Brock Lesnar will have sponsors on his ring gear in WWE

This is unprecedented, but Brock Lesnar will actually be allowed to wear sponsorhip logos on his ring gear while working for WWE.  Dave Meltzer had this to say on the Observer site Monday.
Yes, Lesnar is getting to wear clothing that has sponsors, which was a hell of a deal he cut for himself and he's the first person in history to have that right under a WWE contract.
This should illustrate to everyone how desperate Vince McMahon was to get a deal done with Brock.

I can understand why as Brock is one of the few guys that should have a big impact on the product. The way he left WWE at the top of the heap was completely unsatisfying and I would hazard a guess that most wrestling fans are as excited about his return as I am.

Still, I am floored that Vince is allowing this. That being said, if it was a deal-breaker then I am glad he is.
