Brock Lesnar Confirmed for WWE SummerSlam Match

Brock Lesnar Confirmed for WWE SummerSlam Match

Well, it appears as if the fans finally know when he will wrestle next and it is going to be at next month's SummerSlam.

Meanwhile, Diaz also had problems with Cormier for engaging in the melee with Lesnar while also criticizing the new heavyweight champion for his performance against Anderson Silva at UFC 200 back in 2016.

The Wrestling Observer Newsletter is reporting that there is a lot of maneuvering going on regarding what is next for Brock Lesnar and the Universal Championship.

The final WWE match for the "Beast Incarnate" may now be known.


Rousey is now preparing for Extreme Rules where she will be part of the RAW Women's Championship Match between title-holder Alexa Bliss and Nia Jax. At Extreme Rules on Sunday, Roman Reigns and Bobby Lashley will face-off, and there's some thought that the victor of that match could go on to face Lesnar.

Whilst in kayfabe terms this decision makes sense, it is unusual that WWE, a company who have dined out on Lesnar and Ronda Rousey's UFC history in the past, would neglect to mention an appearance which got the MMA world's attention and presumably will lead to a showdown between Lesnar and Cormier inside the Octagon in the near future.but that's Vince McMahon for you! It is now believed that was done on objective and to keep the focus on Extreme Rules and its build-up. Vince McMahon was apparently "adamant" that announcers not talk about Lesnar at all on Raw as he wants to turn him into a mega heel. He points out that Brock Lesnar is in a field of his own right now as a part-time UFC fighter and a part-time WWE Superstar.

It has been years, but WWE is insistent on making Roman Reigns a super babyface and the face of the company, but it just hasn't worked at all. This has gotten more fans to hate Lesnar but it remains to be seen if this works to get Reigns cheered.
