There have been rumors surrounding Brock Lesnar for months. Some have been anxiously awaiting his return to the squared circle, while others have been anticipating a return to the octagon with the UFC. Well, the time for speculation is over, as Brock Lesnar made his official return to the WWE as part of The Authority’s big announcement on Monday Night Raw.
As usual, Lesnar was accompanied by his permanent manager and mouthpiece Paul Heyman. In the middle of the ring, Paul Heyman laid out Lesnar’s intentions upon his return. He is not here to “settle old scores”, nor is he there to “avenge” the beatings that were exacted upon Paul Heyman.
However, he does indeed intend on immediately pursuing the WWE World Heavyweight Championship.
During the final Monday Night Raw of 2013, the Beast vowed to come after whichever Superstar emerges from the WWE World Heavyweight Championship match at the Royal Rumble. According the Heyman, it doesn’t matter whether it is John Cena or Randy Orton that emerge victorious, because they will certainly lose to Lesnar.
Apparently, the World’s Strongest Man Mark Henry took exception to Lesnar’s claims. He made his way to the ring with the intention of laying a beat down on the Beast. Unfortunately for Henry, that is not how things would play out.
Lesnar would jump on Henry before he would even make it into the ring.
The two rather large superstars would battle it out on the outside of the ring. Henry would get the upper hand when he sent Lesnar flying over the barricade; however, after Henry pursued him, Lesnar was able to get to his feet, and he speared Henry straight through the barricade, sending Henry straight to the mat.
Then, Brock Lesnar would do what he does best; he would lift the 400+ pound Henry over his shoulder and deliver an F5.
Here is a look at how the events played out on live television courtesy of the WWE.
