WrestleMania 34: Brock Lesnar Surprisingly Defends Title; What About UFC Return?

Paul Heyman and CM Punk

Anticipation for the Reigns/Lesnar rematch has been building since then, and in a different world would have marked the supreme coronation of Roman Reigns as WWE's top guy. But that may not be Lesnar's only big fight over the coming months.

The marquee mixed tag team match pitting Kurt Angle and Ronda Rousey against Triple H and Stephanie McMahon was next and this match more than exceeded expectations.

From there, Suplex City made an appearance, as it was one German suplex after another.

When Nakamura did attempt the move, Styles caught his leg and expertly transitioned into his Styles Clash to get an unexpected victory. Lesnar nails a charging Reigns with another F-5 for the three count.

McMahon was also said to be upset at the bump on the German announcer's table and the announcers were not prepared for it. One of these bizarre-bad moments was Brock Lesnar's shocking retention of the Universal Title. A bloody Reigns attempts another comeback, but Lesnar delivered the sixth F5 of the match, which is finally enough to finish off Reigns. I'd been looking forward to it; back at WrestleMania 31, Reigns and Lesnar had a great match until it was interrupted by Seth Rollins cashing in an "any time, anywhere" title shot mid-match to make the contest into a three-way. Whatever they do now, my prediction is that she faces Charlotte Flair - who also had a fantastic match on Sunday against Asuka - in the main event of WrestleMania 35. The original story follows.

WWE issued a new press release earlier today confirming that Brock Lesnar has re-signed a new contract with the WWE.

Backpage.com Shut Down by Federal Bureau of Investigation
Federal Bureau of Investigation officials in Phoenix confirmed earlier on Friday that they had raided Lacey's home. They designated Backpage , mentioning dozens of circumstances in which minors had been trafficked via the website.

That being said, it's the aftermath of the main event at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans that has people talking.

But is that what will really happen?

UFC president Dana White stoked talk of the massive wrestler trading his boots for four-ounce gloves after his previous WWE contract had expired, even telling reporters odds of Lesnar's return to the Octogon were "very, very good". He was reportedly given the permission for the one-off by WWE chairman Vince McMahon. In recent weeks, the focus shifted to Brock continually kicking the living s*** out of Reigns in episode after episode of Raw.

Lesnar has become a polarising figure in the WWE after it was announced he would leave the company.

What if, however, it doesn't go the way we're all assuming? If you thought things got physical on Sunday night, note that this time around, Lesnar and Reigns will battle inside the confines of a steel cage.
