For the first time since March 2004, Brock Lesnar returned to the ring in the WWE. His opponent was John Cena in an extreme rules match in the main event of the Extreme Rules pay-per-view.
Lesnar came out wearing some familiar gear (MMA shorts and MMA gloves) to go along with his wrestling boots and knee pads. He opened the match with a takedown and then some trademark ground-and-pound. He landed an elbow that cut Cena’s head wide open. Cena tried to rally, but Lesnar took right back over, forcing the doctor’s to come in and take a look at the cut.
The match was allowed to continue and Lesnar pounds on Cena some more. After wiping Cena’s blood on his chest and then licking some of it, he knees Cena out of the ring and tells John to “bring it!”.
The match would continue in a direction that would lead all to assume that the ‘Next Big Thing’ would be victorious. After a failed kimura attempt, Lesnar hits Cena with a brutal flying knee. Lesnar pulls Cena off the ground to deliver the ‘F5’ but Cena surprises Lesnar by hitting him in the face with a chain. Cena stalks him and lifts him up for an ‘Attitude Adjustment’ and hits it with Brock landing onto the steps. Referee steps in and counts one, two, three. Cena wins.
Coming off his third loss in a row, one must wonder what type of confidence Brock has left. Losing to Cain and Alistair is one thing but Cena?
Something tells me the former UFC Champion won’t lose any sleep over the loss though, with his 5 million dollar contract and all. In fact, he is still probably enjoying life more than his last UFC opponent (Alistair Overeem), who won’t be seeing a fight purse any time soon.Tags: alistair overeem, Brock Lesnar, Cain Velasquez, featured, John Cena, ufc, WWE
