It sounds like Brock Lesnar may be back in the UFC before much longer. And with his WWE contract apparently expected to expire in April around the time of WWE's biggest event of the year, Wrestlemania, it makes all the more sense that the UFC would be working their way back into the Brock Lesnar sweepstakes at this point in time.
Three former WWE Champions have entered the Intercontinental arena - one of which is the best heel in the business, the other is riding a tsunami of organic momentum, and Finn Balor is at least handsome as hell.
Pitting two wrestlers who fans have grown to despise seemed like a really bad move on the part of the WWE, but something that happened on the most recent episode of "Monday Night RAW" is offering hope that maybe this feud can be salvaged and even be successful.

When Lesnar's last contract with WWE was nearing its end, rumors began swirling that he was potentially plotting a comeback to the UFC before ultimately deciding to re-up with the professional wrestling organization on a new multi-year deal. WWE's goal for the Reigns vs. Lesnar build is to get Reigns cheered by fans, which is something that isn't always guaranteed, leading to a positive reaction when he wins the title at WrestleMania 34. WWE is crafting a narrative - one that paints Lesnar as the villain, the Champion who isn't there.

The gift of destruction was in a foul mood last night, following his record-setting main event at Elimination Chamber that saw him eliminate a staggering five men within Satan's structure.
Eventually scampering underneath the WWE ring, Elias returned with a fire extinguisher that he used to blast Strowman in the face with, earning a DQ and escaping the clutches of the monster at the very last moment.
The crowd could not have gotten more excited. Welcome to the WWE, Ronda Rousey.
