John Cena appeared on SportsCenter in the days leading up to Brock Lesnar’s return to MMA at UFC 200, so it only makes sense that Jonathan Coachman would ask him about the recent news of Lesnar’s failed drug tests when he returned to the show just last night following the WWE Draft.
He said, “Well, there was certainly a lot of hype. I was actually on SportsCenter hyping that fight myself. My thoughts were in Brock Lesnar’s corner, as he was put as the underdog in that fight, and he ended up doing well. Anytime something like that comes out, it certainly affects your perception of the event. There’s no way people aren’t going to perceive Brock Lesnar differently, and when something like this happens, you set yourself a long, hard road ahead of you, and Brock’s got a long, hard road ahead of him.”

The fact that Lesnar failed two different tests, one out of competition and one in competition, doesn’t seem to have affected his status with WWE. He was drafted to Raw with the eighth pick and he’s still scheduled to wrestle Randy Orton at SummerSlam next month.
