Brock LesnarTriple H vs. Brock Lesnar is Set for Summerslam

What I Liked:

Triple H comes out and calls out Brock. Instead, we get Paul Heyman who talks about Triple H's personal life. Once again, he pushes the limit and talks about his children. Stephanie McMahon comes out and tells him to shut up. First off, Stephanie looked absolutely incredible. I thought she did not lose a beat whatsoever when talking to the face of Heyman. I like the fact that they use her with the understanding that everyone knows she is basically second in power to her father. That gives off a more personal and realistic vibe. When they bashed Heyman's failures and faults, it pushed him over the edge. He finally accepted the match for Brock. Stephanie attacked Heyman, and was well done on both ends. When Brock came out, I loved the phsyicality of him and Triple H.Triple H seems more like a fighter than a lot of other guys Brock could face. You can look at Triple H, knowing his past, and legit feel that he could possibly hang in there with a UFC Fighter. Obviously, Lesnar could kick his backside, but he is a good underdog. When he got the better of Lesnar, I felt that it was right because Lesnar needs to show more than pure dominance. He lost to Cena, but he physically beat him down. It looked real, and when you book realistically, the fans appreciate it. This felt real.

What I Disliked:

Even though I am looking forward to Lesnar vs. Triple H, what does it really do in the long scheme of things? This is basically two part time guys who are fighting just because. I really don't think there is long term success for it, and whoever wins will not get much out of it. I would like to see a power struggle stipulation to make it more interesting. Paul Heyman gets control of a show or Triple H loses his powers, there needs to be more to draw a longer and more profitable climax.

Grade: B+
