Fans across the WWE universe need to be aware that the John Cena vs. The Rock main event at WrestleMania 28 will not end with a clean finish.

At least, not if Brock Lesnar has anything to say about it.

Rumors have been swirling about the former WWE and UFC champion returning to the WWE, but the latest news from Wrestling Observer is that Lesnar has reached a one-year deal. With no holdups from the UFC, that means WWE could Bring the Pain starting tonight in Miami.

While the first thing fans think about is a feud between Lesnar and Undertaker, there is no reason to bring the former UFC heavyweight champ back now if he will only be put on the shelf until next year.

The WWE has proven with The Rock vs. Cena match that they love a year’s worth of build, but having a huge star like Lesnar work more shows in between is the smart plan. Brock can still fight Undertaker at WrestleMania 29, but in the meantime, he could feud with The Rock.

There was already speculation that The Rock would be working another program leading into WWE’s second-biggest PPV of the year, SummerSlam. Imagine how big of a year it would be for Lesnar to fight The Rock at SummerSlam and Undertaker at WrestleMania.

That’s where this year’s main event comes in. After one of the better matches seen in the last 15 years, I can see The Rock and John Cena knocked out in the ring with both getting near falls.

As both men struggle to get to their feet, the lights drop and Brock Lesnar’s music hits.

As the fans think Cena will be the one to get F-5’d, Lesnar turns to a drowsy Rock and destroys him with a devastating finisher. After the John Cena win, the book is open for WWE to do almost anything storyline-wise.

Lesnar adds the "X" factor on the roster that will bring in the PPV buys.
