Columnist Jose Rodriguez of The Toronto Sun is featuring a piece on Brock Lesnar’s return to WWE and noting that he feels that Lesnar belongs in WWE doing little to add to the credibility of MMA.
“The script for the former UFC heavyweight champ’s return to fake fighting called for him to extend a ‘pretend’ handshake to Cena on Monday Night Raw and using the ruse to pick Cena up over his head a-la-helicopter and slamming him to the mat with his patented F-5 slam. Funny, I don’t remember many F-5s during his MMA days. I guess it’s a little different when the other guy doesn’t play along.
Now, not questioning Lesnar’s athleticism for a second, but it’s a little like the righting of the Earth’s axis to see him back where he belongs. I, for one, can’t think of a better home for the loud-mouthed, brash and often times ignorant Lesnar. He did little to build the credibility of the sport and, if anything, cheapened it. There is something seriously wrong when The Undertaker is one of the featured stars in the stands during a UFC pay-per-view.”
