WWE’s biggest party of the summer, Summerslam, is only a few weeks away and the rumors are already swirling as to what the headline match on the card will include, but we may already have our answer.
According to Wrestling Observer’s Dave Meltzer, current plans call for WWE Raw Universal champion Brock Lesnar to defend his title in a fatal four way match against Samoa Joe, Roman Reigns and Braun Strowman.
“Dave Meltzer noted on Wrestling Observer Radio that it looks like WWE is going to go with a fatal four-way match for the Universal Championship at SummerSlam. When Braun Strowman entered the fray and demolished Roman Reigns and Samoa Joe that was obviously a warning shot to put The Monster Among Men over in a big way.”
This is very interesting, as this next title defense for Lesnar has been the subject of much discussion.
Previous reports indicated that Lesnar would hold the title until WrestleMania 34 next year and dropping it to the Big Dog Roman Reigns in the main event. However, it looked as though that may no longer be the case, as the Reigns vs. Lesnar match was reportedly in the running for main eventing Summerslam instead.
If a Fatal Four Way is ultimately where they go, it should be interesting to see how WWE handles the finish to the match. If Lesnar, walks away with the title, he’ll likely hold it until ‘Mania, but if Reigns or Strowman walk out with the belt things get very interesting.
