My Weekly Wrestling Column: Why WWE needs heel characters like Brock Lesnar

Brock Lesnar’s warm  welcome from many screaming fans in a hot Miami Florida crowd, the day after WrestleMania 28 was a very short lived warm welcome.

The former Undisputed UFC Champion and mega heel in the WWE Universe made it clear that he’s not here for entertainment.  He’s not here for the fans, either.   Than why would Lesnar, who once won the Undisputed WWE Title back in 2002, inside the demonic structure that is Hell In A Cell vs. the Undertaker?

Lesnar, who seems to be in this business, for more of the athletic point of view, as oppose to the entertainment, has made his presence felt everywhere he has been on WWE Television, despite not being on WWE Programming Television since the RAW after SummerSlam.

— Lesnar, who made no mistake showing us that he was indeed a mega-heel by immediately attacking the face of the company, in John Cena, who he F5’ed, and before F5’ing him, the former MMA super-star, and “Wrassler” punched Cena in the face, making him bleed.     — Some argue that’s what started his mega-heel turn.  — Than again, didn’t he leave the company previously a heel, when he feuded with Eddie Guerrero, and than Bill Goldberg?

It may have just been one of those major “Mark Out Moments” for all those Pro-Wrestling fans.

While Brock Lesnar may not be in the business for attention from the fans, or even for the entertainment aspect,  WWE needs heel characters like him, who make the show so entertaining, which it’s ironic, because that’s exactly what he’s not in WWE for.
