Future plans for Brock Lesnar:
If Brock Lesnar signs on for another year WWE are hoping to put him in storylines with Randy Orton and CM Punk. The plan would be to turn CM Punk face and put Heyman back with Lesnar.
As previously reported WWE have offered Lesnar a similar one year deal that would only see him take part in a couple of feuds. His current deal expires at Wrestlemania, which suggests he won’t be given a victory at the mega-event unless he puts pen to paper beforehand.
