Much to the dismay of the entire WWE Universe, Brock Lesnar is again the WWE Universal Champion, and we're already looking forward to the day he is dethroned. Ever since the day he walked into Money in the Bank and claimed the briefcase, fans were worried he'd be on top in no time, and unfortunately, it looks like there's no one around to stop Brock.

The company has tried to give Roman Reigns the top push to take over, but that's failed, and it's highly unlikely that Seth Rollins will beat him again for the Championship, so where does that leave us? So without further ado, sit back and read along as we look to the future and 5 possible wrestlers that could dethrone Brock Lesnar (while many of these are fantasies, they're all possible sometime in the future).

#5 Aleister Black

On the surface, Aleister Black may not seem like someone worthy of Brock Lesnar, but if WWE continue to build the aura around the Dutch Destroyer, he might be a great option down the line. Inside the ring, there are few in WWE that can compete with the former NXT Champion, and if WWE are serious about him being a main event babyface for the company, this is certainly something they should explore.

He just had his first singles PPV victory over Cesaro at Extreme Rules, and if that quality can continue, there's no doubt that SmackDown Live may have found its next big star. While Black is considered small in comparison to Lesnar, the way he carries himself indicates he can fight way above his weight limit, and he's not someone that Brock could just overlook.

Unfortunately, this may be the least likely one on our entire list here, but if WWE continue to build Aleister as the brooding destroyer that he is, then he could be a dark horse for this role.
