Brock Lesnar vs Shane McMahon Storyline to Continue, Current Backlash Card

– Rumors have begun to circulate regarding a possible Shane McMahon vs Brock Lesnar match down the line, as Lesnar hit the SmackDown Live Commissioner with an F5 at SummerSlam this past Sunday. McMahon noted on yesterday’s SmackDown that the issues between he and Lesnar were not yet over.

WWE Title Match

    Agreed. Shane has already stated that he would get back in the ring if the right situation presented itself. I think if the match does happen it would be at Survivor Series or Royal Rumble most likely. With Shane’s Muay Thai training I think a good “gimmick” match would be to bring back the ‘Lion’s Den’ match and have Shane fight Lesnar in the cage and possibly have Ken Shamrock return as the special referee. Why I say that is because Shamrock is a playable character in WWE 2K16 which leads into my next point.

    I also agree that a Bill Goldberg HOF induction is coming as it fits the recent patterns of guys who have been gone from wrestling for awhile first come back in a DVD and/or video game, then the WWE HOF follows i.e. Bret, Savage, Warrior, Jake, Sting, etc.

    It seems like Goldberg is next. Shamrock is a stretch though as last I heard WWE has not contacted him on anything, but they can’t just use his likeness in a game without his permission so he had to have had some contact with them.

    Another possibility of a special referee with Shane/Brock could be Kurt Angle. He has history with both Brock and Shane.

    Next year’s HOF class could have Goldberg, Angle, Shamrock, and Bischoff. Safe to say any name on the concussion lawsuit list won’t be going in. 🙂

    Finally a cool looking graphic again.

    Or maybe Shane has Goldberg cone up and face Brock for him. Like he says he can’t because he’s the Comish or because the Board won’t let him. Kinda like Vince having people set in for him. Well see but I’d love Brock v Bill one last time and this time with a better finish.

    Shane doesn’t plan on wrestling anytime soon. So don’t expect him getting into the ring again. Not to mention it wouldn’t even make sense for them to have a match at all.

    It would be to set up a Goldberg match. Goldberg would come out to ruin it for Brock the way Stone Cold attacked HHH years ago, allowing Vince to become WWF champion. Or like how Goldberg messed up Brock’s match with Eddie in San Francisco. Looks like maybe a HOF induction for Bill and a match against Brock at Mania.

    Nobody wants to see that! Lesnar destroys guys like Cena,Orton & Undertaker but Shane can step in the ring with him? I like Shane but come on!
