    If Brock were around more often, I’d like to see Brock and Heyman just totally start mind fucking Rollins with the cash in. Just completely break Seth mentally (as well as physically). I think there could be an interesting story of Seth being so broken that he turns to HHH as a “Hey... you’re the cerebral assassin, and even though I haven’t forgotten about our history, I need your help...”

    COACH, concerning the "living the dream" part, I think it's that wrestlers who love wrestling end up showing more passion in their performance, and that translates well to the audience.

    BUT, Brock's dominance translate well. His natural aura of being a complete a$$hole does as well. My point is that there are a lot of ways the performers can connect with the audience, and one of the currently popular ones is "living the dream".

    I think social media and message boards come into play, at least in this bubble we are in, where more devoted fans go to the big shows.. the connection people feel they have with the wrestlers is really strong and they see everything their faves post on twitter, Instagram etc..and on the flip side, they hunt down info on anyone they don’t like to expose. Things spread like wild fire.

    So people get invested with these wrestlers who seem to love it so much, and then they see a guy like Brock barely ever come to ‘work’ And then lately WWE has played that up so naturally those same people dread Brock being on the show .

    See, as a fan, I'd like to see it the other way round - I want less Brock, and less Heyman reminding us about Brock having the briefcase.

    That way the impact of him turning up to cash in is much more impactful, because we will have (slightly) forgotten about it.

    Lesnar's future given Heyman's new role... Discuss.

    It doesn't change. Heyman can still have the role as being Lesner's advocate while taking on the new creative role.

    Assuming Heyman's never a GM-like figure, of course, at which point it changes even if he does still stay as the advocate.

    Judging by how his appearance on Monday went, I don't think we'll be seeing much of Heyman outside of his advocate role.

    Brock vs Cain Velasquez in a rematch, of sorts, announced for Crown Jewel in a couple of weeks. For the newly-won WWE title.

    Which means once again WWE booked themselves into a corner. They either have to have a fuck finish (which Saudi won't care about) or have Cain lose his first match in the WWE. They definitely won't take the title off Lesner so soon again.

    You find? I think the Goldberg angle proves that WWE are willing to let Lesnar lose if the bigger story can sell. And if the rumors of a multi year deal with Cain is accurate, and with this being the title involved on the Fox program, where Cain was previously a star... I think it's entirely possible Cain wins the title.

    The problem isn't that they "booked themselves into a corner", it's that they are making the main Fox/SD title ineligible for everyone but 2 people. Cain might win the championship, but he won't be dropping it to anyone. In fact, the chances of a full time champion happening soon is better with Brock as champion.

    It's a very odd scenario. Hopefully WWE tells a good story to get us to Crown Jewel. I'm doubting it.

    Would they have him win the belt at an event like Saudi Arabia, though? I feel like they should hold off on the title switch until an actual pay-per-view.

    It is an actual PPV. The Saudi shows do great business on the Network, unfortunately. Just because the negative online fans piss and moan and claim they won't watch... most end up watching because the Saudi shows have crazy freak spectacles.

    If anything the Saudi PPVs, and Smackdown are the most likely places a title will change hands. Saudi PPVs have the broadest appeal. Casuals look to those PPVs above others. Partially because there are always a couple legends on the card, or big time gimmick matches. Don't be surprised if it ends in a DQ. Most likely Lesnar DQing himself by using a foreign object. It will show fans that Lesnar is scared of this opponent, which makes him resort to tactics he normally wouldn't. They'll run with that angle for a while to build up the feud I think. Cain needw too much work still to strap that title on him immediately, plus WWE isn't going to pay off that angle this soon.

    I think Valasquez takes the belt, to be honest. I really wouldn't be surprised to see them run a similar angle to the one Lesnar had with Goldberg previously, whereby it looks like Valasquez has his number and then they get to Mania where Brock banishes his demon or whatever.

    I'm not sure this is like Hogan getting WCW to sign Warrior just to get his win back.

    This is exactly how Vince thinks though.

    Well, if Powder tells me it's how a guy he's never met thinks, it must be true.

    Never have I ever assumed how Vince McMahon thinks.
