Lesnar to exit WWE, will make UFC comeback

Lesnar to exit WWE, will make UFC comeback”

Remember how expertly WWE and Lesnar trolled us three years ago in the walkup to WrestleMania 31, to the point where we all tuned in to a live Lesnar ESPN interview in which he was supposed to confirm his pending departure for UFC? "They're very, very, very good". With Lesnar originally being advertised for Raw, what were the plans for the Universal Champion if he were to show up last Monday?

WrestleMania 34 is now set for April 8 in New Orleans.

Reigns cut a scathing promo on Lesnar for not showing up, claiming he had no respect for the WWE.

It could very well be that Lesnar opted not to come to Raw as part of hardline negotiating tactics with WWE.

BB&T reports services are returning
The problem locked customers out of widely used services such as online banking and the mobile banking app since Thursday evening. Much of central North Carolina was impacted by the outage, along with the Washingto D.C., Atlanta and Philadelphia regions.

After Elimination Chamber left us with Roman Reigns as the No. 1 contender for the WWE Universal Championship, it seems we are officially on the Road To Fastlane WrestleMania, folks - but apparently WWE's taxpayer dollars haven't been allocated in the appropriate ways. Of course, Lesnar is still under suspension for failing a USADA drug test in relation to UFC 200.

Who knows what Lesnar has in store now that his deal is nearly up? As per the write-up, Lesnar was set to travel to Anaheim for the show, but creative changed their minds at the 11th hour, meaning they had to rewrite a planned in-ring confrontation between him and Reigns.

What followed was the eternal WWE debate, was this a shoot or a work?

The former heavyweight champion may have retired after testing positive for a banned substance surrounding his last fight at UFC 200 that ended with a one year suspension from the sport, but that has never stopped speculation that he may return to compete again.

Advisory warns of "exceptionally cold weather" for Ireland
A cold snap is set to hit Ireland over the coming days and disruptive snow showers are likely, according to Met Eireann . For the rest of the week, temperatures will remain cold but will rise above freezing for the rest of the week.

If Lesnar decides to leave WWE and pursue one more run with UFC, he wouldn't be able to fight right away.

Expect Paul Heyman, Lesnar's mouthpiece, to make reference to the possibility of his client jumping ship to the UFC in April.

Just when you thought it would indeed be Derrick Lewis' face superimposed onto the body of the old man from "Home Alone", you see the face of Jeff Novitzky, the UFC's VP of Athlete Health and Performance (but more notably one of the bigger names in the fight against steroid use in pro sports).
