Brock Lesnar faces off against John Cena at Summerslam 2014, and Lesnar should come out victorious. Sure, he is a part-time superstar and Cena works hard day in and day out, but the WWE needs Lesnar to win for these five reasons.
Lesnar was a UFC star before he retired from the industry to explore other ventures. One of those has been a return to the WWE ring. This versatility he is trying to possess has left him as a part timer in the ring, and his title win and reign following would possibly acquire new fans to WWE. UFC fans have grown tired of the stale product, a lot like WWE fans, so a prolonged Lesnar stay in WWE would benefit fans of both promotions.
John Cena sells t-shirts, I get that, but it is time for the company to give someone else a push. That person may not be Lesnar; it may be Seth Rollins, Roman Reigns or Bray Wyatt, but it needs to be someone new. Cena has been known to help push young stars in the past, but that doesn't seem to be happening. Have Lesnar win, have one of the youngsters take down the streak-breaker and let a new generation of stars reign supreme.
Lesnar's power is incredible and needs to be here for the long haul. This F5 on Cena from 2012 could happen weekly, and I'd be A-OK with it. Lesnar is one of the few guys in the industry's history who could make a dude like Cena look like a rag doll.
He was quite entertaining in his days on MTV, but The Miz just does not do it for me in WWE. The fact the he is the Intercontinental Champion right means one thing: WWE needs more stars. Even if they are stars of old like Lesnar, it will be better than The Miz. I think that may be why we've seen a Kane push the past few months, but it is no secret that Kane's best performing days are behind him. Lesnar is the guy.
Heyman is one of the best mouths WWE has ever had. Brock may not be the best on the mic, but his unworldly size combined with Heyman's mix of snarky humor and maniacal screaming makes for one heck of a watch. Wrestling fans should want more Paul Heyman, and that only comes with a Lesnar win at SummerSlam. Cena is decent on the mic, but he cannot touch this duo in their respective specialties.
