We noted earlier via Slice Wrestling how Vince McMahon negotiated with Brock Lesnar over the weekend about signing a new contract prior to WrestleMania 34 and Lesnar had some demands.

The source then reported that one of the demands ending up being Lesnar retaining the Universal Championship at WrestleMania 34.

The latest update from this source is that the finish to Lesnar vs. Reigns II went the way Vince wanted it to go while keeping in mind about the upcoming booking strategies and Lesnar’s new deal.
