- Alfred Konuwa has an article at Forbes about how the inconsistencies in the Brock Lesnar - Undertaker feud have hurt the build for their match at Hell In A Cell this Sunday. It was noted that Taker had been playing more of the desperate heel during their feud this year, only for Lesnar to play the cowardly heel on last night's RAW. Here is part of what he wrote:
WWE is better served staying the course with The Undertaker as a villain. Even if some fans cheer for a heel Undertaker out of blind loyalty, the cheers will come with more emotion and passion, which is an upgrade to the confusion and apathy created by flip-flopping characters. A heel Undertaker also establishes continuity stemming from his recent actions.
With Undertaker now playing the role of the hero out of nowhere, this does not represent the end to an epic feud that changed the course of wrestling history. Instead, this match now seems like a one-off.
