Best/Worst: Brock Lesnar Vs. Seth Rollins, If You Remove The Authority
From The Authority’s perspective, assuming Triple H isn’t trying to murder his eldest son to spend time with his new son Kevin Owens, the Seth Rollins/Brock Lesnar story doesn’t make any sense. They (meaning Corporate Kane specifically, under the orders of The Authority) set up Rollins to be Mr. Money in the Bank, a position that by definition makes you the most undeserved, opportunistic title contender on the show, heel or face. Unless you’re Rob Van Dam and you nobly cash-in for a future date, the entire point is that you’re a jerk who’s gonna “steal” the title at the easiest moment. The Authority remains iffy around Brock because they’re evil co-horts but Brock and HHH have a longstanding beef, so they use Brock to smear John Cena — their most troublesome, omnipresent and judgmental foe — on the concrete. With him out of the way, they set up Rollins for a WrestleMania main-event cash-in, pulled the trigger and suspended Brock for flipping out when he was denied a rematch. So now Cena’s “gone,” Brock’s gone and Rollins is essentially unchallenged. The Authority has the situation they’ve been hypothetically building to since their inception.
