Brock Lesnar returned to an octagon for the first time in five years and looked like he had never left in his fight against Mark Hunt, dominating the veteran fighter.

Lesnar out-wrestled the New Zealander, putting his amateur wrestling skills to good use as he showed he became NCAA and UFC heavyweight champion while managing to keep Hunt's ferocious striking at bay in the stand-up game. 

While they may be jealous of the part-time schedule that Brock has, his WWE superstar counterparts let it be known that they were watching Lesnar and rooting for him.

We'll start off with two top dogs, Vince McMahon and Triple H, who paid tribute to Lesnar after his resounding victory. 

"To come back after all the time and put on that kind of performance speaks to the once in a lifetime type of athlete that Brock is," Triple H said according to Jonathan Coachman, as the former WWE employee was working the post-fight show. 

"Brock is the most formidable combat athlete in the history of the country," Vince McMahon added.

Randy Orton, Lesnar's opponent at WWE SummerSlam later this year, congratulated the big man before adding that he can't wait for their match.

Other WWE colleagues and those in the world of wrestling also posted their congratulations. 

After seeing Lesnar collect $2.5million guaranteed for his fight against Hunt, more than all but five members of the WWE roster receive annually, one has to wonder if other WWE stars will consider a move over to the UFC.
