Backstage news on Brock Lesnar signing

  1. WWE Forums is giving away a copy of WWE 2K18 for any platform! More info: WWE 2K18 Giveaway (PS4, Xbox One, Steam)
  2. It wouldn't make sense for them to give Lesnar a contact of a lower pay rate. I don't think Lesnar would allow that either. I also don't see much in bringing Lesnar in for an additional year if he's going to be as infrequent as he is now.
  3. From a business stand point (IMO) paying 5million for a guy to make 15 or so appearances a year is madness. They have to have him make more appearances at PPVs if they want a decent return.
  4. It is madness and Lesnar now has leverage with the buyrate so I highly doubt he'll be lowering his pay rate. This is why I think the whole Lesnar thing should just end this year. It doubt it'll have the same value next year anyway.
  5. The only way they're giving lower money is lower dates to appear.
  6. What was the Summerslam buyrate?

    I'd like to see Lesnar if he had more appearances on his contract.
  8. Good buyrate then, mainly in the US. Massive improvement.
  9. Give him the same amount, and add at least 10 more appearances. Otherwise, :gtfo:
  10. I agree.
  11. If he proved that he can sell PPVs, why would they lower the pay rate? He should just ask at least the same amount, possibly more. They should try to bring him back for longer time and put him in a good storyline.
  12. If he resigns, I hope he actually appears for more dates than he has been. His contract this year killed a lot of my excitement for him personally. The Cena feud was fine because he appeared every week, but the Triple H feud lost a lot of steam for me because he broke Triple H's arm (great segment) but then vanished and they had to have Heyman appear on the show every now and then 'suing' the WWE just to remind us that the feud was still going. And now he's gone again, probably until Wrestlemania.
