Re: Do you think Brock Lesnar is still being booked as this unbeatable force just because of the Roman Reigns experiment?
But that's how wrestling works.
They have always built up unstoppable guys to put over the next big guy. They either do it on a small level, like they do with the likes of Rusev, Khali, Kozlov etc. or they do it on a bigger level like they do with Kane or as this thread states, Lesnar.
I have ZERO doubt in my mind that when they had Lesnar go over Taker at WM30 that the whole point was for Lesnar to put over the next big guy at the following Wrestlemania before his contract ended. Obviously circumstances changed, they decided to continue booking Lesnar like an absolute monster, had him DESTROY Cena at Summerslam etc. and then he signed his new deal. They figured they could probably have Lesnar look EVEN stronger, beat Taker AGAIN etc. obviously he got his loss on the way as a way of showing that he CAN be beaten but then he's got that win back anyway. Within that time, they've clearly established Reigns as the next top guy and everything Lesnar has done since they established that, has been a way of making him look so strong that the next guy who beats him is going to ultimately cement themselves.
Reigns beating Lesnar means he would have beaten the guy who ended The Undertaker's streak, destroyed John Cena, ended Goldberg's career etc. - it would also likely be Lesnar's last WWE match as I believe his contract ends next year so they would basically have Reigns be the guy who ended Taker's career, end Lesnar's career by beating the guy who ended Goldberg's career. I mean is there really anything else Reigns could do?
Of course, ultimately destroy John Cena at Wrestlemania in a real "passing of the torch"
Then what they'll do is just book Reigns as they have booked Cena, until the next guy comes along.
