Does WWE have a Brock Lesnar problem ahead of WrestleMania 34?

There are hurdles for Lesnar if he wants to return to the UFC, which could indicate that Sunday's photo-op with White and his apparent no-show of Monday Night Raw - we'll get to that in a minute - was nothing more than a negotiating ploy.

The WrestleMania 34 main event is set as Elimination Chamber victor Roman Reigns will take on Universal Champion Brock Lesnar for the throne.

"They're very, very, very good", White said with a chuckle when asked about odds on a return. Roman Reigns WrestleMania match is to get fans to cheer Roman Reigns leading up to his win.

The news making its way around the web today has Brock Lesnar ready to leave WWE for UFC when his contract comes up after WrestleMania 34. Over the weekend, UFC president, Dana White posted to his social media a picture of himself with former UFC heavyweight champion and current WWE Universal champion, Brock Lesnar.

According to Mike Johnson from PWInsider, the original plans for Lesnar's appearance was to have "a lengthy back and forth promo segment" between him and Reigns with Paul Heyman on Lesnar's behalf.

The former part owner of UFC was making an appearance on Sirius XM' Radio in the U.S. and was asked how good the chances of Lesnar returning were and he answered saying, "Very, very, very good".

Lesnar hasn't set foot inside the Octagon since his UFC 200 bout with Mark Hunt, which he won via unanimous decision.

Meltzer was also able to shoot down rumors that Lesnar legitimately no-showed the most recent episode of Monday Night Raw, saying that Lesnar's non-appearance at the show was a late rewrite.

Now both Lesnar and Reigns need to meet inside the squared circle, with the WWE's top prize on the line, to determine who's yard the WWE ring really is.

This could even lead to Lesnar not competing in the main event at WrestleMania. He stuck around in the WWE, which had given him permission to fight for the UFC once more at UFC 200. "Brock Lesnar is probably the healthiest fighter to enter UFC if he decides to do that".

Would you be excited to see Brock Lesnar back in the UFC?

I want to be clear about this: if you're still hating on Ronda Rousey, you may be dumb.
