One thing is very clear: Brock Lesnar and CM Punk are both Paul Heyman guys.
As soon as Punk aligned himself with Heyman a few weeks back, everyone immediately began to speculate whether a new group or faction would be created. This has yet to happen, but we’re only a couple weeks into the angle.
If that’s in fact a direction where WWE wants to go, a good first step would be to pair up Lesnar and Punk. I mean, their paths have to cross at some point–they have to acknowledge their mutual business partner, right?
So where and when would they want to do this?
The logical answer would be Survivor Series. It’s a PPV where WWE likes to use teams, even beyond the traditional Survivor Series matches. The main event last year, while not the best match ever, was still a big attention getter. The Rock and John Cena tagging together got people interested.
A Lesnar/Punk/Heyman alliance would get people very interested. Undoubtedly, this would firmly establish Punk as the top heel in the company, which we can only hope is the long-term goal of the creative team and everyone involved.
Of course there’s always the issue of how many contract dates Lesnar has left. It’s the biggest obstacle in the way of this thing be a huge success long-term. Short-term, it’s a team that will draw interest and money.
So who would face Lesnar and Punk? Obviously Cena has to be involved and then I would say the Undertaker or Rock would be the most logical choices to join him.
Undertaker has been rumored to be part of Survivor Series this year and I can’t really think of any better match to put him in, especially if they want to build to fight at Wrestlemania between him and Lesnar.
Wrestling needs an big storyline. I feel like overall the company is just kind of going through the motions right now, with the exception of the Punk/Cena feud.
There is a ton of potential here with Heyman and his guys to really create a long-lasting story that could extend to Wrestlemania or beyond. Hopefully the suits at WWE see it the same way.
