Have Reigns win through a Heyman screw job, turn him heel, having him on TV weekly and use Heyman to cover his weaknesses and emphasise his strengths, kayfabe reason for Brock to be away for a bit, bring him back to do a face run to chase down those who betrayed him. All belts on the shows, new faces in the ME.
Have Reigns become an "asset" of the Authority, put Rollins nose out of joint as he's discarded for his former Shield brother, do a face turn and a cash in at some point, perhaps even at MITB itself, you can have Ambrose run at Reigns too then.
Yeah I can't see Brock Lesnar negotiating a new contract the week of the event and him not winning it. I like what was previously suggested of bryan and cena carrying the shows whilst Brock is away. It'll be like the old days where Bruno would hold the strap for years and only defend it a handful of times a year.
Indeed. There is absolutely no need for him to be on Raw squashing the likes of The Miz, or being in daft tag matches. What makes him good is his rarity.
To face Brock should be something in itself that gives a rub. He should be unbeatable for years to come, they'll waste a lot of his prestige if he loses to Reigns by them forcing a guy who's not ready down everyone's throat. That'll hurt Brock and Reigns.
