Should Strowman have the opportunity to main event SummerSlam, it would likely be in a Universal Championship match. The odds that Strowman would end up in a non title main event match aren’t the best.
After the end of Great Balls of Fire, either Samoa Joe or Brock Lesnar will be the Universal Champion. If either man has to defend the title against Braun, it would lead to a must-see spectacle in Brooklyn. The potential for a match between either pairing is staggeringly high.
Let’s start with Samoa Joe. Since WrestleMania, Joe has quietly been one of the best parts of Monday Night Raw. He’s delivered great promos filled with emotion, but more importantly he’s had some great matches. The 20 year veteran can seemingly pull a great match out of anyone these days. If he were to lock up with a monster like Braun Strowman, it could be an all time classic.
On the other hand, Brock Lesnar is the closest thing to a monster in WWE outside of Strowman. The mayor of Suplex City has been near unstoppable for the past several years. The strength of both men is a thing that awes audiences across the globe. A possible championship match between Lesnar and Strowman would literally be the unstoppable force against the immovable object.
