WWE Rumour: Brock Lesnar likely to return at WWE Summerslam PPV. WWE Rumour: Brock Lesnar last appeared at the Showcase of The Immortals– Wrestlemania 36, where he lost the WWE Championship to Drew McIntyre. It has been more than a year since we have seen the Beast Incarnate on WWE TV. However, it seems like the former World Champion is all set to return at the Summerslam pay-per-view in August.
Brock Lesnar was mentioned last week on WWE Raw!
Last week in the main event of WWE Raw, Drew McIntyre took on Kofi Kingston. During the night, Lesnar’s name was mentioned by both Kofi and McIntyre when the two got interviewed separately for their main event match.
As reported by Brian Alvarez of Wrestling News Observer, WWE using Lesnar’s name regularly on TV might be because the company is planting seeds for his return.
Further, Andrew Zarian of The Mat Men podcast has surprisingly confirmed that Lesnar is in the talks to appear on WWE Summerslamalong with the 16-time World Champion John Cena. If the two are present on the same night, the show is definitely going to get an outstanding response. Zarian stated,
“I would say expect to see all of the big names that make sense. Lesnar was early on for SummerSlam plans- they were trying to do something. I think the concept behind Lesnar is to justify what we are gonna pay him [and] we need a more consistent touring schedule so we can build to this, and those appearances by Lesnar will help sell tickets, obviously.”
No news on Brock’s opponent for Summerslam
There is no official news on whom Lesnar would be facing at Summerslam. Speculations, however, suggest that he will go after the WWE Championship title, which he lost to Drew McIntyre at Wrestlemania 36.
Brock Lesnar vs. Bobby Lashley is one of the dream matches for every WWE fan. Let us see if WWE works in that direction, and a stage like Summerslam will be apt for the clash of these two titans.
