Brock Lesnar is one of those superstars who WWE deems valuable enough to bring in part-time to fight a couple matches a year, but what would it take to get him to wrestle a full schedule?

A full schedule would include house shows, TV tapings and pay-per-views as well as press for the company and charity events.

Lesnar did the full-time thing during his first three-year run with the company, and it burned him out to the point where he had to leave and try other things.

The NFL did not work out for him, so he made his way to UFC and became the biggest draw in the company.

After some health issues, his UFC career took a hit, and he retired from the sport following his last loss to Alistair Overeem.

This sent the Internet into a frenzy about what he would do next, with the most popular option being a WWE return.

When Lesnar showed up following WrestleMania and attacked John Cena, nobody quite knew what to expect from this WWE run, but we soon found out he would only be wrestling a handful of matches over the course of a year.

While his name is certainly worth bringing him in for a few high-profile feuds, we have to wonder if a full-time return would ever be in the cards for the multi-sport success story.

Lesnar is now a family man and has a farm he operates, so taking his schedule and making wrestling hsi top priority might not be in the cards.

There is also nothing saying it is impossible. Money is a huge motivator, and WWE might be able to make an offer for Lesnar to come back, perhaps on a reduced schedule similar to what HBK had.

Working just TV tapings and PPVs with the sporadic house show match would allow Lesnar to spend the bulk of his time with family as he would go on the road with WWE a couple days a week.

There is a lot Lesnar could do to help WWE as a more active employee and having him come back full-time should be something WWE strives for.
