4 Reasons why Brock Lesnar will successfully cash in the Money in the Bank contract
Brock Lesnar shocked the world when he won the men's Money in the Bank ladder match at the titular PPV last month. The Beast Incarnate entered the match as Raw's unannounced 4th participant after the original contestant Sami Zayn got taken out earlier that night.
The fans started an uproar on social media after Lesnar won the MITB ladder match. They were critical of the company for giving Lesnar opportunities that could've helped other regular superstars.
Irrespective of the fan backlash, WWE continues to promote Brock Lesnar as Mr. Beast in the Bank. Paul Heyman announced on Twitter Lesnar would cash in the contract on this week's Raw.
Lesnar laid out a vicious attack on Universal Champion Seth Rollins on this week's Raw but refused to cash in the contract even when Rollins was beaten down. Paul Heyman pleaded with Lesnar to go ahead with the cash in, but Lesnar refused and told him to wait until Super ShowDown this Friday.
WWE would know the decision to give Lesnar the MITB contract would cause a huge fan uproar. But they preferred to go with their choice, and there should be a concrete reason behind their decision.
Their next decision would cause an even big fan uproar as things are looking like Brock Lesnar will indeed walk out of Super ShowDown with a world title around his waist. The following four reasons might throw some light on why Lesnar will have a successful MITB cash in.
#4 His retirement from MMA means more time for WWE
The fans who always complain about Brock Lesnar not showing up on Raw every week might have noticed the Beast Incarnate has made four consecutive appearances on WWE television starting from MITB to this week’s Raw.
That's not the Brock Lesnar the fans have been seeing for the past few years. The following could be the reason why we see more Brock Lesnar in our television for the past three weeks.
UFC president Dana White announced last April while talking to ESPN that Brock Lesnar had informed him he has no intention to step back inside the Octagon for a fight and that he had retired.
Brock Lesnar confronted UFC Heavyweight Champion Daniel Cormier at UFC 226, and things were looking like Brock Lesnar would make a return to MMA after he dropped the Universal title to Roman Reigns at SummerSlam.
Lesnar had even entered the UFC's mandatory anti-doping program anticipating to make a return to the Octagon. But the news of Lesnar's MMA retirement completely caught the fans off guard.
Now that Lesnar will not have to spend his time training for an MMA return it could mean he will now concentrate more on his pro wrestling career.
WWE will make use of this opportunity and try to use Lesnar as a more regular figure, and the chances of seeing him successfully cash in the MITB contract looks brighter now more than ever.
