The Polling Place: Cena/Lesnar, BOLA, Wrestling Fandom

Should this showdown happen again so soon?

Welcome to the Polling Place, your favorite multiple choice-based opinion sounding board on the wrestling Internet. First up, John Cena was announced to get a rematch against Brock Lesnar at Night of Champions on Main Event this week. Obviously, the old chestnut of "rematch clause" justifies Cena getting his return bout so soon, but longtime WWE fans like myself remain scarred and skeptical that Lesnar will remain Champion after the September special event. Furthermore, many feel that regardless of clauses, Lesnar's beatdown of Cena at SummerSlam was so intensely lopsided that Cena should have been made to wait for his return match. What say you?

Next up, Pro Wrestling Guerrilla's annual Battle of Los Angeles tournament starts one week from today with 24 of the biggest names in professional wrestling descending upon Reseda to do battle in single elimination style. Despite the numerous amount of wrestlers booked, not everyone has an equal shot of winning. However, this year's tournament has more than a few viable favorites who could take the entire kit and kaboodle. Who you got winning the shindig?

Finally, everyone who reads this blog is a wrestling fan, I assume. If not, what the hell, man? Anyway, the last question is simple. When did you become a wrestling fan?
