Wrestlemania 34 is less than 6 months away with Survivor Series and Royal Rumble just around the corner. I do believe that the goal is to have Brock Lesnar in the main event at Wrestlemania 34 with the title in hand. I also believe he aims to lose that title on April 8, 2018 as well. Just not to the usual suspects (Reigns, Strowman, Joe).
I think at one point, Reigns would have taken out the beast Lesnar. I mean, he’s on this track of winning all the time at Wrestlemania and even took out the one guy who had the streak. That streak was handed down not to Lesnar, but to Reigns. I do think Reigns has the potential to be “that guy”, but it’s still to early.
Lesnar is not the Lesnar he used to be. The beast used be a pro-wrestler of the greatest sort. His matches were definitely fun and full of action, storytelling, and actual in-ring technique. That’s not the case anymore. Lesnar now has three gimmicks.
1) Suplex 2) Fight MMA style 3) Fake injury to rest only to come back in final moments in match
He sells tickets still on the hope he just full on flips the MMA switch and doesn’t stop. We kinda witnessed that with Randy Orton. It’s a tired gimmick match set and we’ve seen all the big guys take him on, only to lose.
Enter The Miz.
The Miz is the perfect person to take out Brock. No, not on sheer physical strength, but by brains, will, and the Miztourage.
The Miz is currently on top of the world right now. Well, on top of the state, because he’s the IC champion, and perhaps the best IC champion ever. He’s over with the crowd, even with his amazing heel status and knows how to work the mic, the crowd, and locker room.
The Miz is basically The Rock without the people’s elbow.
There might be a hint of Lesnar and Miz at Survivor Series, but it won’t play out in full until Royal Rumble, where Miz will win the Rumble in the most nefarious way, leaving the WWE Universe stunned.
Even Brock Lesnar, who will think the future match at WM34 will be a joke.
Brock won’t know what’s coming.
Leading up to WM34, there will be a storyline where Miz will alienate his whole Miztourage, even his wife, leaving him alone and reliving an old storyline of he’s got “nothing to lose” now and so he’s not going to be the safe wrestler anymore.
You’ll see him get crazy hardcore on television in a few stunts, leading up to WM34, which will build the hype for the match and give Lesnar and Heyman second thoughts.
Wrestlemania 34 is here and it’s Lesnar vs The Miz in the ring for the title. This doesn’t last the usual Lesnar 5 minutes – no. Miz is smarter than that. He makes Brock chase him through the arena, making him tired with some good spots in between.
Sure Miz goes to suplex city and Lesnar gets a taste of the vintage Mizard of Oz, but both wrestlers are still fighting. It’s a good back and forth for a while with almost certain finishes , but the count goes only to two.
That is until the Miztourage appears from outta nowhere and somehow helps Miz win the title. That’s right. It’s a cheat win at Wrestlemania and Miz and his Miztourage were always secretly friends, but wanted to throw everyone off.
Everyone is stunned and even Triple H, Stephanie, and Vince himself come out on Raw the next night to address the situation with Miz and his entourage in the ring celebrating.
After some harsh words and even a threat of taking back the coveted title due to a cheating win, The Miz goes full Stone-Cold and delivers his finish to everyone in the ring.
