Brock Lesnar has signed a new contract with WWE to remain with them for multiple years.

While terms have not been disclosed, I’m being told it’s believed Lesnar signed a two year agreement. The deal is still a part-time agreement, where he'll work limited dates under a hefty full-time downside guarantee. Merchandise was a huge issue on an extension but it'll take us some time to find out what got done there.

This is actually Brock’s third extension since returning on a part time basis in April 2012.
