WWE SummerSlam 2017: 5 Potential Main Events

2 of 5


4. Brock Lesnar vs. Roman Reigns

Brock Lesnar vs. Reigns seems like an inevitable match, at least while Lesnar holds the WWE Universal Championship. Reigns beat Undertaker at WrestleMania 33, and Lesnar defeated Goldberg at the same show, so it should set things up for the two with perhaps the most momentum in WWE, right?

If WWE makes Reigns vs. Lesnar at SummerSlam, it could be billed as a WrestleMania rematch. These two faced off at the Show of Shows in 2015, battling for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship. However, Seth Rollins cashed in his Money in the Bank briefcase and ended up pinning the Big Dog to win the title. Therefore, we never received a clean finish to the original one-on-one.

While SummerSlam would be a proper show to see this happen at, don’t expect Reigns vs. Lesnar until WrestleMania 34. It’s already been rumored as the main event of the show, with the two battling for the Universal Championship. Plans always change in WWE, so this match is hardly a guarantee 11 months out. It does make the chances of seeing this at SummerSlam somewhat unlikely, though.

Either way, Reigns and Lesnar will be favorites to be involved in the SummerSlam main event. What are other options?
