Paul Heyman: 'Brock Lesnar is going to kick John Cena's ass all over Monday Night RAW'

Paul Heyman is one of the best promos of all-time.  And sometime, he doesn't even need to speak to remind you of that.

Such is the case with a quick blog entry the advocate fired off on his web site early this morning hyping tonight's episode of WWE Raw.

LADIES AND GENTELMEN MY NAME IS PAUL HEYMAN, and I offer you greetings from 40,000 feet. As I embark on this journey to the wretched State of Louisiana, I find myself repulsed by the notion that John Cena has yet to realize there is no shame in being a strong, clear cut, number two... when number one is my client, the reigning defending undisputed Heavyweight Champion of the World Brock Lesnar!

Last week on WWE Monday Night RAW, I OFFERED JOHN CENA THE BEST ADVICE HE EVER RECIEVED IN HIS ENTIRE LIFE! Unfortunately, John Cena is so wrapped up in this self-image of being your hero, he fool-heartedly issued a challenge for Brock Lesnar to show up tomorrow night in (of all places) Lafayette, Louisiana... live on RAW... and not for a face to face confrontation, but for a fight. Need I remind John Cena, it was in that very State of Louisiana, New Orleans to be exact, where my client Brock Lesnar Conquered The Undertaker's Undefeated Streak at Wrestlemania? Need I remind John Cena, I told everyone in advance that would happen?

Need I remind John Cena I told everyone my client would beat, victimize and conquer him at SummerSlam?

John Cena has challenged Brock Lesnar to a fight six days before their rematch for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship at Night of Champions.

It's a heroic gesture, but a stupid one at that. Brock Lesnar is going to kick John Cena's ass all over Monday Night RAW, and John Cena will not have enough time to recover to be 100% for his contractually-invoked rematch at WWE Night of Champions next Sunday.

Martyrdom does not guarantee immortality. Bluntly, it guarantees the opposite. Martyrdom only offers death. In this case, the death of John Cena's dream of proving himself anything but inferior to my client, the reigning defending WWE Heavyweight Champion of the World, Brock Lesnar!

Any chance we get some action between champ and challenger tonight?  Could an injury to Cena be the rumored angle we've been hearing about?

Tune in to find out!  Heyman surely knew this would make you want to just a little bit more when he posted it.
