– Following this week’s major events at TLC: Tables, Ladders and Chairs and Raw, WWE higher-ups have begun making preliminary plans for WrestleMania 32 on April 3, 2016 at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas. With Brock Lesnar slotted to be a featured attraction at the event, who will his opponent be?
As of this week, Lesnar was penciled in to face Bray Wyatt at WrestleMania 32.
For some fans, Lesnar vs. Wyatt is a dream match, especially since “The Beast Incarnate” has yet to cross paths with The Wyatt Family. Here is a fan’s perspective on how this intriguing match-up could play out.
This program is not only fresh simply because of the competitors, but in the dynamic of how Wyatt has been booked. Instead of Wyatt instigating a fight and cutting formulaic promos building to an eventual pay-per-view showdown, he would be on defense. He would be the target, and his adversary would be the one initiating the program. Wyatt’s biggest rivalries (Kane, Cena, Dean Ambrose, Undertaker, Roman Reigns) have all commenced in the exact same fashion. It’s time to shake it up a bit.
In Lesnar’s case, taking on such a unique opponent in such a unique context would be a drastic change from the typical drive for competition and accolades that has been thematic in his return to WWE. He’s simply never faced a force quite like the Wyatts.
As weird as it sounds, the four members of The Wyatt Family are menacing enough to provide a legitimate threat. Having Lesnar destroy Strowman would be a huge moment considering the depths to which the WWE has gone to protect his credibility.
Besides, can you imagine the promos between Wyatt and Paul Heyman? There’s money to be made here.
