Well, WWE is trying to indirectly related Brock's MMA past to pro wrestling ring without mentioning UFC, let alone MMA. They could just have him wear whatever he used to wear, but in order to draw MMA fans they have to connect to them somehow.

I believe WWE hasn't mentioned words like "MMA", "mixed martial art", "UFC", "cage fighting", etc. on air yet.

They've said UFC like 10 times. They showed pictures of him with the UFC belt on, pictures of his UFC fights, talked about him being UFC champ.

On Raw they did a whole video package/interview showing his career and they talked specifically about UFC (by name). They're def not straying from mentioning it directly. If anything they're doing the exact opposite. They wanna use UFC/MMA and the fact that he was champ in "real" fighting to make him seem like more of a force in WWE

They don't have a problem with UFC like they did with a company like WCW. But UFC is their competition nowadays whether they admit it or not. UFC took away a lot of fans that used to watch wrestling and they're beating WWE in the PPV market.

Honestly in this case I'm wondering if it was just something to speed along his surgery recovery. Especially at his age he probably needs that extra help

WWE needs to have a new WWE Championship Belt. I really hate the current design.



New Generation Era Belt



WWE Undisputed Championship.
