Longtime fans of pro wrestling hate to see their favorite
superstars retire, even if it’s so they can compete in mixed martial arts and
become one of the most popular fighters in UFC history. That’s the case with
Brock Lesnar who currently aims to get back the UFC Heavyweight title and is
preparing for a match in December. But he’s still coming back to sports
entertainment digitally, as he’s appearing in WWE '12, THQ’s next wrestling
game. Why’d he decide to sort of return to the house of McMahon? This video
interview has some answers.
As wrestling fans, we were sad to hear Brock basically says
he’ll never do an F5 again in real life, and we liked that he dished on Stone
Cold Steve Austin angry refusal to perform with him. UFC fans also got some
nice insight into his thoughts about his upcoming fight with Alistair Overeem
and how, now that he’s healthy, he’s ready to get the title back. The sharp
eared ECW fans out there might have recognized the interviewer’s voice too.
That’s right, it was Brock’s former WWE manager Paul Heyman, the mad genius of
pro wrestling, making a low key appearance after basically leaving wrestling
years ago to interview someone he helped groom for stardom. It’s a nice, subtle
bonus for the hardcore fans.
