WWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross has updated his blog, which you can read in its entirety at JRsBarBQ.com.
In his latest post, Jim Ross says he’s heard from his sources about Brock Lesnar’s future after WrestleMania 31.
Lesnar is the reigning WWE World Heavyweight Champion and is rumored to be considering a return to UFC when his WWE contract expires in less than 2 months. Ross said:
“Sources are saying that it looks more promising that Brock Lesnar could well stay with WWE past WrestleMania due to concerns over long term health affects of competing in MMA specifically concussion oriented issues later in one’s life. gain, these are ‘sources’ and how reliable they are can only be judged after WM31 and following the status of the former UFC Heavyweight Champion.
That said, Ross knows that UFC is very focused on the ‘star power’ of their fighters, which could lead the world’s top MMA promotion to make a strong play for the former UFC Heavyweight Champion.
“One thing is certain, if UFC believes, and rightfully so in my view, that CM Punk will sell PPV’s for at least his first two fights then what would a healthy Brock Lesnar mean to the UFC brand in a time where no combat sport company has a plethora of bona fide star power that can move the needle on the pay per view business.”
