This will now be the 9th time that Reigns and Lesnar will compete in a match on a premium class live event. The number could have been 10, as the 2 were set to combat for the Universal Championship on Day 1 on New Year’s Day, however, Reigns become pulled from the match after testing positive for COVID-19. In total, 8 of these 9 matches were for the world titles.
Reigns and Lesnar last competed at WrestleMania 38, in what was billed as the “Biggest WrestleMania Match of All-Time.” The bout, to be pretty honest, failed to live to the hype. It lasted a bit over 12 minutes, which ended all of a sudden after Reigns pinned Lesnar with a spear.
While Lesnar has been entertaining since his return as a face in 2021, having another match in opposition to Reigns is just not enticing as it once was. Some reading this will be hyped about this upcoming match at SummerSlam, and greater energy to you. The factor is, that WWE goes for a title match between those stars on a premium live event for the 3 time in less than 12 months. The mystique looks like it’s miles gone. It isn’t the “Stone Cold” Steve Austin vs. The Rock feud like WWE is pushing it like it is.
WWE has failed to accumulate more than one credible babyface challenger considering that Reigns gained the Universal Championship in 2020. They ought to have had a handful of worthy challengers for Reigns on this time with all of those injuries. But, they don’t. Hence why they’re going back to the Reigns vs. Lesnar right again.
WWE has added a lot of different PPVs – sorry, premium live events – over the years, however, only a handful have controlled to the test of time. WrestleMania continues to be WWE‘s largest event of the year, of course, but ever since its creation in 1988, SummerSlam has been number two. The largest party of the summer season will return yet again this year, a bit in advance than usual, and it is sure to be as large an event as WWE can make it despite a number of the promotion’s largest Superstars losing like flies.
Now, that is in advance date. SummerSlam will take place on Saturday, July 30, 2022. That marks the first time in its 34 years of records that SummerSlam hasn’t taken place in August, possibly due to the fact WWE is headed to the United Kingdom for another stadium show, Clash on the Castle, on September 3.
SummerSlam will start at eight pm EST, probably with a kickoff show to start one or two hours before the top card. Fans in the US will be able to watch live on Peacock, at the same time as the ones of you someplace else will need to tune in via the WWE Network.
Roman Reigns vs. Brock Lesnar for the Undisputed WWE Universal Championship in a Last Man Standing Match
Enter Lesnar, the person Reigns beat in the first place to become the Undisputed Champion. This time around, one guy will need to keep the alternative down for a count of ten as this could be the Last Man Standing match. As for who wins, this is a genuinely hard one. If a 3rd guy does not get brought to this match, I’m looking ahead to a Reigns win and whoever wins the men’s Money in the Bank match to cash in and take the WWE Title from him, leaving his prolonged Universal Title reign intact. But I nevertheless wish Roman Reigns will win this match pretty easily.
