Brock Lesnar versus WWE world champion Daniel Bryan would be box office gold



By Scott Fishman

Legendary broadcaster and WWE Hall of Fame inductee Jim Ross responded to a fan on Twitter regarding the potential of Brock Lesnar versus Daniel Bryan at SummerSlam.

Whether it's at the second biggest WWE show of the year or not, this match would be box office gold. It would also be a great challenge for the new world champion and leader of the Yes Movement.

Lesnar is coming off of breaking the greatest streak in all of sports and entertainment. If beating The Undertaker at WrestleMania doesn't guarantee you a title shot, nothing will. Bryan and Lesnar would be a classic match of David versus Goliath. The two have similar, yet diverse styles, that I think would compliment well.

Of course, the Beast is a powerhouse and would surely attempt to assert his size and weight advantage on the Beard. At the same time Bryan has met bigger and stronger opponents for most of his career. He defeated the three in the current incarnation of Evolution in Triple H, Randy Orton and Batista in one night at WrestleMania in two separate matches. Bryan has overcame constant challenges including Bray Wyatt and Kane.



The popular performer also has his own set of submission movies to combat Lesnar and his impressive mixed martial arts background. It's also been shown in the recent documentary leading up to WrestleMania that the WWE world champ has been working on his hand strikes.

Paul Heyman would no doubt be a factor in breaking down the champion verbally and trying to get inside his head. On top of that, when it comes to match time the successful manager has been known to get involved when needed. Let's not forget Cesaro is now in the Heyman Guy camp. These outside forces would give Lesnar another huge advantage over Bryan.



The former UFC and WWE champion has paved a path of destruction since returning to the company. His victims have been against fairly familiar opponents. Bryan is a different animal all together, a fresh match-up fans could sink their teeth into. This is a quality main event no matter what card it's on.



I think it's going to happen sooner than later, bringing big expectations. Given their respective histories, I'm sure Bryan and Lesnar would deliver in physicality and overall performance.
