That was fast.

Just a couple of months since getting kicked out of Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) by Alistair Overeem (literally), former UFC Heavyweight Champion Brock Lesnar returned to the land of make believe, showing his pasty mug in the waning minutes of World Wrestling Entertainment's (WWE) Monday Night RAW on April 2, 2012.

But he didn't have much to say.

Instead, Lesnar simply interrupted top wrestling draw John Cena by delivering an "F-5" (his old finisher) to put the WWE universe on notice and end recent speculation that he had, in fact, returned to professional wrestling.

For how long -- and in what capacity -- has yet to be determined.

Lesnar's final appearance inside the Octagon, following a high profile loss to Cain Velasquez and multiple bouts with diverticulitis, came at UFC 141 back in December 2011. He was unable to withstand the physical prowess of "Demolition Man" in their number one contender bout, succumbing to strikes in the very first round.

In the wake of his second straight technical knockout (TKO) loss, Lesnar tied a ribbon on his mixed martial arts (MMA) career and was promptly scooped up by Vince McMahon and Co. just days before WrestleMania 28 -- and even had UFC President Dana White's blessing.

Does he have yours?
