Brock Lesnar's history as a pro wrestler is what made him the draw that he is in the UFC. Despite concerns that his star in mixed martial arts may be fading after taking some pretty massive amounts of punishment in his past two outings, he is about to get another round of exposure as he signed a deal to be a big part of the new WWE video game.

TMZ has the story:

After SEVEN YEARS apart, UFC pain machine Brock Lesnar is getting back into business with the company that put him on the map -- WWE -- in a deal that will make him the "featured star" in a brand new video game.

...

TMZ spoke with [Dana] White, who told us, "I love WWE and I have nothing but love for Vince McMahon -- I'm totally OK with Brock being in the game."

We're told the first commercial for the game -- starring Brock -- will be released tomorrow.

Will this have any impact on Lesnar interest by introducing WWE fans who weren't around for the glory days of "The Next Big Thing?"
