Original WWE Idea for Brock Lesnar and Undertaker at UFC 121

WWE sources indicate this week that their original idea for an Undertaker and Brock Lesnar confrontation at UFC 121 was for it to take place backstage after the show, likely at the press conference where cameras were.

Lesnar lost, needed stitches and had decided not to appear at the press conference. Taker and McCool were backstage after the show but left when it was obvious that Brock wasn’t coming out for the press conference.

The video filmed with Ariel Helwani in the crowd, which has been viewed millions of times online, turned out to be a lucky coincidence for WWE as their original plan ended up falling through.
