Fantasy Booking: Brock Lesnar's WWE World Heavyweight Championship Title Reign

Posted by Anthony Mango Wednesday, October 1, 2014
Welcome to another edition of FANTASY BOOKING where we discuss what we would do if we were given the power to control what happens when it comes to WWE Creative and the planning of events.

For this entry, we will be looking at the title reign of the current WWE World Heavyweight champion, Brock Lesnar.

Reports indicate that he will be skipping the Hell in a Cell pay-per-view. Is this a good idea? Who should he feud with over the next few months? Who should he eventually drop the title to and when?

Fantasy Booking WWE shows and feuds

Here are the rules:

1) You need to justify your choices within a reasonable mindset of what WWE has in store. Just because someone is a favorite of yours does not mean WWE would be pushing them to the title in any realistic fashion.

2) You cannot include people who are not a member of the roster, whether they are retired, working for another company, or obviously deceased. This includes CM Punk. You can, however, work under the assumption that injured stars will return in time for certain events (but keep it within reason).

3) You must start with the build to Hell in a Cell and you don't have to end at any certain point.

BROCK LESNAR'S WWE TITLE REIGN

HELL IN A CELL

Capitalize on the ease of having a John Cena vs. Brock Lesnar match and keep it simple. Since the first match was booked with Lesnar dominant and the second with Cena dominant, this should be an evenly matched situation, although Lesnar should look stronger. Considering the events of Night of Champions, Lesnar cannot under any circumstances win this match through a distraction, interference, or cheating. I know WWE would want to protect Cena, but Cena doesn't need protection against someone the caliber of Lesnar. The whole point is to build Lesnar up again as the unbeatable top of the food chain to reestablish the need for someone to beat him. That way, Undertaker didn't lose in vain.

SURVIVOR SERIES

If WWE seriously wants to do Big Show vs Brock Lesnar, this is where you do it. I would much rather see Sheamus in the role (despite not being a Sheamus fan), but instead, I'll work that in elsewhere and save it for the future, as Lesnar can't run through ALL of his potential opponents over the next few months. Sheamus vs Lesnar can happen somewhere in 2015, perhaps, and even if it doesn't, oh well.

Assuming Lesnar vs Show is a lock that they want to do, I would have that not be the main event. Instead, the main event would be the Survivor Series elimination match itself, which would feature The Authority against anti-Authority people. What sucks is that two of the biggest anti-Authority guys are out of action (Reigns and Bryan), but there's nothing you can do about that. John Cena, Dean Ambrose, a babyface Bray Wyatt, and two others (perhaps Christian and Chris Jericho if he's returned by then, or maybe Cesaro's a face by then) would take on Triple H, Randy Orton, Kane, Seth Rollins, and a freshly heel Sheamus.

One way or another, WWE is screwed with Survivor Series this year, I think, and outside of changing the game too much, I can't imagine there being a decent opponent for Lesnar without rushing things.

TABLES, LADDERS, AND CHAIRS

As a result of being the sole survivor of his team, Dean Ambrose is given a shot at Lesnar's title. He comes up short in a gritty TLC match that truly showcases the hardcore nature of it. (Note: As I've stated many times in the past, I hate the TLC pay-per-view and the idea that it's considered different than a ladder match even though it's the same thing. If I had complete control, I'd get rid of this event and replace it with a King of the Ring tournament, but that's a different story for a different article).

ROYAL RUMBLE

Assuming he is able to come back in time, Ryback is the challenger for Brock Lesnar. Everyone knows that Lesnar won't drop it at the Royal Rumble, so why not try to make something out of Ryback again by building him up as a potential threat here? Unrealistically, if Batista is willing to return, he would be the best option. If not either of those, then give the spot to Mark Henry, so Lesnar looks strong beating the World's Strongest Man.

Roman Reigns wins the Royal Rumble. Brock Lesnar defeats whomever his opponent is.

ELIMINATION CHAMBER

Brock Lesnar retains in the Elimination Chamber match, which features John Cena amongst others. For an added bonus, have Lesnar enter #3 and take out the first two to look strong, then take out Cena as his final opponent at the end to retain, meaning Lesnar eliminated all but one participant (because that one participant is to make you think that someone else has a chance in the match).

WRESTLEMANIA XXXI

While the undercard is filled with matches featuring the talents of John Cena, Daniel Bryan, Seth Rollins, Cesaro, Dean Ambrose, Dolph Ziggler, and so forth (as well as hopefully Sting vs Undertaker), the main event of the night will be a standard match where Roman Reigns cleanly defeats Brock Lesnar for the title.
