Because everyone loved their main event match at WrestleMania 34, and national monuments were constructed in honor of their second masterpiece at The Greatest Royal Rumble, WWE is apparently going back to the well for yet another marquee match between Brock Lesnar and Roman Reigns.
According to the latest Wrestling Observer Newsletter, the “working plan” is once again for the Beast Incarnate to defend the WWE Universal Championship against Roman Reigns at this year’s WWE SummerSlam pay-per-view in Brooklyn. Interestingly, unless he signs a new deal between now and then, the match will be Lesnar’s final contracted appearance for the company so it’s almost guaranteed that we’re getting a title change.
However, as of right now the bout still has not been given the official go-ahead from Vince McMahon, and while Lesnar is obviously aware of SummerSlam and will more than likely be defending the title on the show no matter what happens, he’s usually informed of all his bookings and plans well ahead of time. But for the time being we’re in an almost unbelievable situation where the current reigning WWE Universal Champion doesn’t have a single official booking on his calendar right now.
