Three days after Brock Lesnar defeated John Cena in overwhelming fashion at WWE SummerSlam for the WWE World Heavyweight title, the fascination over Lesnar’s victory remains at a high point.

Prior to the match between Lesnar and Cena this past Sunday, the fight was hyped as possibly being the match of the year. The match of the year because many expected Lesnar and Cena to have a brutal back and forth with Lesnar eventually coming out as the victor.

The match between Lesnar and Cena is still arguably the match of the year as of this writing. Though, the reasoning for that designation is not what many thought at first. The reason why the match between Lesnar and Cena was perfect is because the story was told brilliantly by both characters.

After all, that is the reason why WWE opted to have Lesnar dominate Cena.

According to NoDQ, the match was constructed the way it was in order put both Lesnar and Cena over.

The idea behind Brock Lesnar destroying John Cena for the WWE World Heavyweight Title at SummerSlam was to put Lesnar the monster over as strong as possible and to make him break away from the pack.

They also wanted to get Cena over for not giving up in a situation as brutal as that, and for taking the beating.

Brilliant.

The consensus feeling of many while watching the Lesnar and Cena match on Sunday was sickening. Lesnar destroyed Cena in a way that was almost uncomfortable to watch. But, that was the goal. Lesnar had to be built up as the unstoppable monster that presumably dominates the WWE roster until Wrestlemania 31. At that point, as currently planned, Roman Reigns will be put over as being the one to slay the monster.

As for Cena’s character getting over for not giving up, that seemingly has been what WWE has done over the past 10 years. The problem that many have with Cena’s character is that he often is put in situations where he seems likely to take a loss but miraculously recovers and gains the victory.

So the whole “not giving up” factor is something the fans already hate about Cena.

But, those fans will be pleased.

Cena will return to WWE programming next Monday on Raw and presumably cut a promo on how he will redeem himself at Night of Champions in his rematch against Lesnar.

While Cena likely will put up a better contest against Lesnar at Night of Champions, the Beast Incarnate is not dropping the title a month into his reign. Therefore, that creates the opportunity for WWE to take Cena’s character to lengths that they have yet to explore during the march towards Wrestlemania 31.

That would be why the story that was told between Lesnar and Cena this past Sunday was quite the accomplishment for WWE.
