In late December of last year, Brock Lesnar announced his retirement from the UFC following his loss to Alistair Overeem. Now, it seems that Brock may still have a little bit more fight in him. At least in a different forum. According to Dave Meltzer of Wrestling Observer, Lesnar is in Miami, which just so happens to be the location of WrestleMania XXVIII, but there is also a rumor flying around that he has signed a one-year contract with the WWE.
“Lesnar has arrived in Miami [site of tomorrow's event] and arrived with security and a large group of people shielding him from everyone,” Meltzer wrote Saturday, per 5th Round.com. “This is the going story, but not confirmed, that Lesnar has signed a one year deal and will work a more than Undertaker and less than Goldberg type of schedule.”
With one of the best matches in WrestleMania history, Lesnar would most likely be welcomed back with open arms, but will UFC president Dana White have a problem with this change since Brock is still under contract with the mixed martial arts organization? Apparently not. Ariel Helwani sent out a tweet recently with the following response:
And just to be clear, @danawhite didn't know if the rumor is true, just said that IF it's true, he would be ok with it.— Ariel Helwani (@arielhelwani) April 1, 2012
In summary, Triple H going toe-to-toe with The Undertaker, The Rock squaring off against John Cena, and a surprise appearance by Brock Lesnar?! Should make for one hell of a WrestleMania!
