FLASH NEWS ALERT! Brock Lesnar walked out on Monday Night RAW after heated discussion with Vince McMahon. Brock Lesnar seen at UFC 184 on Saturday night sitting behind UFC president Dana White. Brock Lesnar returning to fight in the octagon. And so the speculations run wild…
Having conquered The Beast Incarnate’s autobiography Death Clutch: My Story of Determination, Domination, and Survival in a matter of a few days, The Tastic One knows a thing a two about what makes the former NCAA Division I champ tick!
The answer is money.
It was reported that Lesnar and McMahon had a heated discussion. One that even concerned the safety of the chairman of the WWE; but just because Brock Lesnar has the ability to break someone’s jaw, doesn’t mean that he would, especially when there is money to be made.
In Death Clutch, Brock and Vince had heated discussions all the time in regards to negotiating contracts, and–towards the end of his first run–trying to end it. But fast forward to now, everyone, including FoxSports knows that Brock Lesnar is set to be done with the WWE the Monday after WrestleMania.
Ever the business man, Brock Lesnar sets his price for what he feels he’s worth, and sticks to it. He doesn’t fall for the notorious “Vince Jedi Mind Tricks” and has never been deceived by the “you would be letting the company down” ploy. Brock Lesnar has his wife Rena (former WWE Diva Sable), and his children to consider. Those are his family, not the WWE, and the true reason why he laces up his boots.
Both men can be stubborn in their own right: Vince will make an offer and won’t budge; and Lesnar, if he doesn’t like what he sees, will not sign. And if that remains to be the case, the WWE will be short one Beast after WrestleMania.
Death Clutch concluded with Brock losing the UFC Heavyweight title to Cain Velasquez–who suffered a torn rotator cuff. And his last UFC fight was a loss to Alistair Overeem. Will Brock Lesnar at 37 make a return to the octagon?
Due to bouts of diverticulitis, Brock Lesnar never had a healthy run in the UFC, although he did come back from his first dance with death and successfully defended the championship, which truly tells you what kind of man he really is, but after 3 years removed, does he still have what it takes?
Dana White is definitely opened to the possibility of seeing one of his biggest pay-per-view draws in the company’s history return to the octagon. But knowing Lesnar, he wouldn’t come back if he wasn’t assured that one day he would be competing for the title. It’s who he is. He’s a fighter and to be the best, you have to be number one. The top fighter gets paid the most, and that means a better life for his family.
So as the story goes, fighters got to fight. And if Lesnar does return to the octagon, he already has a challenge in the former UFC heavyweight champion Frank Mir, who has already made it public that he wants to fight Lesnar. These two have a storied rivalry, having each traded victories. A rubber match would definitely put asses to seats at a future UFC pay-per-view. Plus, Brock Lesnar finds pleasure in punching the lights out of Frank Mir, a man he honestly doesn’t respect.
