Brock Lesnar dominated the ring once more, defeating Randy Orton at a WWE event in Chicago, Saturday. This marks Lesnar’s second consecutive win against Orton, who was demolished during their last meeting at SummerSlam.

Saturday night’s match seemed to indicate a different outcome though, at the onset, as Orton came out with guns blazing, charging at Lesnar with a steel chair. An F5 attempt by the Beast Incarnate was turned against him as Orton countered it an RKO onto his would-be weapon. The tables were turned, again, as Lesnar was eventually able to carry out an F5 which led to a loss for Orton in six-minutes.

Despite making quick work of Orton, Lesnar unleashed three more German suplexes on the wrestler before exiting from the arena.

This marks Lesnar’s return to WWE television since he was last seen at his SummerSlam victory, which could (hopefully) mean that fans may get to see more of the former UFC heavyweight champ. And what better way to see more of Brock then to put him against another WWE superstar, the Rock.

Brock Lesnar vs. the Rock at WrestleMania?

Ever since 2014, reports have indicated that the WWE has been trying to book a rematch between the two wrestling titans. After WrestleMania 29, where Lesnar was crushed by Triple H and the Rock lost the WWE championship to John Cena, there were plans that the Beast would attack the People’s Champ to create a feud that would lead up to WrestleMania 30.

Unfortunately, this plan never came to fruition as the Rock never set foot in the ring (again) and Lesnar just did what Brock Lesnar does.

But now, with rumors of the Rock’s return and with Brock running out of wrestlers to destroy, new speculation about their rematch is beginning to make its rounds in the internet, again. According to Four3Four, sources have “reported that WWE officials still want The Rock vs Brock Lesnar to happen again,” which may have wrestling fans riled up.

Though there is still no official confirmation for what could be a pay-per-view record breaking WWE event, it will not hurt for fans to dream up this match (unless they’re inside the ring).
