The speculation over which direction Brock Lesnar was going to head in following his streak-ending victory over The Undertaker at WrestleMania was always going to be impressive.
However the thought of him challenging Daniel Bryan for the WWE World Heavyweight title is one which could hardly have been taken too seriously. That was until the Wrestling Observer began to circulate a rumour, which has in turn been picked up by Wrestling Inc, that detailed how Lesnar may be set to face Bryan at SummerSlam.
The former UFC Heavyweight Champion is taking some time off, having reintroduced himself to professional wrestling in the most awe-inspiring way possible by beating The Undertaker. With Bryan backed by his significant ‘YES’ movement, and Lesnar the apparent man of the moment, a fight between the two does seem like it could be one of the biggest there to be made.
Of course there’s always the chance that John Cena could be in contention for a shot following his victory over Bray Wyatt on April 6, and some have even speculated that CM Punk’s mysterious exit from the company could be reversed in spectacular fashion.
Do you think Lesnar deserves a crack at Bryan at SummerSlam or any of the big shows following? Let us know in the comment box below.
