WWE Had Mega Match Planned For Bray Wyatt At Summerslam 2021

“The Fiend” Bray Wyatt has been released from the WWE, a couple of days ago in a move that literally sent a shockwave through the entire WWE roster. Backstage employees and of course, the talents, found it hard to accept the truth of a top superstar was let go from the contract, all of a sudden. Reports also suggest that even top superstars are feeling unsafe in their current position despite their accolades.

That being said, Bray Wyatt’s final WWE match took place at WrestleMania 37, where he lost to Randy Orton. He also lost to Orton back at TLC 2020 which now appeared to be a burial process for his on-screen character. Afterward, his last WWE appearance came during a Firefly Fun House segment on RAW after WrestleMania 37 where he indicated a fresh start in his WWE career but that never happened.

That being said, Bray Wyatt is no longer with WWE as he was released and that brings an end to “The Fiend” gimmick unless the company plans on bringing him back after some time as they did with Samoa Joe. But in the meantime, he was gearing up for an in-ring return in the coming days, and that too in a great physique. Seemingly, he was getting ready for a mega Summerslam matchup.

Bray Wyatt vs. Drew McIntyre was planned for Summerslam

According to the reports of Florida-based pro-wrestling broadcaster Jon Alba, “The Fiend” Bray Wyatt vs. Drew McIntyre was pitched for SummerSlam 2021.

“Bray Wyatt/Drew McIntyre had at least been pitched for SummerSlam at one point. I’m not sure how far those discussions went, but it was talked about at one point.”

Obviously, that plan was canceled as McIntyre is currently feuding with Jinder Mahal (his former 3MB partner) on RAW and he’ll most likely face the Modern-day Maharaja at SummerSlam 2021.

As for Bray Wyatt, he is currently serving as the mandatory 90-day no-compete clause put forth on him by WWE. This will be over before the AEW Full Gear PPV event, leaving him room to make a grand debut in time for that show produced by WWE’s rival brand. Wyatt has removed his WWE on-screen name from social media sites and is currently using his real name, Rotunda Windham.

WWE Raw Preview (02/08/21): Goldberg Returns; Nikki vs. Charlotte; Potential Return

WWE Raw is coming up with a pivotal episode before Summerslam where the expectation is high that the WWE Title match for the PPV will be confirmed. The legendary Goldberg is slated to make an appearance on the show to make his title match encounter finalized with the current champion.

The reigning WWE Raw Women’s Champion will also be in action in a rematch against Charlotte Flair in a stipulated matchup. Omos will be competing in a rare singles match on the show against Riddle in a segment that could witness a return. Plus, we are likely to learn an update on the future of the Women’s tag team titles following Natalya’s injury as Raw airs from the All-State Arena in Chicago, Illinois.

WWE Raw Preview (02/08/21): Goldberg Returns; Nikki vs. Charlotte; Potential Return 11

Goldberg returned on WWE Raw during the post Money in the Bank episode as he confronted Bobby Lashley, indicating a title match. Taking to Twitter, the champion rejected the challenge while he also revealed the same idea during last week’s episode. Now the former WCW franchise is likely to have one more face-off with him to confirm the mega Summerslam bout.

As per WWE’s confirmations, Goldberg will be on RAW to respond to WWE Champion Bobby Lashley dismissing his SummerSlam challenge last week. It’s likely that the match will be confirmed on Monday. Goldberg was advertised locally, and via the WWE website, while this was recently made, official. Following this week’s appearance, Goldberg will appear on the August 16 episode from the AT&T Center in San Antonio, the go-home RAW for SummerSlam.

WWE Raw Preview (02/08/21): Goldberg Returns; Nikki vs. Charlotte; Potential Return 12

Previously, it was announced that WWE Raw Women’s Champion Nikki Cross A.S.H. will compete in a rematch against Charlotte Flair. This match happens as a result of what transpired last week between the two. Flair defeated Cross in a non-title match with a roll-up and bragged about it. Cross proceeded to issue another challenge which was accepted by Flair but she then delivered an assault to Cross.

WWE then announced that the Nikki vs. Charlotte rematch will be held under the No Holds Barred stipulation where nothing could disqualify the contest. Just like this past Monday’s WWE Raw, this match announced for Monday is being billed as another Women’s Title Contenders Match while Flair vs. Rhea Ripley vs. Nikki in a Triple Threat for the title has already been announced for WWE SummerSlam.

WWE RAW Tag Team Champion Omos vs. Riddle has also been announced for the show. This will be Omos’ second singles match on the main roster since he defeated Erik back on the July 12 RAW episode. This coming match against Riddle happens as Omos destroyed Riddle’s scooter, last week followed by an attack from Omos’ tag team partner, AJ Styles.

There have been rumors on Riddle and Randy Orton possibly challenging Omos and AJ, perhaps at the WWE SummerSlam pay-per-view on August 21. Orton has been away from RAW for a month now, but he is considered to be in action in time for RAW in Chicago. He is currently being advertised for WWE Raw for the upcoming weeks and house shows, hinting at a return to save Riddle from Styles and Omos.

Last week, Natalya was injured during a tag team match while tangling with Doudrop and that is a big problem. The company won’t have one veteran competitor on the roster. Plus, she is also one-half of the Women’s tag team champions. Going by the current updates, Nattie had to undergo surgery to fix the problems on her legs. Hence, there’s a chance that the titles could be vacated.

According to Post Wrestling, Natalya’s injury will be addressed on WWE RAW, this week as WWE might also announce the tag team title plans around Summerslam,

“WWE is going to provide an update on the status of Natalya and the Women’s Tag Team Championships that she and Tamina are in possession of. The #1 contenders to the titles are Shotzi Blackheart and Nox.”

More on the story will be made available on a brand new episode of WWE Raw, airing from the rowdy city of Chicago.

WWE Summerslam 2021: John Cena vs. Roman Reigns Main Event Officially Announced

John Cena vs. WWE Universal Champion Roman Reigns has been officially announced for WWE SummerSlam 2021. Originally, WWE had announced a SummerSlam contract signing for SmackDown, with Finn Balor possibly challenging Reigns. This segment was announced as a fallout of what went down on last week’s SmackDown episode.

The post Money In The Bank 2021 edition saw Roman Reigns denying John Cena’s WWE SummerSlam 2021 challenge but then he would go on to accept a challenge from Balor. So the two met in the ring, this week to make the title match official for the next pay-per-view event.

In that WWE SummerSlam 2021 contract signing, Roman Reigns put his signature on paper first. The two exchanged some verbal words after Balor went to sign the contract but he was attacked from behind by Baron Corbin.

Corbin threw away the contract and took Balor to ringside and thereby laying him out. Corbin then brought the contract back to the table and went to sign it as Reigns looked on. John Cena then rushed the ring and took out Corbin. Cena picked the contract up and signed it as Reigns was seemingly angry while sitting on his chair.

Paul Heyman then confronted WWE Officials Adam Pearce and Sonya Deville backstage and said the contract is not legal since it has Balor’s name on it, but Cena’s signature. But Pearce and Deville confirmed that the contract is good to go for them, and thus Cena vs. Reigns was made official for WWE SummerSlam 2021, with the Universal Title on the line.

Meanwhile, Baron Corbin interrupted John Cena’s opening segment earlier in the night, asking him for help as he tries to recover from his current downtime. That segment ended with Cena dropping Corbin with his Attitude Adjustment finisher. But by the looks, Corbin may go forward to be feuding with Balor after costing him a title match.

WWE SummerSlam 2021 takes place on Saturday, August 21 from Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas, Nevada. Currently, only two matches have been announced for the match card for the PPV night,

WWE Smackdown Preview (30/07/21): New Challenges Await The Champions

WWE continues to build for SummerSlam amid fans in attendance as another episode of SmackDown will be held, tonight. The Universal Champion is the expected headliner of the show where he’d possibly be competing against a fresh opponent. The Women’s Champion is also likely to receive a new opponent when this week’s episode airs from the Target Center in Minneapolis, Minnesota.

Last week, John Cena welcomed the WWE Universe in his grand return to SmackDown. He once again mentioned that his return to the WWE was because of facing the Universal Champion Roman Reigns as he laid down a challenge to him targeting the SummerSlam 2021 main event. However, The Tribal Chief wasn’t interested in going toe-to-toe with the Cenation Leader.

In a later promo session, Roman Reigns was happy to decline the challenge and thereby a massive match against John Cena. That’s when Finn Balor’s music hit the arena as he came out to confront the champion. Balor said if Reigns wasn’t interested in Cena’s challenge, maybe he would be interested in this challenge from Balor. Reigns talked it over with Heyman and then accepted the challenge.

Following that segment, WWE is now promoting that Roman Reigns will be looking forward to his new opponent on SmackDown while they haven’t yet clarified whether the title match will go down on SmackDown. Balor originally returned on July 16 show to attack Sami Zayn. He then made his in-ring return last week by defeating Zayn in singles action.

WWE Smackdown Preview (30/07/21): Who will be Bianca Belair’s next opponent?

Last week’s SmackDown witnessed another championship match between Bianca Belair and Carmella where the champion successfully retained her belt in a rare match that took place at the Rolling Loud festival. That being said, the existing feud should be over as Beliar may expect to receive a new opponent, this week.

The expectation is that WWE will present a new challenger for the SmackDown Women’s Championship eyeing a big match at SummerSlam 2021. Rumors suggest that Sasha Banks could return to set up a rematch from WrestleMania 37 against Belair. Also, Toni Storm could be a viable option for Belair as she made a grand debut last week by defeating Zelina Vega. Following her win, she also cut a promo and mentioned how she is destined to be a future champion.

The rivalry between the Mysterios and The Usos is likely to continue as the latter duo was able to upstage the father-son duo at the WWE Money in the Bank Kick-off to once again become SmackDown Tag Team Champions. Then Jimmy Uso scored a singles victory over Dominik with a Superkick after a hard-fought battle, last week. The other half of the Uso provided assistance from outside the ring and we assume Mysterio Sr. didn’t take it lightly.

WWE Hall of Famer Edge was clear enough to mention that Seth Rollins was the reason that he didn’t become the Universal Champion at Money in the Bank. Now he is willing to go to any level to seek revenge on the SmackDown Savior by any means. He already sent a message by putting him down, last week in a physical confrontation segment. Now, it’s only a matter of time that the two get booked in a dream bout at SummerSlam.

WWE Summerslam 2021: Bobby Lashley To Face Hall Of Famer?

WWE is trying hard to stack up the card for Summerslam 2021, as much as possible with the top superstars from the roster. They will also be utilizing some of the returnees for the PPV event that makes it no less than a Wrestlemania occasion. Following the return of the WWE Hall of Famer Edge, another such old-school name is likely to be back in time for the August event to get involved in the WWE Title picture.

Bobby Lashley is currently set to defend the WWE Championship against Kofi Kingston at Money In The Bank 2021 PPV. This is supposed to be a filler feud on Lashley’s road to WWE SummerSlam 2021. With his dominant run on Raw, there’s no way that Kingston is going to win. Lashley is scheduled to defeat Kingston and then move on to the next feud. It now appears an interesting opponent could be waiting for him.

According to the reports of Wrestling Observer, there are rumors of bringing back WWE Hall Of Famer Goldberg for another WWE Championship match this year. This led to the speculations that Lashley might end up facing the former WCW franchise player for the title at WWE Summerslam 2021. This comes after doubts over Brock Lesnar’s comeback to the WWE, this summer season.

Moreover, Fightful now reports that Goldberg is now slated to make a return on the post MITB edition of Raw, this Monday night to confirm the match against Lashley. We will have to wait and watch to learn how things will unfold in the coming weeks.

Previously, Bobby Lashley vs. Brock Lesnar was reported to take place at Summerslam 2021, but WWE creative team still doesn’t have any plans over the Beast’s return, as per Ringside News. It is possible that WWE may just want to save that match for a future PPV main event since the main event of SummerSlam 2021 will reportedly be Roman Reigns vs. John Cena in a Universal Title Match.

This brings back Goldberg into the conversation since he still has one match left to compete under his latest WWE deal. But if he comes back for Summerslam 2021 then to face Lashley for the title, it would most likely be causing yet another loss for the WCW Legend. At the beginning of this year, Goldberg faced Drew McIntyre for the WWE Championship at the Royal Rumble 2021 PPV and came up short.

There was some speculation on John Cena’s WWE return after last week it was announced for the new “Argylle” movie franchise. The first film in the franchise will begin filming in Europe this August. Now, multiple sources noted that the filming of “Argylle” in Europe next month will not affect the return and a match at SummerSlam. But he may just have to quickly leave after the PPV.

That being said, John Cena won’t be the one to defeat Roman Reigns for the Universal Title on August 21. As he headed to the UK for Argylle shoot, The Peacemaker series will go for editing studios as it eyes a January 22 release. It will feature 8 episodes in the first season with Cena in the lead role. He previously mentioned that the shooting was the reason why he missed WrestleMania 37 in April.

Going by the earlier reports, WWE will be going all out to make Summerslam 2021 to be the Wrestlemania of this year.

The Wrestling Observer is reporting that John Cena is locked in for the main event of Summerslam 2021 against Roman Reigns. So he will be performing in the PPV before making a right-away exit from TV, thereafter,

“No word on when he shows up for television, but Cena is free of responsibilities for acting work at this point and until after SummerSlam. Cena vs. Reigns is locked in as the main event for the show. However, Cena is in a movie called ‘Argylle’, a spy thriller which will be shooting in Europe in August. It’s possible he could start after or end prior to the date, or even get a few days off.”

As you can see, the source mentioned that the Cenation Leader will be busy shooting for Argylle and hence he won’t stick around on WWE programming once Summerslam 2021 is over. There’s no update on how many appearances he will be making, leading to the title match against Reigns. As for the “Argylle” movie, at least three films are in the pipeline for this debut franchise. There is no word on whether Cena has been roped in for all the future films in the series.

Now, one of the head honchos of the WWE has opened up about Summerslam becoming pretty big, this year. While speaking to Yahoo Finance, Stephanie McMahon was asked whether she has any plans to return to the in-ring competition at the biggest party of the summer, this year.

“Ever since Ronda Rousey broke my arm, I have a little PTSD. I’m not sure you’re going to see me in the ring anytime soon, but I guarantee for SummerSlam, there is going to be a lot of surprises,”

Stephanie also mentioned how positive the ticket sales have been going, right now,

“We are currently on sale with about 26 different events, and of course, SummerSlam goes on sale this Friday. Very important… August 21 from Allegiant Stadium, which is Raiders Stadium in Vegas, we’re so excited, and we have seen excellent results so far. We are definitely tracking way ahead of where we were actually the last time we were in market for these events. So, we feel very good about it.”

Summerslam 2021: Backstage News On WWE Conducting A Huge PPV Night

As reported earlier, WWE will be using all its resources to make sure that SummerSlam 2021 appears to be this year’s WrestleMania. The company is moving forward to make this event as big as possible by securing more marquee names for the show. More updates are now available in this regard.

During the Mat Men Pro Wrestling podcast, Andrew Zarian noted that he does not believe that WWE has locked Brock Lesnar down for SummerSlam 2021 which coincides with the earlier report that the former champion is yet to receive the call from WWE’s part. However, WWE does have a list of mega names ready they want for the event, and Lesnar’s name was on that list.

Right now, the situation is that WWE is yet to lock down Lesnar down for SummerSlam 2021.

“WWE had a list of mega names for SummerSlam, Brock was one of those. I don’t know if Brock is a contractual thing where the money wasn’t right to bring him back now as opposed to, I don’t know, Survivor Series is happening and you’re getting closer to Royal Rumble. Because he’s a touring attraction, especially now, I think his stock has gone up, because WWE is going to need all of these guys for all of these shows.”

WWE President & Chief Revenue Officer Nick Khan is reportedly the man behind WWE SummerSlam 2021 going down from Las Vegas, this year. It was reportedly Khan’s idea to conduct the biggest party of the summer in Vegas, and he’s been pushing for the bigger ideas since then, according to Andrew Zarian.

Khan is also going with the idea of SummerSlam 2021 being a spectacle this year. It’s already been reported how Cardi B is rumored to be the host of the show. Now, reports suggest that Khan is also high on the idea of the rapper hosting the pay-per-view event.

Regarding Cardi B, Khan spoke with Alfred Konuwa of Forbes earlier this year to indicate that WWE would like to work with her.

“Yes, and specifically the two that you just mentioned,” Khan said of Bad Bunny and Cardi B, in response to a question on WWE possibly roping in the popular musicians. “Obviously, there is no touring right now, so the ability to get Bad Bunny for however long this run is going to be—and you’re going to see a lot of him—I don’t believe that would have existed in a world where Bad Bunny was on tour. That’s going to be a continual effort, so we’re always going to watch Bad Bunny, Cardi B to get involved.”

Summerslam 2021: Backstage News On WWE Conducting A Huge PPV Night 79

Khan’s comments on Bad Bunny and Cardi B were made in early February after which Bunny went on to make several RAW appearances after which he teamed with Damian Priest for a WrestleMania 37 win over The Miz and John Morrison. WWE was able to sell a ton of Bad Bunny merchandise, and thereby garner a significant amount of mainstream media attention.

Now, they are hoping to find a similar amount of success with Cardi B at SummerSlam 2021. The Up singles track is being used as the official theme song of the show while chances are pretty high that she will be heavily involved in the event that’s scheduled to take place at the Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas, Nevada on August 21.

Spoiler On Edge’s Opponent At WWE Summerslam 2021

Reports are already out claiming that, WWE Hall Of Famer Edge will return in time for SummerSlam 2021 to have a match on that night. WWE, itself has started advertising him for the particular first TV episode that goes down with live fans in attendance within one month from now. He will be returning on the July 16th episode of SmackDown, it appears.

As noted, this is going to be the first WWE TV show with fans in attendance ever since the COVID-19 pandemic began and it could mark a huge program, eyeing this summer. WWFOldSchool reports that Edge vs. Seth Rollins is currently being discussed for SummerSlam 2021. It’s likely the return of the Rated R Superstar could commence the same in that very night.

Update On Edge’s Comeback To WWE In 2021

Spoiler On Edge’s Opponent At WWE Summerslam 2021 88

While WWE Universe would be down for this dream match to happen, the history between these two men goes way back to 2014. A heel Rollins threatened to break Edge’s neck if John Cena didn’t agree to put The Authority – Triple H and Stephanie McMahon back in power, during an episode of Raw. Eventually, Cena was forced to do so to save his old buddy cum rival.

Backstory set for Edge vs Seth Rollins program

Edge then shared a backstage segment with Rollins, a couple of years later on Raw. He also got a little payback on Rollins during the Men’s Royal Rumble 2020 match but their interaction during the match was very short. Then again at this year’s Men’s Royal Rumble match, he threw Rollins over the top rope to get some payback.

Edge was last seen on WWE TV on April 11, in the main event of WrestleMania 37 Night Two where he was hit with a Con-Chair-To and pinned (along with Daniel Bryan) by Roman Reigns. The rumors had that he might re-engage into the championship feud against Roman Reigns following his return over the Universal Championship. But Roman is reportedly booked in a match against John Cena at SummerSlam.

Rollins has been feuding with Cesaro for months as they’re set to face each other in a WrestleMania 37 rematch (Cesaro defeated Rollins in that match), this Sunday at the Hell In A Cell 2021 pay-per-view.

As for Edge, the former champion is set to return to WWE as a babyface (per Wrestling Observer Newsletter) during the build for SummerSlam. With live crowds in attendance, it’s certain that will get a huge pop. Bookings also show that he will appear on the September 3rd episode of SmackDown and perhaps the storyline around him will continue even after the Biggest Party of the Summer.
