Last night, Brock Lesnar made his return to WWE. All weekend long, there has a buzz in the air that the ex-WWE, UFC Champion would make his return. Sure enough, Lesnar came back during the last segment and delivered an ‘F5’ to John Cena. And I couldn’t be more disappointed. 

Let’s take a trip down memory lane, shall we? Eight years ago at Wrestlemania 20, Lesnar and Bill Goldberg had arguably the worst match in Wrestlemania history. Both men were leaving the company and had effectively ‘sold out’. The match was stale, raw, and pretty boring. Neither man cared. On his way out, Lesnar was nice enough to flip off the WWE Universe as they chanted ‘Na Na Na Hey Hey Goodbye’. Lesnar also has had some curious moments inside the Octagon as a UFC Fighter that we just won’t get into. 

Maybe it’s because I’m a loyal fan, but I don’t want any part of Brock Lesnar and seeing him last night really turned me off. The guys who are the road daily deserve to be in the main events, not sell the outs. True, Lesnar is still a popular character and will appeal to non-WWE fans, but Wrestlemania 28 was the highest grossing event ever in WWE History–and they didn’t need Brock Lesnar to make it happen.

Give John Cena a lot of credit. Guys like The Rock and Lesnar come in out of nowhere and go over Cena on a regular basis. Sure, male fans hate Cena, but it’s apparent that he’s willing to do whatever for the company. That’s admirable. 

Lesnar will probably work more often than the Undertaker does, but he won’t travel with the rest of the guys. If WWE does intend to fully go down the Lesnar road, I hope it ends via a Tombstone pile driver at Wrestlemania 29. 

Last night was one of my favorite nights of the year: Wrestlemania. I’ve been a lifelong fan of WWE and I worked at WWE as an intern last year, so you know I was watching. A few moments made the show for me and a few others made me leave the room. Without further delay, here is my Wrestlemania 27 recap..

No, Snooki was not one the memorable moments
