After the media circus that followed The Rock vs. John Cena match from this year’s WrestleMania, the WWE will have a big challenge in trying to schedule a match in the shadow of New York City to compete with the main event in Miami.

Although next year’s WrestleMania being a little less than a year away, it is being reported that the WWE is already planning to have Brock Lesnar possibly defend the WWE Championship in a main-event match against The Rock at MetLife Stadium.

With Lesnar just coming off his return and Rock being nothing more than a part-time attraction for the WWE, I think it would be a very poor decision by the company to have their title defended in a match between two superstars not competing full time.

If you look back, WrestleMania 28, the match between Cena and Rock wasn’t for a championship so the WWE could get the same fantastic result with their plan for WrestleMania 29 with WWE Championship not being involved in the match.

Instead of having established names like The Rock and Lesnar competing for the WWE Championship, the WWE should have more up-and-comers challenging for the biggest title in the company among the likes of Cody Rhodes, Dolph Ziggler or, soon to return from injury, Wade Barrett.

While there is absolutely no doubt that Lesnar and Rock meeting for the first time since SummerSlam 2002 could be a classic, the WWE doesn’t need to add the WWE Championship to a match that has enough to make it special.

Drop down to the comment section and tell me what you think about the plan for Brock Lesnar and The Rock to battle for the WWE Championship at next year’s WrestleMania in East Rutherford, N.J.?
