Brock Lesnar
There are those backstage in WWE that feel that the booking for Brock Lesnar and Undertaker was not done properly over the last few weeks, as the former UFC champion has not been made to look like much of a threat to end the streak at Wrestlemania 30. Vince McMahon had to be convinced to allow Lesnar to look strong against Undertaker on Monday Night Raw this week.

Since he only works a limited amount of dates per year for the company, WWE is very selective when it comes to choosing who Brock Lesnar works with. Management has kept him only involved with main event performers. Sheamus has publicly stated that he would like to be one of the guys to work against the former UFC champion next.

"I don't know if anybody will ever accomplish what he's accomplished in the heavyweight division in that short amount of time.

What he did was epic and historic." - Rock discusses what Brock Lesnar did in UFC
