WWE Summerslam is Just 2 Days away and WWE Universe is Really Exicited to see it as It being headlined by one of greatest main Event for WWE Universal Championship in a Fatal-4-Way that could be won by any man in the match.
That being said, it seems that the WWE is already prepared for their next PPV main event to make it more awesome One.
Not only does Summerslam’s Fatal-4-Way have star power, it’s full of unpredictability. Lately, rumors began circulating that Brock Lesnar would be leaving WWE to return to the UFC after he was called out by Jon “Bones” Jones.
Jones recently beat Daniel Cormier to regain his Light Heavyweight Championship at UFC 214. After knocking Cormier at in the third round, Jones would call out the “Beast Incarnate” Brock Lesnar.
In a year where a handful of super-fights have already gone down, and one of the biggest possible money makers is set to take place this month in Mayweather vs McGregor, it seems that UFC and Brock Lesnar want to cash in on this moment.
Lesnar recently said in an interview when responding to a question about Jones, “Be careful what you wish for, kid.” With a statement like that, this is not a matter of “if” but rather “when.”
Lesnar and Heyman have been milking this for all it’s worth, with Heyman saying that Angle is trying to screw Lesnar out of his title at Summerslam, and if he loses his belt, he’ll leave WWE.
Don’t look for a title change this Sunday, at least not when it comes to the Universal Title. Per Dave Meltzer on the August 15th edition of Wrestling Observer Radio, WWE Creative already knows what direction they’re heading on their way to No Mercy in September.
WWE plans to have Lesnar retain at Summerslam, and defend the Universal Title against Braun Strowman at No Mercy on September 24th.
With Braun Strowman being the next contender for Lesnar’s title, it’s more than likely that Braun will have an incredibly strong showing at Summerslam. Odds are he won’t be eating the pin.
WWE has been high on Strowman since his repackaging last year, especially since he began his program with Roman Reigns. Their heated, heavy hitting rivalry has been well received by critics and fans alike, so it would make sense for WWE to cash in on that while they can.
The date for Brock’s date is, at this point, unknown. He still has yet to re-enter the USADA drug testing pool, which means the suspension he was under last year is still halted.
So whenever Brock decides to jump back into the MMA world, he still has half a year or so to wait before he can step in the octagon again.
However, it’s all but confirmed that Lesnar will at least take time off to take on Jon Jones for a fight sometime in the near future. With Jones returning and looking dominant in his fight against Cormier, the 30-year-old is ready to prove he’s the most dangerous striker in the UFC.
Knocking off Lesnar, someone many fans consider a UFC titan, would do wonders for the Champion. However, he would have to go up a weight class, as it’s doubtful that Brock Lesnar would lose that much weight.
