Why We Will See Brock Lesnar Back in Pro Wrestling Sooner Rather Than Later

G DAnalyst IIIJanuary 17, 2012

Ever since his teenage years, Brock Lesnar has been involved in some type of sport.

Whether it was his dominant years of wrestling at the University of Minnesota or his short stint in the National Football League, Lesnar has been active and pursuing some type of dream for as long as we can remember.

As we know, following his loss to Alistair Overeem at UFC 141, Lesnar shocked the world when he announced that he would be stepping away from the sport of MMA for good.

Lesnar had officially retired.

While Lesnar has certainly participated in many organizations over the course of his professional career, none have compared to the rigorous sport of MMA. During his time in MMA, Lesnar endured the hardest battle of his life both in and outside of the Octagon.

While Lesnar has officially declared himself a retired athlete of the UFC, it doesn't necessarily translate to a complete retirement from the world of sports. In fact, it's plausible to think Lesnar could be returning to the sport of pro wrestling, which ultimately catapulted his name to an elite stage to begin with.

Not only will Lesnar continue to build his name, but he'll be less likely to endure a serious or career-ending injury.

With respect to pro wrestling, Lesnar will now have a predetermined outcome where he can anticipate every move that will unfold. In result, Lesnar won't endure the unexpected striking from Cain Velasquez or the vicious knees of Alistair Overeem.

With a burning desire to prove he can still compete in the world of sports, fans shouldn't be the slightest bit surprised to see Lesnar returning to the professional stage.

And, if he does, it will be to the WWE.

Brock Lesnar will return to pro wrestling sooner rather than later.
