Its been reported for the past several weeks that WWE Universal Champion Brock Lesnar is expected to defend his title against Roman Reigns in the main event of SummerSlam on August 19th. The Beast is expected to drop the title at the event and it’s rumored it would be his last match under his current WWE deal.
Per an update from Wrestling Observer Newsletter, Reigns vs. Lesnar is not yet a done deal for SummerSlam as of this past weekend. In addition, Vince McMahon has yet to confirm Lesnar for the SummerSlam event at all. Lesnar isn’t even scheduled for any upcoming WWE dates either at the moment, which is odd given he’s the top champion on RAW.
Lesnar is reportedly aware of this and, and as of a few days ago WWE officials have yet to confirm a return for The Beast. He is currently the longest reigning WWE World Champion of the Modern Era, breaking CM Punk’s previous record of 434 days earlier this week.
