The WWE SummerSlam 2014 results are in and Brock Lesnar is the new WWE Heavyweight Champion after having defeated John Cena using 16 suplexes. Yep, that’s right… ouch!
In a related report by The Inquisitr, even Triple H says Lesnar is just a farmer at heart who happens to love fighting on the weekends (speaking of farms, Hulk Hogan just lost his). It’s already believed that John Cena will be taking a vacation after being beat, which is not too surprising considering the whooping he just went through.
Twitter is already lighting up with comments about the match, with many saying it was like a UFC Champion taking on a WWE superstar. Besides all of those crunching suplexes, Lesnar was actually laughing at one point and the end of the match saw Lesnar defeating Cena via a pinfall after the F5. People close to the ring swear they smell blood, urine, and vomit in the middle of the ring, although that’s just hyperbole based upon Lesnar’s threat before the match took place. Triple H is already talking about the victory, saying, “Love it when a good plan comes together.”
But what is that plan exactly? Many thought this victory was practically forecast months ago simply because Lesnar beat Undertaker’s streak and it just does not make any logical sense for the Beast to be put down at this point. Despite Hogan saying otherwise, most fans predicted Brock Lesnar Vs. John Cena would go to the UFC champ. I even saw WWE fans openly betting they would give away a Xbox console system if Cena actually managed to win.
The real question is whether Brock will still continue to fight on a monthly basis in order to defend the title or if he’ll pull a disappearing act like he did after taking Undertaker’s streak. We do know that his WWE schedule includes showing up for Monday Night RAW appearances in the future, and it’s believed that Lesnar is scheduled to work at the Night Of Champions PPV on September 21, 2014. This obviously makes sense since how could you have a Night Of Champions without the actual WWE champ in attendance?
While it’s possible Royal Rumble 2015 could include a defense of the title, Paul Heyman already claimed Brock’s part timer status was not going to change even if he holds the WWE Heavyweight Championship. Right now the rumor is that the WWE will allow Brock to hold onto the WWE title belt until even WrestleMania 31. Technically, this would violate the WWE’s 30 day rule for their title belts, but when was the last time that rule was seriously enforced?
If this turns out to be the case, it’s believed that the WM 31 match will focus on Brock Lesnar Vs. Roman Reigns. If you are really into rumors, you might want to check out our article on how Brock’s WWE contract is believed to allow him to fight in both the UFC and the WWE at the same time, which brings up the highly unlikely scenario of Brock becoming champ of both worlds.
Are you satisfied with having Brock Lesnar as the WWE World Heavyweight champion? Do you think the WrestleMania 31 focus on a match with Reigns is a good plan or just predictable?
