Brock Lesnar addresses his Night of Champions rematch against John Cena

When Brock entered WWE, he brought with him a championship amateur career and an overwhelming physique. The impressive combination caused many to believe they were looking for "The Next Big Thing." Over the course of his WWE career, Lesnar proved those predictions to be correct.

Under the tutelage of Paul Heyman, Lesnar made an immediate impact upon his 2002 debut. A mere three months into his career, he defeated Rob Van Dam to win the prestigious King of the Ring tournamnet. Two months after that, he beat The Rock for the WWE Championship. In short, Lesnar accomplished more in half a year than most Superstars do during an entire career.

Over the next two years, Lesnar continues to shine, especially against Undertaker. At No Mercy 2002, he defeated the "Deadman" inside the demonic Hell in a Cell. At the following year's event, Lesnar beat Undertaker in a Biker Chain Match. He even last eliminated the "Deadman" to win the 2003 Royal Rumble. With his victory in the Rumble, Lesnar earned the opportunity to challenge Kurt Angle for the WWE Championship at WrestleMania XIX.

With visions of making it big in the NFL, Lesnar left WWE in 2004. While fans never saw him on the gridiron, he soon announced he was starting a career in mixed martial arts. Before illness derailed his career, fans were treated to a taste of his past in October 2010, when Brock engaged in a chilling staredown with the Undertaker after a bout.

On April 2, 2012, Brock made a shocking return the night after WrestleMania XXVIII and attacked John Cena.

Why Brock Lesnar May Lose The WWE World Heavyweight Title At Night of Champions

Brock Lesnar vs. John Cena
Brock Lesnar and John Cena face off this Sunday

After losing the WWE World Heavyweight Championship in a brutal beatdown at the hands of Brock Lesnar at SummerSlam, John Cena invoked his automatic rematch clause and will get his chance at a 16th World Title this Sunday at Night of Champions. With his dominance over Cena in the match, he was pegged as holding the WWE World Heavyweight Championship through Wrestlemania 31, but there are a few people in WWE who aren't keen on that direction.

Those concerned don't believe Lesnar appearing as WWE World Heavyweight Champion on a part-time basis is working out too well and point to the company already having to add extra dates to his contract at a premium price in order to keep him on television. Plus, WWE doesn't have any worthy opponents for him to feud with after his program with Cena ends.

Some people in WWE feel it would be best for Cena to defeat Lesnar at Night of Champions, with Seth Rollins immediately cashing in his Money in the Bank briefcase. That scenario has been met with criticism, with those opposed believing it would be a huge mistake to take the title off Lesnar so quickly after creating their first legitimate monster in several years.

That all said, there is still, apparently, a plan in place for Lesnar to defend the WWE World Heavyweight Championship at WrestleMania 31, likely losing it to Roman Reigns in a passing of the torch moment. That would be even if Cena wins Sunday night.

Continuing on this track, it appears as though the decision in the Lesnar-Cena match will affect other WWE Superstars. If Lesnar wins, the rumored program with Big Show would move forward. If Cena wins, Show would move on to a program with Bray Wyatt while Mark Henry continues his angle with Rusev.
