It’s the rematch of the century: Brock Lesnar vs. The Undertaker. The word on the street is that the Undertaker is going to get his win back at Summerslam. This is a terrible decision.
Let’s make things clear. Lesnar should never have beaten the streak. The WWE threw away millions of dollars by allowing Lesnar to beat the Undertaker. This streak should have gone on for years, certainly until his final match. Beating the Undertaker just so the WWE could create buzz around the debut of its network, and give Lesnar a push that he didn’t need, was a terrible decision.
Now, the Undertaker is back and looking to challenge Lesnar at Summerslam. What this really is is the WWE getting desperate for a big-time main event. The Undertaker should not beat Lesnar because it’s entirely unbelievable that Lesnar would lose. If anything, Lesnar should humiliate the Undertaker again, perhaps this time pinning him in a squash match.
This could set up a months-long angle where Lesnar and Heyman are telling the Undertaker to retire. Everyone would be sad over the Undertaker and thing he was done, only for him to return at the Royal Rumble and eliminate Lesnar.
Then in a strange turn of events, it is the Undertaker who puts his career on the line against Lesnar at WrestleMania at Cowboys Stadium. And yes, here, the Taker gets his win back, and then announces his retirement, in one classic moment for the phenom.
Let’s make the Undertaker’s win mean something. Lesnar needs to be pushed as the monster heel of the company, destroying everyone before returning the favor and putting the Undertaker over.
The WWE was on a roll with Lesnar last year; let’s hope they don’t mess it up and start jobbing him for no reason just to create buzz.
