Lesnar is already retired from MMA, so a prowrestling bout would make zero effect. Anyway maybe one day he will return to the WWE.
As for Fedor, I don't think it would hurt his career. I mean, it would be very weird to watch Fedor in a prowrestling match and I doubt he will accept it, but even if he accepts, I don't see why it would have any negative or positive impact in his MMA career and his legacy.
An exhibition match would not be a failure either. Fedor had exhibition matches with Aoki and Mousasi and those matches were fun to watch. Fighters can do a lot of flashy things in those kind of matches because they have absolutely nothing to lose so they are not afraid of doing those moves.
In both exhibition matches we saw beautiful judo throws, beautiful sub attempts. There is nothing wrong with an exhibition match.
