WWE SummerSlam 2012: Why Triple H Is the Perfect Opponent for Brock Lesnar
Sunday night at SummerSlam, Brock Lesnar will wrestle his second match for World Wrestling Entertainment when he meets Triple H in what is billed as the main event of the summer spectacular.
Triple H is Brock Lesnar's ideal opponent.
He is a master storyteller who masks any and all physical limitations by integrating a story into his matches that fans can invest themselves in. Considering Brock's health, as well as Triple H's age and the wear and tear on his body, the story element of sports-entertainment will likely play a very big role in the match and there is no other active superstar appearing at SummerSlam better-suited to filling that role than the "Cerebral Assassin."
At Extreme Rules, John Cena was dismantled and destroyed by Lesnar before making his Superman-like comeback and picking up an upset win. Sunday night, there will be no upsets.
Triple H has endured so many of World Wrestling Entertainment's hellish gimmick matches that fans believe him to be a legitimate badass. They believe he poses a threat to Lesnar and that will undoubtedly make for a much more evenly-fought match than we saw in April.
It also means that, should Lesnar leave Los Angeles victorious, he would have earned his win. A win over Triple H means something because of the aura of greatness that surrounds him. He is one of the best performers to ever set foot in the squared circle and he has beaten so many other Hall of Fame inductees, stood toe-to-toe with the most vicious of any era, that being able to outlast him in any match is an incredible accomplishment.
And Brock Lesnar needs a match against that type of opponent. He needs to beat on and be beaten on by someone like Triple H. The Extreme Rules match against Cena made Brock look like a bully who was outsmarted and beaten at the last second.
Sunday, whether he wins or loses against Triple H, Brock will have earned the respect of a large portion of the WWE fans and that is due, largely, to stepping between the ropes with "The Game."
