At WWE SummerSlam, Randy Orton will battle Brock Lesnar in a match that is a booking nightmare, and here's why Orton should emerge victorious. - From Forbes
But Lesnar should not beat Orton at SummerSlam, and it has nothing to do with how much money he’s making and everything to do with how little he seems to care about WWE these days.
Lesnar is all about the Benjamins, and his lack of excitement over being a pro wrestler has shown in his lackluster recent work, which was recently criticized by WWE Champion Dean Ambrose, who blasted Lesnar’s effort at WrestleMania 32 in an appearance on The Stone Cold Podcast (h/t Fox Sports): Artistically, Brock didn’t want to do anything, if we’re going to be perfectly honest.
His matches at Roadblock and Fastlane left more than a lot to be desired, with Lesnar relying heavily on a barrage of German suplexes rather than putting together an actual story.
According to the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, “Lesnar’s contract is unique as there are provisions regarding what he can and can’t be disciplined for,” which is essentially WWE’s way of admitting that he can do virtually whatever he wants without fear of repercussions.
