Really looking forward to this and sincerely hope it means new champion at Wrestlemania.

Brock finally has a fresh new fued against someone he's no prior history with.

I have no issue with Brock laying him out as Drew only eliminated him from the Royal Rumble because of a low blow.

I'm also looking forward to this a lot, a fresh opponent for Brock and a dream match in terms of a good mesh of styles and Drew is someone who can match up physically to Lesnar.

These guys are two of the best when it comes to working a hard hitting physical and realistic looking style and telling a great story in the ring.

This should be the top match at Wrestlemania, I think the smart money will be on McIntyre winning the belt but its not a foregone conclusion by any means, the build to this should be great too with it being around Drew's long path to the top, expect lots of well produced video packages and sit down interviews etc.

I fully expect to Vince to change his mind on the outcome about a thousand times before WM. So I expect Dave Meltzer to issue all sorts of contradicting stories. WWE's May tour of the UK might factor into Vince's decision as well.

Good point that. The first British World Champion headlining the UK tour would be very smart business. 

Win or lose headlining Wrestlemania against Lesnar is a star making vehicle for Drew, my money is still on him winning though.

For me this is must win for drew hes red hot now os the time to pull the trigger he needs the win so badly and he has a ready made feud afterwords with Seth Rollins and the deciples afterwards. 

He also has small feuds he can do with Samoa Joe which would ve smart to do as they are guys who will literally beat the shir out of each other.

And I guess there is Bobby Lashley too.

Well this feud took an interesting turn. 

So just after Paul Heyman gave a speech about how the WrestleMania main event is a "sham" and passing off Brock's Rumble elimination at the hands of Drew as more or less a cheap shot after Ricochet low blowed Brock, painting the picture that Drew has no shot against Brock, McIntyre comes and lays out Brock twice with the Claymore Kick. Lawler said that after the second one Brock was out for at least 15 seconds. 

It was a good way to add to the suspense that Drew might do it and get the win, and also a good way to build the overall feud but I have to say Brock looked waaaay too weak. I can see Drew getting offence in but that was too far as far as Brock going down as Brock is supposed to be a monster. 

Brock had better win this thing.

The crowd rightly started off dead as the boring Paul Heyman said his same old shit we've heard a million times. But when Drew showed himself the crowd were woken up.

By laying out Brock twice within minutes it showed the first time wasn't a fluke shot.

Drew holding the title belt was probably the loudest the crowd were all night, as they want a champion who's always there.

I agree with Adders to be honest ...

Heyman is boring

Drew is super over and for me he has to take the title - there wont be a better time for him to win the belt.

They need to be careful in this build because Drew is getting too much build, too much offence, he's too cock sure - that it all screams Brock retaining at the minute. Dont get me wrong i love it when a challenger is this sort of arrogant, aggressive kind  of heelish tweener sort but when youve watched WWE for as long as what we all have, it nearly always means the champ retains.

They need to give Brock some moments in this build up instead of it all being about Drew.

But didn't Brock F5 him a while back? 

The reason why I want Brock to win is because he ended the Undertaker's streak; and anybody who beats the Undertaker at WrestleMania better be absolutely invincible in order to respect what the streak was. Yet he's already been bested by Bill Goldberg (in a squash), Roman Reigns, and Seth Rollins (clean.) He's loosing too much. If he is going to be a monster he should be a monster. He needs a big WrestleMania win to reclaim that status. He actually shouldn't be loosing to anyone. 

I would however agree that Heyman's thing on the mic is getting a little stale. It's not horrible but at the same time getting a tad old. But to be honest without having Brock actually wrestle in matches on Raw it is the best option they got; as Brock does not really have any mic skills. 

And speaking of that it would be nice to have Brock actually wrestle outside of a pay per view once in a while. I get that they need to save Brock's matches so that it seems as if it is something special, as he is obviously a massive draw. I also get the Brock just plain doesn't want to wrestle much. But it would be nice if once in a blue moon Brock actually has a match outside of a pay per view. Even Sting has a Monday Night Raw match in his resume. I believe the last time Brock did anything like this was his squash over Kofi Kingston. 

So even in the best case scenario in my eyes of Brock actually having a match outside of a pay per view once in a while, having a seg begin by having Heyman talk is still probably the best option available.   

And I see your point about Drew; but I view it more so as confidence as opposed to arrogance.

I think the booking so far has been great. 

It's getting Drew over in a big way and presenting him as a big star who can match up to Lesnar, that's a smart way to use Brock, using his credibility as a dominant and really tough to beat talent to help establish a new top guy. 

I'm sure Lesnar will get his own back on Drew as we head into Wrestlemania, I'm liking how both men are using sneak attacks to get the upper hand as it builds the anticipation for when these two square off one on one.
