A very strange exchange involving former World Heavyweight Champion Brock Lesnar and his former WWE colleague The Undertaker occured immediately after the fight between Lesnar and Cain Velasquez. The Undertaker, who is a long-time MMA fan, was being interviewed by Ariel Helwani at ringside about his thoughts on the fight. As the two were talking Brock Lesnar walked past and the two of them stared at eache other, with The Undertaker shouting at him “You wanna do it?”.
When pressed afterwards by Ariel Helwani about whether the two were “cool” The Undertaker responded that it was “personal” and then went on to say that Lesnar needs to train harder and refused to say that he had rooted for his former colleague against Velasquez. The full exchange is contained in the video below:
Later on Ariel Helwani raised not only the confrontation with Dana White but the rumors swirling around the Honda Center that this tied into an attempt by the WWE to sign a match between Brock Lesnar and The Undertaker for next year’s Wrestlemania. White dismissed such a notion, saying that the Undertaker regularly comes to UFC events and that he had heard nothing of a possible return by Lesnar to pro-wrestling. He did however confirm that he had been ‘butting heads’ with Lesnar recently. Could Lesnar be looking to make a lucrative return to pro-wrestling?
