Brock Lesnar’s controversial loss to The Undertaker at SummerSlam marked the end of his latest stint with the WWE.

His part-time deal with the company means he will be back, and there’s a chance he could face The Undertaker one more time at WrestleMania 32.

Lesnar adds a lot of value to the WWE. He’s a star attraction that sells tickets and other than The Undertaker, there are WWE superstars who could put on great matches with The Beast Incarnate.

The WWE superstars would love to have an opportunity to feud with Lesnar, as the matches would be fantastic and the chance to work with a legitimate winner like him and a genius in Paul Heyman would be too good to turn down.

There are plenty of match-ups out there for Lesnar, and for the fans. Here are the five opponents Lesnar should eventually face:


At one stage it looked as if Lesnar and Cesaro would be on a collision course sooner or later.

This dates back to the night after WrestleMania XXX, when Cesaro aligned himself with Paul Heyman. Many believes big things were in store for the Swiss Superman and after a strong few months as a top star, Heyman would turn on him and a clash with Lesnar would take place.

Obviously, nothing of that sort happened. Instead Cesaro floated around the mid-card picture but now he’s finding his feet again with his popularity soaring.

A feud with Lesnar would be massive for Cesaro. It would certainly push Cesaro to the super-stardom level and it would be great for his popularity as a face.

The matches would be great, Cesaro is a fantastic worker and mixing his style with Lesnar’s brutal style would be highly entertaining.


In this instance, it would be great for Lesnar and Heyman to continue portraying the good guys. Even if they don’t on paper, the fans will give them a face-like reaction.

Kevin Owens is an amazing heel, easily one of the best in the WWE today. He does things which irritate the fans, he’s sneaky and does whatever he needs to do to get whatever he wants.

That’s the sign of a good heel.

You can already imagine the quality of the promos, going back and forth from the sarcastic, straight talking Owens to the genius of Heyman. That battle alone would be worth tuning in for.

Then we have the matches. Owens can move and has a good work-rate. We all know what Lesnar is capable of and that match-up could headline almost any pay-per-view.

This would definitely help develop Owens into a mega star, and firmly establish him as the best heel in the business.


Questions are still raised as to why a feud between Lesnar and Orton hasn’t happened yet.

Even though both men are now older than when they probably should have faced off; a potential feud would still be brilliant to see.

This is a rare feud for both men, as it wouldn’t matter who the face and heel is. They both have traits to be a face that’s over with the WWE Universe and they can both be a heel who the WWE despises.

Orton has reportedly asked for a lighter schedule, making him an almost part-time superstar. This could be a good thing. If Lesnar and Orton are both part-timers then a feud would be even more special.

At this stage, Orton probably needs Lesnar a lot more than Lesnar needs Orton. Lesnar is on top of the world right now, even after a loss to The Undertaker.

Orton on the other hand, he’s been feuding with Sheamus. Let’s leave it at that.


This feud definitely wouldn’t make sense if it kicked off tomorrow.

The WWE have made a huge mistake in not continuing his momentum properly since WrestleMania and now he’s in an underwhelming feud with Dolph Ziggler.

At one stage fans were mooting a potential match between Rusev and The Rock, that’s a huge deal.

The good thing is, Rusev is doing a great job of making his current feud relevant. He has the right amount of comedy on his social media accounts mixed with his no-nonsense style in the ring.

Rusev needs to be the monster again. The one that never looked like losing and looked like a future WWE World Heavyweight Champion.

He could get to that stage again.

If he does ever reach those heights again then a clash with Lesnar has to take place. It would be great for Lesnar to bring down a massive threat in Rusev whilst Rusev could also shock the world if he held a victory over Lesnar.


Here is one is something fans would love to see, whether the WWE actually let it happen is a different story.

It would be another ultimate face vs. heel, David vs. Goliath clash. The fans adore Bryan whilst Heyman can make the WWE Universe hate Lesnar.

This is a story the fans would definitely be invested in as it seems like an almost impossible task for Bryan.

There’s no denying the quality of the matches. Bryan is one of the finest wrestlers on the planet.

However, it’s definitely a risk. Any match for Bryan will be a risk so a clash with Lesnar probably won’t happen if the WWE have things their way.

If Bryan can prove his fitness and prove that his injury worries are behind him, the WWE probably won’t want to miss out on this money-making feud.
