The American Airlines Arena in Miami almost had the roof come off on Monday, and it had nothing to do with the Miami Heat.

Former UFC heavyweight champion Brock Lesnar has officially returned to the WWE, and made his first appearance during Monday Night Raw in Miami.

Speculation had been running wild for the past week or so that Lesnar was in negotiations to return to the WWE, an organization he was a part of for several years beginning back in 2002.

The rumors were that Lesnar was in negotiation for a one-year contract with the pro wrestling promotion, and on Monday night he officially made his return.

With the crowd reaching a fevered pitch, Lesnar’s intro music hit. A few moments later, the one time UFC champion walked back onto the WWE stage for the first time in more than seven years. Lesnar immediately made his impact felt with an attack on WWE superstar John Cena.

Lesnar came, saw, and conquered his first night back in pro wrestling and never said a word on the mic.

Lesnar officially retired from active MMA competition at the close of 2011 after suffering a TKO loss to current contender Alistair Overeem at UFC 141.

Over the past two years, Lesnar has dealt with a couple crippling bouts of diverticulitis that kept him out of fighting for many months. Unfortunately for Lesnar, the former NCAA champion from Minnesota lost his last two bouts in the Octagon before calling it a career.

Prior to that, Lesnar had reeled off four straight wins including capturing the UFC heavyweight title, as well as picking up wins over UFC Hall of Famer Randy Couture and former champion Frank Mir.

Lesnar ended his career with a 5-3 record in MMA.

Now Lesnar has returned to his roots in the WWE. There’s no telling how active his schedule will be, but judging by the reception he received in Miami, the pro wrestling world is more than happy to have him back.
