Last night, during the Extreme Rules pay-per-view, WWE decision-makers booked an excellent show. Despite Daniel Bryan’s injury, Neville and Bad News Barrett put on one of the greatest pre-show matches in WWE history. It truly was Neville’s breakthrough match in WWE. Throughout the night, the Big Show and Roman Reigns impressed everybody.
Seth Rollins and Randy Orton’s match started out slow, but the WWE champion impressed with an RKO for the victory inside a steel cage. He escaped the cage even though Kane interfered. There was one thing that was blatantly missing, Brock Lesnar and Paul Heyman.
In an earlier report by the Inquisitr, Brock Lesnar indeed signed a big contract, to which Vince McMahon catered. The business decision made perfect sense because Lesnar and Heyman are WWE’s biggest attractions. Due to the popularity of the former-WWE champion and his main man, they will have to be back on WWE television soon.
According to Daily Wrestling News, the dynamic duo of Brock Lesnar and Paul Heyman will be back on WWE programming momentarily.
“Dave Meltzer of The Wrestling Observer Newsletter notes that the plan is for Paul Heyman to be off WWE TV until July, likely when Brock Lesnar will also return. We noted before that there were rumors after WrestleMania 31 of Lesnar returning to feud with WWE World Heavyweight Champion Seth Rollins.”
There are two pay-per-views that come between Extreme Rules and SummerSlam. They are Payback and Money in the Bank in succession. At Payback, it is rumored that Roman Reigns, Randy Orton, and Seth Rollins will take part in a triple threat match for the WWE World Heavyweight championship. It was leaked in a video that spread across the Internet a few days ago.
After the three of them fight for the prestigious belt, Rollins will be victorious and it will then set forth another challenger for Brock Lesnar who returns to the WWE in July. That’s also the same month as the Money in the Bank ladder match. Will Lesnar win WWE’s briefcase?
Him winning it is one option, but it’s also very unlikely. For starters, that would waste another WWE Money in the Bank opportunity on a veteran that doesn’t need it. Two, Dean Ambrose is rumored to win the briefcase this year.
Three, Brock Lesnar has a rematch clause that he’s waiting to use upon his return. The WWE is in a win-win situation with their WWE championship at the moment. Lesnar will demand a rematch when he comes back and Dean Ambrose might win the case. That way, Seth Rollins, Brock Lesnar and Dean Ambrose will fight for the WWE title. Now, that’s “best for business.”
