There is a reason why Brock Lesnar has been paid the big bucks by WWE and UFC over the years. He simply is a master of generating interest in a product through the use of his ridiculous athleticism and power. Shortly after the company announced that he would be doing a live appearance in Japan, the event has now been sold out. Fans in Tokyo flocked to get tickets because it is rare that they get to see Lesnar wrestle in person.

When Brock Lesnar opted to stay with WWE for another three years, UFC lost out on someone that could draw big numbers for them again. That was the reason why Dana White was offering a huge sum of money to his former world heavyweight champion. Since the void is still there, that has caused other great draws into considering a comeback. Georges St Pierre is now thinking about coming out of retirement to return to MMA.

Despite signing a new three year contract to remain with WWE, there are those that still believe that Brock Lesnar has not completely shut the door on UFC. One of those people is the ever outspoken Chael Sonnen. He states that if Lesnar really wanted to do MMA again, then Dana White and Vince McMahon would find a way to make it happen. Sonnen stated that McMahon and White are closer than a lot of fans know.

Last minute changes have been made by the sports book. Brock Lesnar is now favored to retain the heavyweight championship against Roman Reigns, and the reason for that is because he signed a new contract with WWE. Triple H is now favored to defeat Sting in his Wrestlemania debut match. No word on why those particular odds did a complete shift, but the theory floating around is that it is because so many were betting on the WCW legend.

Some further details have been leaked about the real life backstage incident between Vince McMahon and Brock Lesnar at the latest episode of Monday Night Raw. It is now being said that the reason why Lesnar walked away from the show that night was because he was upset with the contract offer that WWE had on the table for him. Apparently, the heavyweight champion wants a deal on the table in case he is not satisfied with the UFC offer.

Apparently, some of the biggest stars in MMA are trying their best to help put more money into Brock Lesnar's pockets by being idiots. Jon Jones was caught with cocaine in his system not too long ago. This week, Anderson Silva fails a test for steroids. His opponent Nick Diaz had marijuana in his system. All this bodes well for Lesnar because UFC desperately needs a top draw. He now has more leverage in negotiations because of others.

Earlier this month, it was reported that UFC had been contemplating potential opponents for Brock Lesnar if he decides to walk away from WWE in a couple of months. Frank Mir was a popular choice within the promotion. Aside from their history together, a big reason why Mir was chosen is because he is currently on a four fight losing streak. A battle with Lesnar would be the best possible draw for the legendary fighter at this point.

Every year at Wrestlemania over the last decade, WWE has left a spot open for Undertaker, who is by far the greatest draw in the history of the biggest wrestling pay per view of the year. Even though he has been leaning towards retirement after doing the honors for Brock Lesnar earlier this year, management is still saving him a seat, in case he changes his mind. The opponent has now been handpicked for him the legend, and that person is Bray Wyatt.
