1. Jimmy Uso’s Mysterious Path After SummerSlam
A few weeks earlier on SmackDown, Jimmy Uso found himself ensnared in a tumultuous altercation, a consequence of the brutal alliance of Solo Sikoa and Roman Reigns. The scene was one of brutality, resulting in Jimmy requiring medical attention after being subjected to a savage assault and sent crashing through a table.

2. Lesnar’s Surprising Gesture: Retirement Hint?
The monumental clash between The Beast Incarnate and The American Nightmare at SummerSlam held the crowd in rapt attention. The American Nightmare emerged victorious in this high-stakes encounter, but the surprising turn came after the battle. Brock Lesnar, the former Universal Champion, showcased an unexpected display of camaraderie by embracing Cody Rhodes, shaking his hand, and even raising Rhodes’ hand in a gesture of respect. Amid the buzz, speculation arose regarding Lesnar’s intentions, with wrestling pundit Jim Cornette contemplating a possible hint at retirement.
Cornette mused, “Brock took the opportunity to do something like that here means they’re probably not coming back against each other anytime soon. It may indicate that Brock just decided – I don’t know where he’s at on his current deal or whether he’s going to get renewed or whether he’s up for renewal or what he wants to do in the future but he either may say I don’t want to do this anymore entirely or he may want to be a babyface again.”
While Lesnar’s exact trajectory remains cloaked in uncertainty, murmurs suggest his absence might be prolonged following SummerSlam.
