Normally I try to avoid covering pro wrestling on this blog, but when it comes to Brock Lesnar, I’m willing to make an exception.
According to Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer, Lesnar could resume wrestling on an active basis.
Kurt Angle is trying to broker a deal for Brock Lesnar to come to TNA. Dixie Carter and Lesnar have already begun talks.
In the months after his successful pro MMA debut at the K-1 USA Dynamite!! show in June, Lesnar has wrestled for Antonio Inoki’s promotion in Japan (the same promotion Josh Barnett has wrestled for), losing some sort of variation of the IWGP title to Angle.
I’m not sure what to make of the report that Lesnar is talking to TNA because it’s kind of surprising considering how much he’s denounced wrestling in the past. There’s also the fact that if K-1 was willing to pay him the same rate that he made fighting for them in June that if would be really hard for TNA to match that.
Hearing the news is kind of disappointing as I’m really excited about Lesnar’s prospects in MMA. My hope is that if he were to sign with TNA that he’d appear for them 4-6 days a month but still make MMA is primary focus.
It would be a dream come true though if Angle was trying to broker the deal to fight Lesnar in an MMA match that would be promoted by TNA. That’s the kind of aggressive business moves they need to make to grow their product, not doing business with a low-life such as Adam “Pacman” Jones.
