He is incredibly marketable and has a built in fan base so an organization like the UFC is going to pay for that. That's why they went so hard after Kurt Angle.
Well, from what I know, Lesnar was set to make the 7-digit figures offered to the likes of Rock, Austin, and HHH. If I remembered right, Lesnar's fickle attitude as to what he wanted to do (i.e. NFL in '04, MMA currently) led him to exit WWE.
I thought Lesnar was/is a good fit for TNA, as it was for Kurt Angle, who did more or less for the sake of the health of his career.
As for the fight, it had more to do with his opposition than it did about him making an awesome impression. He has potential to fare well in MMA, but would like to see how he does after a couple more bouts.
