OK so we know he's fit again as he's done house show dates, so when would you have him return?

Tonight on Raw to rush into a Mania match? At Wrestlemania as a surprise entrant into a match on the night? The night after Wrestlemania when returns and debuts tend to happen?

Goldberg/Brock aren't full time guys so i'd love for his return to happen on Sunday night in winning back the title he never lost by making it a triple threat. You could have him triple threat with Owens/Jericho because even though it's a different title he'd still get the chance to beat the guy who won the title he had to vacate.

It would make no sense to not have a super over babyface in a Wrestlemania match and so to me it looks like an interesting week for Finn.

I would have him help Gallows and Anderson walk away with the tag titles, then have them help him after he goads Lesnar into a second title match ala Hogan vs Yokozuna @ WM9 after Lesnar beats Goldberg.

Either that or wait until Monday and have him do the same old shit as always, and come out to the ring and say he's back and wants the title, and he doesn't care who has it, and Lesnar's not involved at all because he can't be bothered with showing up.

Ahem...

I'd like to say I was interested in his return, but since he didn't make a surprise return at Mania, I'm now far less optimistic that it's going to be worth watching.

Quote Meltzer also reported that Balor will be in the Universal Title picture but it will be no time soon, possibly after Brock Lesnar & Braun Strowman’s feud is over. Also, as far as championships goes, this report can also in some ways confirm what most have been predicting in Wyatt not re-gaining the WWE Championship seeing as how he is on Monday Night RAW courtesy of the “Superstar Shake-Up”.
 
That makes sense. Build him back up gradually instead of pushing him straight to the level he was at before his injury.
 
Doesn't sound too promising about getting back what he's never actually lost though.
 
It's stupid booking that he's not asked for a title shot for what he never lost through a defeat. Especially as a babyface.

He will be a heel before years end. You heard it first right here on TUP!

They need to feed Brock Lesnar to Sami Zayn, with Zayn using the "beast-mode" wrestling style Daniel Bryan was working on for his feud with Lesnar before he got injured. Just saying, when I saw Bryan showing Zayn his beast mode style he was working on for his Lesnar storyline I was marking out like crazy. It was fucking awesome. Zayn could totally do it justice like Bryan did as well, and Zayn could easily be as big of a star as Bryan was if they'd stop jobbing him out. To be fair, Zayn needs to show a lot of fire and anger when he loses going forward. The thing about Bryan was he always looked like he was robbed when he got beat, and it helped keep fans on his side even when he was jobbing.

Balor too would be a good one to see Lesnar lose to. People are in this mode of thinking that only a Strowman or a Goldberg or Reigns or the like can beat Lesnar, yet they completely forget that all of 5 ft. 8 in. of Eddie Guerrero took the title off Lesnar at WrestleMania, so seeing a smaller guy like Balor, or Zayn or certainly Daniel Bryan prior to his injuries is completely believable as the precedent has already been set.

As far as I'm concerned seeing Strowman face Lesnar and loose is a bad idea. I'd rather see him beat someone like Rollins or Reigns for the title or even lose the title to those guys, but if he is the future, then he needs to beat the fuck out of Lesnar and take the title, not make Lesnar look strong.

Don't want to nit pick but Eddie beat Lesnar at No Way Out before WM haha, but yeah I do get what you're saying, you don't need to be a beast to beat Lesnar. Lesnar was at his best during the Angle stuff way back in the day and Angle wasn't exactly a small guy, so a guy like Balor/Zayn beating Lesnar is conceivable.

Lesnar is protected now unlike back then. he had two bouts with Diverticulitis. His MMA schtick he's using now isn;t because he was in the UFC, it allows him to be very limited maneuver wise so he doesn't exert too much energy. Also being a former UFC champion, that automatically defaults him into being a dangerous guy. Booking him that way allows it for WWE to play it safe with his body. Protecting his mid section above all costs is the only reason he came back to WWE and perform.

He may be more protected due to that, however a smaller guy isn't really going to cause as much damage as a stiff hit from a big guy would do. I'd imagine someone like Balor & Zayn would be a super safe choice in a match up for Lesnar if they are protecting him in that kind of way.

Being protected doesn't mean he can't lose to a wrestler who is smaller than him though, and a smaller guy who is quite skilled in the ring is every bit as capable of working around his limitations as any bigger guy.

Besides that, Ken Shamrock and Dan Severn were little more than jobber back in the day. The change in philosophy belittles wwe wrestlers.

Plus, I'd take Severn or Shamrock in their prime over Lesner in his prime. Hell, I'd take Haku over all 3 of them at once! Lol
