Over the weekend, Brock Lesnar lost the UFC Heavyweight Championship to Cain Velasquez and the Undertaker was buried alive by his brother at Bragging Rights. Despite these two newsworthy items, the big story involving these two men is a verbal altercation the two had on Saturday night.
The Undertaker was at Saturday night's fight and was interviewed by Fanhouse.com following Brock's loss. During the interview, Brock Lesnar passed the Undertaker. When Lesnar stared down the Undertaker, the Undertaker replied "Do you want to do it?".
The big question for wrestling fans is whether there was some legitimate heat between the two men or whether this was a setup for a potential bout between the two men at WrestleMania XXVII. My guess is that this is the first step towards a bout between the two men at the big event.
We are only five months away from WrestleMania and one of the biggest moments of the show will be the Undertaker putting his 18-0 undefeated streak on the line. With the exception of a match against John Cena, there aren't any big-time matches that the Undertaker can have with an opponent for the first time at a WrestleMania event. Getting Brock Lesnar allows the WWE to save that Cena-Undertaker match for another year and more importantly will the event tons of mainstream exposure.
Brock's pro wrestling career ended at WrestleMania XX in a terrible bout against Goldberg. Brock's main reasons for leaving wrestling were due to the constant travel and busy schedule. With a return for only one night, he wouldn't have to deal with either one of those problems. Even though he left the company on very bad terms, Vince McMahon has almost always fixed broken bridges when it comes time to make some money. I am sure that it will take a lot of money to get Brock to come back for one night but I would be shocked if they couldn't work something out.
