#2. Signs Leading Toward Second HHH/Lesnar Match
I have tried to make sense of WWE's use of Brock Lesnar every step of the way, but it's starting to get tiresome. I'm afraid a second match between Brock Lesnar and Triple H will be where I draw the line.
Why? Because it makes no sense at all.
I understood feeding Hunter to Lesnar to attempt making up for his loss to Cena. There's more of an upside, at least short-term, with Lesnar. Hunter doesn't need the win at this point in his career. There's still money to be made with Lesnar and Taker at 'Mania next year.
For the same exact reasons, the possibility of a second match between these two interests me ZERO. Triple H still doesn't need a win, Lesnar still has a greater upside, and Lesnar is still the best candidate for Taker at Mania.
Brock will gain nothing extra by beating Hunter for a second time. Unless Hunter is coming back to work full-time, he gains nothing by winning the rematch. And dare I assume that they must have plans for a rubber match if Hunter ends up winning the second one?
There are reports that Brock might sign an extension or some kind of new contract with WWE once his current one expires around WrestleMania next year. Maybe that's the reason they are even contemplating this rematch — they think they have Brock longer than originally expected. That would at least make it more understandable.
But it doesn't change the fact that there are better options to work Lesnar.
