regarding Lesnar’s deal, it’s said that Vince McMahon was agreeable on the money side but the number of dates that Lesnar would be working was an issue. Both sides ended up giving a little and Lesnar will be appearing for between 30 and 40 dates leading up to WrestleMania 29.

    Just had a thought. With undertake saying he though HBK to be the better out of him and Triple H you think this will lead to a WM match between the two? Decided once and for all who is the better out of the two… They would produce an amazing match!

    The Rock vs The UnderTaker Team Bring it vs The Streak

  • heyfit

    Flair vs HHH with HBK as the ref at WM next year in addition to taker-lesnar, punk-bryan, rock-orton and cena-austin

    Punk vs Rock or Punk vs Lesnar for the WWE title at Summer Slam would be great.

  • Brock being back in great! But he be gone again after next mania unless wwe keep paying big bucks wouldent make sence Brock being at mania 29 then not mania 30 the anniversary show, But he don’t like travel and seriously needs to train hard bc he is far from the Brock lesnar aka next big thing 2002.he should of died twice which did effect his UFC career, I like Brock lots but trust him not at all certanlly don’t think he is here for fans brock is a business man and sees dollars

    Id like a Y2J-rocky feud again, they both really brought the best on mic skills out of each other.

    either way i want the old rocky not this one, i just got done watching some old dvds and thats the rocky on mic i want. also has anyone actually thought of how a PG brock is going to be? people forget, bring back all the former stars you want, but in PG era they are going to be watered down

    The Rock and Brock Connection. 🙂

    Wow. Why would WWE sign the butt buddies to one year deals.

  • Nin

    Well looks like the rock is comming back part time so he kept his word so it going to be cool seeing rock and brock again

    New York fans are smart. They will riot knowing that both Rock’s and Lesnar’s contract expire shortly after Wrestlemania. You know, EXACTLY like at WM20 when the same thing happened between Goldberg and Lesnar. WWE is a classic case of history repeating itself. ::facepalm::

    WWE getting good again by giving big names the FREEDOM of showing up for big events without the HARD LIFE on the road. The Rock n Brock could be around for the next few years and that would make wrestling n especially WRESTLEMANIA alot more special
