Not everyday we can say Batista & Lesnar. What a very busy week its been for the WWE as they’ve reached out to former WWE champion, UFC fighter Brock Lesnar! Mr.Lesnar & WWE are in negotiations for him possibly make a surprise appearance at WrestleMania XXVIII this Sunday. Negotiations continue but a source familiar with the situation reports that it’s a 50-50 shot and that a deal could be finalized in the next 24 hours.

Brock Lesnar was a full time Wrestler in the WWE from 2002-2004 and during his tenure captured the WWE Championship three times, King of the Ring winner in 2002, and Royal Rumble winner in 2003. After leaving WWE he tried to pursue a career in the NFL but was cut after the preseason after playing for the Minnesota Vikings. He would then pursue a career in MMA that would ultimately land him in the UFC. During his 5 wins and 3 losses he captured the UFC title, battled a serious illness that sidelined him for several months and after coming back would lose his last two fights before shocking the entire MMA world at UFC 141 announcing his retirement from the UFC.

Dana White, President of Ultimate Fighting Championship President Dana White confirmed that Lesnar is not under contract to the UFC and is legally able to appear. Dana White would also say that he’s not aware if Lesnar will appear this Sunday.

It’s also being reported that former WWE wrestler Dave Batista has arrived in Miami and said to be picked up by the WWE. This seems to indicate that the two have some sort of business to conduct. Should be noted that Batista was already scheduled to be in Miami as he’s be at the 2012 Nautica Beach Triathlon this Sunday.

Batista was with the WWE from 2002-2010 and during his career captured the World Heavyweight Championship on 4 occasions, WWE championship twice, the WWE Tag Team titles, and won the Royal Rumble in 2005. He left the company in 2010 because he didn’t like the direction the company was going and wouldn’t be returning any time in the future. He would then try to pursue a MMA career but to date has been unsuccessful getting a deal.
