WWE: Update on The Undertaker’s Confrontation With Brock Lesnar!

Here are some more notes on the confrontation between Brock Lesnar and The Undertaker after Lesnar’s loss at UFC 121 last Saturday night:

* Taker and Michelle McCool’s tickets were provided by UFC, which is nothing out of the ordinary.

* Taker chartered a flight from Anaheim, California to Minneapolis, Minnesota since he didn’t want to risk flying commercial and having problems that would get him to the building late.

* It’s said that almost nobody knew about the confrontation before it happened. UFC boss Dana White was out of the loop as well as MMA journalist Ariel Helwani, who did the interview. It was luck that Helwani was there interviewing Taker as even if he wasn’t, the confrontation would have went down.

* A lot of people thought the confrontation was legit based on heat between the two in the past. While Taker and Lesnar were never best friends, there was always mutual respect between the two.

* Dana White has made it clear he won’t allow any contracted UFC fighter to do pro wrestling and told TMZ they have Lesnar signed to an exclusive contract that doesn’t allow him to do boxing or wrestling, without UFC’s permission.

* There has been talk going around about Lesnar working WrestleMania 27 in a deal similar to that of Floyd Mayweather from a few years back. Some sources don’t believe a formal offer was made but are sure that the talk did exist. This information was a well guarded secret that very few people knew about.

* WWE creative didn’t know what was real or worked the next day but were eventually clued in and told to start coming up with ideas. There is talk this week of Lesnar special refereeing Undertaker’s WrestleMania match, which now could be against Kane or Wade Barrett.
