Oh yes, it's happening again.
Former Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) Heavyweight Champion Brock Lesnar is back in the pro wrestling game with World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) and his first match in eight years takes place tonight (Sun., April 29, 2012) at the Extreme Rules pay-per-view event against John Cena.
The show starts at 8 p.m. ET but don't worry, Maniacs, we're not covering the entire thing. Instead, we'll focus solely on Lesnar vs. Cena, which, considering it's the headliner, likely won't go on until around 10 p.m. ET at the earliest.
Whenever it does, MMAmania.com will provide live coverage of the match after the jump. If you're not a fan, that's okay, just skip on to the next post. Lord knows there's plenty of mixed martial arts (MMA) content for you to digest around this one WWE post.
