Brock Lesnar

The Los Angeles Times recently interviewed Brock Lesnar. During the interview Lesnar talked about his return to World Wrestling Entertainment.

“I left originally because I was a caged animal 300 days a year on the road and they knew that. That was the bottom line – I don’t want to be that person. I’m at a different stage in my life where I think I’ve earned [the reduced schedule]. That was the only way I could make this happen. They played ball and hopefully it’s a win-win for both of us. I really do enjoy putting on a show.”

Lesnar also commented on his departure from the UFC.

“That chapter in my life has come to closure, and I’m comfortable with it.” He continued, “You’ve always got that part in your mind. I do miss it, but I’ve got to keep myself in check. What I went through the last few years was quite traumatic, not being able to fight like I wanted. I got back on the horse way too soon. Coulda, shoulda, woulda.”

Brocn Lesnar also revealed during the interview that he will be appearing in “at least a couple more WrestleMania’s” after signing an extension with WWE earlier in this year.

    IF..and I wish I could make that bigger…Lesnar never had the the stomach problems and learned how to hold his hands, a fight with him and Big Country would’ve been nice…then again the UFC HW division still has Cain….
