Showed up at the end up WWE Raw tonight & F-5ed John Cena. Looks like Overeem made good on his promise to send Brock back to fake wrestling.

Brock Lesnar Appears on WWE Monday Night Raw

Apr 2, 2012 - Brock Lesnar is back in World Wrestling Entertainment.

The former pro wrestling champion turned UFC heavyweight champion appeared in the final segment of WWE's Monday Night RAW program. The 34-year-old Lesnar interrupted John Cena's promo, walked down to the ring, grabbed Cena and slammed him with his old finishing maneuver, the F-5. A noticeably smaller Lesnar then soaked in the crowd applause as the show ended. He didn't say anything on television.
Lesnar retired from MMA in December after losing via first-round TKO to Alistair Overeem at UFC 140. He walked away from the sport with a 5-3 record.

Over the weekend, the wrestling media reported that Lesnar had signed a one-year contract with WWE, however, terms of the deal have yet to be made official. Lesnar hasn't worked for WWE since 2004.

Watch Lesnar's return to WWE below.

I actually think it's cool he's still doing something that keeps his name out there and makes him some good money. I also think it's a brilliant move by the WWE. They just had the Rock come back for Wrestlemania and now that it's over they bring out Brock Lesnar the following day. Sure, WWE is scripted and obnoxiously cheesy at times, but that's what it's supposed to be. It was the WWE that essentially got Brock his fast track in the UFC, so it's kinda fitting to see him give them another run at what is likely the tail end of his career.

He won't be remembered as one of the greatest mixed martial artists of all time, but he still brought a lot of attention to the sport and, unlike Kimbo Slice, Lesnar really did prove he was worthy of being in the UFC. Obviously he is brutally strong and has a top notch wrestling background, but everything else he was basically learning on the fly while facing more well rounded and experienced guys than him. The reoccurring stomach problems didn't help much either. Still, gotta give him credit for beating Couture, Mir, Carwin, and Herring, and there is no shame in losing to The Reem or Mr. Velasquez.

in his shower and suddenly realized it was all just a bad dream....:wink:

I agree with you completely. I think alot of people hate on wrestling because it is the easy thing to do. Sure it is fake fighting, but these guys are athletes and also actors. Rampage, Cung Le, and others do movies and that is ok. Heck, there in an MMA fighter that used to be a power ranger!

I am glad that he is able to still do something that he enjoys and hope he can keep his health up.

Now that the Fujita Scale has been replaced by the Enhanced Fujita Scale, should his F5 now be called the EF5? This transition did occur in 2007 during his hiatus.

Yeah, but all of those people who played the Power Rangers are accomplished martial artists. Of course, wrestling is there too, it's silly that people still bash Brock even though he has already proven he was a top 10 guy even with little mma experience.

Agreed...the point I was trying to make is they are all still actors in one form or another, some are accepted but pro wrestling is not.

I think Pro-Wrestling is a lot more accepted by MMA fans than we always see on the surface (i.e. internet message boards).

A lot of the hardcore fans just hate to admit that they used to watch wrestling, or even that they still do because it's considered "fake" and not as "cool" as being a UFC fan in a skintight Tapout shirt. In reality, pro-wrestling and MMA have always had their hands in the same proverbial bag, so to speak. Without Vince McMahon and the WWE, the landscape of MMA today may be completely different. The entire business model of the Zuffa-era UFC is a lot like that of the WWE, and even the term "pay per view" wouldn't be viewed in the same light it is today if it weren't for the success of the WWE in the 80's and 90's.

MMA has always had a ton of pomp and circumstance from the very beginning. There is manufactured hype from both the fighters and the promoters. They stick celebrities in the crowd and show them on camera and put them in the broadcast booth. They have big light shows and entrance music. The UFC even used a "reality" show as a Trojan-Horse to bring in new fans (if I am not mistaken TUF used to actually lead into TNA Wrestling on Spike).

aka White Ranger, aka Red Ranger, aka Black Ranger. "Tommy Oliver" is the character who has appeared in the most episodes (he even came back as an adult to be the mentor for the teenaged protagonists in one brand of the series) and as the most different colors of ranger (he became the Black Ranger during his mentor run).

Can you tell I hit a nostalgia kick recently & read up on my favorite childhood TV show? :laugh:

I actually remember Jason David Frank as the Green Ranger, and did know he who he was when the news broke that he was getting into MMA. However, the Power Rangers came along at the tail end of my "childhood". I don't say that as a hater, but rather because I actually did like the Power Rangers in the very beginning, but I was right at that age of 11-13 where certain things just weren't "cool" anymore. I totally get the nostalgia kick, I've been on it for a while! :laugh: I'm gonna be 30 in just over a month! :w00t:

Yeah, I don't remember what triggered it, but I started reading up on the various storylines awhile ago. Problem is, I just found out that Netflix has every episode from every season available for streaming. There’s no way that I’m gonna sit through hundreds & hundreds of episodes, but there’s gotta be some fan-boy website out there that’ll breakdown the key episodes to the over-arcing storylines so I can pick my spots, right? :laugh:

In similar news, I just got Dinosaurs Season 1, Disc 1 from Netflix. Anyone remember Earl Sneed Sinlcair?

You say that like it was a big sacrifice to watch all 6 seasons back-to-back-to-back-to-back-to-back-to-back! In reality, you took the easy way out, not having to endure months-long lay off with your brain about to explode because of how warped the plot is getting, trying desperately to remeber the tiniest detail of a tree from the 7th episode because it might have bearing on the monster's personality, etc., etc., etc.

Have you ever watched Lost? If not, check it out, then get back to me about "details". Also, no, I didn't watch them back to back to back to back...I had to take bathroom breaks, and I'm pretty sure I had to "work" at times. :laugh:

As for the layoff, I get it....I just call it "Sons of Anarchy" nowadays!

O yeah, I watched Lost! I love(d) that show, man! TBH, I almost wish it never ended because I kept wishing things went even deeper, ya know? Stuff got wrapped up too neatly.

Also, I was ticked when Charlie died. He was my favorite character, hands down.

I didn't want Lost to end, even though it was over before I started and I even beat the video game....:laugh:

You still need to watch MMPR on Netflix!

Like Nike said...just do it....heck, I've been watching Saved By The Bell! Relive your childhood while you can! Never know if you will get that chance again!:wink:

If you don't, I will, and I will make all sorts of references you don't know! :)

Yeah, I really think I’m gonna go ahead & just jump in! That being said, I’m definitely going to only watch the important episodes, ya know? I just can’t remember all of ‘em off the top of my head. The most important one I can remember is the epic 5 part mini-series where Tommy was introduced (“Green with Evil”, I think). Hmmmm, I wonder what a quick google search will reveal…
