It was earlier reported that WWE Universal Champion Brock Lesnar signed a new contract on Sunday, April 8, 2018, before his match against Roman Reigns at WrestleMania 34. While that new contract allowed Lesnar to retain the title at the Showcase of the Immortals, Lesnar would successfully defend his title in a controversial finish against Reigns in a Steel Cage Match at WWE Greatest Royal Rumble on April 27 in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia. The Beast is set to defend his title at Money In The Bank on June 17, 2018, according to Cageside Seats.

Wrestling Observer Newsletter earlier noted that Lesnar’s new contract does expire before SummerSlam in August. However, it now appears that WWE might have a dream match for Brock on the table if his contract runs through SummerSlam on August 2019.

On May 1, 2018, Dave Meltzer reported that WWE used the prospect of a match against Lesnar as a way to entice ECW-TNA-MMA star Bobby Lashley to return to WWE after 11 years.

Although WWE announced Lesnar signing his new contract the day after WrestleMania 34, fans wondered whether the new deal was just to get Lesnar to the Greatest Royal Rumble where The Beast would finally drop the Universal Championship to Roman Reigns. With Brock having already defended against Samoa Joe, Braun Strowman, Roman Reigns, a fresh opponent like Lashley would clearly be a winner. It is to be noted that Lesnar had already left WWE when Lashley first began rising through the ranks in 2005.

On another note, The Conqueror is not scheduled to perform at Backlash on May 6, 2018 which would bring him one step closer to breaking CM Punk’s whopping record of longest WWE reign at 434 days. As of this writing, Punk had defended the WWE Championship 22 times whereas Lesnar has ranked up only 6 defenses.
