Summerslam is the second biggest PPV event in WWE’s programming. And we are expecting to see the prime names of RAW and Smackdown brands – to feature in this particular show.
In 2018, the event is returning to the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York. This venue is hosting the ‘biggest party of the summer’ for four consecutive years which is something big in itself.
August 19th is the date where both the brands will come together for Summerslam PPV. The speculations are quite high about the potential main event of the show.
WWE might have already given hints about the same in recent times. This is why a reliable source has given updates on the marquee match of the evening.
Brock Lesnar has been part of the SummerSlam’s main event for the past four years. This year too there should not be an exception. He is still the Universal Champion (UC) with the reign continuing for more than 350 days. His return seems evident for this event to defend his championship.
Wrestling Observer predicted that a Wrestlemania rematch will be the main event will of SummerSlam. Roman Reigns versus Brock Lesnar will be the lineup.
In addition, the fans might not intend to see this but this is what Vince McMahon has in-store.
Check out probable reasons behind this match, (courtesy SportsKeeda.com):
“Dave Meltzer of The Observer asserted WWE—through its commentary team—has been pushing the idea that Roman Reigns deserves another shot at Brock Lesnar’s Universal Championship, owing to the controversial manner in which their match at WWE’s Greatest Royal Rumble PPV ended.”
The wrestling pundit mentioned that the commentary team has been pushing this match for a long time. We have seen it on multiple occasions that they are informing us about Lesnar’s unfair win at GRR.
So, they basically do not want us to forget that Roman Reigns does deserve another championship match at SummerSlam.
The source also updated that there are chances that WWE changes this match at the very last point. This depends on the concurrent situation of the storyline.
But if this match happens then Roman Reigns is certain to become the new champion, finally. This would be a coronation for him as the beast will no more be part of WWE programming from then onwards.
