Brock Lesnar was the name on everyone's lips after he took on The Undertaker and defeated him earlier this year, breaking a long streak of wins and prompting controversy after it was rumored that the veteran wrestler suffered a real concussion during the match. Since then, his name has been batted around as a "plan B" should John Cena come out the victor at WWE Battleground 2014, rather than Seth Rollins.
According to Sportskeeda, it's a major rumor floating around that the Authority has a backup plan for everything:
"John Cena winning the title wasn’t clearly what the Authority had in their mind. And to make matters right, they put Cena in a fatal four way match at Battleground which Hunter termed as plan A. He also revealed that he 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 in his hands. 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 'til Lesnar returns back to hibernation."
Lesnar is expected to appear at SummerSlam and Night of Champions, and there is also talk of him showing up at Royal Rumble and Wrestlemania 31, but those dates have not been confirmed.
