So it's been announced that Bock Lesnar's Summerslam opponent for Summerslam will be revealed on this week's Smackdown broadcast (so we'll know tonight if we read the spoilers. The quesiton on everyone's lips; who will it be?
Of course, there is a possibility that Lesnar won't be able to compete at Summeerslam. With his UFC 200 match vs Mark Hunt happening just over a month prior to Summerslam, then there's the chance that Lesnar could pick up an injury that prevents him from competing. However, it is Brock Lesnar and he is a machine.
But alas, his Sumerslam opponent will be revealed tonight at the Smackdown tapings. But who will face Lesnar?
I think in fear of being upstaged by UFC, then I think we can assume that this will be a pretty big name opponent. I wouldn't expect to see Lesnar facing Kofi Kingston or Big Show as he's done on a couple of past WWE special shows. Also, this is Summerslam, WWE's second biggest ppv of the year, so that rules out all undercard wrestlers. I also don't see Lesnar facing someone he's faced before. We've seen enough of Cena vs Lesnar so I don't see it being Cena.
Matches that people have wanted to see in the past have been Lesnar vs Cesaro, Sheamus, Kevin Owens (the latter two both have said themselves that they'd like to face Lesnar). I think the 3 Shield members are also off the table as I expect the three of them to continue their feud for the world title through the summer.
Could we perhaps see The Rock vs Lesnar? Could we even see Goldberg vs Lesnar? Lesnar is on the cover of WWE 2k17 and Goldberg has been announced as a playable character and has been used in marketing for the game? Rando Orton is due back son so I guess he's an option too though I'd have a difficult time getting into that match as I'm not sure how they'd set it up.
Personally, I'd be keen to see them pit Lesnar against Cesaro or Owens. I would also be ok with them doing Lesnar vs Goldberg providing that they have Lesnar absolutely destroy him so that we don't ever have to see or hear from him again (unlikely though given that he's in WWE 2k17).
Who do you think will face Lesnar? Who would you like to see him face?
