Former UFC Heavyweight Champion Brock Lesnar has reportedly signed a two-year contract extension with WWE, which would keep him employed with the wrestling organization all the way through WrestleMania 31. Get all the details below.
Well, if hearing Dana White say how close he was to making Brock Lesnar vs Fedor Emelianenko happen at Cowboys Stadium got your hopes up, thinking that perhaps you'd potentially see "The Next Big Thing" inside the Octagon again in the near future, prepare to have those hopes dashed.
That's because Lesnar has reportedly signed a contract extension with WWE for two more years which would last all the way up to WrestleMania 31 in 2015.
After losing via first round technical knockout in a number one contender match against Alistair Overeem at UFC 141 in December of 2011, the former UFC heavyweight champion called it quits in mixed martial arts (MMA), saying: "Tonight is the last night you'll see me in the Octagon... Brock Lesnar is officially retired."
Lesnar then proceeded to resign with WWE, where he would feud with John Cena and Triple H respectively at the Extreme Rules and Summerslam pay-per-view (PPV) events, helping boost business for the wrestling entertainment organization.
Now it appears that the only time we'll see him in a steel cage again, is during a "Hell in the Cell" match.
Sorry to burst your bubble, Maniacs.
