Wrestlemania 28 takes place from Miami Florida this Sunday (April 1, 2012) and there are rumors that former UFC Heavyweight Champion, Brock Lesnar has made the trip. According to a report by Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer, Lesnar has begun negotiations with the WWE about a return to the wrestling ring.
Regarding Brock Lesnar rumors for the weekend, the two sides have been talking in recent weeks, as was hinted in the Dwayne Johnson interview last week when Lesnar’s name was brought up as a possible opponent for next year.
Now it’s not known if Lesnar will be involved in any way in the upcoming Wrestlemania 28 event, but there have been a lot of rumors from good sources that are saying that it’s not a matter of “IF” Lesnar comes back to professional wrestling it’s a matter of “When” does he come back. Lesnar is a very private person and for him to be in Miami for those negotiations seems odd. Whether or not those rumors are true or if they are just planted rumors by the WWE in order to get more eyes on their PPV is yet to be seen. Judging by the buzz, Wrestlemania 28 will probably be one of the WWE’s biggest and most successful PPV events of all time. Having rumors of Lesnar’s involvement may garner even more viewers.
If I had to guess, I would not be surprised to see Lesnar interfere or be involved in the HHH vs. Undertaker Main Event, setting up some giant Main Event going into Summer Slam. There is a tremendous amount of heat between Undertaker and Brock Lesnar that goes way back, that you know the WWE would love to cash in on.
Duane “The Rock” Johnson stated recently that he would love to have a match with Lesnar in the not too distant future even hinting at Wrestlemania 29. However, something tells me that Lesnar will be back sooner than that. My money is this weekend.
When Lesnar does come back don’t expect him to do a lot of Monday Night Raws. It will most likely be a similar situation that “The Rock” had where it’s select TV appearances leading up to a large event like Summer Slam. Stay tuned.
