Backstage News On World Title Storyline, Brock Lesnar-WM29
– Despite WWE changing their stance on the “YES!” chants and Daniel Bryan’s popularity continuing, the plan as of this past week was still for the Bryan vs. Sheamus feud to end at Extreme Rules and for Alberto Del Rio to step up and feud with Sheamus. Extreme Rules will be interesting as Bryan likely will be cheered big time by the Chicago fans.
– We noted before that The Rock vs. Brock Lesnar or John Cena is penciled in for the WrestleMania 29 main event with Lesnar being the most likely opponent, depending on how his current run goes between now and late 2012. There has been debate over who would be Lesnar’s perfect WrestleMania opponent as Steve Austin and The Undertaker would also fit.
As previously reported, the idea of Lesnar vs. Randy Orton main eventing this year’s SummerSlam pay-per-view was thrown around this past week.
