    It's Hunter, isn't it?


Probably Kane ... yes it can get worse

What about (now hear me out, because I know this sounds crazy) Rollins/Cena for the title at Summerslam? It's a big match, which fits with the big show feel they're trying to give this year's edition. It's a proven matchup, since they tore it up at the Rumble. (You could argue that Cena's gotten even better since then.)

Then, if you have Rollins win clean (or semi-clean), you could do wonders for his title reign's legitimacy. You don't even have to take the US Title off Cena. (Though you could, to set up the feud with Seth.)

If we're to assume Lesnar vs. Taker at Summerslam, I'd prefer Cena vs. Rollins to the other possibilities out there. It would go a long way in creating an explanation for Cena's win over Kevin Owens yesterday in that they wanted him to have momentum going into a WWE World Title match. Presumably Lesnar will get a rematch with Rollins sooner rather than later, so Summerslam would be a short-term Cena vs. Rollins feud. I'm not sure what the story would be though given that Cena has really been dedicated to the U.S. Title.

I like it better than Rollins vs. Triple H (which, at this point, would feel forced and really should have more build-up than a few weeks) or Rollins vs. Taker vs. Lesnar.

I don't have the Network but I was following along on Twitter.

I'm sorry WWE but not even The Undertaker can get me to care about another crappy Brock Lesnar match.

If you don't have the Network I think you've proven that WWE can't get you to care about ANYTHING.

Well, I HAVE the Network and not even Brock Lesnar can get me to care about another crappy Undertaker match.

Maybe he'll get his win back at SummerSlam by jumping Brock during his entrance and kicking him in the balls a couple hundred times. And then everyone will cheer because Taker's the obvious face here. /sarcasm

Eh, I wouldn't say that. I love NXT and love watching the archives, I just can't justify another monthly subscription right now.

If Undertaker ends up being the one to get the rub from Brock Lesnar defeating the streak, then the company really is beyond hope. The only way I could possibly have any interest in Undertaker vs Lesnar is if it's revealed that Undertaker didn't have a concussion, Heyman actually drugged his prunes. The decision is retroactively thrown out as a result and Undertaker is now 23-0. Actually, even at that point I wouldn't have any interest in 'Taker vs Lesnar, because neither of them is capable of putting on an interesting match anymore.

Kevin Owens should steal Chris Jericho's gimmick from Wrestlemania XXV and go after legends who are past their prime. Feed him Taker, Lesnar, and Jericho and let him eat them so they never pollute the airwaves again.

    My impression is Ric Flair actually won a lot in the 70s and 80s and the memory of those wins is what allowed him to coast thru the 90s with a lot weaker wins. But I wasn't around in those days and haven't gone back to look so many someone needs to shoot me down.

    (Also, Seth Rollins is not Ric Flair and is doomed if he has to be Ric Flair.)


I think pretty much every time Flair won the title prior to it becoming the WCW title in 1991 he got a clean win regardless of if he was a face or a heel. Defending the title was another story though, since it was common for the NWA champ to keep the title via DQ, CO, Draw or something that made the challenger look strong but the kept the belt on the champ. I don't think Vince has ever really had a chicken heel like that so it really stands out with Rollins.
