I'm over Brock Lesnar being champ

I try to keep my blog posts positive and this one will be for the most part as I explain in my 1-2-3 cents why it's time for Brock Lesnar to no longer be the WWE Universal Champion. He, of course, is defending the Championship against Samoa Joe Sunday night at the Great Balls of Fire event.

Not only has Brock not defended the title since winning it at WrestleMania 33 on April 2, but the champ hasn't even wrestled in that time. I understand Brock is an attraction and a part-time performer. So that is reason number one why I'm over Brock being champ.

Up next, since learning Lesnar was suspended from UFC for what are essentially Wellness Policy violations, but WWE doesn't or won't test part-time performers is strike two for me. I've written about this before. It sets a horrible example to make exceptions for anyone who is under a talent contract for the company. I know it's a business. WWE is cashing in on Lesnar's fame. That doesn't mean I have to agree with or like that decision.

And strike three, it's time for something fresh and new at the top. It doesn't have to be Samoa Joe, but of everyone on the current roster, Joe poses the biggest threat to beat a monster like Brock. Lesnar can still be a part of WWE and do attraction matches on the big four shows. Bring him in for a star-studded Raw event a few times a year. But there's no reason in 2017 for Brock Lesnar to be the program's top champion. Perhaps a screw over by Paul Heyman and the creation of a new Heyman Guy to keep Paul on TV regularly would be good.

Here are my quick picks for the rest of Great Balls of Fire (remember these are who I think will win and not who I want to win):

Despite the above blog, Brock will likely still retain the title.

Roman Reigns will beat Braun Strauman.

The Miz will retain the IC title against Dean Ambrose.

Alexa Bliss will retain the Raw Women's title against Sasha Banks (PLEASE)

Sheamus & Cesaro will keep the tag team titles against the Hardys.

Bray Wyatt will beat Seth Rollins

Big Cass will destroy Enzo.

Neville will leave with the Cruiserweight Championship against Akira Tozawa.

My predictions have no title changes happening, unless what I want to happen in the main event. None the less, this card is pretty impressive. The name though, well we'll save that discussion for another time.
