The closing moments of this past Sunday’s Extreme Rules pay-per-view gave us a very familiar sight. The headlining main event was a steel cage match between “The Game” Triple H and Brock Lesnar. After 30+ minutes of hard-hitting brutality, the world witnessed Lesnar walking out of the cage as the undisputed victor of this war. Not only did Lesnar avenge his WrestleMania loss, he ascended himself back to his rightful place at the top. With this victory under his belt, it is without question that Lesnar must now be highly considered for the richest prize in the land, the WWE Championship.
The last time that Lesnar wore WWE gold was on February 15th 2004 when he lost the WWE Championship to the late great Eddie Guerrero. Shortly after, Lesnar would depart from the WWE to pursue a career in the UFC, and a successful one at that. With Lesnar holding a program victory over a future Hall of Famer and with his mainstream fame, it would only make sense if Lesnar reclaims his throne at the top of the mountain as the WWE Champion.
August 25th 2002 at Summer Slam, Lesnar defeated The Rock to capture his first WWE Championship. History could and should repeat itself at this year’s Summer Slam by booking Lesnar into a program with the current WWE Champion John Cena. Lesnar vs. Cena at Summer Slam, live from LA would be that summer-time marquee main event that the WWE would highly benefit from to close the summer. But more importantly, to solidify Summer Slam as one of the most sought after shows to order throughout the year.
If fantasy booking were to come into play with this, ideally we can see Lesnar defeat Cena at Summer Slam 2013. Lesnar would go on to hold the belt until WrestleMania 30 and drop it to none other than CM Punk in the championship main event. As of right now, nothing is solidified and certain. The only thing we can do is speculate on what we can see fitting in the future. But if history has taught us anything, it is anything can happen in the WWE. Sories just don’t end, they always come full circle.
