Like a House Afire: Why Kofi Kingston vs. Brock Lesnar is the greatest thing

Welcome to another episode of Like a House Afire, a weekly-ish video-cast that runs down some hot topics in the world of pro wrestling with opinion and analysis from yours truly.

Trying to find some fresh angles on repeated themes, I touch on the announcement that we're getting a house show from Japan on WWE Network next month, why Brock Lesnar might be facing Kofi Kingston and how it's a great selling point for the special. Then, some rambling about what makes the current Kevin Owens vs. John Cena feud so compelling - other than the two talents involved - and how WWE can use that formula to get more stories over in the future.

Here's some background on the buzz that drove this episode:

Initial announcement from NXT about WWE Tokyo show

Card for WWE Tokyo show on the Network

kmtierney's FanPost on the storytelling involved in Owens vs. Cena
