It was a shame we didn't get to see Braun come out and get in the face of his opponent.

I would be all for a title change. Beating Brock one on one is a much better way to make a new champion look strong, than in a multi person match.

They were very physical at Summerslam, so I have a lot of hope these two will deliver at No Mercy.

It's a good feud and Braun is a 2017 success story in that he's been built up to the point of being over strong and a credible headlining talent.

Physically he's one of the few who can actually dominate Lesnar so it will be interesting to see how the match is booked. My gut feeling is Brock goes over as Strowman constantly getting the upper hand is probably all part of the build to where Lesnar finally topples the big man.

I'm looking forward to the match but my only concern is that it will be another rushed 5-8 minute match as that seems to be the norm for Brock's singles matches now, not sure if it's because he lacks the stamina to work longer or if it's to protect him from injury, it's possible it's a financial move as well as I remember reading Lesnar gets paid more for lengthy matches.

When time was running out on the Network I knew it was going to be a poor excuse for a title match.

I don't like that Brock is still allowed to keep his matches far too short for a title holding headliner and it sucks Braun who's supposedly a bad ass can be beaten clean in about ten minutes at most.

The end result was clean and quick and that convincing that there can't really have a rematch because it was booked so one sided like Strowman doesn't belong in the ring with Lesnar.

As critical of Lesnar as I tend to be I must admit I'm warming to his matches. The bright side is that they're always hard hitting as soon as the bell rings, and while most matches I would want to see a slower build towards the end, there is definitely something to be said about seeing Lesnar hit one of his biggest signature moves immediately.

To compliment that style of match from Lesnar, it is equally nice to see the other guys he is in the ring with also elevate their game to that same level. After seeing Samoa Joe and Braun Strowman both have such brutal matches with Lesnar, he has done the job that he as champion is supposed to do, elevate his opponents in loss. Lesnar is still the chosen one, ok whatever, but Joe and Strowman look like monsters at a whole other level from the rest of the WWE save for Reigns, which also works as he was in the fatal fourway. Much the same can also be said of Bill Goldberg as well.

I'm ok with Lesnar's matches being short, they still give me everything I'd want to see from the match and eliminate all the crap that Lesnar can't do well nor would I want to see from him. Just go straight for the throat and get it over with. Maybe it's just a "get your shit in" and get out approach but I kinda like it.

Don't get me wrong, I still dislike much of everything about Brock Lesnar, but I've learned a new appreciation from him ever since he took ok Bill Goldberg and lost in less than a minute and a half. Basically everything he has done since has been pretty good and best of all unique to the WWE.

Yeah like Rico I enjoy Lesnar's matches, the hard hitting realistic style of them is far preferable to me than a 30 minute spot-fest of two guys trying to out do each other with acrobatic over the top stuff and not selling anything.

Yes Brock's matches are short and could maybe do with being a fraction longer so fans don't feel short changed but the style of these matches doesn't warrant a long length, it's more a case of blast each other with hard hitting power moves and painful submission holds until the other can't take anymore, like in MMA these kind of matches can often be very short and I think that's all become part of Lesnar's character.

I enjoyed Strowman vs Brock, the only complaint I have is the weak finish, Braun hit at least three powerslams on Brock to which he kicked out of all but Lesnar was able to despatch Braun with one F5 and a poorly executed one at that. It would have been better booking to have Lesnar maybe hit up to three F5's on Strowman to put him down for a three count to emphasis the brutality of the match and to put over how tough a opponent Braun was. As it ended it felt Brock won relatively easily despite Braun looking dominant in all the build up.

Quote With Brock Lesnar beating Roman Reigns again, the thought seems to be that a decision may have been made where Braun Strowman is going to be the one to beat Lesnar for the WWE Universal title, as speculated on the latest Wrestling Observer Radio.
 
Should be good. Lesnar won't mind losing to Braun to help make him, like others made him in the early noughties.
 
Brock loves facing big guys who he can have physical but short matches with. So once again Braun fits the bill.
 
If it happens E would get the huge babyface pop they wanted Reigns to have.

Love the idea of Strowman being the one to beat Lesnar - falls right into his Monster Among Men gimmick and personally Braun is one of my current fave's within WWE so theres that side of it too

Hes super over and can be another dominant champion that is around every week

Very wise move if this is true. Few people want the predictable scenario of Roman Reigns being the one to topple Lesnar, but Strowman is now super over and a realistic worthy successor to take the title from Brock. This also protects Lesnar who can go down fighting against a guy who has been dominant since he split from the Wyatts. 

Hopefully they will now name Braun as the next challenger to Brock as a reward for his win at The Greatest Royal Rumble.

I think he should be the guy, but I don't think they should pull the trigger until Summerslam at this point. It should have been done at mania, but to do it now seems... kind of anticlimactic.
