Former UFC heavyweight champion Brock Lesnar got his first taste of stardom when he appeared as a WWE professional wrestler for several years. Lesnar was one of the company’s biggest stars for quite some time before he walked away to pursue other interests, one of which was becoming a professional mixed martial artist.

Now with Lesnar set to return to the Octagon for the first time in over a year when he faces former Strikeforce heavyweight champion Alistair Overeem at UFC 141 in December, the former Minnesota Golden Gopher is returning to his pro wrestling roots as well.

Well… sort of.

With UFC president Dana White’s blessing, Lesnar will appear in the new WWE: 12 video game being released by THQ.

It’s the first time Lesnar has appeared in any kind of WWE programming in several years, but he will be featured as a character in the new video game release from the pro wrestling giant.

Check out the trailer below to see Brock Lesnar in WWE: 12:

    He might as well go back to the WWE, because he won’t be winning any titles in MMA any time soon!
