SummerSlam finally gave the WWE Universe what it was yearning for since WrestleMania 34. Or at least it seems it did.
Brock Lesnar’s historic longest WWE Universal Championship reign came to an end as he was conquered (finally!) by arch rival Roman Reigns. The Big Dog left the Barclays Center as the new Universal Champion but his victory has left a big question looming in the dark.
What’s next for Brock Lesnar, Roman Reigns and Braun Strowman?
The match between Lesnar and Reigns was being observed by Braun Strowman who was standing at ringside with his Money In The Bank briefcase. Although the match didn’t last long, Strowman got beaten up as Reigns dived on him through the ropes and Lesnar hit him with an F-5.
The current line-up for September’s WWE Live Events is advertising Roman Reigns vs. Braun Strowman. This means both these men will be feuding, thus resuming their old rivalry. This time it’s gonna be a hard job for WWE to handle all the boos as fans will inevitably cheer for Strowman unless the Creative end up screwing The Monster Among Men.
Another takeaway is that Strowman will be cashing in his briefcase if he is to face Reigns as per the advertised live event schedule.
Brock Lesnar is back in the USADA testing pool and has already been tested a few times. If The Beast doesn’t fail any upcoming tests, he will be cleared to fight UFC Heavyweight Champion Daniel Cormier anytime after early January, 2019.
Lesnar is scheduled for RAW after SummerSlam. This would mark his last WWE appearance under the current contract.
Since WWE has a habit of pulling off big surprises on the RAW after SummerSlam, it’s possible that Lesnar vs. Reigns rematch for the Universal Championship will take place where The Beast captures the title only for Strowman to cash-in his briefcase to become the new champion. That, or the match might come to an abrupt end if Strowman ends up possibly cashing-in against Reigns while the match is on.
With Dana White publicly announcing that the UFC has reached a deal with Lesnar, it appears that The Beast is done with WWE for good.
At this point, anything is possible with the three heavyweight Superstars in one of the the most important phases in their careers. Tune in to Monday Night RAW to find out what the future holds for the The Beast, The Big Dog and The Monster.
