After defeating The Undertaker at WrestleMania XXX Brock Lesnar’s next feud and match would definitely have to be a big one in order to reach the heights of his feud with The Deadman.
The best way to do that would be targeting the WWE World Heavyweight champion and taking the gold.
The rumours which have been spreading online suggest that The Beast Incarnate is in fact competing at this year’s SummerSlam event; and his match will be for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship, regardless of who the champion is.
Right now, due to Daniel Bryan’s injury John Cena is the frontrunner to take the vacated title and carry the belts for the foreseeable future, even though fans desperately want Cesaro, Bray Wyatt or Roman Reigns to take home the gold.
So, with Brock Lesnar and Paul Heyman lurking in the shadows, waiting for the champion to have his 15 minutes of fame before Lesnar pounces; who should he face?
WWE.com already has a poll running, asking us fans the same questions with Roman Reigns currently in the lead. Is he the best option? If not, what other options does Lesnar and the WWE have? Let’s take a look.
I’m not supportive of this idea, even though this is a popular option online this is not something I personally want to see at SummerSlam. Of course, the match will be incredible because they will complement each other’s style inside the ring and the feud itself will be good. However, this is a plan right now but it shouldn’t happen this soon, purely because of Paul Heyman. Heyman is guiding Cesaro to stardom, and turning on Cesaro in time for SummerSlam would be too soon, it would be a rushed decision in my opinion.
Nevertheless, this is a favourable option amongst many WWE fans so it has to be taken into consideration, if Cesaro can capture the gold then this will be advantageous for both men, and a match to look forward to as fans.
Roman Reigns is another popular choice but with a possible Seth Rollins match and an inevitable clash with Triple H at SummerSlam; right now it looks unlikely that Reigns and Lesnar could meet, but as we know a lot changes in the WWE. So who knows, this might actually happen and should be considered anyway.
Reigns and Lesnar is similar to Lesnar and Cesaro, minus the Paul Heyman effect so this does have less potential risk. Again, advantageous to both men and a win over Lesnar would make Reigns into the massive star the company wants.
The only thing stopping this is the United States Championship, Brock Lesnar is too big for that championship and if Sheamus somehow manages to capture the WWE World Heavyweight Champion and drop the United States, this could work. It doesn’t sound too interesting on paper I’ll admit but again, think of the match inside the ring. Pure physical brawling which suits both men, topped off with Paul Heyman would make this a great feud.
This probably looks like the match the company will go ahead with, it does make sense in some cases but I doubt it is something the fans want to watch, unless there’s a guarantee that Lesnar destroys Cena which will probably please the fans. Nevertheless Brock Lesnar never received the opportunity to face off against Cena after his loss at Extreme Rules last year. Cena can carry Lesnar if needs be and as Cena is a huge name, the biggest name in the company means this match will be a blockbuster.
If any of those options don’t please the fans, then an alternative is there.
Brock Lesnar makes his appearance at Money in the Bank, cashes in the briefcase and takes home the gold.
It’s simple, Brock Lesnar isn’t one to take no for an answer. He conquered the streak and a conquerer takes anything he wants, and Brock Lesnar wants the gold. He is the only superstar who can walk out with the gold without needing a reason, and making it believable at the same time.
Let’s wait and see what the WWE decides to go with if Bryan remains injured.
