John Cena vs Brock Lesnar

I could not wait to watch Monday Night RAW this week due to Brock Lesnar's return at the end of last week's show.

Well, so far this is delivering. John Laurinaitis makes a very interesting statement saying that Lesnar is going to bring "legitimacy" back to the WWE as well as calling Lesnar "The New Face of the WWE." Laurinaitis asks Brock to come out but Cena is out before Lesnar can say much. This may sound like the standard RAW template, but things escalated quickly in a good way. John Cena gets in the ring and says, "I meant to thank you for last week" and open-hand slaps "The Next Big Thing" in his face. Lesnar goes for the takedown, they exchange blows and we are off and running.

What really ramped things up was the pull apart brawl they did from that point. It made for a great scene especially when you see Cena's bloody mouth.

Absolutely incredible open to RAW.

Also, the John Cena vs Brock Lesnar match has already been set for WWE Extreme Rules.
