- 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.
