Regarding the new business deal between Brock Lesnar and WWE, the latest is that the contract hasn’t been signed but the details on the deal have been worked out and people close to it are talking like it’s done. The deal hasn’t been announced yet because there are so many parties involved – Lesnar, Paul Heyman, Vince McMahon & WWE, Dana White & UFC, as well as others. If one of those parties has a change of heart, the whole deal will fall apart. As we have noted before, this is not a deal for Lesnar and Heyman to return to WWE TV, the storylines or anything like that.
The WWE RAW crew has returned to the United States after wrapping their Australian and New Zealand tour. CM Punk has resumed tweeting now that he’s back home. Punk responded to ESPN’s Jim Rome offering him some air-time to finish his rant from RAW two weeks ago. Punk wrote: “Okay, so I missed some stuff. Mike Rome? Let’s do this.” Punk later corrected the name, Jim Rome and said “somebody get me on ESPN.”
