Only one thing is saving the Brock Lesnar vs John Cena rivalry

It seems like a long time ago since Paul Heyman revealed his Plan C to Triple H in the form of the beast incarnate, Brock Lesnar.

In that time we have some very passionate speeches, the most dominant performance in WWE history, many doubts and even a case of kidnapping.

When Brock Lesnar defeated John Cena at SummerSlam to win the WWE World Heavyweight Championship, it was called the most dominant title match ever.

Its hard to argue with that idea after Lesnar delivered no less than 16 German Suplexes to Cena throughout the match.

Cena mounted little to no offense in the match meaning that Lesnar lived up to his word and his reputation from all the pre match hype.

So when Cena evoked his rematch clause for the upcoming Night of Champions Pay-Per-View, I still think there were very few who were surprised.

Personally, I think there were very few who were surprised and there will probably be very few who will be surprised if Cena wins.

But despite the high calibre of talent and the big names involved in arguably the biggest feud of the year, I for one, think it is only being saved by one thing.

That thing is neither John Cena or Brock Lesnar, it is not Cena's passion or Lesnar ruthlessness, but in fact it is Paul Heyman's promos.

The new Daniel Bryan

Earlier this year, then WWE World Heavyweight Champion Daniel Bryan was seriously injured, which led to two months without a title defence and many episodes of RAW without a Champion.

Despite all of the words from the Authority claiming that the WWE Universe needs a fighting champion, what have we ended up with?

Well we now have a champion who made his first appearance on RAW since winning the title this past Monday - 29 days after winning the title!

Lesnar may be a fighting champion, but we are going weeks between his appearances and honestly, it is keeping the title feud as dry and stale as when Bryan was champion.

But there is one saviour.

The man with the mouth

This past Monday on RAW was one of the best in the Cena v Lesnar feud so far, arguably because both were actually there but also because of the performance of Paul Heyman.

In fact Heyman has made so many promos during the last two months which is arguably the reason why interest in the feud is there to begin with.

That promo from two weeks ago is an example of how Heyman's wards are helping to keep this feud alive, but like everything, too much of it will make it lose its charm.

For the sake of the WWE Universe and the WWE World Heavyweight Championship, I think one of two things needs to happen.

Either, John Cena wins the title and is able to have a weekly feud with a new challenger, or Lesnar retains the title but makes more appearances on the weekly shows.

Of course the WWE has to pay more for Lesnar to actually show up and appear on their TV Shows but the WWE needs a champion who will be ever present, and despite popular opinion, if that is Cena, then so be it.
