WWE Paying Brock Lesnar Extra Money To Work Hell in a Cell 2015, Seth Rollins Sets New Record

According to reports from Wrestling Observer, WWE is paying Brock Lesnar extra money to work Hell in a Cell 2015.

This was done because Lesnar’s contracted dates were already planned out, so WWE had to negotiate with him to work additional dates. This was done because Vince McMahon previously wanted to end the Lesnar-Taker feud at WrestleMania 32, however he decided to do that next month at Hell in a Cell 2015.

Wrestling Observer also reports that Seth Rollins set yet another record as he became the longest reigning WWE World Heavyweight Champion among the men who won the title by cashing-in Money in the Bank contract. He has now held the title for 184 days now (as of today). The record was previously held by The Miz, who cashed-in to win the WWE Title back in 2010, at 160 days.

Speaking of Brock Lesnar, 4 names have been shortlisted as possible opponents for Brock Lesnar at WrestleMania 32 – Roman Reigns, Seth Rollins, The Rock or “Stone Cold” Steve Austin. It should be noted that Stone Cold has denied these rumors of him returning at WrestleMania 32 to face Lesnar. Brock Lesnar faced Roman Reigns in the main event of WrestleMania 31 in one of the most hard-hitting matches of 2015. The idea behind doing the rematch might be that there wasn’t a clean finish as Rollins cashed-in and won the title.

If Lesnar faces Rollins, it would likely be for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship and this depends on whether Rollins can hang on to it till WrestleMania 32. Lesnar was scheduled to face The Rock at WrestleMania 30 last year but the idea was dropped when Rock got injured during his match with John Cena at WrestleMania 29.
