Being the ‘Beast’ that he is, he immediately lets his thoughts known when the WWE Universe witnessed a staredown between Reigns and Lesnar. However, not that he is back with Vince’s company; the fans are assuming how long will the former champ stay in the company?

As per Fightful Select, Lesnar’s new WWE contract is believed to be for “roughly a year and a half,” which means the WWE Universe may expect Brock to see through early 2023.

Lesnar’s new WWE contract states he has eight matches under his belt before leaving the company again; hence, it looks like Lesnar will fight Reigns for the title as his first match.

With Paul Heyman in the mix, the WWE Universe is in for a treat. However, with only eight matches in his new contract, we might not see a rematch between Roman and Lesnar, but no one can predict the genius of Vince McMahon.

Brock Lesnar might portray a babyface character

As per PWInsider, Lesnar is firmly on the babyface side of the SmackDown internal roster now. This would be Lesnar’s first appearance on the Blue Brand since November 1, 2019.

This would be the first time Lesnar has technically worked as a babyface for the company since the early 2000s.

And now with Heyman siding with Roman, we might see Brock cutting his promos all by himself like he used to do in his earlier WWE days.

The WWE still can focus on some dream matches now when Lesnar is staying for eight fights, maybe a fight with ‘The Almighty’ Bobby Lashley?
