Brock Lesnar won the men's Money in the Bank ladder match last week, and he's teased Universal Champion Seth Rollins and WWE Champion Kofi Kingston about a possible cash-in.
Both Rollins and Kingston responded by welcoming and daring Lesnar to cash in for a title match against them. It remains to be seen when that will happen, but for now, you know The Beast Incarnate will continue to tease the two champions leading up to his cash-in.
WWE's way of planning all of this out isn't sitting well with a former SmackDown commentator. On The Taz Show (h/t WrestlingInc.com), Taz explained what he doesn't like about the current booking of Lesnar and the two champions:
"I don't like how the two Champions were subservient to Lesnar. Paul (Heyman) even said 'You guys are fighting to get your hands on Lesnar and he's the challenger'. The two Champions are jockeying to get their hands on Lesnar. I feel the head Champion is just that - The Champ.
Those guys need to be head and shoulders. They should never come across on TV in their characters to come across as subservient to anybody. For me, the overview of having both champions subservient to anyone, I don't think is a good move."
Taz also explained that when he was the ECW Champion, he was a "serious" and "all business" character. He said other legends like Hulk Hogan, Ric Flair, The Rock and 'Stone Cold' Steve Austin "had the right feel...always in the right light."
Kingston is set to defend his WWE Championship against Dolph Ziggler at Super ShowDown, while Rollins will take on Baron Corbin - who won a Fatal Four-Way No. 1 contender match on Monday Night Raw. It's certainly possible that Lesnar will cash in for a championship match against either Kingston or Rollins at the event on June 7.
It's safe to say that Taz isn't the only one who isn't big on WWE's booking of the whole Lesnar saga right now. Many fans and pundits were frustrated about him winning the men's Money in the Bank ladder match, winning it as a last-minute entry while the other seven superstars took all the bumps. WWE has come under a lot of criticism for giving Lesnar all the perks, but it's clear they don't intend on stopping.
What This Means
Lesnar has already endured two lengthy reigns with the Universal Championship, but perhaps WWE will help push Rollins or Kingston more by having one of them successfully defend against him. Otherwise, giving Lesnar another major title run promises to lead to more backlash and frustration from the many long disgruntled fans.
