Brock Lesnar, Triple HBROCK LESNAR/TRIPLE H – ONE STEP UP

WWE certainly knows how to get the most out of Brock Lesnar when they have him. And that's important considering how little they do.

Credit has to be given to him as well. He's simply a physical phenomenon to start with, but his intensity and emotions take him to an even higher level of BEAST. It's real. Believable. It's incredible to watch.

I was looking for something great between these two. They delivered Monday. And then some.  

Paul Heyman and Stephanie McMahon are not to be forgotten either. Both of them added a ton to the segment and took it from good to great.

It was not only my favorite part of Raw 1,000, but it made their match at SummerSlam must-see television. And I wasn't sure that was possible before this past Monday.
