Major Feud Planned for Rock and Brock Lesnar for SummerSlam or WrestleMania

No matches have been confirmed for WrestleMania XXIX but we have a good idea of where stars like The Rock and Brock Lesnar will end up, but where will the two part-time megastars go afterwards?

According to F4Wonline (via, there has been much discussion by officials about a feud between WWE's Beast and its Brahma Bull.

The report states that the two will either face-off at this year's SummerSlam pay-per-view or next year at WrestleMania XXX.

Officials had thought of having the match at this years WrestleMania, but decided against it as they wanted The Rock in the WWE championship picture for this year's Show of Shows.

As has been reported, Lesnar recently signed a two-year contract extension that will see him perform sporadically in the WWE until WrestleMania XXXI. Details on the amount of appearances have yet to be leaked or disclosed.

F4Wonline previously noted (via that officials had planned a Summer feud between Lesnar and CM Punk, so either those plans have been nixed or more likely Brock will face either Rock or Punk at SummerSlam and then move on to the other for WrestleMania XXX.

Luckily for fans, there is quite a bit of history between Brock and Rock for the WWE to utilize.

Lesnar defeated The Rock at SummerSlam 2002 to win his first WWE championship, which would be enough of a lead in to a match between the two this Summer.

If that wasn't enough, Lesnar stated in his Death Clutch autobiography that his losing to The Rock at a Miami house show was a big part of his decision to leave the WWE back in 2004. WWE could use this to create a realistic, gripping storyline between the two.

Al rematch on the 11th anniversary of their first bout works, but "Rock vs Brock" would certainly draw enough interest to warrant a WrestleMania main-event, so it makes sense for WWE to hold the match at either pay-per-view.

And who knows? With the rapid fashion that things change in the WWE it wouldn't even be a huge shock to see Rock move from CM Punk to the next Paul Heyman guy and face Lesnar at this year's Mania.

Only time will tell when we'll see the feud but either way expect it to make a big impact.
