The following is a rumor only:
— As we have noted before many times, WWE appears firmly committed in crowning Roman Reigns the new Universal champion at SummerSlam, after he defeats Brock Lesnar, who is expected to begin preparing for another UFC fight next year. This was supposed to happen at WrestleMania, but Vince McMahon aborted those plans at the last minute reportedly due to the fact that he didn’t want the show to end with the audience booing Reigns.
— Many are expecting a similar outcome at SummerSlam as the reaction Reigns is getting is only marginally better than what he was getting in the spring, however, if one source is to be believed, WWE may have a trick up their sleeve to ensure this doesn’t happen.
— One idea that has been discussed (but not confirmed) has been for Reigns to win the match clean, only for Lesnar to “snap” and viciously beat down Reigns as he is celebrating. This would continue until Seth Rollins and a returning Dean Ambrose run down for the save and together, the three would triple powerbomb Lesnar to send him packing. The show would then end with the Shield all together celebrating Reigns’ win, which more likely than not, would send the fans home happy.
