The supposed reasoning for a steel cage match in WWE is to have a brutal environment that prevents outside interference, locking the two wrestlers in a small and dangerous place to determine who is the true winner when it's down to just the two of them.
WWE fans know better than to believe that, as steel cage matches—more often than not—actually end up resulting in some sort of cheating that influences the outcome of the match.
Sometimes, an outsider slams the door shut on a wrestler trying to exit the cage. Once in a while, someone will climb the cage and either enter the ring itself or put a stop to a wrestler who is in the midst of a climb himself. There are plenty of ways that screwjobs have been booked for cage matches over the years.
With that being said, Brock Lesnar has the slimy Paul Heyman in his corner, who is no stranger to both cheating and gimmick matches. He can easily be one of the factors that contributes toward Brock Lesnar winning this match.
The fact that Lesnar doesn't have to simply pin Triple H on his own or make him say, "I quit" lends flexibility to the nature of his victory. For the people that would like to argue that Triple H shouldn't lose clean, there are escape routes. For the people that believe heels should work around the system as much as possible, this is certainly doable in this type of a match.
To wrap us up, even an easy-to-book and shady victory for Brock Lesnar is more beneficial than any sort of win for Triple H, because another loss for Lesnar hurts his drawing power and another win in the column for Triple H accomplishes nothing.
