Brock Lesnar has struggled in his return to the WWE, but he'll have an excellent opportunity to get his career back on track Sunday at SummerSlam 2012.

Lesnar's budding feud with Triple H will potentially reach a conclusion when they battle in a non-title match, and if the WWE knows what's good for the brand, Lesnar will surely be the winner. After that, he can begin his ascent back up the company ladder.

It's been nearly a decade since Lesnar was the face of wrestling, a seemingly invincible machine who couldn't be stopped. Unfortunately, with his health issues, as well as his recent losses in both mixed martial arts and the WWE, he has lost much of his appeal.

He can regain everything on Sunday, though, and I fully expect him to. The WWE has seen Lesnar's value in the past, and while they may be reluctant to invest so much in him after he left the company in 2004, they should ultimately realize that a dominant Brock Lesnar is the best thing for professional wrestling.

With his skills and abrasive personality, Lesnar is a captivating figure, and his presence instantly makes the WWE more enjoyable. Whether you love him or hate him, you can't deny that Lesnar generates interest and money.

That's why you should see him seize his opportunity at SummerSlam. He's been unimpressive since stepping back in the ring, but it's likely all just a set up for him to claim redemption.

I'm picking Lesnar to beat Triple H on Sunday, and if he does, it won't be long before he reclaims his position as the face of the WWE.
