Ever since WWE announced Vince McMahon's return to next week's Monday Night RAW, there has been speculation about a Laurinaitis/McMahon matchup.
And that may very well come to pass.
Fans, however, might get a little more than they bargained for. And who better to deliver than Brock Lesnar? (Paul Heyman's voice echos in my head as I write the name).
The last time we saw Brock Lesnar on WWE programming, he broke Triple H's arm in a deadly kimura lock. Why? Because he felt like it. Triple H tried to push his weight around, belittle Laurinaitis, and in return, Johnny Ace let the Next Big Thing loose on the COO.
And did John Laurinaitis get punished for allowing such violence against the COO, Triple H? I haven't seen any backlash yet. So who's to say that it couldn't happen against another top figure in the WWE—the big cheese of them all—Vincent Kennedy McMahon?
Johnny is up for a performance review on next week's RAW, and it is very possible, even likely, that the boss will have more than a few criticisms of Johnny's management style. Will Brock Lesnar make an appearance, insisting on his demands to the greatest power of them all in the business? Will Mr. McMahon allow Lesnar to continue his tantrum?
Like the theme song declares, "No chance in hell."
But Vince poses a threat to Johnny's power. And it isn't beyond Laurinaitis to let the "Ass-Kicker" interfere. It would be a nice way to continue the story, with Laurinaitis gaining momentum for what some have called the "super corporation." Having Lesnar take out the McMahon family generates the type of heat you'd expect a super heel to receive. And McMahon is all for super heels.
And even if Brock Lesnar doesn't make an appearance, Big Show could be the alternative. Either way, the boss isn't safe.
