"Lesnar ... is a massive man with a personal charisma that rivals Hulk Hogan's."

What organization is this fight being promoted by?

Lesnar could be a very legit threat in MMA with the UFC if motivated.

    "You can learn things like Muay Thai and jiu-jitsu and boxing in a relatively short amount of time, but you can't learn to be a great wrestler overnight," Lesnar says.


Gee, well, I have a week coming up off of work. I should use that time to take a course, and by the end of it I'll be a world-class Muay Thai, boxing and jiu-jitsu expert.

If Lesnar truly believes this, he's going to literally get some sense knocked into him very quickly in his MMA career.

It would be interesting to see the WWE landscape had he stayed with the company. I still think he is the one of the biggest loses to the company in years (probably right behind the Rock), and had he stayed Cena would probably be stuck as second banana on Smackdown or something.

I remember the first Cena vs Lesnar feud, where the announcers repeatedly made comments such as "what you see here is the future of this company" and "I don't think this is the last time we'll see these two head-to-head in the years to come".

I was a huge Lesnar fan, one of the biggest. I thought that he had unlimited potential. However the WWE convinced me otherwise. The first year of his WWE career was phenominal. I was always excited to see him show up, and I loved seeing his matches. The mini-feud with the Rock, the extended feud with the undertaker, even the emo double-turn feud with big show, all were done well.

Then we got the post-WMXIX part of Lesnar's career. BORING face turn. The man just couldn't swing playing a good face, so they re-turned him heel asap, only they couldn't think of anything legitimate for him to do other than pushing cripples down stairs and giving him a stable of 3 other huge guys so he could bully other people smaller than him around easier.

Perhaps it was just the fact that the WWE couldn't do much with ANYBODY'S storylines on smackdown during that period, but it got to the point where I just didn't want to watch smackdown anymore. the wrestling was decent, we had angle and benoit etc on the show, but there was nothing about the show's plotlines that was actually entertaining. God I hated sable. When Lesnar exited the show post WM-XX, I took it as my excuse to stop watching the show. In reality, I'd stopped watching it around royal rumble time cause there just wasn't anybody on the show I cared about anymore. The WWE was even kind enough to move benoit to Raw for me.

Lesnar had all sorts of potential, but the WWE creative team made me lose all sorts of interest in him as well. Such the shame.

I would love to see the WMX8-WMXIX Lesnar return, but I think we'd be more likely to get the post WMXIX lesnar, and I'm not sure I'd still want to watch that.

I'm afraid any Lesnar return would be mired with payback from the company.

Quite possibly, although vince has shown that no matter what you've done in the past, if you're:
A. Talented enough
and
B. willing to suck up enough
then you can still eventually find yourself back in a main even spot in a few years.

Hey, look no further than our favorite son Triple H for the prime example.

HEY. Here's my question. Will I be able to stream this through my Blu Ray, a la Netflix, or will I have to sit in front of my computer or do some nonsense with cables like a dope!? Because if I can stream it, you know...I might do it.
