After last week's attack on Shawn Michaels, then his destruction of Triple H at SummerSlam, Brock Lesnar is leaving a lot of bodies in his wake.

There are a number of directions WWE could go with Lesnar, but one match makes a lot of sense on so many levels. 

Shawn Michaels has teased the fans on Twitter, by posting that he is going to be looking for a satellite truck, which obviously leads to the conclusion that he will be appearing on Raw tonight. 

Time for me to go, I gotta make a few calls and see if i can get a Satellite Truck out here by tomorrow night!! Good Night all!!

Michaels and Triple H are in the same boat right now, as WWE.com ran a story that Triple H broke his arm in the match last night. This comes just one week after Michaels was reported to have suffered a broken arm thanks to Lesnar. 

With that in mind, the only thing that makes sense is Michaels issuing a challenge to Lesnar for a match, potentially at Survivor Series. I would like to see the match at WrestleMania, but I keep getting the feeling that Lesnar's spot on that show is reserved for the Undertaker. 

Everyone constantly talks about a Michaels comeback match, so I know this is nothing new, but think about what WWE is setting up right now. 

What point does Michaels have appearing on Raw tonight other than to issue some kind of challenge? Granted, Michaels having no purpose on the show doesn't stop WWE from using him whenever it can. 

Is he going to just update us on his status, then go back to the woods hunting? That would certainly be nice of him—and a good way for WWE to kill time during the long three-hour show, but it does nothing for anyone. 

We know Lesnar and Paul Heyman will be on Raw tonight, so there is going to have to be some hook to keep them coming back at Survivor Series and into the big WrestleMania season next year. 

A match between Michaels and Lesnar has been given the perfect setup already, with the old, beloved Hall of Famer being taken out by the monster with no remorse for anyone or anything. It would have the potential to be something really special. 

All of this comes down to Michaels wanting to do another match, and retirement in the wrestling business is a joke, so there is some hope.
