Here comes the pain.

In an episode of Monday Night Raw on April 2, in front of an amazing, enthusiastic crowd, Brock Lesnar made his return to the WWE. In the final segment on the show, John Cena came to the ring and started talking about how he lost at Wrestlemania but that he respects The Rock and won't let one loss keep him from fighting on.

As I began to fall asleep during this boring, lame promo, the fans started getting on Cena's case. They started chanting "We want Lesnar." In order to keep them waiting, Cena kept talking about The Rock and then finally asked for The Rock to come to the ring so they could shake hands.

Then Brock Lesnar's music hit and the arena went completely nuts.

Lesnar showed up in Miami the night before and went to Wrestlemania, where he worked out the arrangements for a one-year contract to return to the WWE. Everyone assumed he might show up at Wrestlemania to start a year-long feud with either The Undertaker or The Rock, and culminate with a match at next year's Wrestlemania.

Neither happened, and he showed up, shut up Cena with an F5, and then celebrated with the crowd as Cena was laid out in the middle of the ring.

The question that immediately popped up was whether Dana White would be ok with this. The WWE has a no-compete clause in their contracts and that keeps their wrestlers from popping up on other shows immediately after leaving the company. The reason is to simply keep rival companies from making money off stars they built up.

There is a case where Dana White could feel the same. Sure, the WWE developed Lesnar as a character but White allowed him to prove to be a legitimate tough guy in the UFC. Now, returning to the WWE, he is worth more than ever, a former UFC and WWE Champion.

MMAFighting's Ariel Helwanit asked Dana White if he would be ok with Lesnar heading back to the WWE after abruptly quitting the UFC. According the Helwanit, White said "he would be ok with it."

The fact is that there should be no reason for White to object to it. Because of his deteriorating health, Lesnar can't compete in shoot fights anymore. However, with wrestling he can control his bumps and there shouldn't be any problems.

Brock Lesnar has returned to the WWE and he is bigger than he was when he left. If you ask me, this can help both the UFC and WWE gain recognition and should be nothing but positive for everyone involved.
