Tonight on Raw, Brock Lesnar made his first appearance on WWE programming in over 3 months. After refusing to come to the ring for the most of the night, he finally decided to enter the arena during the final segment of the show.
After getting in the face of both Kurt Angle and Constable Baron Corbin, Lesnar would proceed to hit the Olympic Gold Medalist with an F5.
But that wasn’t all.
Throughout the night, Heyman was encouraging Lesnar to go to the ring, because if he didn’t, Heyman would be fired from WWE.
This caused The Beast to start to become extremely frustrated, and even quite physical with his advocate. Lesnar even almost choked out Heyman to end Raw.
As Lesnar started to tell Heyman that they weren’t friends, and order him around all night, it showed me a more sadistic side to The Beast that we hadn’t seen for a long time. And as the segments unfolded, a thought came into my head.
And it’s one that I’m not excited about stating.
In my opinion, even in the summer of 2018, Brock Lesnar is still a draw for WWE.
Many people say that Lesnar needs to go away for good. His lack of presence on WWE programming has made the Universal Championship an almost worthless championship in the eyes of most members of the WWE Universe.
However, you cannot deny the fact that whenever he is on television, and is allowed to do what he can do, he creates remarkably dramatic and compelling segments that keep the viewers wondering what is going to happen next.
Lesnar even got the crowd cheering for Roman Reigns in a serious manner. The Beast did in 2 minutes what WWE has been trying to do for over 4 years.
Will Brock Lesnar be in WWE forever? No. In fact, my gut tells me that he will lose the Universal Championship at Summerslam; either to Reigns, or to a cash-in by Braun Strowman.
However, I would not be shocked if WWE kept the title on him until his fight with Daniel Cormier, in the Octagon in December, for publicity purposes.
Either way, whenever he makes an appearance, the crowd pops in a big way. And his storytelling is some of the best in the company.
Everything he does seems legitimate and believable. And that’s why he will always be a draw as long as he is in WWE.
