Brock Lesnar Returns To WWE, Attacks John Cena On Monday Night Raw

Brock Lesnar has quite a few fans in the Minnesota area considering his escapades both as a wrestler for the Minnesota Golden Gophers as well as his exploits in mixed martial arts as a member of the UFC (we'll forget about the failed endeavor with the Minnesota Vikings). On Monday night, however, the former heavy weight champion of the world triumphantly returned to professional wrestling by attacking John Cena on WWE's Monday Night Raw.

Lesnar didn't show up until very late in the show, during a monologue where Cena was recapping his fight with The Rock at Sunday night's Wrestlemania 28. Cena had mentioned that he wasn't ready to "call out" The Rock for next year's Wrestlemania and the crowd ran with it, starting a "We Want Lesnar" chant.

Cena ignored the chants for the most part, but eventually Lesnar's entrance music hit and the crowd went wild. The behemoth of a man then walked down to the ring, extended his hand to Cena and -- instead of the firm handshake your's truly once was given at a promotional appearance in lovely Bismarck, N.D. -- Lesnar loaded Cena on to his shoulder's before slamming him to the ground using the "F5" slam that finished quite a few professional wrestlers during his first stint in the promotion.

Lesnar than celebrated on the ring's ropes while Raw went off the air without saying a single word, meaning nothing has been officially decided, but it seems as though it could easily set up Lesnar versus Cena at next year's Wrestlemania.
