On Leaving the UFC Too Soon: "You've always got that part in your mind," Lesnar said. "I do miss it, but I've got to keep myself in check. What I went through the last few years was quite traumatic, not being able to fight like I wanted. I got back on the horse way too soon. Coulda, shoulda, woulda. That chapter in my life has come to closure, and I'm comfortable with it."
On His UFC Run Giving Him Leverage With WWE: "I'm at a different stage in my life where … I think I've earned all that," he said. "That was the only way I could make this happen. They [WWE] played ball and hopefully it's a win-win for both of us. I really do enjoy putting on a show. 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."
