Brock Lesnar Wrestling At WWE SummerSlam

Brock Lesnar made a shock return to UFC

GETTYBrock Lesnar made a shock return to UFC

On Thursday, Wrestling Observer reported that Lesnar will be wrestling at SummerSlam which was a concern of some fans. 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. What resulted was Lesnar hurling insults and UFC setting up their future championship match in a very pro wrestling-esque way. 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.

Later a multi-man number one contender's match was created but canceled when Lesnar's advocate Paul Heyman publicly disagreed with the notion that Lesnar would be competing against a wrestler of WWE's choice.

Meanwhile, Diaz also had problems with Cormier, who he criticized for his UFC 200 performance against former middleweight champion Anderson Silva not to mention getting involved in this near melee with Lesnar just seconds after knocking out Stipe Miocic to become heavyweight champion. Now Reigns will face Bobby Lashley at Extreme Rules but there were no stakes stated yet. So it doesn't make sense to be the G.O.A.T. right now.

When The Beast drops the main prize on WWE's red brand, another superstar will have to take his place as the top superstar on Monday Night Raw.

A 'Downton Abbey' Movie Is Officially Happening
It received a special Bafta tribute in 2015 and won three Golden Globes, 15 Primetime Emmy Awards and 69 Emmy nominations. Yes, it's happening - the long-awaited Downton Abbey movie was given a green light on July 13, according to Variety .

The Wrestling Observer Newsletter states that this superstar is Money in the Bank victor Braun Strowman and for a very important reason.

WWE fans haven't seen Brock Lesnar in the flesh on television since April 27 when he won that Steel Cage Match against Roman Reigns to retain his Universal Championship.

Either way, it would seem we're in for a new Universal champion at SummerSlam, though Lesnar has shocked us before when we thought he would lose.
