In life, not everyone is qualified for everything.

You wouldn't just anyone delivering your child. You wouldn't want just anyone doing an emergency landing on a commercial plane. You wouldn't want just anyone cutting open your chest and performing life-threatening heart surgery.

It doesn't matter if they stayed at a Holiday Inn Express last night—the average person is not qualified to do those things.

The same rule applies when trying to figure out which wrestler is best suited to face Brock Lesnar at Wrestlemania.

Not everyone is qualified.

Vince McMahon is trying to sign Lesnar for Wrestlemania because he's hoping to create a big splash for his annual PPV. It doesn't take a business genius to realize that the former UFC Heavyweight Champion is a big marketing machine.

With that in mind, you're going to need to find an opponent who is worthy of such a huge spotlight.

You can immediately rule out John Morrison, Kofi Kingston, Bryan Danielson and Kane. As talented as those guys are, they are not worthy of the spotlight. No one outside of WWE and the wrestling world really care enough about those guys to shell out big money on a pay-per-view.

There's a crumpled-up napkin somewhere in one of McMahon's slacks. On that napkin is a list of wrestlers that are worthy of working a big money match against Lesnar at Wrestlemania.

I can guarantee that there are less than five guys on that list.
