WWE has reportedly come to terms with on an agreement that will allow the company to book him as frequently as they want – for a price.

Previously, Lesnar was committed to work a select number of appearances and WWE would have to map out the storylines and dates to work around Lesnar’s schedule. WWE is now able to book Lesnar for shows and pay-per-views whenever they want to use him, on a a pro-rate basis, according to the Wrestling Observer Newsletter.

Lesnar will defend the WWE World Heavyweight Championship against on September 21st at .

  • WCWJobber

    I really hope he doesnt wrestle on every PPV untill WM, NOC, Hell In A Cell, Survivor Series and Elimination Chamber, Lesnar got this mystique and I really hope they dont over expose him. Like now we have no idea when Lesnar is going to come back on Raw at what time or when. And thats the best part.

    • Jeff

      I agree but its funny how when Rock was champion everyone was pissing on him and saying he should be there every week when he kinda was

      • https://twitter.com/bushysowavvey Triple X

        It’s because The Rock was saying “I’ll never leave you WWE fans again” blah blah blah. He basically promised us that he’d be a regular. We knew from the start that Brock wouldn’t.

        • Jeff

          But Rock has a busy Hollywood schedule. Lesnar doesnt…

        • https://soundcloud.com/kenkenkilltit KenKen KillT iT

          Rock never promised he’d be regular. He actually said that in a promo to clarify for people. He ment he would never de-associate himself from the company like he had to in the past.

        • Marvin B.

          He meant he wouldn’t distance himself like he previously did, ppl been explaining this dude.

          • G.I.R.L.

            People don’t be lis’nen.

          • Marvin B.

            Right, folks be hearing it but don’t listen

      • pwnez

        The Rock was rarely on Raw. He didn’t even bring the WWE title with him on talk shows and whatnot; that’s what WWE expected him to do. I think he may have had the title with him once which is not a lot considering the amount of promotion he was doing at the time.

        Lesnar is doing the same thing WWE had Rock do—film pre-taped promos. That doesn’t count as being in Raw.

        • https://soundcloud.com/kenkenkilltit KenKen KillT iT

          Wasn’t Rock on Raw the whole month for his feuds? With Punk he was there every week (and on smackdown a few times), and with Cena he was there every week pretty much. The only time i think he wasn’t there was with the whole Awesome Truth feud.

          • Mr_DJ

            IIRC he was there to unveil the new belt after Royal Rumble then we didn’t see him again till EC and WM.

            I didn’t like Rock as champion because they made it obvious that Cena was going to win the title from him two months ahead of time…

        • Daniel Tilson

          The Rock had a legitimate reason for not being there every single week. He was making movies, and making a hell of a lot more money than WWE was paying him to make them.

          All Lesnar has is a desire to spend most of his time on his farm with his family. While I applaud that decision as being good for his family, as a wrestling fan, it pisses me off. It makes him seem lazy in comparison to guys like John Cena, Roman Reigns, and even guys lower on the card like Bray Wyatt and Rusev. They are there every week.

          John Cena could have taken a year off from his last big surgery. What did he do? He came back in less than half of the recommended time for recovery. Say what you will about John Cena’s in ring persona, but that’s dedication to the business. Something that Brock Lesnar has never demonstrated.

          This new deal is a step in the right direction, but it won’t last if WWE wants him to spend more time on the road than at home like everyone else.

          • brad

            Brock’s never had to much dedication he’s just a freak of nature who accomplished things very quickly and in doing so it turned him into a mega star who draws.

      • brad

        The Rock didn’t get all that much hate mainly just a couple people who whined and complained on the web, but for the most part he was heavily like and brought some incredible raitings to the shows and ppvs. I mean he brought numbers that hadn’t been seen in years.

    • pwnez

      But to many people, that’s what they dislike about having a part-timer as champion. We never knew when we would see Lesnar but now we will be able to see him more often. I don’t think he will be over-exposed.

      • bambam’s ghost

        I agree. Let him be on more often. They really have no choice with the lack of “Big” stars. It looks like the Wyatts are going backwards for some stupid reason. They need to Push Cesaro and bring up some NXT stars ASAP. They should also refocus on the tag division because it is so pathetic!!!

        • UrbanHermit

          I can see a few guys coming up after Takeover. Charlotte dropping the title to Bayley then coming up, The Ascension could do the same.

    • Y2J

      People were complaining about Lesnar not being there hardly, now they’re saying he’ll be overexposed? Come on now, this is exactly why they won’t take us seriously.

      • WCWJobber

        I never complained. Hell even Jim Ross said he shouldnt be there every week.

        • Y2J

          I wasn’t saying you in general, I agree he shouldn’t be there every week. After a while he loses his drawing power.

          • jimmy

            I complained :p but seriously lets see how he does now the he has to work week after week after week like a fighting should be doing, he didnt last long last time

      • Reality

        I’ve never complained and actually always said that it made it more special, like Rock, or Hogan back in the days.
        So yeah, did you know there were actually DIFFERENT opinions on the net? Thanks. ICW is a myth

        • Y2J

          Then you weren’t part of this conversation to begin with were you? “Gasp!”

          • G.I.R.L.

            You win. Hands down, darling. I was reading the responses and wondering “if you’re not part of the group he’s talking about, why are you responding as if you are a part of the group?”

          • Guess

            What was the point of “Come on now, this is exactly why they won’t take us seriously.” ? They never took the fans seriously to begin with.

            And oh right, I shouldn’t get involved in “private” conversation on the public comment section.

          • Y2J

            Because most fans complain for the sake of complaining & when WWE finally does cater to them, they complain some more. As for the conversation comment, that was meant as if you didn’t complain about Brock then it wasn’t directed at you. But since you tried to look like a smart @$$ and all, figured I’d clear that up for ya ;)

    • Scott Kinnard

      You really can’t have PPVs without a title match. This is why uniting the two titles was a mistake.

      • Ace

        Uniting the two belts was the best thing that ever happened. How are you going to have two “world titles” under one umbrella. One lesser title, and one major title..and they’re both “world titles”. It’s always been stupid. They got away with it since 2003 b/c most people didn’t give a $hit. It was always a stupid idea b/c the WWE title was always THE title. The belts originally were supposed to be split because they planned out a WWF brand with a WWF title, and a WCW brand with a WCW title from the alliance/invasion $hit… When that idea went bust, they split up RAW and SD and brought back the WHC instead, and kept the idea of two separate brands even though by that time it wasn’t even needed.

        Plus… they managed real well for decades with only one title. It went back to normal. One champ, one company… and two shows where everybody can appear on any show.

        • https://soundcloud.com/kenkenkilltit KenKen KillT iT

          The brand split/multiple titles made WWE alot more interesting tho.

        • Tom Wing

          The brand extension at the time was needed. With WCW/ECW went bye bye……they almost tripled their talent roster.

      • Gotstodobetter

        It wasn’t a mistake especially since it just one big show now and they are barely making any just do with the other belts they do have.

    • Ace

      If he’s the champ he’s going to be at every ppv… that’s wrestling 101.. And it looks like he’s not dropping it any time soon at all.

    • naqi

      IDK why you’d be against this, I’d love to see the Beast destroy all his opponents as much as possible until another star rises, preferably Dean Ambrose but not for a while.

  • Puppet H

    If Brock can F5 Jerry Springer next week, that’ll make me pay $9.99 for the WWWE Network. But please WWE, don’t overuse him

    • Ace

      I saw that link about Jerry Springer on here..and I just kept moving.. lol what a joke. I would love to see him get an F5

  • pwnez

    Good, they should have the right to use him anytime they feel the need to. It’s different if you’re just a part-timer working regular matches; if you are the WWE champion (which generally means you make more money) you should be available at all times.

    I don’t see Lesnar working every Raw or PPV up until WrestleMania 31 but we may see him more often.

    • Forceton Banfodder

      If they choose to let him hold the title till WM 31, then I suspect he will be at every PPV.

      • pwnez

        Honestly, I wouldn’t mind that. He can work some smaller feuds until WrestleMania 31.

        I’m waiting for people to complain that we are going to see too much of Lesnar even though before everyone was saying we would never see him. I think this is a good thing, especially since he is champion.

        • https://soundcloud.com/kenkenkilltit KenKen KillT iT

          Would be cool, but by him destroying Cena haven’t we pretty much established, he’s above everyone? No one can take the title unless its a screwjob. It will be interesting to see what they do with this deal.

          • Scott

            Roman Reigns…nothing interesting at all about it

  • Anthony

    we don’t need a Lesnar v Cena rematch -_- this is why I stopped watching Raw for a long time now

    • Adam Siegel

      If he squashes him again then it drives the point home even more.

      • Anthony

        im fine with a squash, but the thing that bugs me is Cena in everything is making me cringe. I like Cena as a person, but the way Creative handles his charachter makes his on-screen persona unlikeable, and makes other superstars look like ants

  • Tom Wing

    Now….everyone that was whiny and crying about “Part Timer”….is gonna be be whiny and crying about “Don’t Overuse Lesnar! We don’t need to see him all the time!”

    • https://soundcloud.com/kenkenkilltit KenKen KillT iT

      lol exactly.

    • UrbanHermit

      I don’t see what the big deal is about being a ‘part-timer’ anyway, it’s not like the title is being defended every week or anything.

      • Kobe’s.White.Brother

        EXACTLY

      • Rich

        I guess its been awhile since we’ve seen the title change hands on Raw much less a WWE WHC match like back in the Attitude Era. It was nice to see the title defended every once in awhile on Raw. The only real time a title may change hands is the night after Wrestlemania….

        • Chris Gaudet

          REALLY? THAT’S the only time a title may change hands? I call b.s.

          • Ben Tarr

            On Raw, yes.

          • Chris Gaudet

            Ummm… what?

            Rich – “The only real time a title may change hands is the night after Wrestlemania” – Note he said Mania, not Raw…
            Me – “Bullshit” – Title changes hands other than at Mania… not necessarily on Raw
            Ben Tarr – “On Raw, yes” – WHAT IS YOUR ARGUMENT?

            I never disagreed that the title didn’t change hands often on Raw… nor do I think that should change. I disagreed with Rich’s statement at the end of his comment… about the title changing hands only at Mania.

          • Mike Lyent.

            He was previously talking about it never changing hands at RAW, then meant to say the only RAW it has a chance of changing hands on is the one after Wrestlemania. Poorly phrased, but understandable.

        • Chris Gaudet

          REALLY? THAT’S the only time a title may change hands? I call b.s.

    • The Man From Jonestown

      I’ve never whined about part-timers, but I definitely think they need to not overuse Lesnar. I think more wrestlers should be part time. I think there should be less exposure of the product in the US in general. It would help it feel fresh and special again, and also not destroy the marriages and bodies of the talents.

      • Wrestling Fan

        Kinda like how we get one hour of NXT a week and it leaves us wanting more.

    • Patrick

      Agreed.

      There are so many whinners and complainers on here.

      How many people would love to have the kind of work schedule and pay that Lesnar has in their very own lives? They wouldn’t be complaining then!

      • Bryce

        These whiners and complainers are the ‘smarks’ of the wrestling fan base. Nobody complains more than they do.

      • shaun

        I had the same argument with someone about Brock on YouTube, I said if you could only work say 30 days a year and be paid about $12m a year you would jump at the opportunity (I read somewhere Brock is being paid $12m a year or near it).

        • Cujo999

          I’ve got no beef with Brock with getting whatever he can get. I have issue with part timers, either. However, I don’t want to see a part timer as the champ.

    • Stijnosb

      Nope, I’m gonna be whining about the budget cuts. They can start all over cutting again.

    • HollywoodJD

      No because i still expect him to be part time, wwe is too cheap to pay him… I would like to see him wrestle on raw at least, be a true champion and part of interesting story lines… How about brock and cesaro teaming up and eventually separating causing an epic feud… Or brock going against big show in a rematch in raw… I mean come on, you need an active wrestling champion

    • HollywoodJD

    • Benjamin Scott-Pye

      The reason it bothers me is because he was so incredible when he was there in the early 2000s because he worked hard, did house shows and all the tv shows and it showed in his performances. He was having amazing matches with literally everyone.

      Now he wrestles one match per month for a couple of months and then disappears for six months, and he’s out of practice, tires easily and can’t really put on a good show without someone who can cover up all his flaws.

      I hope he wrestles a bit more and he can get back in practice, but I still don’t see that happening.

    • david

      no he is still a parttimmer the wwe think’s we the fans are stupid the fans want the see the champ wrestle everynight or monday

      • Tom Wing

        Then the champ isn’t special if he wrestles every show.

        • Cujo999

          If the champ isn’t special if he wrestles on every show, then that’s a failing of the champ, not how he’s being used. Guys like Flair, Hart, HBK, Austin, Rock, Triple H, etc worked every show, and were special. Lesnar has to be used sparingly to camouflage his weaknesses.

        • david

          cm punk wrestled evernight just sayin

    • Brock rhymes with?

      I doubt it.

      Brock is an uninteresting and dull.

    • Brandin HybridWorld Goulette

      whatever. this is exactly what we need. the more he is on Raw–wrestling, the better off the WWE is. we can see some dream matches we’ll never see on PPVs like Sheamus, Cesaro, Jack Swagger, Randy Orton and some more. they would draw more people to the show every week, and would get Lesnar back in the groove, and more fluent.

  • Jeff

    Hope he wrestles on raw

  • MajorHeel

    Isn’t NOC on Sept 21st not the 17th?

  • gimmegimmekevin

    Lesnar vs Bryan for the title at WM31, book it WWE. Reigns can beat Cena in his quasi-retirement match. They did tease Cena vs Reigns heavily over the summer, might re-visit it come January. I imagine Bryan (surprise return) and Reigns will be final two in RR

    • Tom Wing

      If you hold your breathe on that….you are going to suffocate.

    • We’re Here

      If it comes down to Bryan and Reigns, then for the sake of preventing another Batista incident Bryan would have to go over. I honestly don’t want Lesnar v. Bryan because I don’t want Bryan winning that match. As great as the David v. Goliath story is I just couldn’t believe that after Brock beat Taker at WM and squashed Cena that Bryan could pose a realistic threat (I know, it’s all scripted blah blah blah, still not buying it). Although the nuclear heat Lesnar would get for beating an IWC darling would be amazing (I can hear the burial chants now). I’m not saying it should be Reigns to beat him… but this needs to handled delicately if Reigns is being handed the torch. Eliminating Bryan will only make fans turn on Reigns more. I do like the idea of Cena v. Reigns though. That’s a good high-profile match for him, it’s already been teased and it guarantees Reigns getting the face reaction.

    • The dam truth

      Again with the bs of lesnar and Bryan … Let me tell you that would be the worst opponent to put against lesnar… yea have lesnar beat the most phenomenal streak and be the terror of wwe and make him the most dominant superstar at the present time just so he can lose to some midget troll who btw does not look believable that can take him on so please stop the lesnar vs Bryan bs

  • The Man From Jonestown

    Lesnar, at this point, is the most dominant force on the roster. He has an aura of a sheer terror in the ring, just like they wanted. Don’t ruin it by having him come out and doing pointless stuff just to try and get a ratings bump. Heyman is just fine as Lesnar’s harbinger of doom, before disaster strikes at a PPV.

  • Donny Octave

    This is a good thing and a bad thing, considering how much WWE loves to feature top champions… But hey, more Brock Lesnar and Paul Heyman, means more TV Gold, so at least we get some of that. I just hope he’s not on TV every single week, because that’s what made Brock so special of a talent. You never know when he’s gonna show up, which makes him a dangerous man, you have to have eyes in the back of your head, cause ya never know when the beast will strike. I just hope they put him to some good use and not waste him.

  • Scott Kinnard

    Now I don’t have as big an issue with him being champion. It’s just hard to build a program when one of the people isn’t there. I’d like to see more interaction with Cena and Lesnar even if it’s not physical. With such a thin roster- Bryan injured, Punk gone, Orton stale, Ambrose gone, Big Show past his prime, having a part-time champion isn’t smart. Other alternative is pushing new stars. I’m curious how much this will cost the WWE

    • Adam Siegel

      The thing is I would rather have Heyman talking than a 6 man tag at the end of a show most weeks. It is so vanilla. “Everyone wants a part of the title. Lets have you all wrestle in one match instead of making 3 matches and have it be a good show.”

    • https://soundcloud.com/kenkenkilltit KenKen KillT iT

      I don’t even think the roster is thin. WWE just doesn’t believe in most of their current stars. They could easily give people pushes but instead they either focus on 1 or 2 people and everyone else is just thrown out there.

  • Ace

    For a price.. lol This guy is the man! He knows how to make that green.

  • Punk2k14

    so nothing has changed much anyway.

    They could have booked him for extra shows before for a fee, don’t expect to see him more often, if he does it will be leading up to WM

  • Steve Blackman

    Great news, this man is one of the only reasons I watch Raw every week. He should retain the title for like 10 years man, I don’t see anyone on that roster capable of beating him legitimately. Not a Super-Cena, not even a Superman (Roman Reigns).

  • Hershey Maxwell Barber

    Lesnar is raking in the cash and laughing all the way to the bank. RAW’s and PPV’s is sooooo much better than working live events too on his end.

  • raVen

    more respect to Lesnar. He didn’t have to take this deal with extra dates, altho I am positive he made sure it was worth it for him.
    It’s funny to play what if..what if Lesnar never left for the NFL/UFC, what if Lesnar spent the last 10years in WWE? certainly he would always be a top guy but would he still be as wildly popular as he is now?

  • The One, The Only, The Ellis!

    I’m not surprised to see a redneck, such as Brock Lesnar, to get a great deal, since rednecks actually have a lot of wisdom, but the liberal media only shows to uneducated rednecks to support their ignorant agenda!!!!!!!!

    • G.I.R.L.

      Brock isn’t a redneck, he’s a beast. Huge difference.

      • The One, The Only, The Ellis!

        Rednecks can be beast as well, so they’re not mutual exclusives!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Stephen

    I still think it would be best for WWE if Lesnar only appeared at PPVs. It would a) make the Network worth more, because it would be the only way to see him; and b) it would allow WWE to focus on building talent as #1 contender’s rather than a bunch of tag match main events.

  • Summer Rae Dudley

    I can finally die peacefully.

  • Plato Thelapdog

    bah gawd he’s back, and hes rippen the WWE uniVerse to shreds

  • brad

    I honestly think they are building Lesnar up to be one of the strongest looking characters in history, I mean they really want a win over him to be special which is why he destroyed Show, HHH, Cena twice, Taker and put on a good match with Punk. Point being whoever beats the man cough cough (Roman Reigns) will be put over instantly and will forever be known for that victory.

    • G.I.R.L.

      I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: it should’ve been Cesaro. :-(

      • brad

        I couldn’t argue with that Cesaro is one of the best they have.

  • insomniacreviewer

    Good for business.

  • Buzzard Follower

    The issues with a part time champ. Now wwe must pay brock even more to show up more often. I’m still mixed on brock as champ but the issue remains what does wwe do while brock is gone have cena destroy every talent he gets in a match with

  • askbillmitchell

    You can bet that for what ever premium the WWE is paying Brock, they are going to get their monies worth which means he will be shoved not only down our throats but up and through every orifice we have. BOHICA!

  • heterosexual

    $1million a night

    worth~

  • RasslinRyno

    Good. I’m glad that we’ll now see more than 1 WWE title match before Mania. That was my biggest problem with Lesnar winning it.

  • Scott

    I want to see him on Raw in a match. I don’t care who its against but i need to see him Wrestle or its all for nothing. I dont wanna see him just stand beside Heyman during a promo, i wanna see the dude wrestle and if they arent going to use Cesaro anymore at least throw Lesnar in a squash match to give everyone what they want and thats a Lesnar/Cesaro match

  • Oliver Acquart

    Wtf is that really gonna fly with lesner?

  • Whipreck

    It would be nice to see Brock show up unexpectedly, unadvertised and wreck someone. It would add the “anything can happen” Aura to Raw. As it is now he only shows up the week of the big pvp. This adhoc approach can work.

    Side note: sescoops. Cut the mobile ads. The reason we come here and not pwinsider is we dont like being ad bombed. We can go back anytime.

  • eraerbwrq

    Then it’s pretty obvious that Cena will lose again and Brock will keep the titles till Wrestlemania. He’ll probably be on every PPV till then.

  • Dante

    Lesnar is hot as heck right now. This is a great move.

  • Big Daddy Kane

    Yes the more of him the more i love to watching Raw every monday.

  • jj

    i imagine this deal would have been finalized prior to lesnar winning the title as wwe would not have given him the belt unless he could compete & do more t.v work.
    >> i want to know who is going to beat him & when will he drop the title?? it cant be cena for the 16th time? i cant see it being – bryan, shemus, batista,hhh, kane, orton etc, or even mitb winners unless a storyline it used well enough? – the undertaker @ mania next year?? > too much lesnar could do more harm than good – unless the matches are better quality then they have been…

  • Slider

    It’s great seeing Lesnar again. They should keep the title on him indefinitely. There’s really nobody else to put it on. Nobody on the roster realistically looks like they can take him at all. I don’t care for Roman Reigns. Roman Reigns has like only three big moves. He’s awful, even worse than Cena.

  • Dixie Carter

    Hopefully they keep the title on the UFC Legend and UFC icon. Be a joke if Cena comes out and gets his 5moves of doom and wins. Knowing WWE Jerry Springer could end up buying RAW and stripping Lesnar off the belt!

    • Droppo

      He definitely needs a sixth move of doom if he wants to beat Brock. Minimum of six for sure.

  • Joe Owens

    So how long till Lesnar gets pissed off, and you all know it’s coming, flips the bird, and walks away again? Anyone? Anyone?

    This s GREAT NEWS! Now Brock can be REALLY World Champion and defend every Month on PPV in the lead up to WM31! When he Beat Cena at NOC who do you all think he will face next? For the HITC PPV I wonder who that have him face on a HITC match?

  • torrens

    We don’t need to see him at all. A large part of the “entertainment of wrestling” is for the wrestler to actually have some personality. There are lots of big, muscular tough guys. Since wrestling is staged after all, personality and story lines means a lot. I have been a fan for over 50 years and follow wrestling like a true fan. When Brock appears, I grab the remote and flip to almost anything else. This guy is not the future of wrestling. He failed in pro-football. He got his “clock cleaned” in MMA and quit. Who needs him now?

    • Droppo

      By getting his clock cleaned, you must mean when he won their world title after only a few matches and then left after finding out he was ill with a sickness that weakens and tires the person out.

    We don’t need to see him at all. A large part of the “entertainment of wrestling” is for the wrestler to actually have some personality. There are lots of big, muscular tough guys. Since wrestling is staged after all, personality and story lines means a lot. I have been a fan for over 50 years and follow wrestling like a true fan. When Brock appears, I grab the remote and flip to almost anything else. This guy is not the future of wrestling. He failed in pro-football. He got his “clock cleaned” in MMA and quit. Who needs him now?

  • HollywoodJD

    He will still be a part timer trust me, hope brock loses soon

    this is the best news I’ve read in a while, I am so excited to see Lesnar hopefully at least more than what he’s been showing up past couple years.

    Does anyone else here think that Brock is totally sticking it to WWE and running this show here?! I mean, he has the belt, and now he’s like, if you want me to show up, you pay the price. What a nice gig he’s got going there. I’d do it too.

    Brock is Beast for Buisness!

    You know what? I have absolutely no hate against Lesnar, but when you think about his dominance and constant winning streaks, it drives me nuts to think that no one has never made him weak. The Man weighs a ton and works out from what I’ve seen before on TV and probably just online. Cena, you better beat his ass, you need your vitamins.

  • Dwaun Marshall

    Oh, And Please don’t take this as silly ranting. And one more thing, there’s a quite the following with Lesnar, if you listen closely I think he’s getting over, since conquering the streak and defeating Cena.

      It’s all fun and games until Bob Holly comes back to break his neck!!!!!!!!

  • Michael Torres

    All of you part-timers out be as whinny as you want to about the WWE cause no one cares at all.

  • andyman7

    i fnd it pretty sad and lame that the wwe has to resort to bringing back guys from the past era’s to make their product better…what is amazing to me is that wwe product sucks because of john cena yet they bring back these guys and there is john cena facing them…it’s not that john cena is a poor talent the problem is that the wwe can’t seem to push any other wrestler other than Cena…where is ryback?where wyatt?

    lesnar demands money for the schedule but how about bill goldberg is also asking the price for his return? why they denied bill goldberg?

  • rudy

    According to the wrestling observer. Enough said.

    The worst thing they can do is overuse Lesnar. Keeping him part time is better for business, that makes his actual matches a must see.

    Of course depends on the numbers. If they draw X amount of fans at Summerslam let’s say, and make Y amount of dollars from it, yet could potentially make more money from more pay-per-view appearances while drawing less fans at each, then they should go with that. Or make more money from Raw appearances over time by drawing slightly more fans, they should go with that. Either way, you do what makes you the most money, that’s what business is all about in the end.

    But at the same time, you don’t wear out his celebrity. You book him too often, people will get used to him. People get used to him, his matches won’t be as interesting and won’t draw as big. That’s the choice they face. Again, depends on the numbers, but if I were them, I’d keep his appearances to a minimum to build interest.

    Hell if I were them, I would seriously consider eliminating Smackdown altogether, and only have a weekly Raw show. Especially since Smackdown now has become a symbolic show, with basically the same matches as on Raw, with little effect on the actual storylines. It’s basic economics, you flood the market with something, the value drops. You make it a rare commodity, the value goes up.

    Again, depends on the numbers, and I’m sure they’ve already considered it, but didn’t want to take that gamble. If you eliminate Smackdown, you lose business, and would that business be made up from the increased interest in watching Raw, it’s a gamble. And if you do take that gamble, and it doesn’t pan out, are you supposed to just put Smackdown on again and say, well that experiment failed, you can’t do that. So, who knows.

    Either way, they have to find some way to garner peak interest for their product, especially now when interest is waning. And one thing’s for sure, you put Lesnar on a full time schedule, and interest will continue to wane. You even put him on every pay-per-view wouldn’t be a good idea. Again, depends on the numbers and if they’re willing to gamble. Let’s see what happens.

    the momentum that lesnar has been riding on since WM makes him a big deal. making him face smaller foes removes the prestige of his character. he needs to face top dogs only so if he becomes half timer who’s gonna be next to face him? we know that orton is not the one as much as we know the 2 moved guy isn’t either. he won’t wrestle the likes of wyatt or sheamus either so yeah he’s best as a part timer.
