Triple H's Agenda in Keeping Brock Lesnar Strong

It's become apparent that Vince McMahon could care less about putting Brock Lesnar over and would book any of "his guys" over the former UFC heavyweight champion just for a buyrate. However, Triple H disagrees and made sure he went under to Brock at SummerSlam so his future matches wouldn't be pointless and somewhat made up for the loss to John Cena at Extreme Rules. While some may point to the latter and say Hunter is more "in touch" with today's business, I'm assured he has his own agenda.

As I reported here on Premium, Hunter would prefer Lesnar putting over Sheamus at Wrestlemania XXIX. I'm told this is because of Triple H's friendship with Sheamus and not only that he sees Sheamus as "the future" but he wants him to get the big payday.

I'm told one top WWE star feels like if they are going to bring in part-time talent just to pop a show's buyrate they should do The Rock vs. Brock [at Wrestlemania] that way none of "their guys" have to do a job and both get on the show. This is something Vince isn't completely opposed too as one source says it goes right along with his short-term thinking. McMahon has been increasingly focused on the short-term and not near as worried about the long-term future.

From the Top Rope

In other news, I'm told Ryback remains atop Vince's list of stars he's high-up on and the WWE boss continues to go back and forth on the tag division.
