Dana White Says There Won't Be a Brock Lesnar-Undertaker Match
Over the past 48 hours, message boards on wrestling and MMA websites haven been running rampant with talk about a possible Brock Lesnar-Undertaker showdown at WrestleMania 27 following their staredown at UFC 121.
However, UFC president Dana White quickly but the kibosh on that thought.
"Brock Lesnar is still under contract with the UFC ... he is not going to wrestle in the WWE. He cannot wrestle, box or fight anywhere else," White told TMZ.com.
You could understand why White would not allow his top draw to go back to wrestling, even for one mega-match.
There have been plenty of conspiracy theorists that believe that it was more than just coincidence that the two superstars crossed paths. But WWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross is one of the few people that thinks it was truly just a chance meeting.
"I have a hard time believing that the much-talked about 'confrontation' for the lack of a better term, and there has to be one, between 'Taker and Brock was staged," Ross wrote on his blog. "Perhaps I'm naive but that's what I think at this time. Cutting to the chase, I certainly don't foresee a WrestleMania 27 match between Lesnar and Undertaker in Atlanta's Georgia Dome even though the speculation on this matter is running rampant."
Mind you, if a match of this proportion were to take place on a stage like WrestleMania, you would think J.R. would be frothing at the mouth to return to the announcer's booth one more time to call the action.
But it now looks like the match won't be happening. It was nice to think about all the possibilities of a huge showdown between those two and the hype going into it.
Too bad. Let's just keep our fingers crossed and hope for a miracle.
