After losing in quick fashion to Alistair Overeem at UFC 141, Brock Lesnar retired from MMA. One can only assume that this sudden retirement will lead him back to where it all started for Brock, WWE.
In three years, Brock accomplished more in WWE than most have accomplished their entire career.
Let’s be honest, Lesnar’s ventures outside WWE have been lackluster at best.
If you blinked once during the 2004 NFL Season, then you missed Lesnar’s small stint with the Minnesota Vikings.
He has had some success within UFC, becoming UFC Heavyweight Champ, but he never really grasped the ranks of the elite UFC fighters who have come before him.
The answer to why Brock hasn’t found great success outside WWE could be that Brock is destined to be a Professional Wrestler.
Not a UFC Fighter. Not a Football Player. A Professional Wrestler.
If you listen to Lesnar in a interview or at UFC Press Conference, its as if he’s a heel cutting a promo on his opponent.
Even though the UFC may someday have their fighters develop personas, much like characters have in WWE, the octagon isn’t the platform for Lesnar needs to truly express his bad-guy persona.
The squared circle, on the other hand, is that platform.
Brock has just about done it all in WWE, but at age 34, he still has so much to offer.
Here are five potential scenarios for a Brock Lesnar return to WWE.
