Lensar And WWE Settle Lawsuit

Published

on

The Twin Cities Business Journal reported today that World Wrestling Entertainment and former WWE champion Brock Lesnar have agreed to a settlement of Lesnar’s lawsuit against the company.

Terms of the settlement were not announced. Lesnar’s attorney David Bradley Olsen commented, “Although the settlement with WWE does not give Brock the clear-cut court victory he was looking for, it does provide him with the certainty he needs to pursue new ventures while he is still in his athletic prime.”

Lesnar filed a lawsuit in February 2005 claiming that a 2004 agreement he signed when seeking his WWE release in order to pursue a National Football League career wrongly prohibited him from attempting to earn money in other ventures. The legal case went back and forth for months, with WWE attempting to prevent Lesnar from appearing in the ring for New Japan Pro Wrestling, where he holds the IWGP championship. At one point, Lesnar had even visited WWE Headquarters and agreed to verbal terms for a WWE return, only to change his mind and sign a deal with Inoki Sports.

Olsen noted that Lesnar is not looking to return to WWE, “at this time.”

IWGP United States Champion and NWA World Heavyweight Champion Cody Rhodes may be on his way back to the WWE, with some of his friends, when he officially hits free agency at the start of the 2019 year.

Shortly after appearing at New Japan’s Fighting Spirit Unleashed event this past Sunday, Rhodes spoke to WrestlingInc and discussed a potential return to WWE in January, along with the possibility of the Bullet Club joining him.

“Everyone has different opinions and it’s hard to get the opinion of someone when it’s, ‘Hey what do you wanna do? What is the next thing you wanna do?’” Rhodes said, adding that; “There’s five of us [Bullet Club] that’s a core unit that plan to stick together, and hopefully we can really do that.

I don’t want to make any judgments as I’ve had a great time with these guys. I’d like The Elite to continue and I’d like to bring you guys something like an All In sequel.”

Cody and the Bullet Club to WWE is a hot rumor, and one that will be constantly discussed leading up to the moment he officially becomes a free agent on January 1st, 2019.
