According to the latest episode of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, WWE is planning to have the storyline be that Lesnar is, in fact, leaving and that he is being downplayed on the way out, so it won’t come across as such a big loss.

In addition, the company is to try and get a babyface reaction for Reigns as the guy who beats Lesnar and sends him off into the sunset.
Part of this plan was set in motion when fans were not happy that Lesnar beat Kane in 36 seconds at a recent Live Event in Chicago.
I don’t know if there are truth to any of the rumors that Lesnar is leaving, but either way, this is a good story for the company to go with. Anytime that the lines between fiction and reality can be blurred, it makes for excellent television; which is important leading up to the biggest show of the year.
