I could see Lesnar doing a match or two for big money in the future in WWE, but there is no way he will return as a full time wrestler. He hated the travel.

I think its spot on. WWE is a sensitive topic for dana. This sport is still in its infancy and the last thing dana needs is to associate itself with an entertainment sport that has fixed results. Although everyone on this forum are educated about mma, the sad thing is that most people in this world have no clue how this sport works. If they see UFC's biggest star (in terms of popularity) in an event like that, I'm not sure what people might think.

Although I can agree with you that there are things that Dana White can do better to build this sport, I like to challenge you to name 5 people that has done more for this sport than him.

Like him or not, he has been the major reason MMA is now covered by the likes of SI and ESPN. It was less than 20 years ago when MMA was described as "human cock fighting" by Senator John McCain. Of course there have been many people that have been instrumental to helped develop this sport, but Dana White is definitely one of them.

Exactly. A lot of fighters have left the WWE for this and it played a big part for Lesnar as well. I'm sure he will do some matches for the WWE once he's MMA career is over but it still early for this.
