… And in Entertainment news this week, Brock Lesnar returned to the WWE.

In his first role in the live-action theatre drama, he shoots a double and puts John Cena on his back before ground-and-pounding him with elbows and hammer fists to earn a stoppage win.

No. Scratch that.

Lesnar comes in with thunderous leg kicks — alternating between inside and outside — before getting hold of Cena’s head and forcing him to tap to a standing guillotine choke.

No. Scratch that too.

The script for the former UFC heavyweight champ’s return to fake fighting called for him to extend a ‘pretend’ handshake to Cena on Monday Night Raw and using the ruse to pick Cena up over his head a-la-helicopter and slamming him to the mat with his patented F-5 slam.

Funny, I don’t remember many F-5s during his MMA days. I guess it’s a little different when the other guy doesn’t play along.

Now, not questioning Lesnar’s athleticism for a second, but it’s a little like the righting of the Earth’s axis to see him back where he belongs.

I, for one, can’t think of a better home for the loud-mouthed, brash and often times ignorant Lesnar. He did little to build the credibility of the sport and, if anything, cheapened it.

There is something seriously wrong when The Undertaker is one of the featured stars in the stands during a UFC pay-per-view.

Just doesn’t seem right.

Brock, I will NOT miss you though I wish you nothing but success in your return to an acting career.
