Here's a crazy idea for a match at WrestleMania 29 on April 7, 2013, in New Jersey: Ryback vs. Brock Lesnar. If Booker T had his way, that's exactly what we would see.
All the latest rumors revolving around the WrestleMania 29 match card have Brock Lesnar taking on Triple H in a rematch of their SummerSlam 2012 bout. By all accounts, that seems to be the plan and has been for some time now.
But if Booker T had his way, that's not the match we would be getting.
In a recent interview with Monday Night Mayhem, Booker said he wants to see the Brockness Monster lock horns with The Ryback for a veritable HOSS FIGHT:
"The match I would want to see at WrestleMania this year would be two bulls locking horns. It would be something great for the fans, and it would be an extravaganza. It would be Ryback vs. Brock Lesnar. That would be the match for me, just because Ryback is mowing through the competition. Brock Lesnar has been a guy who has went by his 'Modus Operandi' pretty much the same way, just running through guys. To see those guys meet head-to-head at WrestleMania would be a WrestleMania where people would get their money's worth."
Though he was one hell of a worker in his earlier run with WWE from 2002-2004, I can't imagine Lesnar being able to carry Ryback to a good match at the biggest show of the year. That's not to say it's impossible but it's not something I would have any real interest in seeing.
But that's me. Any of you Cagesiders out there agree with Booker T?
