Predicting Brock Lesnar's WWE run to WrestleMania 33

Published 8 Comments

Football News

WWE SummerSlam took place last night and the fans are all talking about one thing - apart from how bad the show was overall - and that is the main event between Brock Lesnar and Randy Orton. 

Lesnar split Orton's forehead open with some vicious elbow strikes that left The Viper laying in a pool of his own blood and Lesnar victorious via TKO. 

So, after that absolute horror show of a main event, where does Brock Lesnar go from here? We have stared into the crystal ball to track Lesnar's future up to WrestleMania 33 next year.

The Immediate Future

We all know what is coming on the Monday Night Raw following SummerSlam. With Lesnar being on a part-time contract, the WWE are going to need to save him for future dates and appearances, so will almost certainly be suspending The Beast Incarnate for the next month or so.

They did something similar back in 2015, when Lesnar attacked a cameraman and the announce team on RAW following him losing his WWE Championship at WrestleMania to Seth Rollins. Stephanie McMahon indefinitely suspended Lesnar, who returned three months later.

It would be a shock if this were to not happen again. It is a tried and tested tactic and when you see just how much Lesnar attacked Orton after the match was waived off - as well as F5'ing Shane McMahon - it seems like this is what they were planning. 

Next Match

So, when will Brock Lesnar's next match be? This year more than any other, that is an interesting question. Following the brand split, Lesnar and Orton are on opposite brands. And with individual brand Pay-Per-Views coming in, there aren't many opportunities for them to face off against one another. 

There is only one mixed brand PPV left on the schedule for 2016, Survivor Series. 

At that event, on November 20, Lesnar will almost certainly be taking on Orton in a grudge match as The Viper tries to avenge the vicious attack he suffered this past weekend. Let's hope it ends differently to how the first one did.

Royal Rumble

Lesnar always returns for the Royal Rumble, so we assume he will do the same in 2017. The only real question would be if he were to appear in the 30-man, over the top, battle royal, or in one-on-one action against another opponent.

There are two potentials here. Either, Randy Orton managed to avenge his victory and this feud is headed for a third and final match or Lesnar won out against his fellow OVW alumnus yet again and the beef was squashed. 

Providing the feud hasn't gotten incredibly stale, a blow-off match at the Rumble would be must-see television.

WrestleMania 33

Lesnar has won at the Royal Rumble, either beating Orton or winning the Rumble itself and is set for yet another big match at WrestleMania. 

After all of these feuds with very little reward, Lesnar wants to get his hands on some gold, and there is one man in his way: the WWE Universal Champion, Finn Balor. 

Balor beat Seth Rollins at SummerSlam to claim the title and all these months later the former NXT Champion is still carrying that big red belt around his waist. Unfortunately for the Irishman, who in this time has become one of the faces of the WWE, he is coming face-to-face with a Beast.

A clash of good vs evil, new era vs old era, Demon King vs Beast Incarnate. One the grandest stage of them all, in front of over 65,000 people in Orlando - the place where it all started for Balor in WWE.

What could be sweeter...
