WWE issued the following press release to announced the re-signing of Brock Lesnar and a WrestleMania rematch between Lesnar and Roman Reigns in a cage match at the Greatest Royal Rumble event.
WWE Chairman & CEO Vince McMahon announced today that Brock Lesnar has re-signed with WWE. Lesnar’s next appearance is scheduled for the Greatest Royal Rumble event, where he will compete against Roman Reigns™ in a Steel Cage Universal Championship match at the King Abdullah Sports City Stadium in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia on Friday, April 27 at 7:00 p.m. AST.
The Greatest Royal Rumble will stream live on WWE Network and be available on pay-per-view outside of the Middle East with regional broadcast information forthcoming.
The event will also feature the first-ever 50-man Greatest Royal Rumble match, John Cena™ vs. Triple H™ and six other championship matches.

It is the first event as part of a long-term partnership between WWE and the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.
Powell’s POV: It’s unclear whether Lesnar re-signed a long term deal or if this is just a short-team deal that will get them through this event and the title change. Will Pruett are discussing this situation now on PWAudio.net.
