Brock Lesnar: Why Brock Lesnar won’t cash in on Rollins this Monday and why this whole deal with him post Money in the Bank makes no sense at all.
Paul Heyman, the advocate of Brock Lesnar has announced that the Beast Incarnate will cash in his money in the bank contract this coming Monday on Raw. Lesnar will cash in the contract against Seth Rollins. However, the suspense of when exactly remains. Heyman says that Lesnar at any given time between 8 p.m. and 11 p.m. ET.

The announcement came after Stephanie McMahon made public the McMahon family’s decision of punishing Lesnar for disrespecting the contract. She said that there would be an executive review to determine the Beast’s punishment.

Stephanie McMahon- Brock Party Pooper
Brock Lesnar in all probability is not going to cash in his contract. Will discuss the why in a second. Let’s first point out all the things that don’t make sense in this oddball of a storyline.
First off Brock Lesnar should have never won the contract. The Beast could have easily gone through another superstar in a no.1 contenders match for the title.
Second, Brock claims not to know that the contract was valid for a year. The revelation came while he stood opposite the man who cashed in his money in the bank contract against him at the Main Event of Wrestlemania 31. Surely Brock must have noticed the method employed by Seth to insert himself in that match.
Stephanie’s condemnation of Lesnar for not outright stating against who and when he will cash in sticks out like a sore thumb considering the surprise of the cash in is one of, if not the main perk of winning the Briefcase; after earning the shot at becoming world champion of course. Also, the fact that the WWE have a shirt up on their website with Brock Party written over it just makes Stephanie look all the more hypocritical.
Fans see through WWE’s Parlor Tricks!
This is most definitely an act to help ratings on Raw, especially the dreaded 3rd hour of Raw. The Raw after Money in the Bank saw an increase in viewership including the third hour. The numbers fell the week later when fans began to see through WWE’s little games to get the viewers to stay. Keeping the cash-in suspense alive is what they believe the answer to the problem. Therefore, they’re bringing the Beast back to Raw, with an unnecessarily convoluted plot.
Seth Rollins is set to defend his Universal Championship against Baron Corbin at the Super Showdown. If Lesnar wins there is no way he will face Corbin. Lesnar prefers to work with Top guys, Corbin is not one of them.
It is interesting to note that Should the match take place, the match will he Lesnar’s first match on Monday Night Raw since June 22, 2002 and his first match on weekly television since March 6, 2004 on SmackDown. All the more reason to believe that Lesnar will not cash in on free television.
Lesnar was given the contract because of WWE’s faith in him as a champion and a Top draw. The WWE must have surely planned his cash in already; possibly one at a big event where they’ll have a lot of eyes (Super Showdown Wink Wink).
Therefore, the most possible outcome on Monday is an interference before the match even begins. Maybe the McMahons; Stephanie did reveal her desire to address the situation. Or perhaps by one of Rollin’s allies that sets up a match between them for Super Showdown. The Beast has been advertised for the Saudi Arabia but has no match on the card at the moment. This could be one way to get him into the card.
