With Paul Heyman speaking of his "Plan C" this Monday night on Raw, it seems like the return of Brock Lesnar is inevitable. There were rumors flying around that he is coming back to win the WWE title. The best part about having Lesnar as a part-timer is that you can use him for surprises and new feuds; this would be neither of those things. The WWE should pull a last minute audible.
With the Authority going up against Cena and Roman Reigns, it is hard to see where Lesnar fits into this. Paul Heyman has never worked with Triple H, despite both being heel power sources. Why start out of nowhere? It seems like they are going to force this, which will hurt its build immensely.
There is no way you can ruin the momentum that Lesnar has from ending the Undertaker's streak at Wrestlemania by letting him lose to Cena again -- that would make the ending of The Streak a waste. The most important thing in your company cannot be wasted. At the same time, having a WWE champ be at less than half his events, especially since now there is only one title, is unacceptable.
In my mind, both these wrestlers have better feuds that could be less predictable. Cena could lose the title this week to, say, Randy Orton (I know, ugh, but hear me out) and he could face Roman Reigns for the title at Summerslam. Then that leaves you with free reign with both guys. Does Lesnar take on former Heyman guy Cesaro? Could Cena face Seth Rollins or even in a No. 1 contender's match for Night of Champions?
I understand Bray Wyatt will likely be facing Chris Jericho at SS, but they need to find a way to get him in the ring with Lesnar. I would also love to see him against Reigns, Ambrose, Rollins, Cesaro, among many others. Even a loss against Lesnar could send one of these guys through the stratosphere.
This is the main reason. The poster has been released for Summerslam, showing the main event. It would be awesome if they used that as a tease now that it came out and changed plans to give everyone a swerve. That is what wrestling is about. Nobody likes to predict what is happening, especially for Summerslam. Keep us guessing, WWE.
