WWE: Paul Heyman Proclaims Brock Lesnar King of Kings; Is He the King of WWE?

A night after one of the biggest matches of the year, Brock Lesnar opened up WWE Raw accompanied by Paul Heyman. The battle at SummerSlam left many to wonder if Triple H was going to retire from wrestling, and Heyman had no problem pouring salt in Triple H's wounds.

Heyman built up Triple H's reputation only to validate his point—that Lesnar beat one of the best and made him quit at SummerSlam. Heyman went on to call out Scott Armstrong, the referee from the night prior, for Lesnar to speak with him.

As the fans in the arena feared the worst for Armstrong, Lesnar simply rubbed his hands on Armstrong's head and told him "Good job," the only two words that Lesnar spoke in the opening of Raw.

Heyman then proclaimed Lesnar the new "King of Kings," which brought the crowd to a frenzy. The question now becomes, is Lesnar really the King of Kings, and is he the King of the WWE?

Has Lesnar surpassed all the other superstars in the WWE, including Triple H? 

From what Heyman proclaimed, it would seem so, but do Heyman's words have any validity? Going forward, it will be interesting to see who Lesnar will be tested with in the months to come as he continues his tear through the WWE.

There is certainly many questions going forward but for the time being, let the debate begin as to who the King of the WWE is.
