WWE No Mercy 2017: 5 Possible Endings to Braun Strowman vs. Brock Lesnar
On Sunday, Braun Strowman will get the 1-on-1 Universal Championship match the WWE Universe know he deserves. He will go toe to toe with Brock Lesnar at No Mercy, which arguably boasts a better card than Summerslam.
The build has been extremely physical, and it will all culminate in a winner takes all brawl at the Staples Center. For once, the Beast hasn't been positioned as the favourite on television, and the announcers have repeatedly hinted at a title change. This is, of course, one path to take, but there are other alternatives available.
So, without further ado, here are 5 possible endings to Braun Strowman vs. Brock Lesnar at No Mercy.
#5 Brock Lesnar cheats to win
One of the reasons why this feud has worked is that WWE has managed to give Lesnar a sense of vulnerability.
The Monster among Men has gotten the better of Lesnar in recent wee and it’s clear he has the Beast’s number. To beat Strowman, Lesnar is going to have resort to tactics he never thought he’d have to.
A few years ago at Summerslam, The Undertaker cheated to defeat The Beast Incarnate. And Lesnar might have to resort to those tactics if he wants to beat Braun Strowman.
A low-blow while the referee’s back is turned or a Paul Heyman distraction would allow the Beast to retain the title whilst still making Strowman look strong. It’s a win-win for both parties.
