In today's Minneapolis Tribune, Sid Hartman wrote the following:

"Friends of former Gophers and pro wrestler Brock Lesnar say he is ready to make a comeback."

While it wasn't specified what he'd be coming back to, since his whole career was amateur and than pro wrestling, and that's all that he left to be able to "come back to", pro wrestling would make the most sense. With the big Royal Rumble and WrestleMania shows upcoming from WWE, now is perfect timing.

Brock Lesnar has been calling Vince McMahon on a weekly basis, but Vince has yet to return his messages. Vince may be trying to send a message to Lesnar that he is the one who has the power where these negotiations lie.

Lesnar has a non-compete clause which does not allow him to join any other fighting promoting including TNA, MMA, K-1, and many others. Basically, Lesnar has no bargaining power when it comes to WWE at this point. If he was brought back for a return, many think he will have to re-earn the respect of his co-horts and Vince, due to the way he left. He would likely have to do the job to many to get back in the good graces of management too.

Many also believe that Vince will eventually sit down with Lesnar and discuss a return because of what is best for WWE. Sources say Lesnar hopes this is sooner than later, as his finances are dwindling already.

There are many reports that Lesnar wishes to work part-time, something WWE is not too high on. Lesnar wants to do this to cut down on the travel time as that was his main reason for leaving WWE. This issue may lead to Lesnar not re-signing with WWE in the future.

Earlier we reported a story about Brock Lesnar working in Japan for Antonio Inoki's wrestling organization. However, WWE has a no compete clause which prevents Brock Lesnar from wrestling for any other company, which is still in effect. This won't effect Lesnar appearing for a company, but he won't be able to lace up the boots and work a match (or a fight for an MMA organization, something Inoki also dabs in from time-to-time).

According to The Torch, Brock Lesnar has not been able to get past Vince McMahon's secretary Beth when trying to call the WWE chairman about a return. He has made a number of calls, but negotiations up to this point have not gone anywhere.

Although WWE did not have a problem with Lesnar's decision to leave to play football, they were less than satisfied with his interview remarks that seemed to put down WWE and pro wrestling in general. Thus, the decision to bring Lesnar back has some hurdles and will not be as easy as most suggested at the time the former champion left the company.

Additionally, many feel the fact that Lesnar's failure to even make the practice squad of an NFL team severely hurt his leverage in return negotiations. WWE would have seized on the opportunity to bring a successful NFL player back, but now that Lesnar has gone from a top WWE wrestler to a failed NFL hopeful, he is not even as big a star as when he left the company. For a WWE return to occur, his attitude would need to change and accept that he does not have as much bargaining power as he did before leaving.

Lesnar was also not a serious financial draw, so WWE does not see a return as imminent. While most believe a return to the company is inevitable, many backstage believe Lesnar should not immediately return to the main event and should have to 'pay his dues' once again for leaving and badmouthing WWE the way he did. Of course, the other school of thought is that if he is brought back as a main-eventer, his return will seem important from a storyline-perspective.

Brock Lesnar arrived in Tokyo, Japan earlier this morning with his fiance, Rena Mero aka Sable. Lesnar will be at the New Japan Pro Wrestling event tommorrow in the Tokyo Dome.

Lesnar told the press there that he is interested in being in New Japan, K-1, and PRIDE, but is not allowed to do anything but watch until his contract is up with WWE.

Lesnar also stated that he "may do something" at the event tommorrow.

Brock Lesnar and his fiance Sable (Rena Mero) both attended the Tokyo Dome Event on Jan. 4th as guests of Antonio Inoki. Lesnar still has a no-compete clause that runs past 2005 which would prevent him from "wrestling" with any other organization. It appears as if Lesnar has made attempts to call Vince McMahon about returning to the WWE, but at this time it is unclear whether or not Vince has even bothered to return those phone calls. There is a possibility however, that the WWE may try to keep this tight-lipped so that if Lesnar was to return that it would be a complete surprise. However, as mentioned earlier, Lesnar has been demanding alot for a return and it still appears that Vince is nowhere near giving into all of those demands.
