Former WWE Champion Brock Lesnar was interviewed on Tuesday's edition of The Fight Show. Many questions were asked, many questions were answered. There was a discussion about his new autobiography, co-written by Paul Heyman.

However, one of the most interesting debates were about his wrestling career. He said about how he really enjoyed performing in the arenas and talked about the positive memories he had, such as winning the WWE Championship at SummerSlam in 2002, taking it away from The Rock.

He mentioned when he wrestled Kurt Angle and nearly broke his neck, impressing many fans and colleagues alike. He gives WWE credit to building him up to what he is today, because without them, Lesnar probably wouldn't be as successful as he is now.

Then, in what may have stunned many, the man formerly billed as "The Next Big Thing" announced that if an opportunity arises to make a one-off appearance in WWE, he would certainly consider it. He said that while he may be done with wrestling pretty much entirely, he would not rule out a return.

His exact words on the subject are this:

"I want to get back in the octagon. If the day ever came if there was an opportunity to make a one-time appearance for wrestling—ya know, timing is everything. If everything was right, maybe so. But for right now, c'mon, I'm an ultimate fighter and this is where I want to be."
