This is for a variety of reasons.
The phenom has been a part of the WWE programming for almost a quarter of a century now, and he has a wrestling career which is even greater than the age of most of the WWE viewers! On top of this, WWE now has stiff competition to face on both Monday and Thursday nights, with big new programs coming back for the Fall.
A promo was run for Brock Lesnar’s “Go To Hell Tour”.
After the way Brock Lesnar vs. The Undertaker ended at WWE SummerSlam, it seemed inevitable that the two behemoths would be meeting one more time to complete their trilogy of contests and for the rubber match in the series. Then he’ll sit down one-on-one with Steve Austin on the Stone Cold Podcast on October 19 immediately after Raw. The first, which we found out about a few weeks ago, is Brock facing The Big Show at the Madison Square Garden show on October 3rd. The referee, however, did not see the tap, and commanded the match to continue, giving The Deadman an opportunity to deliver a low blow and apply the Hell’s Gate, causing Lesnar to Submission out. They are normally guaranteed ratings. So much so Chairman Vince McMahon is reportedly considering more TV time for Triple H and Brock Lesnar. Triple H may also wrestle soon to help drive ratings up. Now with Lesnar back in the fold, only time will tell whether Triple H will get rid of that suit and embrace his Cerebral Assasin avatar to confront Seth Rollins. Another match between the two WWE superstars is likely out of the question. While that very well could be an issue, Rollins’ supporters believe he is simply being overexposed.
