WWE.com asks, what if Brock Lesnar defeats John Cena at Extreme Rules?

What will happen if Brock Lesnar wins?

The answer to that question isn’t quite as cut-and-dry as it was just last week, when Lesnar’s Extreme Rules Match against John Cena was a matter of pride. Those are high enough stakes in and of itself in the dog-eat-dog world of WWE, but it’s safe to say that things are no longer quite so straightforward. Seven days later, and now Lesnar vs. Cena has become something much, much more. (PREVIEW: CENA VS. LESNAR)

Raw and SmackDown General Manager John Laurinaitis made a bid for “legitimacy” in bringing Lesnar back to WWE, and it’s easy to imagine that the GM thought he was simply bringing in a fighter when he roped Lesnar back to the squared circle. He wanted a pure athlete who could thrill the WWE Universe and put an end to John Cena’s boobirds by supplanting him as the face of the company (People Power!). But that’s a steep challenge for even the most talented of athletes, and after the events of this past Monday’s Raw SuperShow, it’s becoming clear that it carries an appropriately steep price.
