WWE: 7 Superstars Brock Lesnar Will Destroy
As soon as he came back, he's gone again.
For the first time in recent memory, one of WWE's major Superstars has returned, made a huge impact in the company and on the fans, only to disappear.
Wanting to save Brock's contracted dates for this year that he is obligated to WWE, we are instead getting his good friend and former agent, Paul Heyman. Heyman claims that Lesnar has quit, adding yet another layer to this storyline, and no matter how this plays out, one thing is for certain.
Brock's coming back. And, he likely will not be in a good mood.
The War Machine's path of destruction thus far has been focused pretty much on one guy, John Cena, who became nothing more than a tackling dummy for the better part of three weeks.
But, when Lesnar returns, I happen to believe that a good, old-fashioned tear through the WWE roster is in order.
Brock could take out his frustrations on an unsuspecting locker room, terrorizing one Superstar after another, until whatever is left of his positive reaction from the crowd is used up, and becomes a heel pop, as nature intended.
So, who could be on Brock Lesnar's hit list? Glad you asked.
7- Santino Marella
Love me some Santino.
And, it appears that I am not the only one, as the guy is riding a huge wave of fan support, and is enjoying the most push, the most face time, that he has ever had in his career.
Oh, yeah, and he's beating everybody. Not bad for a worker who, at one time, could not buy a victory.
But, on a Brock Lesnar rampage? Santino is nothing more than a speed bump.
All the work that has gone into putting Santino over, all the effort that the man himself has made to rising up where he is now, all of that will mean nothing if he crosses the path of the man known as the War Machine.
The truth is, Santino is a sympathetic character, even before his rise to relevancy on Raw. Fans love him, and they want to see him succeed, to achieve great things in WWE.
Getting his hide handed to him by Brock Lesanr? Not so much.
6- Brodus Clay
Brodus Clay is still undefeated.
Think about that for a second. Brodus, though he is extremely entertaining, and a real favorite among WWE fans, is essentially running a joke gimmick.
He smiles, he dances, he shakes like he's having a conniption, and calls himself the Funkasaurus.
You could say he's the comic relief, and you would be right. But, to call him a joke is to underestimate him.
He has yet to lose a match, and his latest win over former WWE Champion The Miz, may have just made him a real force to be reckoned with in the company.
Of course, if Brock Lesnar gets a hold of him, Brodus will quickly become an endangered species.
The comedy routine would stop, and though Brodus could go back to his intimidating, brutish roots when faced with the power game that Brock utilizes, the fact is, he would likely soon fall to the Next Big Thing.
Somebody call the doctor.
There's just something about seeing the ultra-intense Brock Lesnar taking out a smiling babyface, and R-Truth definitely fits that role.
Truth was a paranoid heel, who randomly attacked other WWE Superstars, and accused John Cena of being a part of a huge conspiracy to hold him down. He was as whacked out as a heel could be, and his grip of reality was slipping away more and more every day.
None of that has really changed, to be honest. The only difference now is that he's no longer attacking anyone.
Truth's return to babyface status has put him right back into the fans' good graces, and now it does seem that his character is still more concerned with his own reality than with ruining anyone's day.
What better target to put in Brock Lesnar's way?
I can imagine Truth looking down by his side, talking to a Little Jimmy that only he can see, and Brock flashing a quick, sarcastic smile before he takes his head off with a monster clothesline.
Again, it's all about the big-time villain attacking the favorite, and though it's somewhat of a cheap way to build heat, no one can deny the results.
4- The Great Khali
I personally have one reason for wanting to see this one.
Just the thought of Khali on Brock's shoulders, then being spun around, and slammed face-first onto the mat, is a sight that we have to see.
Lesnar has never backed down from anyone in the ring, despite their size and strength. Though Khali would tower over Brock, and undoubtedly bring a big pop from the crowd, there is no mystery as to who would come out on top.
Khali may not be Andre the Giant in terms of his overall popularity or importance to the company, but he is still a guy that brings fans to their feet, if only because he is such a physical attraction.
Khali has been bested before, but receiving the F-5 from Brock Lesnar in the middle of the ring, would be another feather in Brock's hat, and provide an incredible highlight reel.
Oh, Hornswoggle? Time to earn your keep.
We all know what that means, right? That means it's time for a big bump, and it's time to see the little guy eat some canvas.
Okay, we're not talking about serious injury here, of course, let's be realistic. The guy is not a punching bag, after all.
But, when it comes to Brock Lesnar, and whoever may be in his way, the fact is, no one is safe.
Big or small, once Brock has a Superstar in his sights, there is no turning back, and the same is true for Hornswoggle.
The F-5 may not be possible with Hornswoggle, but getting thrown around by Lesnar would get the War Machine such incredible heat, that he would likely get booed out of the building.
And, that is the whole point.
2- Zack Ryder
Zack Ryder received his fair share of punishment during the storyline with John Cena and Kane.
Ryder was tossed around like a rag doll by the Big Red Machine, and ultimately paid the price for being a buddy of WWE's biggest Superstar.
He has arguably not been the same since.
So, while he's down, why not kick him for good measure?
Brock Lesnar would do with Zack what Kane did, and then some. He would completely wreck the guy, and get an immediate reaction from fans.
Ryder's career may not exactly be on the fast track up, as was previously predicted, but while he is still in the process of getting back on his feet, one quick attack from Lesnar does not necessarily mean that he is taking a step back.
The attack could, after all, be thwarted by Zack's old buddy, John Cena.
And, what could happen after that?
1- John Cena
You guessed it.
When John Cena showed up on Raw the night after his war with Brock Lesnar at WWE Extreme Rules, it looked as though he was going to step away for a while.
But, that did not happen, of course, and now we're looking at Cena vs. John Laurinaitis at Over the Limit.
Laurinaitis, who has not been in the ring on a regular basis for years, is expected to be the man that gives Cena a follow up to what could go down as the biggest fight of his career.
No pressure, Ace.
While many fans are questioning the logic behind this bout, I for one believe it will go in another direction.
Brock Lesnar interferes, and gives Cena the break that we all thought he was going to take after Extreme Rules.
John Cena is still the company's top guy, and getting one more beating from the Next Big Thing will not change that. It will help John, because when he returns, he will be as hot as ever.
And, for Brock, it gives him real bragging rights. His first match back in WWE, and his subsequent "walking out" would be just background noise to the moment when he stands in the ring on Monday Night Raw, boasting that he put Cena out of business indefinitely.
Brock's loss to John at Extreme Rules would be overshadowed. Lesnar's destruction of Cena would be more than enough to make fans forget about the ending that so many feel should not have happened in the first place.
Retribution. Domination. These are most likely on Brock Lesnar's agenda when he returns to WWE, and if there's one man who will do the right thing for business, giving Brock the rub, it's John Cena.
