Wrestling fans, what we saw at the end of WWE Monday Night Raw on Aug. 13, 2012 was a usual tell-tale sign of what is going to transpire at the following event. Brock Lesnar went over huge to end Raw and took the decisive advantage in the feud with Triple H.
If wrestling history bodes true, Triple H will walk into Staples Center and defeat Lesnar in the fight of his life.
However, I feel there is only one result that needs to take place. Brock Lesnar should defeat Triple H in one of the most controversial matches of all time.
Since Brock returned to the WWE, he has only had one match and was defeated by John Cena. Although he has been quite dominant in the feuds building up to the two matches he's been booked in, Lesnar needs a decisive victory in order to keep his heat.
Triple H has repeatedly stolen the heat from popular performers in the past. He has always strategically inserted himself into feuds and big matches in main-event spots. Whether it was Booker T, Rob Van Dam or most recently, CM Punk, Triple H always finds a way to squash the next big star.
Although I am pretty positive that Triple H will come out victorious at Summerslam, Brock Lesnar needs this victory to set up his next huge Pay-Per-View match. Rumors have been circulating as to just when it will be. Personally, after Brock disposes of Triple H, I'd have him take aim at The Rock.
Who Should Be Brock Lesnar's Next Opponent?
Ten years ago, Brock Lesnar defeated The Rock to become the WWE Undisputed Champion at Summerslam 2002. There was no rematch and The Rock never got an opportunity for any kind of revenge. However, all signs point to The Rock taking on CM Punk and having another match with John Cena at The Royal Rumble and WrestleMania.
Whether Brock Lesnar finds himself in a rekindled feud with The Undertaker or in an epic clash with a returning Stone Cold Steve Austin, Brock needs this victory to move towards something huge. If Triple H defeats Brock, his next encounter won't mean anything coming after two huge losses.
I am, however, open to a rematch between Brock Lesnar and Triple H if Brock wins at Summerslam.
Would WWE really be stupid enough to pay huge money for Brock Lesnar only to have him job out every single time he steps inside the squared circle? The answer is simple: YES.
Yes, they are really THAT stupid. WWE has made outrageous decisions over the years when it comes to the heir to the throne, Triple H.
If Triple H defeats Lesnar, it will cripple any chance of the WWE audience taking Lesnar seriously in any upcoming major match. Even if he does the damage that he did to John Cena at Extreme Rules 2012, it will still be tough for Lesnar to bounce back.
This match needs to be brutal, bloody and as controversial as possible. Since Shawn Michaels has been scrapped from the match, I would add Stephanie McMahon to the corner of Triple H. If there is ever a time to pull something like this, Summerslam is it.
If it was up to me, I would have Brock Lesnar win the match and then completely shatter the arm of Stephanie McMahon after the match concludes with a bloody, beaten Triple H handcuffed to the ropes. WWE can start to slowly build to a huge rematch between the two for the Hell in a Cell Pay-Per-View in October.
We all know Triple H will get his win...and being the babyface in the feud, he should get it in the second match to officially settle the score. If WWE allows Triple H and Brock Lesnar to square off inside Hell in a Cell in October, it will spike the buyrate and give WWE something huge to build-up to in the Fall season.
