Brock Lesnar, said he retired ’cause he made a promise to his family that he’ll hang it up if he lost his fight against Overeem last night. When Brock made the not so surprising announcement last night, I kept thinking that Brock and Sable must have had an argument about Brock continuing to fight even though he has health problems. If it wasn’t for Sable, I’m pretty sure, Brock would have kept his career going, because MMA and caged fighting is Brock’s passion. He gave it up ’cause his family wanted it.
Brock retiring wasn’t Dana White’s decision, it was all Brock’s himself. Dana would probably let him keep going if he wanted to.
So all this, tells me that Sable (Rena Mero), must of been extremely worried about Brock continuing to fight, so she talked him into retiring and begged him to stop. When Brock was out there, last night, he didn’t look very good. Something says about him that he isn’t really a 100% that he claimed.
Brock calling it quits was probably a smart move. If he kept going, he could get killed out in the Octagon.
Everyone is already wondering what’s next for Brock if he’ll go back to WWE or do other things in his career. Maybe he’ll do some acting in movies or he could continue to write books. He’ll find himself a new job ’cause he needs the money to take care of his family. It’ll be interesting to see what Brock is planning to do next.
If he goes to WWE full time, he’ll be away from his family a lot more, so I don’t think he’ll go for a full time run. Maybe a part time run.
