WWE News: Brock Lesnar to be punished at Summerslam

Arindam Paul / 20 August 2016

WWE Summerslam will feature some dream matches on the card. We will see the first ever WWE Universal Championship match where either Seth Rollins or Finn Balor would emerge victoriously. On the other hand, the WWE World Championship match will be contested between Dean Ambrose and Dolph Ziggler.
However, none of these is the main event of the night. The blockbuster main event of Summerslam will see Brock Lesnar competing against Randy Orton. This is a match which took 15 years in the making. If going by the record of the beast, Brock Lesnar then he should dominate the match and continue with his dominant streak. However, inside reports are suggesting something else.
Brock Lesnar is due for a punishment since he was tested positive in the drug test following his MMA fight against Mark Hunt back in UFC 200. Whether in recent weeks we saw a series of superstars getting punished for WWE’s Wellness Policy Violation, Lesnar was able to escape just because he is a part-time performer.

Lesnar also faced backstage heat after going off the script on Raw, this past week while confronting heath Slater. Heath Slater walked down the ramp by telling Paul Heyman that he wants to face Brock Lesnar to earn a contract on Raw. He has to take care of his children. Slater emerged into the ring only to hear from Lesnar that he doesn’t give a s**t about his kids which was totally out of the script.
Wrestling Observer Newsletter reported that Lesnar’s contract had certain dos donuts which allowed him from escaping the punishment, once again. However, since the officials are not happy, at all with the incident, Lesnar is supposed to be punished by digesting the first-ever pinfall loss after Wrestlemania 29.
It will be either Orton getting a clean pin against the beast or there will be a surprise return by Goldberg, interfering the match to cost him in the match. Goldberg will be present at the Summerslam venue for promoting the WWE 2K17 video game. So, a much-anticipated surprise return cannot be wiped out.
