We know that Brock Lesnar will be defending his Universal Title at SummerSlam, and now we also know when we will next see him on Raw.
The last time we saw Brock Lesnar on WWE television was back in April. Most fans have reached the point where they don't care that The Beast Incarnate is AWOL. What bothers them is the fact that Lesnar has the Universal Title so that has naturally been absent along with him. Thanks to Kurt Angle though we now know when that title will next be defended, at SummerSlam.
Two triple threats took place this past Monday on Raw to decide the two Superstars who will do battle for the right to take on Lesnar at SummerSlam. Unsurprisingly, Roman Reigns and Bobby Lashley are the final two. The likelihood is that the whole reason the latter defeated the former at Extreme Rules is so that The Big Dog can get his win back next week on Raw and go on to face Lesnar yet again.
If that does happen, Reigns will apparently not have to wait until SummerSlam to be in the same building as the Universal Champion. According to Cageside Seats, The Beast has been advertised for an edition of Raw taking place in Miami, Florida on July 30, 2018. That's 20 days before he steps between the ropes to take on whoever his SummerSlam opponent might be.
It has been confirmed that Triple H was put in charge of Extreme Rules last weekend which is why Reigns versus Lashley did not close the show. It's unlikely that we will be afforded that same courtesy at SummerSlam. Those of you who are sick of the Reigns train have two hopes to cling on to right now. One, that Lashley will win on Raw next week and two, that Braun Strowman will cash in his Money In The Bank contract at SummerSlam.
While fans might be of the belief that Lesnar has no respect for WWE and all of his focus has already shifted to UFC, Paul Heyman assured us that is not the case. That is hard to believe right now, and we can't rule out that The Beast will duck his Raw appearances like he did during the build to WrestleMania. Whatever happens, it's highly likely that the Universal Title will be changing hands at SummerSlam.
