Paul Heyman has a way with words. Among other obvious statements, the match between Brock Lesnar and the Undertaker is going to keep the WWE Universe off their seat. Not only are they two polarizing figures in WWE history, but animosity lies within their rivalry.
When Undertaker lost to Brock Lesnar at WrestleMania 30, a part of the WWE Universe’s spirit died with it. The feat was an illustrious figurehead for sports entertainment. As for the Undertaker’s greatness, even Finn Balor, the WWE NXT champion, would choose him for his dream match.
Heyman is doing an exceptional job at promoting the match, even with he’s not on WWE television. During an interview with WTOP in Washington, D.C., Heyman promoted the match between Undertaker and Lesnar, while staying in character at the same time.
“I think The Undertaker is the one who needs to up his game. I don’t understand why anybody doesn’t understand the correlation here. I don’t think The Undertaker wanted to lose at Wrestlemania 30 either, but he had no choice in the matter. He got his a** kicked by Brock Lesnar, he got beaten by Brock Lesnar, he got beat up by Brock Lesnar, he got victimized by Brock Lesnar, and he got conquered by Brock Lesnar. And the very same thing is going to happen next Sunday at SummerSlam.”
“I didn’t say Undertaker’s time is up. That’s putting words in my mouth. I think if The Undertaker picked a fight with anybody right now, The Undertaker would easily win. I don’t see anybody being able to stand up to The Undertaker. There’s not a man alive right now that can step into the ring with The Undertaker who’s this driven, this focused and now has something to make up for since he lost at WrestleMania 30.”
Tonight on WWE Raw, Brock Lesnar and the Undertaker will be face-to-face before their epic confrontation at SummerSlam this Sunday. As far as another full-scale brawl, the WWE may not want to saturate the specialty of their first set of fisticuffs several weeks ago. It made the rivalry mean something more.
Lesnar and Undertaker will most-likely close the show this evening. The WWE has too much riding on this match to end with anything else. John Cena will make his return to WWE Raw tonight. Still, his feud with Rollins has remained at a premium, just because of Rollins’ excellence on the mic. Either way, the WWE needs a good “go-home” show before WWE SummerSlam.
