Former WWE announcer and WWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross has updated his website at JRsBarBQ.com, and has given an extensive blog entry on former WWE Champion turned UFC fighter Brock Lesnar regarding the return of his illness that almost stopped his career previously, his possible return to WWE, and Shane Carwin taking Lesnar’s spot. Below are a few of the highlights:
Lesnar’s Illness: “Brock battled diverticulitis once before and the gastrointestinal ailment is a devastating foe. I’ve had diverticulitis and ended up having approximately 13 inches of my large intestine surgically removed while residing in intensive care for several days after the surgery. Diverticulitis is weak places in the wall of the colon that give away under pressure to form marble sized pouches that protrude through the colon wall. Mild cases of the ailment can be cured, as a rule, via rest, diet (little, red meat, no nuts or seeds, etc), and via the use of antibiotics. If the above listed treatments are unsuccessful, surgery becomes a more likely option. At some point the body must be freed of the toxins, essentially poisons, that take over one’s internal organs.
Whether Brock Lesnar Will Ever Return To WWE: The ‘Brock back to WWE rumors’ have already started which is an eye roller in my opinion. Brock is a UFC fighter. Brock was born to be a UFC fighter. Brock will be a UFC fighter until he decides otherwise. If Lesnar, for some highly unlikely reason can’t compete again in UFC, ‘perhaps’ he would entertain the thought of a one off, special appearance in WWE, like WrestleMania but that well may be nothing more than wishful thinking on some folk’s part and is, without question, nothing more than pure speculation.”
Shane Carwin Taking Lesnar’s Place Against Junior dos Santos: “MMA folks can now turn their attention to Shane Carwin taking this higher level fight on somewhat short notice even though Carwin had already been in training. Carwin’s a beast who can be problematic for any heavyweight but Dos Santos has such great hands that Carwin, or anyone else, must have keen, striking defense to withstand what Dos Santos will bring. However, the powerful and bigger Carwin has the distinct edge in this one IF he can take Junior down and utilize debilitating devastation while controlling a talented, strike first fighter who also wants to be the next UFC Heavyweight Champion.
