While many members of the WWE Universe have come out publicly to complain about the SummerSlam main event in which Brock Lesnar beat Triple H, the match was absolutely perfect for what it was.
In fact, the sooner we get this in-ring war again, the better.
According to PWInsider via NoDQ.com, Lesnar will likely to return to the ring at Survivor Series this year, and fans should be absolutely ecstatic about that news:
Word is that Brock Lesnar won't wrestle again until the Survivor Series pay-per-view in November. Lesnar still has plenty of dates left on his contract.
With an excellent match that saw both men bring their best, it has become very clear that this UFC-style fighter that Brock returned as is a great heel character. He can pull of different moves and incorporate so much of his real training into the matches.
What we saw at SummerSlam was something totally different from anything the WWE Universe has witnessed in the past, and the company realizes that.
Lesnar is a unique character worth every penny he will be paid.
As far as Triple H and the possibility of retiring after this match, there is no way that would happen. The news from PWInsider via NoDQ.com is that he will be back to fight again in a few months to possibly continue the feud with Brock:
Nobody within WWE expects Triple H to really be retiring from in-ring competition. The feeling is that Triple H still has many matches left. He's expected to go away for a few months and then come back for a rematch against Brock Lesnar, possibly at Survivor Series.
While Triple H teased possibly leaving the WWE ring for good after the match by apologizing to the crowd and milking his time, there is no way he would go out that way. After such a great match, not only is Triple H’s career not over, this feud itself is far from done.
Add in the fact that Paul Heyman is still there to make things interesting and HBK and his wonky eye are lurking with a broken arm, so there are still many ways to take this angle.
With more news that Shawn Michaels will actually be in attendance Monday at Raw (h/t PWInsider), there are questions about how the WWE will play this situation moving forward. As of this moment, Lesnar has broken HBK’s and Triple H’s arms, so I assume there will be no D-X chops on Monday night.
With part-time stars galore, it would be easy to put this whole feud on hold for awhile after addressing it tonight on Raw, but the WWE has to learn from the build to this match. Lesnar’s limited dates made it difficult to build it in an effective way, so next time around WWE should have an idea about how to handle it.
If Brock beats Triple H at SummerSlam like he should, he will look as strong as ever and will be a viable opponent for the Undertaker at WrestleMania 29. On the same card, Triple H can come out of retirement to fight Shawn Michaels.
While it sounds like fantasy booking, those are two very likely matches because of the direction this feud has taken.
