There’s no doubt that Brock Lesnar was written off television for the sake of his appearance limit. Two weeks ago the beast incarnate dropped his title indirectly to the self proclaimed future of the WWE, Seth Rollins. Obviously it’s simple enough to assume he’ll get his rematch against Rollins, but figuring that out might be tricky. There are quite a few factors for this Lesnar story line that come into play before he receives his title match.
Possibilities for Lesnar’s Return
Brock was suspended indefinitely, meaning we won’t see him until the Authority says so. I think there’s a good chance Paul Heyman brings him back sometime during June or July by using his legal jargon to threaten the Authority. Now before the beast wrestles Rollins, he still needs to worry about Roman Reigns, another man that has unfinished business with Brock. This is where things become difficult, because they can’t just pretend like Brock vs Roman never happened and it’s just water under the bridge. Also it would make no sense to have Roman speak about his match at Mania if they weren’t planning on a future feud. Of course plans consistently change, but I think they’ll remain consistent with this one. The WWE must also be careful before they begin overbooking Lesnar’s upcoming feud. I believe they can go with three possible scenarios:
- Brock is scheduled to face Rollins at Summerslam. Reigns wins Money in the Bank and teases his cash in for that match.
- Brock finishes his business with Reigns at Money in the Bank or Battleground. Faces Rollins at Summerslam.
- Both Brock and Reigns challenge Rollins in a triple threat match at Summerslam.
Whichever scenario they go with, I truly believe Brock should not enter the fall season as the WWE World Heavyweight Champion. There’s multiple ways in which the former champ can look strong by losing that rivalry, but for the sake of creating more matchups for the title they should keep it off him. He can close out a solid feud with both Roman and Seth, which will go down as one of the best we’ve seen in awhile.
Post-Summerslam for Lesnar
If they go with the decision of not giving him the title at Summerslam, the WWE has more options to play with. After the biggest party of the summer, they can easily setup a feud with Orton and Lesnar. This has been the feud many fans having been dying to see. Selling the viper vs the beast would be rather easy if done right. The back story wouldn’t have to be complicated because simple is what works for wrestlers. A feud of this caliber would be great for a PPV such as Survivor Series, thus capping off Brock’s year and appearance limit. Heading into 2016 there’s still opponents such as Daniel Bryan, Dean Ambrose, and Bray Wyatt that Lesnar can potential worth with.
The beast incarnate has given us fans a lot to be excited about, especially since he’s 100% committed to the WWE. I highly believe most of this year will be about extending his feud with Seth Rollins and most likely Roman Reigns. After he’s done causing havoc in the title picture, I think it’s time we see him partake in other dream matches. As I mentioned earlier, plans can easily change by next month, but I think this would be a wise route for the WWE to take.
