Rumor became reality Monday night in Miami, as Brock Lesnar returned to the WWE.
While the former UFC heavyweight champ did not decide the outcome of the WrestleMania 28 main event between John Cena and The Rock the night before as many had speculated, Lesnar came to the ring on Monday Night Raw when Cena called out The Rock for a congratulatory handshake after Cena fell to The People's Champion the previous night. Cena, playing up the moment along with the WWE fans, extended his hand to Lesnar, who proceeded to deliver an F-5 on the polarizing star.
This was exactly the type of return the WWE needed in order to maintain momentum now that its much-anticipated clash between Cena and The Rock has come and gone.
Of course, the last time we saw Lesnar in a WWE ring we watched him get unceremoniously waved goodbye by the WWE Universe after his main-event match with Goldberg on pay-per-view.
So The Next Big Thing is back in the WWE after leaving in 2004. But for how long?
Multiple Internet reports state that Lesnar, who became the youngest champion in the history of WWE and had memorable feuds with Kurt Angle and The Undertaker, signed a one-year deal with the company, so it will be interesting to see his program with Cena and possibly with 'Taker down the road. He also has a ton of potential fresh programs awaiting him, including matchups with Randy Orton and Sheamus.
Overall, an incredible last few days in the Sunshine State for the WWE Universe.
