Brock Lesnar has re-signed with WWE and his WrestleMania rematch with Roman Reigns is all set.

Just one day after Brock Lesnar successfully defended his Universal Championship against Roman Reigns at WrestleMania 34 in New Orleans, WWE made a major announcement on Monday afternoon that Lesnar has re-signed with the company.

The terms of the deal have not been announced, but it was thought by many that Lesnar would be leaving WWE following WrestleMania, perhaps heading back to UFC. However, with his surprise victory over Roman Reigns at the biggest show of the year, a match that nearly everyone thought Roman was going to win after essentially being groomed to do so for the past year, nobody knew quite what to make of the situation.

That situation has a lot more clarity today as it was also announced that the WrestleMania rematch between the two will take place at the Greatest Royal Rumble event that is set for April 27 at the King Abdullah Sports City Stadium in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia. If you thought things got physical on Sunday night, note that this time around, Lesnar and Reigns will battle inside the confines of a steel cage.

Also on the card that night will be a 50-man Royal Rumble Match, John Cena vs. Triple H and six more title matches. The event will air at noon Eastern time on the WWE Network. The addition of Lesnar vs. Reigns to this show will certainly bring some extra attention and should be quite the spectacle.
