Brock Lesnar has returned.
Yes, "The Next Big Thing" returned to the WWE last Monday, "F5ing" the hell out of John Cena. While I'm not too fond of it, he's here to stay, at least for a year now. But now what? He's surely going to be involved in the major WWE storylines, and news is that he'll be on the next WWE PPV as well, Extreme Rules.
Allstate Arena in the Chicago area has updated the preview for WWE's Extreme Rules PPV on April 29 to include official advertising for Brock Lesnar's first PPV appearance in eight years. The advertising does not say whether he will be wrestling (it could be announced as early as Monday's Raw episode).
The advertising reads: "Brock Lesnar has returned to WWE for the first time in eight years and he will be live in Chicago! See the former two-time WWE champion, Brock Lesnar...for the first time in eight years for the Extreme Rules Pay-Per-View." The ad then described the general "no limits, no boundaries" PPV theme.
We'll have to wait till Monday night to see whether Lesnar will actually be wrestling John Cena at Extreme Rules.
I personally feel that Lesnar will get involved in a John Cena match and further their feud which will culminate in a match at SummerSlam. The WWE will not—and should not—waste a match of that magnitude for a small-scale PPV like Extreme Rules.
I think Lesnar and Cena should go on their own paths, crossing each other occasionally on their way to SummerSlam. This should finally culminate into a match at SummerSlam.
