The Canadian airing of WWE Smackdown on Wednesday night did not include any mention of Brock Lesnar’s opponent at SummerSlam. However, the Aftermath post-show in Canada listed Randy Orton as Lesnar’s opponent. [Thanks to Dot Net reader Darius Malcisky]
Powell’s POV: Orton had been heavily rumored as the opponent for Lesnar. WWE is still advertising the announcement of Lesnar’s opponent for tonight’s Smackdown, so it appears they opted against airing it in Canada so that it would not be spoiled before it aired in the United States. Join Jake Barnett for live coverage of Smackdown as the show airs on USA Network tonight at 7:00 p.m. CT.
