re: Brock Lesnar to fight at UFC 200

My thing is, if he does get his ass kicked in UFC, does that kill his WWE "rub"?

re: Brock Lesnar to fight at UFC 200

I could see Vince being open to the opportunity to get Brock some press since he isn't doing much of significance in WWE lately. It's Dana White who I'd be surprised would agree to the crossover.

I remember Brock saying somewhere that WWE has already used up most (all?) of his dates for 2016, so that does open the door for him to do something else schedule-wise. You'd think he'd do SummerSlam. Maybe he could do both? Weird news.

His loss to Overeem, his last UFC match, didn't hurt him much and the Brock/Cena match still drew well on PPV, so probably not much. Being active in both WWE and UFC could change things, though. WWE will spin it either way.

I really don't see Brock beating anybody in the top 8. Maybe a Todd Duffee type fighter.

Since they would need Vince's approval I wonder if we will see Conor or Ronda fight a wrasslin match for Wrestlemania or Summerslam.
I think that was the trade off. Favor for favor. White probably went into a panic mode anyway and worked out this deal to get a buyrates boost since the winning streaks of Rousey and McGregor ended.

No since WWE constantly glosses over Lesnar's UFC tenure.

I guess there is no need for Brock in WWE anymore since he makes the other top guys like Reigns and Cena seem inferior.

Brock is a wrestler at heart so it's too easy for him where at least UFC gives him a challenge.

Well, Brock Lesnar isn't contracted by the UFC so I don't see why Dana White would be against it. The reason he was against Ronda Roussey having a match in WWE was because he was afraid of her getting hurt. If Brock Lesnar gets hurt in UFC 200, Dana loses nothing.

Lets face it WWE is a predetermined show for kids so there is no "rub" in reality.

The kids are there to watch Roman Reigns do his superman punch.

re: Brock Lesnar to fight at UFC 200

I don't see how Brock loosing at UFC effects his WWE rub. WWE is scripted and UFC is legit fighting. Unless Taker faces Brock at UFC Lol. I think it well still be intact. I mean WWE and UFC are two seperate things. Scripted vs Reality. I think Brock being in the UFC gives WWE credibility. You know. He competes in real fights, it makes Brock maybe the most credible WWE superstar of all time. I actually could see Rock doing UFC too, even currently. IF his movie scheudle wasen't so vast. I am sure they well iron out a deal, where he can do this and WWE. Talent can do two things at once.

re: Brock Lesnar to fight at UFC 200

This is some dirt sheet bullshit is what it is written by a guy who doesn't watch WWE so he doesn't know Brock JUST signed a multi year WWE deal even announcing it on ESPN.
