    Lesnar won't do wrestling. He's a big deal in MMA and no way Dana lets him do fake fighting now. This isn't Japan where guys can do both without anybody caring.

    brock got 400k just for one fight, so he can fight 2-3 times a year and make the million he would make by going out there every night for wwe. plus he just likes mma better. the whole reason he quit was that his heart wasn't into wrestling and he didn't like the wwe schedule.

    and it's the mma people who keep bringing up fake fighting. brock has a contract with ufc, and there's no way dana white lets him do wrestling too.

    wwe still makes way mroe money than ufc.

    if lesnar is reallllllllly popular.. i can bet my left nut vince wouldnt mind dropping a few million to get him back.

    plus that wwe merchandise brings in a lot of money

    they paid mayweather a lot of money for ONE fight.

    and lesnar is way more popular right now

    considering lesnar left wwe to try out for a reserve spot on an nfl team, i don't think money is that big of an issue for him. he doesn't spend a lot, and he's a lot happier doing mma than he was doing pro wrestling. in the end, i don't think it matters what vince wants because brock wants to do mma and he's going to do mma.

    I could see him maybe doing something with TNA like a one shot deal, wouldn't be a lot of work, just do what 3 days of work for the month, the TV tapings and then the PPV. If he did come back I think it would be with TNA and take that light schedule. Also maybe if Lashley is sucessfull with it

    The only time you'll see Lesnar in wrestling is in maybe an occasional non wrestling role, or you might see him come back after he is done with MMA. Considering that he should have a good 10 years left, I wouldn't hold my breath.

    Besides, Dana and Brock want to keep clear the fuck away from wrestling right now. The association is more bad than good in the long run, and they know that.

    Did you see Lesnar post fight after his most recent victory?

    Lesnar was too competitive for wrestling. Part of the reason he left is because he felt like Guerrero winning the belt was a slap in the face. Not because he disliked Eddie, but because he felt like after putting in work and doing what he was supposed to do, he should be the top guy. In wrestling, of course, that isn't the case. It's all about the fresh faces and what's good for business. In mma, you're the top guy as long as you're the top guy.

    I hate lashley as a pro wrestler, but as an mma guy he seems like a good prospect. Wish he'd stay away from wrestling.

    Lesnar has stated several times that wrestling is harder on the body all year round than MMA. In MMA you basically have 8 or so weeks of punishing training before the fight and then some downtime in between.

    Oh yeah, did we mention he makes a lot more money?

    More money, less punishment, more actual competition, less hectic schedule = not going anywhere. Even if Fedor comes and leads to his downfall in UFC, japan will make him bill gates rich.
