It’s hard to put into words. If you’ve seen one or more of his matches, you know exactly what I’m talking about. Brock Lesnar brings an aura into his matches that no WWE superstar, past or present, can really match. He put on quite a match against Daniel Bryan.
It was a far more competitive match than I thought it would turn out to be. But Lesnar sold every strike and had us at the very edge of our sets on more than one moment. Even after the final bell sounded and Lesnar stood tall, we were convinced that his match against Daniel Bryan was quite a close shave.
But now Daniel Bryan and Survivor Series are in the past for the Beast Incarnate. What lies in his immediate future?
I hereby present a variety of match-ups for The Universal Championship.
#3 Future match against Braun Strowman
Braun Strowman and Stephanie McMahon struck a deal on RAW, not long ago. Strowman promised to behave and in return, accepted a title opportunity against Brock Lesnar. The two giants will meet again in a Crown Jewel rematch, presumably at the Royal Rumble pay-per-view.
From what the rumours indicate, Lesnar will not be working at the TLC pay-per-view. As a result, we will get to see a match of this magnitude only in 2019, at the earliest. I do not think that WWE will put the title on Braun Strowman even at the Royal Rumble pay-per-view.
I expect Lesnar to carry the title all the way to WrestleMania 35 and thereafter, drop it to whoever his next challenger is. I shall address some likely candidates on the following slide to continue this speculative article…
#2 Presumably losing the Universal Championship at WrestleMania 35
And then, it is safe to assume that Lesnar will be wrestling at WrestleMania. If the Universal Championship does not get represented at the event, it will be a crying shame. I assume that Lesnar’s opponent at the show will be someone like Drew McIntyre.
WWE has slowly been building the man into a top-tier star, giving him the push of a lifetime. Another potential opponent that Lesnar can square off with is Lashley because fans have wanted that match for quite some time now. I expect Brock Lesnar to lose the Championship at the event and in doing so, establish the next WWE Superstar.
It will not make sense to have Lesnar drop the title before that, because Lesnar’s reign is special and demands a worthy stage to crown his successor. What better stage than WrestleMania 35?
#1 Return to the UFC
UFC Heavyweight Champion Daniel Cormier is a huge WWE fan. So much so that he’s even going to be trying out for a commentary spot in the company. This is presumably in line with the changes FOX wants when SmackDown Live goes over to their network. But he had quite the sports entertainment encounter not very long ago.
Cormier and Lesnar had a little confrontation in the octagon. It is clear that there is a lot of money to be made when the two men battle it out. I expect Lesnar to capitalize on this and go to the UFC for another run, in due course of time.
WWE will be okay with this because crossover appearances bring new eyeballs. I don’t know if this will happen before or after WrestleMania, since Cormier has promised to retire on his 40th birthday, early next year.
One thing is for sure, whatever Lesnar does will always be big news!
