Brock's future in the WWE will be Rock solid

By TIM BAINES -- Ottawa Sun

 Brock Lesnar is not only The Next Big Thing, he's The Current Big Thing. And he's WWE's new heavyweight champion.

 Lesnar pulverized The Rock with his devastating F-5 finishing move in the main event at Summer Slam last Sunday.

 It was predictable The Rock would drop the gold, with filming on his new movie Helldorado scheduled to begin this month.

 But what was not so predictable, and perhaps puzzling, was the treatment given to The Rock by fans at the pay-per-view spectacular.

 Chants of "Let's Go, Lesnar" were loud and The Rock was roundly booed after the match, leaving him apparently upset.

 Lesnar is the youngest heavyweight champion in WWE history and he appears to have a bright future ahead of him.

  • The Undertaker defected to Smackdown! and won a match to determine the No. 1 contender for Lesnar's title. You can bet Triple H will have something to say about that tomorrow on RAW.

  • Kane is back, with a new mask and some slick moves. Returning to help out Booker T and Goldust, he unveiled The Kane-erooni, his version of Booker T's electrifying spin. Kane was pulled off the Smackdown! roster and added to RAW.

  • While accepting a lifetime achievement award on RAW, Jimmy "Superfly" Snuka was attacked by Eric Bischoff's henchman The Island Boyz in a Three Minute Special. Still in the ring when the next segment began, Snuka was attacked by Chris Jericho, who asked: "When did they change the name of Madison Square Garden to Madison Square Has-Been?"

  • Tickets have gone on sale for the Oct. 14 RAW in Montreal.
