Update On Brock Lesnar’s Return To Action

Will Hengelbrok

Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer is confirming that preliminary talks have started with FEG about potential new opponents for Brock Lesnar. Four names are possibly up for consideration, which are Tank Abbott, Ruben Villareal, Butterbean and James Thompson.

Both Abbott or Butterbean would have the most marquee value as a fpossible “freak show” fight for the U.S. PPV audience. Thompson is a question mark because his own management and also because his Pride deal might get in the way.Tank Abbott has verbally said he would do the fight if asked.

Bob Sapp is another name also under consideration but we’ve been able to confirm FEG has talked about those names today and done preliminary inquiries about them.
