If you're holding your breath for a Brock Lesnar return to WWE, then you should probably just exhale to avoid blacking out.

It's unlikely to happen.

Lesnar left WWE for a reason. He walked away from millions of dollars because he was unhappy with the lifestyle that comes with being a professional wrestler. He doesn't like to constantly be in the spotlight. He also hates being away from his family for the majority of the year.

The lifestyle of a professional wrestler hasn't changed much since Lesnar walked away.

The 33 year old Minnesota native was able to tolerate the UFC lifestyle. Sure, he was still in the spotlight, but it wasn't a weekly thing. He built a gym not too far from his home so that he could train in seclusion and be close to his wife and kid.

By signing with WWE again, he gives all that up.

Most wrestling fans aren't going to be able to fathom the idea of turning down Vince McMahon and a WWE contract. However, the life simply is not for everyone. If you can make money elsewhere, it's a lot easier to be away from the wrestling business. Just ask Dwayne Johnson and Steve Austin.

Former WWE commentator Jim Ross knows Lesnar a lot better than wrestling fans do. Even he is skeptical of the rumors. Ross does not feel that now is the right time for Lesnar to leave UFC and return to WWE.
