WWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross may have broken a major story today regarding the future of Brock Lesnar in WWE.
In his latest post on www.jrsbarbq.com, Ross stated, “Sources are saying that it looks more promising that Brock Lesnar could well stay with WWE past WrestleMania due to concerns over long term health affects of competing in MMA specifically concussion oriented issues later in one’s life. gain, these are ‘sources’ and how reliable they are can only be judged after WM31 and following the status of the former UFC Heavyweight Champion. One thing is certain, if UFC believes, and rightfully so in my view, that CM Punk will sell PPV’s for at least his first two fights then what would a healthy Brock Lesnar mean to the UFC brand in a time where no combat sport company has a plethora of bona fide star power that can move the needle on the pay per view business.”
If this is the case and his sources are correct, then it makes the WrestleMania main event finish less obvious. Lesnar is in a good spot with Bellator, UFC, and WWE bidding for his services but Brock is smart by thinking ahead. Perhaps concussions are not an issue for him now but he may not want to deal with potential issues that may arise if he returns to the Octagon.
