Former WWE World Champion Brock Lesnar has filed a lawsuit against WWE. Word has it that Lesnar has been hell-bent on getting a lawsuit filed because WWE is allegedly holding him back from making a living due to the “no compete clause” in his WWE contract.

Lesnar signed a new contract after his WrestleMania appearance agreeing to the no compete clause. He decided he no longer wanted to wrestle and wanted to pursue a career in the NFL. While making the preseason squad for the Minnesota Vikings, he was cut before the end of the season.

Now, a no compete clause prevents him from working for any other major competitor, including other professional wrestling organizations or professional fighting promotions such as UFC and PRIDE. That clause does not expire until June 30 in the year 2010. We also learned that the no compete clause covers the world, not just the U.S.

Last week we reported that Lesnar was making ridiculous demands regarding the terms of his return to WWE when he contacted them a couple months ago. The company was fine with letting Lesnar out of his contract because he agreed to the no compete clause.
