Ross: Lesnar Unlikely To Be Returning To The WWE

By Chris Howie

Speculation has been running wild that Brock Lesnar will make a return to the world of professional wrestling but the WWE's Jim Ross tried to throw a little water on the flames this week, suggesting if Lesnar were to return at all, it would not be in a large capacity:

“For those that know Brock well, the answer to this question is actually quite simple. It's NO. Brock dislikes, putting it mildly, traveling. Plus, he doesn't need the money even though he's smart enough to not turn down a big payday if the lay of the land is to his liking. That's why the UFC thing was good for him because he could earn big money by traveling 2-3 times per year to fight. I could see Brock doing a major, one off WWE appearance ala a WrestleMania, but not this year, and doing so while not even making the live Raw events that lead into it. I could also see WWE traveling to Brock to shoot vignettes to build whatever match that he might be booked. For fans who think that Lesnar will return to make a significant amount of TV dates only and then only work a handful or so of PPV's, I hate to burst your bubble, but in my opinion that simply isn't happening.”
