Sean Sapp reported behind Fightful’s paywall that Brock Lesnar is set to face Roman Reigns in the SummerSlam main event. Orton’s surgery means that the Beast Incarnate got that spot.

Word started going around at about 5:00 PM EST backstage that Lesnar’s appearance was likely. Obviously, there was a lot going on backstage in the company today.


Word started to emerge this afternoon shortly before 5 PM EST backstage that Lesnar could be returning. Still, he was not featured on internal rundowns that were handed out just before the show.

It was also reported that these plans were put in place about three weeks ago. So, Lesnar’s return was not a reactionary booking decision because Vince McMahon got busted in a sex scandal.

I love pro wrestling and hate BS. These two things drive me. Years of experience in writing, journalism, and digging exclusive insider info for Ringside News. Worked in finance before realizing pro wrestling journalism made much less sense. Pro beachballs at pro wrestling shows, pro dives if someone catches, anti bullies, olives, and pineapples on pizza.
