Video: Brock Lesnar talks WWE '12, Stone Cold Steve Austin and Alistair Overeem

Here comes the pain!

Brock Lesnar is back and he's still using Stone Cold Steve Austin to promote the WWE '12 video game. In the above video, Lesnar is interviewed by Paul Heyman, who gets a few good answers out of him. When asked if fans can ever expect to see Brock pull off another F-5, the artist formerly known as "The Next Big Thing" just smiles and says to go buy the game and do it as much as you want.

That's brilliant on two levels. It sells the game and maintains the illusion that he might return to WWE someday. Will he? That's doubtful at the moment but you know what they say in the wrestling business -- never say never, folks.

Lesnar also talks about his upcoming fight against Alistair Overeem at UFC 141 on Dec. 30 in Las Vegas, Nevada:

"I don't have a lot to say to Alistair Overeem. Here's a guy that is getting his chance to make his name in the UFC and unfortunately for him there's a gatekeeper that stands in his way and that's Brock Lesnar. And I will prove on that night that I am, once again, and will always be, the baddest dude on the planet."

He's back and better than ever. Or so he says. Thoughts?
