WWE SummerSlam 2012: Brock Lesnar's Matches Should Be No Holds Barred
The man that returned the night after WrestleMania 28 and hit John Cena with an F-5 is not "The Next Big Thing." No, the Brock Lesnar that is scheduled to wrestle Triple H at SummerSlam isn't the same man that took the WWE by storm almost a decade ago.
After leaving the WWE, Lesnar made a name for himself in the world of Mixed Martial Arts. In his MMA career, Lesnar was 5-3. The UFC would become Lesnar's stomping ground when he won the Heavyweight Championship in November 2008.
Lesnar's style has changed dramatically since returning to the WWE. It was apparent during his Extreme Rules bout with Cena that Lesnar's wrestling style is very heavily influenced by his MMA tenure.
The WWE should take full advantage of Lesnar's MMA ability and his popularity in the sport. Paul Heyman should walk out on Monday Night Raw and demand that Lesnar only compete in No Holds Barred matches.
In essence, Brock Lesnar should only be competing in matches where he's allowed to outright fight. Brock Lesnar vs. John Cena from this year's Extreme Rules is a perfect example of why this would work.
Lesnar has been booked as an unstoppable beast since returning. Based on Heyman's reaction when Lesnar broke Shawn Michaels' arm on this past edition of Raw, it seems that not even Heyman can control Lesnar.
One way they've gone about making Lesnar an unstoppable force is by accenting his MMA experience. Everything from his ring attire to his use of the Kimura Lock plays to his fighting background. The WWE has even gone so far to mention that Lesnar is a former UFC Heavyweight Champion.
It would certainly seem that the WWE has gone out of their way to use Lesnar as a way to reach out to MMA fans. It would make sense that they have Lesnar only fight in matches where he's not restricted to just wrestling.
