Brock Lesnar is no doubt a monster in the ring, but many of his fans feel like he isn’t given the chance to show his full potential or power.

Lesnar has defeated some big name WWE stars, including the Undertaker earlier this year. Rumors of his return are swirling and are likely true.

The question isn’t a matter of if Lesnar will return to WWE, but when and what is the plan for him?

Lesnar’s success in the ring was often ignored by Vince McMahon and while many fans believe he deserved more big matches, he rarely got them.

Now that John Cena is busy filming his latest movies, the WWE has had to make some changes to their shows to accommodate his schedule. This has left some room for a backup wrestler, and rumor has it that backup may be Brock Lesnar.

Whether Brock will be brought in to “replace” Cena during his absences or to wrestle him for the title is still up for debate, but many people believe Lesnar’s return has something to do with John Cena.

John Cena winning the title wasn’t exactly what the WWE had planned. To fix things, they put Cena in a fatal four way match at Battleground which Hunter termed as plan A.

Hunter also had a plan B in case Cena came out of Battleground as champion and since Seth Rollins is so close to the Authority, he was considered as the plan B of the Authority now that he has a contract.

However, the latest rumors suggest that Hunter’s backup plan is none other than Brock Lesnar, who is scheduled to face Cena at SummerSlam. Lesnar aligning with the Authority is supposed to give him more heat than he already has and Rollins cashing in the contract might be put on hold until Lesnar returns.

Right now, Brock Lesnar’s future success may be hanging on a rumor and depending on John Cena’s plans. The fact that he has been considered for such a match is good news for him.

Regardless of whether he gets to headline Battleground 2014 or if he returns afterwards to take on Cena, there may be more opportunities coming his way and he may finally get the recognition that his fans believe he deserves.

    Part of the reason that Lesnar is not a headliner is because he is so big and powerful that he is one of those wrestlers who crosses the line. A lot of that has to do with when he crossed over into UFC where they fight for real. Coming back to WWE he gets carried away and really does hurts guys, especially what he did to Triple H. He is not well liked by the WWE roster and he is kind of mediocre with the fan base..

      What did he do to Triple H? Not a damn thing in reality, except make him some money. Lesnar has always been a little stiff in the ring, but not so much so that the WWE has ever worried about him hurting other wrestlers, the main issue on why Lesnar hasn’t been used more is due to his part time contract, which limits the dates he will work over the period of a year, which is why he hasn’t been around, the WWE has been banking those appearances to use at a later date when he is more needed, like now with Daniel Bryan being out, CM Punk still being MIA. well not really MIA, they do know where he is, but he ain’t coming back no mo no mo no mo, he hit the road Jack and that’s just how it is. Brock will be only used on TV and PPV (WWE Network Specials) and most of the time Paul Heyman can just make an appearance for his “Client” and get the point across without the WWE having to use any of his limited dates.

    It’s no longer a question of if Lesnar is returning, which by the way he never actually left, it’s how soon does the WWE put the title on him, and from the looks at the leaked promos for SummerSlam it would appear that is the when here. Now the bigger question on fans minds is how long the Beast Incarnate will hold onto the gold, and sources close to the company have said that current plans are for Lesnar to defend the belt against Roman Reigns at WrestleMania 31, which we’ll call plan A., and transfer the title to him.
    Of course all that is subject to change when and if Daniel Bryan can return, and if the YES movement still has legs to run on, if not then plan A. here would seem to be the future of our WWE Championship.
    I for one am more interested in seeing how the Beast will be aligned, will he be a member of the Authority and possibly Evolution, which would be huge when Batista returns, imagine those two with the World Tag Team and World Titles, who’s gonna try and stop them? Or if Brock will remain a Paul Heyman guy, and where would that leave Cesaro? A lot of questions about how storylines will be written, but one thing is clear, Brock Lesnar is going to be the WWE World Heavyweight Champion at the end of SummerSlam, if not before then.

    “John Cena winning the title isn’t exactly what the WWE had planned.”

    You make it sound as if this is REAL and not a shoot. Of course they had it planned. Nobody wins ANYTHING unless it’s in the script. Otherwise the belt would be on whoever else the WWE wanted it to be on. Of course, if they ultimately want it on Lesnar, the couldn’t very well have given it to him at Money in the Bank, seeing as he wasn’t there. Cena is a great caretaker of the belt until they figure out exactly what the program is going to be thru Wrestlemania XXXI. Cena has two movies lined up, so he’ll inevitably need to drop the belt soon.

    Brock Lesnar not getting title shots is 100% due to fact Lesnar on purpose signed a contract to not wrestle that often and get paid ALOT, PERIOD, if he wanted to be a FULL time wrestler they would put the belt on him

    did anyone see Wes Hand (Hawkeyes) throw lessnar all over the mat in the NCAA
    (were in it for the money) finals. The only reason lessnar won was because he won the coin toss in overtime and got an escape.
