If we get the sort of performances out of Lesnar between now and WrestleMania next year in singles programs against, possibly, Strowman, Cena, Reigns, Balor, maybe another run with Joe and a few others from Raw, then I could see him being a legit contender. Otherwise, I just can't view a guy as being the top wrestler in the game when he wrestles 3 or 4 times a year and the matches are pretty much crapfests like we saw with Goldberg.
He had a great program with Goldberg and their SSeries match was more shocking and memorable than 90% of the matches of 2016. They told a great story, built it to Mania and then went hell bent for leather. Most fun 10 minutes of the show.
Great story, great blowoff.
He had the match with Orton and it was memorable for him basically killing Randall so ye his 'performance' again remember that word, has been great. He 'performed' really well and really doesn't need to have long matches Ala Balls of Fire and SSlam when a great story is told, he solidifies his gimmick and becomes more of a draw.
Monkeys at PWI can't stop jacking off about their darlings.
