The Beast Incarnate, Brock Lesnar is scheduled to take on The Game, Triple H inside a fifteen foot high steel cage at Extreme Rules. Dolph Ziggler is the World Heavyweight Champion who unfortunately won’t be defending the title in a Triple Threat Ladder Match at the event, thanks to a concussion. What do these men have in common with each other? At surface value, nothing. But in the long run, it could mean big things for the man formerly known as the Next Big Thing.
Brock Lesnar is a three-time WWE Champion. His accolades outside of the WWE are unmatched; UFC Champion, amateur wrestling champion in junior college AND division 1. He lived up to his former nickname of the Next Big Thing.
But that’s all in the past. Brock is no longer a full-time employee for WWE. He’s a part-timer, like everyone’s favorite Superstar, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson. Reception towards him winning, say, the World Heavyweight Title might not be the best. But when Brock isn’t on WWE TV, he’s not off making movies like Dwayne. He’s either kicking back and relaxing or training. If WWE did book Brock to win a title, I’m sure Brock wouldn’t mind the schedule. Plus, since he has Paul Heyman, he doesn’t need to be there every week. He has a mouth piece to take over for him when he can’t be there. That’s why Dwayne’s title reign didn’t work. He couldn’t be there every week and he didn’t have anybody to fill in for him and help build up his match with Cena.
If Brock were to become champion again, the IWC would eat it up. Unlike his part-time counterpart, The Rock, he’s not an actor. Like he said himself, he’s an ass-kicker. He’s an ass-kicker for hire. If WWE were to put a title on him, he would draw major money. And that would please both Brock and the WWE. I’m not saying WWE NEEDS to put a title on Lesnar. But if they were smart, they would put a title on him for a short time, like Rocky, and see how it goes. If goes well, keep the title on him longer. If it doesn’t work, have him lose the title either back to Ziggler or to someone else deserving of it.
We know that Brock draws money. Whether they want to admit it or not, the IWC is looking forward to the Steel Cage match between him and The Game. After the way they built it up, with the Steel Cage segment on Raw this past Monday and Brock destroying Triple H’s office last week, it has the potential to be the show-stealing match on the card. Especially since Dolph isn’t competing.
Brock Lesnar is The Beast Incarnate. He’s a force to be reckoned with and putting a title on him now will not only draw money, but solidify Brock’s place as one of the greatest and most dominate champions in WWE history.
