WWE SummerSlam main event announced

By Jason Powell, ProWrestling.net Editor (@prowrestlingnet)

Brock Lesnar made a surprise return at the end of WWE Friday Night Smackdown. Lesnar confronted Roman Reigns and ended up hitting F5’s on Reigns, Jimmy Uso, and Jey Uso. WWE announced after the show that Lesnar will challenge Reigns for the Undisputed WWE Universal Championship in a Last Man Standing match at SummerSlam. Read the official announcement at WWE.com.

Powell’s POV: I attended Friday’s Smackdown in person and Lesnar’s return drew the biggest pop of the night. This was his first WWE appearance since he lost to Reigns at WrestleMania 38. SummerSlam will be held on July 30 in Nashville, Tennessee at Nissan Stadium.

  1. Ugh…FFS

  2. Hey Jason you were there last night so I wondered your in person observation. Has Roman either put on weight or lost muscle tone?

    The match was good but to me. On TV anyway. He looked a little bloated. And this isn’t a criticism. I always wonder about his health

    As of noon ET the most watched YT clip from last night’s Smackdown is Lesnar’s return with 1.57m views. Riddle vs Reigns highlights are at 765k and Mr. McMahon’s appearance is a 744k. Nothing else is over 315k.

    Lesnar and Reigns move the needle for actual wrestling fans, despite the constant bitching by the IWC.

  4. Reigns vs Lesnar 39. Has this company no talent outside of part timers. May as well add Goldberg and make it a 3way . I’ll pass thanks wwe.
