Wrestlemania: Brock Lesnar Returns To WWE On One Year Contract

Instead of a small cameo appearance at tomorrow's Wrestlemania XXVIII event, former champ Brock Lesnar could be back to his old tricks in the ring as an active WWE wrestler. Lesnar, who has battled illness as a mixed-martial arts fighter in the UFC over the last few years, reportedly signed a one-year contract with the WWE on Saturday.

Lesnar's addition to the WWE roster coincides interestingly well with comments made by Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson earlier this month, the same man who will be making his first Wrestlemania appearance since 2004 in tomorrow's main event:

It's clear if the WWE wants to squeeze another potential blockbuster buy rate out of the Rock, the last man standing to get the headline match would be the return of former WWE and UFC heavyweight champion Brock Lesnar.

How about it: Brock vs. Rock at WrestleMania 29?

"I'm not saying a thing," said a laughing, grinning Rock, eyebrow raised. "I didn't say anything."

The Rock silenced. That's a first.

It's clear that the WWE has its eyes on holding a historic event at some point during the next year, one that very well might take place at Wrestlemania XXIX with the two headliners opposing each other. Lesnar and The Rock are each two of the best draws in the history of wrestling, so it seems inevitable that the two will eventually square off in a match for the ages.
