Dana: Very Very Good Odds That Lesnar Returns
For the majority of his career, Paul Heyman has been known to shock the system of whatever entity he works for. And as the WWE heads towards its biggest event of the year, featuring the man Heyman advocates for in the main event, Heyman set off a firestorm of rumors regarding Brock Lesnar’s future.
It all began late last week, when Heyman was interviewed by TMZ regarding Lesnar’s future, and claiming if Lesnar returned to the UFC, the former heavyweight champion would be the healthiest fighter on the roster.
Those comments sparked a ton of speculation surrounding whether or not Lesnar would re-up his deal with the WWE after Wrestlemania, or return to the UFC.
Dana White, who is also known to make tsunami like waves, posted a photo of he and Brock Lesnar together during WWE’s Elimination Chamber event on Sunday evening.
On Monday, the WWE integrated that photo into its storyline for Lesnar’s Wrestlemania match, as his opponent Roman Reigns referenced it and called out Lesnar for skipping the live RAW broadcast in Anaheim and being a “part timer.”
White poured kerosene on the flame this week, as appearing on Kevin Harvick’s Sirius-XM show, claimed that he expects to see Lesnar back in the Octagon, and that the odds were “very, very good.”

With both the UFC and WWE looking to score record numbers in their next broadcast rights deal, the odds of a bidding war for Lesnar’s services may come to pass. Yet, there may be another option, where both the WWE and UFC work together on a deal through UFC’s current broadcast partner, FOX, who seem to be courting the WWE for their broadcast rights in 2019.
Either way, the rumor-mill is constantly spinning, as Brock Lesnar continues to dictate his future.
