Cena v. Lesnar, Part 1?

Brock Lesnar returns to the WWE
to the joy of the fans.

Brock Lesnar returned to the WWE just under a month ago, and already he is facing the face (okay, I guess former face) of the company, John Cena. You would think there would be more build to a match of this stature, perhaps let Brock prove himself with some warm-up matches with maybe another former champion or, perhaps even the current champion before making his way to this WrestleMania-, or even Summer Slam-esque match.

Here's why he's not, in my opinion.

First of all, if you think it's a one-time match, you're wrong. Just because this is an Extreme Rules match, usually one of the last types of matches guys use to settle a feud, doesn't mean it's the end for these guys. There are all kinds of matches these guys could meet in, enough to fill a year!

Now, that doesn't mean I think this will last a year. My second point is this will be what Cena needed. As Edge said, he needs to wake up. Cena more and more is just going through the motions. He has too much going on in his life, and it's wearing on him. I think they'll meet maybe a few times, Cena getting torn apart more and more each time until he disappears for a little bit- maybe a month- and comes back better than ever.

Meanwhile, Lesnar will move on to bigger and better things. After all, the face of the company should have the WWE Championship at some point during his one-year contract.

From what I've read on the Internet, someone somewhere found out that Chris Jericho's WWE contract allegedly ends before Summer Slam. It's possible this person who spread this information is dead wrong or made it up based on his own speculation, but, for our purposes, let's pretend he's right. That means his storyline with CM Punk would have to end by then, and a new contender for the WWE Championship would have to be found.

Enter Lesnar.

Now, could Lesnar hold on to the belt until WrestleMania (in NEW JERSEY, by the way, in case you just happened to forgot) and make the assumed Brock v. Rock match a title match? Well, kids, that's speculation for a future blog...
