Top 50 WWE Moments of 2012

Brock Lesnar returns to WWE

We all know WrestleMania is The Showcase of the Immortals; the place where Superstars become Legends. It’s an event so big the entire WWE Universe waits all year for that one, special night. So what happens when it’s over? What happens after The Grandest Stage of Them All is cleared?

Well, one night after WrestleMania XXVIII, Brock Lesnar happened.

Just 24 hours removed from the epic “Once in a Lifetime” battle between The Rock and John Cena and The Undertaker extended his streak to an unfathomable 20-0, the WWE Universe was rocked to its core yet again.

When the familiar, screeching opening guitar strain of “Here Comes the Pain” blared through the speaker system at Miami’s AmericanAirlines Arena on the April 2 episode of Raw SuperShow, the building came unglued. Brock was back, and he had his sights set squarely on John Cena.

One thundering F-5 to the Cenation leader later, and the WWE Universe knew the WWE landscape had changed.
