During the recently held UFC 199 pay-per-view, it was announced that Brock Lesnar is heading back to the UFC. ESPN’s @SportsCenter account on Twitter declared the news that the beast is returning to the Octagon. The News came as a shocker as he is already in a contract with WWE. Later WWE cleared the air by addressing it as “one-off opportunity” and he will be available for Summerslam. So on July 9th, we will see the beast taking on the knock-out master Mark Hunt inside the octagon.
Though, even after the clarification, the pro-wrestling fraternity is still buzzing about the real reason of the company letting him fight again at UFC despite his lucrative contract which brings us to hint that there have been some agreements between WWE and UFC. And the rumor mill started providing with the same exact feeds when the news broke out that WWE wants to make an appearance at Summerslam with UFC fighter Paige Van Zant. The initial planning is to book more UFC talents in upcoming WWE events by letting Brock Lesnar returning to the Octagon.
Adding fuel to the rumors, wrestlingINC.com suggests that much waiting return of the former UFC women’s Bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey inside a WWE ring is on the cards and that is going to happen either this year’s Summerslam or next year’s Wrestlemania which is going to be the 33rd edition of the grandest show. Ronda Rousey was allowed in an off appearance by UFC at Wrestlemania 31 where she ganged up on Triple H and Stephanie McMahon with some help from The Rock. The segment turned out to be one of the best moments in Wrestlemania history and won a Slammy award, too.
Since that moment, WWE Universe has been waiting to see more of Ronda Rousey inside the squared circle and especially after Ronda got beaten by Holly Holm at the UFC 193 pay-per-view where she had lost her undefeated streak as the Women’s Bantamweight champion. Ronda Rousey has been working with the UFC promotion since 2012 and may be its perfect time for her to change the ship for a while.
