Five reasons WWE still needs Brock Lesnar
Believe it or not, WWE still needs Brock Lesnar.
Again, as hard as it is for The WWE Universe to understand this, the results still show that having Brock Lesnar on your roster comes with a certain number of benefits - the kind of benefits that WWE is not willing to give up, especially with the condition the roster is in. They are pretty much forced to rely on his services.
Of course, that's not a bad thing, and Lesnar truly is an assist to any show that he takes part in, but for one reason or another, The WWE Universe never seems to feel the same. In fact, the fans usually see Lesnar as a blight on the company on and someone that has taken its title picture hostage from time to time.
With that being said and Lesnar making his surprise return at Money in the Bank to put himself back in the title picture, here are five reasons why WWE still needs Brock Lesnar and while he will be a mainstay in WWE's squared circle for years to come. As always, let us know your thoughts in the comments below!
#5 To beat AEW
AEW held its first ever double or nothing event in Las Vegas, Nevada last month, and while the company did put on a pretty spectacular showing, they now face the daunting task of trying to turn that into a product capable of taking on WWE. The problem with that, however, is the fact that AEW has several deficiencies in their roster that WWE can easily take advantage of.
For example, it's no secret that Brock Lesnar carries a lot of name recognition with him for his time in The UFC and his previous stints in WWE, which gives him a lot of upsides! Think about it! AEW can have Kenny Omega, The Young Bucks, Chris Jericho, Jon Moxley, and even Cody Rhodes, but they still don't have a legitimate fighter like Lesnar.
In the end, that's going to be a huge deficiency that AEW needs to fix and will give WWE a huge advantage moving forward. Not only is that obvious by the legitimacy that Lesnar still brings to the squared circle, but also by his drawing power when it comes to big money pay per views.
