While we no longer cover the frequent blogs of Jim Ross, he dropped the following nugget of information about WWE World Heavyweight Champion Brock Lesnar in a piece posted last Monday evening:
Sources are saying that it looks more promising that Brock Lesnar could well stay with WWE past WrestleMania due to concerns over long term health affects of competing in MMA specifically concussion oriented issues later in one's life. gain, these are 'sources' and how reliable they are can only be judged after WM31 and following the status of the former UFC Heavyweight Champion. One thing is certain, if UFC believes, and rightfully so in my view, that CM Punk will sell PPV's for at least his first two fights then what would a healthy Brock Lesnar mean to the UFC brand in a time where no combat sport company has a plethora of bona fide star power that can move the needle on the pay per view business.

What Jim Ross is hearing is something we’ve heard as well. While many believe Lesnar will leave WWE after Wrestlemania 31 next month, Vince McMahon is confident he will re-sign. In fact, we reported here on WrestlingNewsWorld.com Premium on January 30, 2015 that Vince is convinced he’ll get Brock to re-sign, almost “to a delusional degree.”
As things currently stand, Lesnar is booked for the Raw after Wrestlemania 31 but will be a free agent after that unless a contract extension is signed.
