Reddit user MetsFan4Ever, who is a former WWE backstage worker that has broken several WWE stories in the past and uploaded show scripts on Reddit, reports that Brock Lesnar's new WWE deal is reportedly for $3 million / year for 3 years. This would be a notable pay cut from the rumored $5 million / year he has been rumored to have been making since returning to the company in 2011.

We noted last week that MetsFan4Ever stated that with Roman Reigns not receiving the type of crowd reaction that the company had expected, Triple H had been pushing the idea of having Lesnar retain the WWE Championship at WrestleMania this Sunday to Vince McMahon. The idea would be for Lesnar to continue to make limited television appearances while holding the title. WWE would also elevate the U.S. and Intercontinental titles at WrestleMania by putting them on John Cena and Daniel Bryan, respectively. Those titles would headline house shows and pay-per-views where Lesnar is not scheduled.

MetsFan4Ever now says that Vince is on board with Lesnar retaining, Cena winning the U.S. title and either Sheamus or Daniel Bryan winning the Intercontinental title. Dean Ambrose is apparently in line to get a big push heading into SummerSlam.

He also said that he was told that Reigns is being compared to Lex Luger and his WWF push in 1993 and early 1994. Luger received a huge push and was pencilled in to win the WWE title at WrestleMania X, however he failed to get over as a top babyface and was moved to the mid-card with Bret Hart going on to win the belt.

Once again, take this as a rumor for now. Even if it is true, as we've seen with other company plans, they can literally change at the last minute.
Seems like This MetsFan guy is Triple H trying to get over with the smarks :lol

Anyway, I'm hoping Vince finally wakes up and realizes a babyface who is getting booed on his chase of his first WWE title is not something you want, especially @ a WrestleMania main event.

Slow down the Reigns train (push) and let people choose him to be a top guy not vice versa.

Yup, Reigns post WM is well on his way to being Rybacked, but just like Ryback he'll be stuck in the mid-card telling people he's going to be the guy "one day" but that one day sadly will never come.

Oh he's not stupid, he's a shrewd businessman, even if he took a WWE paycut he'd have made sure they give him a very high % of merchandise sales and greater freedom to select or cancel dates as and when HE sees fit.

Maybe that's in exchange for him keeping the title for at least the rest of 2015?

Because he doesn't want to go to UFC? What else is he going to do, nothing?

Long term security. 3 years at 3m is better than one year in UFC at 5m.

Bryan headlining as IC champion :mark:

Brock retaining :mark:

Ambrose getting a big push :mark:

So the deal he "could not refuse" is less pay with the same schedule.I don't buy it.

Well, i hope so but....

Based on what evidence do you know he's not? 1 report?

Because I have 4 months of programming that back up the claim that he is.
Programming in which vinces #1 choice was expected to go back to ufc, the moment brock signed again everything went back up in the air.
How do you know vince wants brock?
He pays him MILLIONS of dollars to work every few months for 20 minutes or so..
You think brock signed back up for millions of dollars so that vince could have him in a feud with sheamus?
You think he signed again to go feud with cena for the us title?
