Is WWE Making a Mistake Having a Third Lesnar vs. Triple H Match?

A challenge was thrown down by Paul Heyman and Brock Lesnar on Raw. They want Triple H to face Lesnar one more time inside a steel cage.

If there is one thing we know about WWE, it's that their Superstars do not throw down a challenge like that unless the other person is going to accept it.

But, is WWE wasting both Brock and Triple H by having them face each other for a third time? We saw them at SummerSlam. We saw them at WrestleMania. Do we really need to see them again at Extreme Rules?

Both Lesnar and Triple H qualify as part-time wrestlers, and while having a match between the two mega-stars is sure to draw a crowd, they could be used in other ways that would draw crowds just as effectively, if not more so.

There are plenty of other Superstars that could be used to feud with either Lesnar or Triple H, and a lot of them would benefit from a win a lot more than Lesnar or Trips.

The roster is filled with current and former champions who would benefit greatly from a program with either man.

CM Punk and Lesnar have never crossed paths inside the ring, which would make for a very interesting program, especially given Paul Heyman's involvement with both men. Punk likes to use some MMA-inspired moves, so having a match with a bonified former UFC champion would be a great feud.

There are about a dozen former WWE and World champions on the roster who are not injured at the moment, and then you have to add John Cena and Dolph Ziggler to the list of possible opponents for Lesnar and Triple H, as well.

While some of these Superstars might not be in the running for a major feud with a part-time Superstar, there are certainly a number of viable candidates.

Ryback is also someone who could possibly challenge Lesnar at some point. Lesnar signed a two-year deal with WWE. That gives Ryback plenty of time to keep getting better until he deserves that kind of feud.

Few could challenge Lesnar in the power department and still be quick on their feet. Ryback is one of them.

Triple H vs. Lesnar III will sell some tickets and PPV buys. There is no denying that this match has its appeal to some WWE fans. They are tied 1-1. This is the final match between them, hopefully, to settle the score.

Triple H got his WrestleMania moment. The smart thing to do would be to have Lesnar go over Triple H, if only so he looks strong going into his next feud.

Lesnar has had exactly three matches in WWE, and he has lost two of them. He needs the win more than Triple H does.

So, are they being wasted in a third match? It depends on who you ask. The stereotypical smark would say this match is a huge waste of time, but my seven-year-old nephew would disagree.

WWE will always cater to the fans who spend the most money, or in the case of children, their parent's money, and that is why we are getting this match.

What do you think? Is it a waste of time to have a third match between them when this will only be Lesnar's fourth match since returning, or will it be their best match yet?
