After a rather long diatribe by John Cena on his loss to The Rock at WrestleMania on Sunday, the crowd at American Airlines Arena nearly blew the roof off the place, as Brock Lesnar made his return to the WWE on Monday for the first time since 2004.
Without saying it verbally on last night's Raw SuperShow, we likely have the main event for WrestleMania 29 next April, as Lesnar delivered an F5 to Cena as he made his way into the ring.
Despite my being one of those excited to see Lesnar back in the WWE, I think it was a bad decision by the former WWE and UFC champion to return to the company that made him famous in the early 2000s.
As Lesnar moves from the Octagon back to the squared circle, it just seems like a bad choice, as he goes from the real fighting in the UFC to the scripted fighting of the WWE.
Even though UFC legend Ken Shamrock made the jump in the 1990s, I think it will be more difficult for Lesnar, as he started in the WWE then made the jump to the UFC and now is coming back to the WWE.
Also, Lesnar's fans from his days in the UFC will talk about him not being able to handle MMA and falling back to professional wrestling, where the competition is far less competitive than the UFC.
With Lesnar signed to make multiple appearances each month for the next year, we’ll have to see if the decision to return to the WWE ends up being positive or negative for him.
So, Bleachers, do you think it was a good or bad decision by Brock Lesnar to return to the WWE after retiring from the UFC at the end of 2011?
