Because three men can say they should be WWE WHC. History should have told us… WWE does something unexpected that gets us excited and talking about a new day… then drops the ball and does some dumb shit that completely does away with the earlier good feelings. See, entering Night of Champions, Brock Lesnar was unbeatable. Leaving Night of Champions? He almost lost twice but the two men hated on each other. This. Is. TURRIBLE. booking.
See, Brock Lesnar is supposed to be built up as this unstoppable beast. Then, say, Roman Reigns beats him. Now HE is the man. What happens to THAT payoff, when Lesnar essentially should have lost the title twice now? We can’t unsee Lesnar ending The Streak and how he beat the brakes off of Cena. But imagine if RIGHT after the bell rang at WrassleMania, the match was restarted and Lesnar tapped to the Hell’s Gate? Remember the clusterfuck ending that was Hollywood Hogan vs Sting? When Hogan won but didn’t then Sting did but not really? THEY DID THAT SHIT TWICE! First, Cena put Lesnar in like 3552565325 finishers, and after the fourth AA, I really can’t see Lesnar kicking out. Then Seth Rollins hits the ring then Cena with that gold briefcase. He would then hit HIS finish on Lesnar. Then Cena chased him off. So… for MANY of us fans… it was like a good movie turned SHIT because of a terrible ending.
To predict where WWE goes from here, maybe they just wanted an excuse to have Cena and Lesnar headline Hell in a Cell. Maybe they wanted to put Rollins in a feud with Cena. I like neither, but Rollins doing jobs for Cena less. See… when you really think about it, Lesnar LOST to John Cena last night. He wasn’t pinned and he didn’t tap, but he LOST. IF we’re counting back to their match at Extreme Rules, Cena now owns two wins to Lesnar’s one. And that’s retarded. Maybe they fight again and Lesnar pulls out a win in a back and forth contest. Because that’s what WWE does. Trade wins. Rollins would be on the 2 side of a 1-2 record if he feuded with Cena. So NAWL.
I’m even more pissed when I think about Heyman helping abort Cesaro’s momentum by spending every second he had on a microphone standing next to him… talking about Brock Lesnar ending The Streak. So you couldn’t just let someone get over and turn babyface… you had to keep him heel, and then have his manager mostly neglect him, before you just forgot the whole angle? I almost typed “Lesnar ended The Streak and beat up Cena then got rewarded by nearly taking two losses in one night” before I remembered: WWE brought Lesnar back… to be an asskicker. Bring legitimacy back to WWE. Then he lost the match.
It’s like WWE has completely forgotten what a badass looks like, much less how to book one.
