5 booking options for Brock Lesnar as WWE Universal Champion
We look ahead to potential feuds for The Beast Incarnate.
WrestleMania 33 is done and dusted, and now it is time for us to look to the future and what it holds for the WWE roster. First on that list is The Beast Incarnate, Brock Lesnar.
Lesnar finally broke his hoodoo against Goldberg on The Grandest Stage of Them All as he bested his opponent in a surprisingly entertaining match. He not only became the first man to kick out of the Jackhammer, but he also became the new WWE Universal Champion.
Now that the feud which ran all the way since Survivor Series is done and dusted, how does Lesnar move forward? Obviously, he is going to be in the main event picture considering he is the Universal Champion, but there are a number of different ways to book him going forward.
So, without any further ado, here are 5 booking options for Brock Lesnar as WWE Universal Champion:
#5) Roman Reigns
The one matchup that nobody wants to see but the one which we are probably going to get. Brock Lesnar’s advocate Paul Heyman made it a point to mention Roman Reigns and tease a potential clash between the only two men to have ever defeated The Undertaker at WrestleMania.
Reigns vs. Lesnar is something we have seen before, and the only reason their WWE Championship match at WrestleMania 31 didn’t leave a sour taste in everyone’s mouth was because Seth Rollins cashed in his Money in the Bank contract to pull off “The Heist of the Century.”
The problem is that they don’t have that get out of jail free card this time around. With Roman being Public Enemy Number 1 after retiring The Undertaker, it would be foolish to put him against Lesnar and then have him go over The Beast.
At the same time, it isn’t best for business if a part timer holds on to the belt for too long either. If the WWE picks this booking option, you can be assured that the fans will not be happy.
