Until recently that's pretty much the extent of what we've known regarding the big man's decision to head back to World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE), the company that first made him famous back in 2002. When he retired from mixed martial arts (MMA) following his knockout loss to Alistair Overeem at UFC 141 on Dec. 30, 2011, he took some time off before quickly scooping a monster pro wrestling payday.
To the tune of $5 million.
That's the word from PWInsider.com (via CagesideSeats.com), who recently reported the details of Lesnar's contract. The artist formerly known as "The Next Big Thing" will apparently make roughly two appearances per month over the course of the next year leading to a match at WrestleMania 29.
And sorry, pro wrestling haters, MMAmania.com is probably going to cover it from all angles.
