Realistically, the most likely next step for Brock Lesnar is going to be a suspension of some sort. Don’t worry though: this time it’ll only be for storyline purposes in response to his F5 on Shane.

Pulling Lesnar from WWE programming would be something of a triple-whammy, as it manages to satisfy multiple needs.

First off, it’s a readymade excuse with which they can write him off TV—something that’s pretty much a necessity given the limited dates he’s contracted to. Secondly, having to suspend Lesnar perpetuates this idea that he’s once again this unstoppable monster, so much so that they can’t risk allowing him back into the arena for fear of him beating up another non-wrestler.

And finally, they’ve almost built Lesnar up to be such a force that there isn’t really all that much left for him to achieve. WWE Champion? Check. Undertaker’s Streak? Check. John Cena, Randy Orton, and just about any of the company’s other top names? Check, check, and a resounding check.

So a suspension would appear to be the likeliest option, if only for its great convenience. Luckily though, there are still a small handful of alternatives…
