- As we have noted, Brock Lesnar negotiated a unique contract for his WWE return as he will be allowed to wear sponsors on his trunks and the t-shirts he wears each week. A source reports that Lesnar insisted this be part of the deal. He is the first performer Vince McMahon has ever allowed contractually to do so.
- It's said that with the success of WrestleMania 28 coming out this past week, the chances of a rematch between John Cena and The Rock at WrestleMania 29 have increased. As of this week, WrestleMania 29 is scheduled to be headlined by The Rock vs. either Cena or Brock Lesnar.
Several factors will play into that decision, mainly where Lesnar stands at the end of this year, if he's better for business over Cena and more. WWE officials are reportedly unsure of Lesnar's future and how hot he will be come next January. While they originally wanted to have the WrestleMania 29 main event announced by now, word now is that it won't be decided on until around November of this year.
