Amway Center is Reportedly The New Location for WWE SummerSlam and Future Shows

WWE already booked seven matches for SummerSlam but there was a dilemma regarding the venue. It appears that the company could finally...

SummerSlam 2018 finally gave the WWE Universe what it wanted and turned out to be one of the most successful pay-per-views in a long while. Vince McMahon’s promotion now has a regular fighting WWE Universal Champion — Roman Reigns.

At The Biggest Party of the Summer, Reigns pinned Lesnar at the Barclays Center to be crowned the brand new Universal Champion, thus putting an end to The Beast’s record 504-day world title reign. The match marked the fourth championship encounter between the two men.

Lesnar was advertised for RAW after Summerslam in Brooklyn way before SummerSlam but things didn’t go as expected.

Despite being advertised for the show, the former Universal Champion did not appear on RAW this week, much to the dismay of fans.

According to PWInsider, Lesnar was not at all present on Monday Night RAW as he flew home the same night following the SummerSlam pay-per-view. However, it’s still unknown why WWE didn’t announce that The Beast will not be present on RAW after SummerSlam prior to the show.

Barn Burner’s Brad Shepard also noted on Twitter that this week’s segment on RAW featuring Paul “Triple H” Levesque cut a promo for the WWE Super Show-Down was originally intended for Brock Lesnar and “Advocate” Paul Heyman. The Game will face The Undertaker for the last time ever at the Super Show-Down on October 6, 2018 in Melbourne, Australia.

Heyman appeared on RAW on behalf of Lesnar (as usual) and requested RAW General Manager Kurt Angle to invoke Lesnar’s “contractually obligated rematch” against Roman Reigns at Hell In A Cell. The Olympic Gold Medalist turned down Heyman’s request, saying, “Forget about it.”

This serves as a clear indication that WWE is writing Lesnar off television for an unknown period of time.
