It was announced this past Monday that Roman Reigns will face Bobby Lashley for the opportunity of face Brock Lesnar in the main event of SummerSlam this year for the WWE Universal Championship on next week’s RAW.
Joseph Peisech of Barn Burner mentioned on the latest “No Holds Barred” episode that the rumor going around is WWE could be planning a triple threat match at SummerSlam for the Universal Championship with Hulk Hogan as the special enforcer. This match would obviously feature Brock Lesnar defending the Universal Championship against Roman Reigns and Bobby Lashley.
Peisech explained how the company plans to have SummerSlam close with Hulk Hogan raising the hand of Lashley as the show goes off the air.
“Apparently that’s going to lead to a three-way dance at SummerSlam. Hulk Hogan will be the special referee/enforcer person outside the ring or whatever. Basically Hulk Hogan was WWE wrestling. He made WWE/WWF into the popularity it was. How about Hogan costing Brock Lesnar. Lesnar goes to the UFC making Bobby Lashley win the Universal Title and at the end of the night — rumor has it and I have not confirmed this yet, the plan going around is that Hogan raising up Bobby Lashley’s hand. Of course Bobby Lashley will be the first black Universal Champion. Hogan raising up his hand.”
As mentioned above, this is only a rumor for right now and we are still waiting for conformation. You can listen to Peisech remarks embedded in the audio below.
