Report: Brock Lesnar Returns To WWE On One Year Contract, Dana White Fine With It

BE's Josh Nason (via Dave Meltzer) reported this morning that former UFC heavyweight champion Brock Lesnar was close to returning to his former home, World Wrestling Entertainment, at WrestleMania 28 tomorrow night. Now it appears that it will be on a much larger scale that a one-off appearance, and UFC president Dana White is fine with it. Dave Meltzer has the news (as usual):

Brock Lesnar has arrived in Miami and arrived with security and a large group of people shielding him from everyone. This is the going story, but not confirmed, that Lesnar has signed a one year deal and will work a more than Undertaker and less than Goldberg type of schedule.

MMA Fighting's Ariel Helwani asked Dana White about Lesnar reportedly going back to wrestling, and he seems fine with it:

Not sure if the rumors of Brock signing with WWE are true right now, but if you're wondering whether @danawhite/UFC would be ok with it ...

... He just told me, "yes." So that's that.

Ariel did make it clear that it was still a rumor and Dana wasn't confirming the rumor, he was simply commenting on how he'd feel if it was the truth. Either way though, it certainly seems like Lesnar will be stepping back into a WWE ring tomorrow night for the first time in over seven years.
