Wrestling fans are buzzing today after leaked information from World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) revealed that the marquee match at WrestleMania 31 in March will see Brock Lesnar defend his one-match “streak” against popular internet feline Grumpy Cat.
Lesnar has seemed impossible to dethrone as WWE Champion in recent months — partly because nobody knows where he is most of the time — but the impending showdown against Grumpy Cat may be the toughest challenge of his career.
Grumpy Cat, a perpetually perturbed pussycat who rose to worldwide notoriety as an internet meme in 2012, will guest-host an upcoming episode of Monday Night Raw, at which time she is expected to officially challenge Lesnar to the WrestleMania showdown.
Though Grumpy Cat has limited in-ring experience (just a brief stint as TNA World Champion), many wrestling experts predict that she will accomplish what The Undertaker could not –a clean pinfall victory against Lesnar on the so-called Grandest Stage of Them All.
“Grumpy Cat has an unorthodox arsenal of claws, teeth, and extreme grumpiness, and Brock won’t know how to compete against that,” predicts longtime wrestling and MMA journalist Dave Metzler.
“Plus, Brock is deathly allergic to cats.”
Lesnar, of course, has a distinct size advantage, weighing in at 286 pounds of solid muscle, compared to Grumpy Cat’s weight of 14 pounds of fur and Kibbles ‘N Bits.
Asked whether she was worried about facing such a larger foe, Grumpy Cat merely frowned and said: “NO.”
