From JR's blog @ http://www.jrsbarbq.com

Wall of text incoming i'm afraid:

My phone was blowing up with text messages regarding Brock losing his title and the subsequent interview that was done with Undertaker where Brock made somewhat of a 'walk on,' cameo appearance at ringside as Lesnar was leaving the Octagon to return to his locker room.

The post fight interview the Undertaker did wasn't even scheduled beforehand as I understand it. The same reporter interviewed me at the last Lesnar fight and that one, along with interviews he did with Steve Austin and Bill Goldberg, were not scheduled in advance either. I have a hard time believing that the much talked about 'confrontation' for the lack of a better term, and there has to be one, between 'Taker and Brock was staged. Perhaps I'm naive but that's what I think at this time.

Cutting to the chase, I certainly don't foresee a Wrestlemania 27 match between Lesnar and Undertaker in Atlanta's Georgia Dome even though the speculation on this matter is running rampant. First of all, Brock has moved on to UFC, a legit sport, and, even though he lost the UFC Heavyweight Title to a very talented, young man in Cain Velásquez Saturday night, Lesnar has many lucrative years remaining in his UFC career that he would be foolish to not pursue. WWE, an entertainment entity, could offer Lesnar massive money for a one time return to the marquis event of the year, BTW Lesnar isn't going back on the road with any regularity for any amount of money, but there is one, small detail that many have neglected to consider.

Brock Lesnar is contractually obligated to UFC and there is no way in hell that UFC officials are ever....ever going to allow Lesnar to return to the WWE world while Brock is still under. So the 'Oliver Stone's' with their conspiracy theories will likely surmise that perhaps Brock has a 'loop hole' in his contract that would allow him to return to WWE, pick up a huge payday and then be back home in Minnesota before breakfast the morning after Wrestlemania in Atlanta.

I'm not a lawyer and have never played one on TV but Lesnar vs Undertaker seems like wishful thinking.

The next theory that will be explored will likely be that Lesnar could be the 'special, guest referee,' for the Undertaker's bout at the Georgia Dome with whoever it may be against.

More wishful thinking.

Again, I would be shocked if UFC would allow one of their biggest stars to cross back over into sports-entertainment while said star is active and relevant..and in Brock's case, very relevant. Imagine the confusion in the market place that month on PPV.

To play this fantasy fueled scenario out even farther, I expect to get emails or Tweets @JRsBBQ saying it will be Goldberg vs. Taker with Brock the Referee at Wrestlemania 27.

If you really believe that then I'll take some of what your having and refrain from operating heavy machinery.

I'll agree that a potential Undertaker-Lesnar, one on one match at WM27 is intriguing. It would be a 'must see' PPV and would garner lots of media coverage and would likely do 1M plus PPV buys.

Too bad it likely can't happen.

Also on a side note, Perry Saturn's made an appearance from the shadows again, JR also said in that blog post:

After my long day/short night scenario on Saturday I took the first flight out of KC to Minneapolis for WWE's Bragging Rights Spay per view Sunday night.

It was good seeing old friends like Jack Lanza, Sir Oliver Humperdink, Perry Saturn, Bill Irwin and Greg Gagne prior to the PPV at the Target Center which, ironically, was the first place that I ever met Brock Lesnar.

Re: JR comments in depth on Taker / Lesnar, just to put all of your speculation to re

JR knows the score. People get so wrapped up with what they want to happen that common sense doesn't figure to them.

The Perry Saturn appearance is so random, good to know the dude's still alive.
