Brock Lesnar on WWE run: 'I'm in at least a couple more WrestleManias'

Brock Lesnar tells the Los Angeles Times that his current run with WWE is going well and he's "in for at least a couple more WrestleManias."

What's this? Did Brock Lesnar, the notoriously reclusive viking from the stone age who just loves to farm and hunt and get on top of his wife and drink beer (Coors Light cause Bud Light won't pay him nothing), actually do an interview with a major media publication?

Indeed he did.

The Los Angeles Times caught up with "THE BEAST" to talk about his current WWE run, his return to professional wrestling, and how long we can expect him to stick around.

His replies:

"I left originally because I was a caged animal 300 days a year on the road and they knew that. That was the bottom line - I don't want to be that person. I'm at a different stage in my life where I think I've earned all that. That was the only way I could make this happen. They played ball and hopefully it's a win-win for both of us. I really do enjoy putting on a show. ... [I'm] in at least a couple more WrestleManias."

Because he's done so much in his career, both in pro wrestling and MMA, it's easy to forget that Lesnar is just 36-years-old and doesn't actually have the same wear and tear on his body that so many others do. When he realized what working in the industry could do to him during his initial run, he cut bait.

In many ways, diverticulitis aside, that's helped save his body.

That said, as long as WWE is willing to pay him a large sum of money to work just 24 dates a year, which only includes maybe three matches total, there's no way he's going to turn that down.

So, if you're not a fan, sorry, but he'll just keep coming back for more. Because why wouldn't he?
