When Brock Lesnar appeared on Monday Night Raw the night after WrestleMania 28, he made his impact immediately by taking out the face of the WWE, John Cena.
Brock Lesnar left the WWE to pursue other interest back in 2004 and in the time since he has tried the NFL but more importantly became the UFC World Heavyweight Champion. Lesnar’s dominance in the UFC quickly began to overshadow his time at the WWE.
As Lesnar was becoming a dominant force in the UFC he was hit with a major set back. Lesnar had to undergo surgery to help battle his problems with diverticultis, which left Lesnar unable to fight. When he returned to the Octagon at the end of last year he announced his retirement after being defeated. Lesnar made his next on screen appearance on April 2, 2012 back in the WWE.
3. Brock Wanted More Money
Brock Lesnar is a businessman, he knows what’s best for him and him only. He has always made it clear that his family comes first and like his friend Paul Heyman, Brock has always admitted it’s about the money and not the fans. When Lesnar signed the deal it was very much in his favor, and whilst his on screen character might have demanded more money, the promo wasn’t too far from the truth.
Lesnar said it would take something special to return to the WWE and one thing is for sure by special he meant a huge pay packet. Lesnar apparently wanted more money than the WWE originally offered although he agreed to the deal as the extra money would be made up in bonuses. The WWE then gave Lesnar less time on TV but the same amount of cash; Brock wanted the money with none of the hassle.
