• Paul Heyman Reveals The Reason Behind Brock Lesnar Returning To WWE Instead Of UFC
Old School WCW/ECW/WWF Manager Paul Heyman (fka Paul E. Dangerously) was recently interviewed by Z100, where he was asked whether his client Brock Lesnar would consider returning to the sport of Mixed-Martial-Arts at some point in the future.
Here’s what Heyman said:
“Been there, done that. If you were to tell me that Brock Lesnar would have a shoot-out in soccer with Messi, that I believe. But he has already done the MMA schtick.
He knocked out Randy Couture, took a beating from Shane Carwin. He’s a conqueror. What more can he do in the UFC that he hasn’t done?
When Brock Lesnar went out for the Minnesota Vikings in 2004, he was 295 pounds, just suffered a motorcycle accident, and he had a torn groin, broken pelvis, a wired-shut jaw, and he still ran his 100-yard dash in Olympic qualifying time.
He has nothing left to prove in MMA. He can make a lot more money in the WWE.”
Brock Lesnar is scheduled to wrestle Roman Reigns at the WWE Crown Jewel 2021 PPV in October.
Lesnar’s last MMA fight was at the UFC 200 pay-per-view in 2016, where he defeated Mark Hunt (but the outcome was later turned to a no-contest due to Lesnar’s failed drug tests).
