John Cena v Brock Lesnar, was that it?

We are just a few moments removed from Summer Slam 2014 and the answer to how John Cena would fare against Brock Lesnar.

The answer was very poorly, Cena suffered an F5 within 30 seconds of the match beginning and other than that early flourish, he never showed much else.

He had a few little rallies when he had Lesnar reeling but it was never enough for him to regain his WWE World Heavyweight Championship.

In the end it was a very dominant performance from Lesnar and will henceforth be known as the Suplex-bowl after Lesnar delivered no less than 16 German suplexes to the former champ.

But with some people still in shock and awe of the desolation of the 15-time World Heavyweight Champion, I have one question to ask.

I can't be the only here asking, is that it?

Many thought Lesnar would win prior to the match and those people were more than justified tonight, but did it live up to the hype?

In a word, no.

Whilst it was brutal, and it was 'compelling' watching John Cena being thrown around like a rag doll, I found myself like I hope others did, hoping for something more.

Who knows what that something would be, maybe Hulk Hogan to emerge, Sting to drop from the sky or even just John Cena to just stand up.

That being said I understand what the WWE were trying to build here.

Whatever their plan for the end of Lesnar's reign as champion, they clearly had to build him up to be invincible and turning a 15-time champion into a puppet is a great way to do so.

I hope the overall story has a thrilling conclusion because tonight's was not much of a surprise.

Perhaps I'm wrong, perhaps I missed the entertainment value in one man standing over the other telling a referee to check on him, who knows.

What I do know however, is that coming out of Summer Slam, that will not be the last we see of John Cena, and that Brock Lesnar is surely going to be a dominant champion but what do the WWE have in store for him?

The next bit

Well the most obvious course is for John Cena to return and evoke his rematch at Night of Champions next month.

Who knows, maybe Cena will win and tie Nature Boy Ric Flair as a 16-time world champion and maybe we'll get a better championship match than tonights.

But if they intend to move Cena away from the situation, who could step in?

Well there are several schools of thought on that and I take a look at what could be nextin the above article.

But I leave just one question, Is Brock Lesnar now too good for anyone else on the roster to defeat him?
