Who will The Beast feast upon next?
Whom will The Beast feast upon next?

While many were disappointed by how the main event of No Mercy played out, one thing is for certain. Brock Lesnar, despite his part-time schedule, is still the company's top player, and the main event scene on RAW will be built around him.

It is being widely speculated that Lesnar will embark upon a leave of absence very soon indeed and that he will only return in a few months. This begs the question, who will be next to challenge the might of the Beast Incarnate, possibly at the Survivor Series pay-per-view?

We nominate 5 possible contenders for the role. Bear in mind, the predominant rumour is still that Lesnar carries the Universal Championship all the way to WrestleMania 34 and Roman Reigns will be the man to dethrone him. With that in mind, the Big Dog is a notable exclusion from this list.

Also, consider the fact that The Big Show and Big Cass are out with injuries. Remember that Brock has run through monsters such as Goldberg, Samoa Joe and Braun Strowman, this year alone.

We nominate 5 of the likeliest contenders for the game of thrones that is the top spot on RAW, right now. We want to hear from you in the comments, with your opinion on our list, and whom you think should be the likeliest contender for the prize!

#5 Bray Wyatt

This was a dream match for many, not very long ago!
This was a dream match for many, not very long ago!

Remember how The Wyatt Family had united at last year's Royal Rumble event, to eliminate Brock Lesnar from the mix, raising the possibility of a Bray Wyatt vs. Brock Lesnar feud? We believe that this match could still be a massive draw.

Before you dismiss Bray Wyatt as someone who's much lower down the ladder when compared to Lesnar, bear in mind that he was WWE Champion as recently as this year. Even without the support of the Wyatt Family, Wyatt has access to forces that few can comprehend, and the outcome of such a clash will be absolutely titanic.

Of course, much rehabilitation will have to be done before Bray Wyatt can be considered a threat. Wyatt, in his own way, is a pretty big and agile man, and we believe that with good writing, there is immense potential in this clash of bulls.
