The news spread like wildlife as soon as Brock made the announcement. WWE published the following on their website:

WWE World Heavyweight Champion Brock Lesnar revealed he re-signed with WWE on ESPN’s SportsCenter during a March 24 interview with Michelle Beadle.

During the build-up to Lesnar’s title defense against Roman Reigns at WrestleMania 31, Paul Heyman admitted his client’s contract was set to expire soon after The Show of Shows. Heyman even threatened Lesnar was willing to take the title wherever he pleased — including various mixed martial arts promotions — leaving Lesnar’s post-WrestleMania status up in the air.

The Beast Incarnate returned to WWE in 2012 after an eight-year hiatus, during which time he competed in UFC. Lesnar captured his fourth WWE World Heavyweight Championship at SummerSlam 2014 and ended The Undertaker’s legendary undefeated Streak at WrestleMania 30. He will defend the WWE World Heavyweight Championship at WrestleMania against Reigns on March 29 on WWE Network.

Richard Gray published an exclusive yesterday stating that Brock Lesnar was going to have a meeting with Vince McMahon before WWE Monday Night Raw to pitch him a contract to stay with the company. This contract was said to be the "most generous WWE will be offering and any offer after his contract expires would be less lucrative".

With Brock Lesnar now staying with WWE, the outcome between Brock Lesnar and Roman Reigns at Wrestlemania 31 has become even more unpredictable.
