You kind of already sucked the suspense out of this one, WWE

Could Brock Lesnar decide to use his Money in the Bank contract on the WWE title?

Sure could!

The way the gimmick works, the Beast could show up on SmackDown this Tuesday, F5 Kofi Kingston, then start the match and win the strap he’s held four times in the past. Heck, Kofi will probably even be on Raw Monday night in Kansas City. It could happen then!

Would make a heck of a story, too. Determined to be a fighting champion, Kofi is already showing signs of exhaustion from his 11 match win streak. And now he has to face Paul Heyman’s client?

¡Ay, caramba!

But, seeing as WWE already set up Kingston’s next feud - including a title defense against Dolph Ziggler for June 7’s Super ShowDown - and Seth Rollins used a low blow to take the Universal title from Lesnar at WrestleMania 35 & has been running around calling himself the Beastslayer ever since, and we’ve seen numerous report that Lesnar vs. Rollins is the plan for Super ShowDown, and...

Well, you get the point.

Props to WWE for trying to build suspense anyway, though! Like with this Instagram...

Or this blurb from’s preview for the Memorial Day Raw...

Brock Lesnar to announce blockbuster decision

“Beast in the Bank” Brock Lesnar has been circling Universal Champion Seth Rollins and WWE Champion Kofi Kingston like a shark, and per Paul Heyman, “The Purveyor of Paranoia” will finally reveal which World Champion he will cash in on this Monday night on Raw.

Might The Conqueror seek payback against Rollins, who defeated Lesnar for the Universal Title at WrestleMania? Or will he look to end Kingston’s 11-year WWE Championship journey in heartbreak and destruction, mere days before he is set to defend it against Dolph Ziggler at WWE Super ShowDown?

No matter what happens on May 27 in Missouri, we’ll be here to talk you through it.
