Sources close to the Lesnar-WWE situation claim his asking price for a return contract is “ridiculous,” which explains why WWE has not shown noticeable interest in reaching a deal. It’s only reasonable that Lesnar expect a substantial paycut after leaving WWE for a failed shot at the NFL.
Although it remains to be seen if a deal between Lesnar and WWE can be reached in time for Sunday, some claim WWE is using the potential of a “Royal Rumble” spot as a way to entice Lesnar to lower his asking price and return to the company. It’s clear that WWE is not opposed to having him back, especially if they could milk a ‘shock’ angle out of it.
