Former UFC champion Brock Lesnar officially returns to pro wrestling roots

Despite some feeling as though Brock Lesnar’s alleged contact with WWE over the weekend was little more than an April Fools’ Day joke, the former UFC heavyweight champ apparently had the last laugh after showing up on last night’s episode of WWE RAW where he answered any lingering questions surrounding his current contractual status.

Rather than simply be a face in the crowd or make an appearance via satellite, Lesnar walked down to the ring and delivered his trademark “finishing move” to popular WWE Superstar John Cena to close out the show. The action was Lesnar’s first in WWE after eight years away from the organization where he first gained his widespread notoriety.

The 34-year old Lesnar retired from Mixed Martial Arts in December after being stopped with strikes by Alistair Overeem, the hulking Minnesotan’s second consecutive loss via TKO. He left the sport with a 5-3 record and wins over Frank Mir, Heath Herring, Shane Carwin, and Randy Couture.
