While his time in UFC could be seen as a failure, there is still plenty of time for Brock Lesnar to return to glory in the WWE.

What's more, there would be no better place for him to do that than at the Royal Rumble as the 30th and final participant.

Imagine it, folks. All the remaining participants in the Rumble—the best in the business at this point—are all hitting each other and really starting to drag. The crowd loves it, but they’re not losing their minds like everyone thought they would.

All of the sudden, the clock starts counting down to the final participant in the match and then the lights go out. Darkness sets in and the crowd knows that something is going down. The lengthy darkness makes fans in the arena flip out and the fans at home rise to their feet.

Boom—Brock Lesnar’s music hits and the international superstar stands on the entrance ramp looking as crazy as any of the fans could ever imagine.

For this to work properly, one other participant will have to reappear as well. That is, the Undertaker.

With the dead man returning at No. 28 and Lesnar at No. 30, the WWE would be able to have those two men eliminate each other and brawl to the back. This would then start their feud for WrestleMania and give a different star a chance to shine.

It has been obvious that Undertaker and Lesnar have been dancing around the idea of a feud, but there would be no bigger stage in the world to pull it off than at WrestleMania.

While Lesnar’s appeal may not be what it would have been if he was a bigger success in the UFC, he can still draw millions of views to a pay-per-view.

As they say in the WWE Universe, “Never say never in the WWE.”
