The return of Brock Lesnar marked a monumental moment in WWE history.
When John Laurinaitis marched to the ring and announced that Lesnar was going to "legitimize the WWE", many purists of professional wrestling probably gasped for air.
Was Johnny admitting that wrestling is staged? Did he break kayfabe? If those purists truly believe that—they've got another thing coming.
WWE has always tried to be cutting edge. Sometimes they strike gold; other times they fail miserably.
What Johnny was trying to tell everyone is that Brock Lesnar is your next big WWE Champion. The writing wass on the wall and the foreshadowing had already taken place when he told CM Punk that there are some "natural disasters" in Punk's future.
If I remember correctly, Brock Lesnar is the master of the F-5, which is a major tornado.
Brock's return came exactly 10 years after his shocking debut on Monday Night RAW. Brock stormed the ring and destroyed Al Snow, Maven and Spike Dudley during a match on RAW. The crowd was buzzing as Paul Heyman shouted instructions from ringside.
At that time, not many people realized just how talented Brock Lesnar is.
We saw that he was huge and powerful. Most knew that he was a 2000 NCAA Heavyweight Wrestling Champion. What people didn't realize is that the man has the "it" factor.
He took the WWE to new heights and helped get UFC recognized in major sports publications all over the world.
During that first night on RAW, the fans didn't realize the charisma and ability of this phenom. Ten years after his initial debut, newer, younger members of the WWE universe are now experiencing Brock Lesnar in a WWE ring for the first time.
Brock Lesnar will walk into WWE "Extreme Rules" and take on WWE's biggest star: John Cena. The history between the two is documented and is at a boiling point.
There is no doubt that Brock Lesnar will defeat John Cena. Although Lesnar will make Cena look strong during the contest, ultimately Lesnar will win in an impressing fashion. The extent of the involvement of John Laurinaitis remains to be seen.
However, do not be surprised if he is heavily involved in the outcome.
After possible rematches with Cena and whatever else WWE comes up with for Brock Lesnar to do, the next giant step for him is none other than CM Punk and the WWE Championship. This is where the storyline between CM Punk and John Laurinaitis will reignite into an absolute inferno.
If it was up to me, the match would take place at SummerSlam in August. Once again, this would help make Lesnar's return come full circle.
On August 25, 2002, SummerSlam took place at the Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum. The main event was The Rock defending the WWE Undisputed Championship against Brock Lesnar.
In what was one of the most exciting matches of the previous decade, Brock Lesnar defeated The Rock to win his first WWE Undisputed Championship.
If Brock Lesnar takes on and defeats CM Punk at this year's SummerSlam, it would be ten years after he won his first WWE Championship. Regardless of what takes place, Brock Lesnar has added some much-needed intensity to the WWE roster.
After an entire year of John Cena and The Rock making fun of each other, Brock Lesnar is exactly what WWE needs to bring back another era of ruthless aggression.
