Brock Lesnar explains in new video why WWE ’12 is the only way he’ll return to pro wrestling

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.

    I liked Brock in WWE and fair play to him for wanting to do his own thing and not playing Vince McMahon's game. He was one of the best all round wrestlers even if he was crap on the mic. As for Paul Heyman, he knows talent when he sees it.

    I'm glad you said who the interviewer was. His voice was so familiar but I just couldn't place it. Interesting video even though I've never seen Brock Lesnar in either pro wrestling or MMA before.

    Overeem is going to punch Lesnar once, Lesnar will cover up and the ref will stop the fight.

    I am also sad that Brock Lesnar gave up acting for a fighting career.
