Houston, August 19 2012-Tonight the World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) pay-per-view event, Summer Slam, is guaranteed to entertain and mesmerize audiences worldwide. Many non-wrestling fans will be tuning into this event because of the main event, Brock Lesnar vs. Triple H. This is the second match for Lesnar since he returned to the WWE last March when he faced John Cena (for those that doubt the impact of wrestling I urge you to watch that match).
Brock Lesnar is synonymous with ratings and controversy. The two highest PPV buys ever for the UFC was thanks to Brock Lesnar ($1,600,000 and $1,160,000). When Lesnar returned to the WWE their ratings automatically jumped up for that Monday Night Raw. Whether people love Lesnar or hate him, they watch him.
MMA and wrestling fans are excited about this Sunday, because Triple H and Brock Lesnar have never faced off before. As a former MMA competitor and professional wrestler, this match is a fantasy match come true for me. Both men have huge credentials; Brock Lesnar is a former NCAA Wrestling Champion, Big Ten Conference Champion, three time WWE Champion, IWGP Heavyweight Champion, and UFC Heavyweight Champion to just name a few.
Triple H is a former eight time WWE Champion, five time World Heavyweight Champion, two time European Champion, five time Intercontinental Champion, amongst many other titles. In addition to the anticipation and their accolades, these beasts are known to work very tight or stiff in the ring; both men have said that this Sunday will not be a wrestling match, but a fight.
