Brock Lesnar made his shocking return to the WWE on the night after WrestleMania and delivered an F-5 to John Cena to end Raw SuperShow.

On the heels of Lesnar returning to the WWE, reports suggest that another UFC competitor may be considering the option of making a run in the WWE after his deal with the MMA organization is up.

From WrestlingInc.com:

MMAHeat.com producer Karyn Bryant is in Sweden for the UFC event there this weekend. She interviewed MMA veteran Tito Ortiz earlier and said that during the interview, Ortiz hinted at a career with WWE once his UFC contract is up.

Ortiz would not be the first to go from the UFC to the WWE. MMA legend Ken Shamrock joined the WWE in 1997, before going on to win the Intercontinental and tag team titles during his time in the company.

During his mixed martial arts career, the former UFC light heavyweight champion has amassed an overall record of 16-10-1, but has lost five of his last six fights over the past four years.

Over the years, Ortiz has made multiple appearances inside a wrestling ring. In 2005, with TNA, he served as the special guest referee for two NWA championship matches that saw AJ Styles and Rhino win the coveted title.

With the possibility of Ortiz making the jump from the UFC to the WWE, what chances do you think the “Huntington Beach Bad Boy” has of being a success in professional wrestling?
