With the 2012 WWE No Way Out pay-per-view out of the way, it’s time to realize that the main event of the majority of this summer will be Brock Lesnar vs. Triple H.
That’s not a bad thing, though.
These are two of the biggest names in WWE history and the fans will have a chance to see them brawling each other in what could be an amazing one-off SummerSlam match.
This is the definition of a dream feud.
The Paul Heyman Factor
While Brock Lesnar’s return to the WWE was stalled by his departure, the biggest flaw in the short stint back in the company was just how bad he was on the microphone.
That won’t be a problem now that the WWE has Paul Heyman back in the mix.
Heyman is one of the best talkers in the industry and his run of success with ECW and then with Lesnar the first time around makes him a valuable asset to this feud.
Brock can’t go toe-to-toe with Triple H on the mic, but Paul E. Dangerously can.
Triple H is Classic Wrestling
When the Undertaker and Triple H fought at WrestleMania 28, it was supposed to be the end of an era. Just a few months later, that era is back and challenging Brock Lesnar to a fight.
Love or hate Triple H and how he rose to power in the WWE, you have to respect his ability to tell a story in a match and on the mic. Add in the wildcard antics of Lesnar and Heyman, and this feud will be amazing.
Just like his match against Undertaker at WrestleMania, Triple H will painstakingly plan out every detail of this match and story to ensure that it is great. With Brock showing he still has great talent in the ring, this will be a battle for the ages.
Why WWE Needs This as the Main Event
There is no doubt that John Cena is the face of the WWE, but the combination of Triple H and Brock Lesnar has the ability to carry the product if the leader of the Cenation wasn’t the focal point.
With the focus shifting to Brock Lesnar, the WWE can allow Cena to have time off before being thrown into a match at SummerSlam against the Big Show or whoever the next feud will be against.
It’s clear that the man needs time away from the ring and the fans need time away from the star, so putting him on the shelf for a month would sting much less if the focal point of the company was Triple H and Brock.
Whether he gets his vacation or not is really anyone’s guess at this point.
