If Josh Koscheck drew the strongest reaction from the fans amongst personalities in the crowd who weren’t fighting at UFC 121, then The Undertaker was right behind him. Being 6’10″ and wearing a bandanna around your head, you’re going to stand out. After the Brock Lesnar-Cain Velasquez main event came to a close, Lesnar sauntered through the crowd on his way back to the locker room. The Undertaker, who had premium seats, got into Brock’s face. Little did I know that Ariel Helwani was there interviewing The Undertaker at the time and caught it all on camera:
LBS contributor Alan Hull, who shared the story with us, says the conspiracy theory is that The Undertaker and WWE wants to get Brock Lesnar back into wrestling to fight at Wrestlemania 27. I don’t think it’s going to happen.
First off, Lesnar didn’t love his time in WWE and hasn’t done it for a while, so I’m guessing he won’t be anxious to get back until he’s absolutely done in MMA. Second, just because he lost to Cain Velasquez doesn’t mean he’s done fighting in the UFC. You know he wants to get back to being a champion, and his message after the loss was that he would regroup and bounce back the way a champion does. He won’t go back to wrestling until his MMA career is over. That’s probably five years away, if it ever happens.
