At Extreme Rules, I saw something I didn’t want to see. Samoa Joe should not have won that Fatal Five Way. I do not want to see him face Brock Lesnar!

Not as his next opponent, anyway.

If you’re not familiar with what Samoa Joe brings to the table, if you don’t know what he’s done in his career over the past 15 years, maybe you don’t care that he’s going to be the next guy to lose to Brock Lesnar in a match for the RAW World Title, whatever it’s called.

There’s no chance Brock Lesnar is losing the belt in his next match. It didn’t matter who the opponent was, because short of getting injured somehow or getting that diverticulitis or whatever digestive system disorder he had that forced him out of MMA, the reign of Lesnar isn’t stopping before SummerSlam, at least. Unless this match that Samoa Joe gets with Brock Lesnar turns into some multiple match feud, Samoa Joe isn’t going to be the one who gets that belt when the dust settles.

It could be a great feud, too.

Samoa Joe has intensity to match Brock Lesnar. He’s good enough on the mic to stand toe to toe with The Advocate For The Beast Paul Heyman. I expect the build-up to this match to be classic. When Brock Lesnar’s not in the building, or even when Paul Heyman isn’t there either, Samoa Joe can make this match WAY more anticipated than any of the Roman Reigns vs Brock Lesnar matches they’ve had in the past. Way more anticipated than Lesnar vs Goldberg from this past WrestleMania.

And they’re gonna waste Samoa Joe as a challenger to Brock Lesnar’s championship in a match where Lesnar’s obviously going to retain.

But I guess I should just be happy that the over-weight competitor who spent way too much time in TNA Wrestling is finally being treated as one of the top competitors in the business. But I’m not, because he’s got a ticket to Suplex City, and I’m going to be sad watching the Part Time Beast dismantle the Samoan Submission Machine, when clearly Joe has what it takes to be the top guy on RAW.
