Reason why Brock Lesnar's return was brought forward

2015 has been a very interesting year for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship and the now former champion Brock Lesnar.

Lesnar defended the title in a fantastic triple threat match against Seth Rollins and John Cena at the Royal Rumble in January.

He then participated in the main event at WrestleMania XXXI against Roman Reigns and lopst his title when Rollins cashed in his Money in the Bank briefcase.

Lesnar then went on the warpath and ended up assaulting announcers, cameramen and pretty much anyone around ringside the next night on RAW.

This led to Lesnar being suspended indefinitely by Stephanie McMahon and leaving his return to be questionable.

It has however been rumoured that Lesnar would return for a blockbuster clash with Rollins at Summer Slam in August.

However recently it was announced that he will be back sooner than Summer Slam with him being advertised for episodes of RAW leading up to Battleground.

Everyone has been wondering why the return of the beast incarnate was moved up and the answer may lie in something as simple as TV ratings.

RAW's rating have been down since the night after WrestleMania and Lesnar's final appearance and this past Monday's episode was a landmark show.

This past Monday, Raw had a rating of just 2.54, marking the lowest rating the show has done for the month of May since the late 1990s.

Lesnar returning for Battleground will make the event a lot more interesting and poses the question of what could be the big plan for Summer Slam now?

Coming for the Future?

Whilst we may not know exactly who Lesnar will be targeting on his return, the safe money seems to be on the current champion.

Rollins does still owe Lesnar a title rematch but the question becomes, when will we see the two climb into the ring together?

What could the overall plan for Summer Slam be? Who will finally be able to take the title away from Rollins? Will Lesnar be able to win back his belt? Only time will give us the answers to all these questions.
