Sami Zayn's recent heel character is a representation of the "online" fans who are unhappy with the product. A couple of weeks ago, he was thrown in the trash. Many moons ago, Lance Storm was the surrogate for the fans who wanted more wrestling in their wrestling. He cut a pro-wrestling (pro-pro-wrestling?) promo, and was promptly beaten up.

Last night, fuck you Sami Zayn fans, here's everyone favorite Brock Lesnar.

Also, sucks to be Braun Strowman.

Bringing back Brock as an answer to the tanking ratings just goes to show how out of touch Vince is.  I understand he doesn't know where else to turn since he has zero star power at present, and he doesn't have the ability to create new stars anymore.

But Sami Zayn as a representative for the Internet fans is strange.  He's not exactly in the IWC's top 10.

I was pretty surprised last night when my son told me Brock returned.

Has Brock realized his MMA days are over and is becoming more interested in fake fighting for real money?

I may tune back in (quit watching about a month ago) if Brock is back, I have to admit. Brock makes me want to watch. Even as a part-timer, him being the man makes the shows and PPV's more interesting..

I think winning MIB is just setting up Brock vs Seth at the WWE SUPERSHOWDOWN. Since that is rumored match.

Dana White already said talks with Brock were dead, so yes, he no longer has that to fall back on.  He's getting way too old and has gotten his ass kicked way too much for MMA.

Watching live, I thought it was a good finish if taken strictly in the context of the match and story. However, going back to Brock Lesnar as the smugly smiling and scowling part time champ while Paul Heyman cuts weeks of lengthy insider laden promos with the matches themselves as Brock killing guys who only get a comeback when Brock slips on a banana peel is long past the point of being entertaining and is not the direction the promotion needs to take. The WWE needs to make some new stars first and foremost while telling new stories instead of stuff we've seen too much of in the past twenty years.

There's absolutely nowhere else to go with this, and the days of Lesnar's rare matches feeling important are 2 years in the past.  He's either a champion who never appears, or he chases and loses which is not a role suited for him.  It's Lesnar's fault for mostly refusing to do ANYTHING at all in his matches, especially with smaller guys.  The Rollins WM match was just thrown out there first to get it over with because Lesnar has no intention of working.  Certainly there can't be interest in a rematch.  Daniel Bryan is really the only guy who got a little something out of Lesnar this last run, but even that was hardly a classic.

Aj styles also, finn balor also, CM Punk also , his first wrestlemania match with Roman was also amazing and the Seth Rollins finish was  and his squash of John Cena was amazing. 
Like i understand Brock isn't booked correctly and the lack of the champion not being there makes for them to be scrambling making booking decisions that don't make sense but that is on WWE. 
Also the money in the bank concept is stupid if you are a supposed face and cash in at a random time  because it looks like a chickenshit way to win a title .. Bayley looked like a heel last night winning the title from Charlotte basically doing the same thing Charlotte did to Becky

I'm talking about during his comeback.  CM Punk?  Hell Lesnar had tons of great matches with lots of guys if you want to go back to the early 2000s.

If only WWE put as much effort into their angles as they do in trying to work their wrestlers and the dirt sheets.

PWInsider:

A scene at the end of last night's WWE Money in the Bank pay-per-view, Brock Lesnar arrived to enter himself in the men's Money in the Bank ladder match towards the end of the bout and ended up capturing the Money in the Bank briefcase.

WWE went to extreme measures to hide Lesnar's involvement in the match. We are told that none of the competitors in the match were aware that Brock was there and would be involved. We are told that competitors were told there would be a spot at the end where Ali would be standing on the top of the ladder and be tipped over but was not told who would be coming out to do the spot.

We have also heard from some in the company who were told yesterday over the course of the day that Ali would be winning the match, so the company was doing everything that they could to obscure the fact that Lesnar was going to arrive.
Lesnar was never seen yesterday until he entered the gorilla position. There were some in the company who suspected he might have been there but were unable to confirm it.
