Brock Lesnar and Cody Rhodes had their third match at SummerSlam, and the American Nightmare beat Lesnar once again. That being said, Lesnar wasn’t 100% by the end of that match.

The Wrestling Observer Newsletter noted that Brock Lesnar was actually injured early into that SummerSlam match with Cody Rhodes. That being said, the nature of his injury was not disclosed.

Lesnar, who was injured early in the match where he put over Cody Rhodes, was at one point advertised for stuff later this year. As of right now, he put Rhodes over clean, shook his hand, turned himself back babyface in doing so, and the plan is for him to return on the television building up the Royal Rumble and from there going to WrestleMania. Although I could see him returning for the November Saudi Arabia show even if today that isn’t the plan, or if there is an injury, he’s always there if they need a program.


As Ringside News previously reported, Roman Reigns either suffered a hip or a back injury. This took place about five minutes into the match as well. Obviously, SummerSlam was a big night where nobody knew what would happen next.

Ringside News exclusively reported that Brock Lesnar is not scheduled for Payback. That being said, his break will be a longer one this time around. He will be back, and odds are he will be 100% once that happens.
