Home » WWE News » More on WWE Possibly Moving Triple H vs. Brock Lesnar Up from SummerSlam

- We noted earlier this week that WWE officials were “in a panic” over the Brock Lesnar vs. Triple H storyline and were considering having the match take place at June’s No Way Out pay-per-view. In an update, they are considering it for No Way Out or July’s Money in the Bank pay-per-view. The match was originally planned for SummerSlam in August.

Moving the match up would extend the time between Lesnar appearances on WWE TV this year since it’s believed they only have him for around 24 dates this year with the rest of the dates being used next year for WrestleMania season. The main reason for keeping Lesnar out until the SummerSlam match was because they had already burned through 5 dates between WrestleMania and Extreme Rules.

    hell just get it over in a house show. i wouldnt waste my money on a ppv that brock will be in.

  • John

    I don’t understand how WWE thought they could make 24 appearances into anything tangible over a full year. The should’ve pushed for atleast 2 episodes of Raw per month along with PPVs with breaks in-between. It seems like they’re gonna be forced to come up with stupid reasons to write Lesnar out of the storylines. What’s gonna happen after the HHH fued? Are they gonna make Lesnar quit again.

    say what you want about tyson kidd, he is an entertaining superstar…and yes, he does deserve a spot on the main roster. If they bring back the cruiserweight division he could be a great champion….

  • N8daGr8

    Why can’t they just use him to show up only at the main events for the rest of this year like have him at No Way Out and Summerslam and maybe Survivor Series. That’s only 3 appearances and use the rest next year to build up to Wrestlemania. I agree that it is a shitty contract and he should have shown up Alot more for the money he’s getting.

  • Bill E. Bob

    Taker vs Lesnar at WM next year.

  • John

    I agree with @RPM. With Lesnar having less than 20 appearances left on his contract I can’t see WWE being able to hold off until Summerslam. If that’s what they wanted to do then they should’ve started the program in June or July not the night after Extreame Rules. I say they should book the match or matches for No Way Out or Money in the Bank at the latest. Afterall we all saw how dull the Rock/Cena fued got because of one man’s unavailabilty. HHH can’t fued with Lesnar on the titantron or Heyman. It needs to be Lesnar in person.

  • Bill

    If HHH vs. Lesnar is moved to NWO(which I wouldn’t do), then Lesnar needs to have another high-profile match at SS. Punk vs. Lesnar would be REALLY interesting, especially with Heyman back.

  • RPM

    the problem is to keep the story relevant and have it not be boring it really needs to be sooner rather then later but if summerslam is a bigger event for them then it should be in August.

    I don’t see 3months of Heyman and Triple H talking really that exciting

  • nick

    TYSON KIDD SHOULD BE GRANTED 1 HOUR FROM EVERY SINGLE RAW AND YOU KNOW IT. HE IS SO AMAZING

  • Dans

    Nick – Tyson Kidd is the worst thing in NXT and hope he gets released so he can go and get a proper job.

  • Whatever

    and there he is…
    thx berto…

  • nick

    TYSON KIDD! TYSON KIDD! TYSON KIDD! HE SHOULD MAIN EVENT SUMMERSLAM PUT HIM IN A 1 HOUR IRON MAN MATCH AGAISNT ZIGGLER FOR THE US TITLE!

  • berto

    where’s nick with a tyson kidd comment?

  • “Bad Man” Bigelow

    It’d be ridiculous not to have Lesnar/HHH at Summerslam.

  • shawn

    i cant wait to see more storyline explations of Brock leaving and coming back again. thats gonna be pretty good.

  • Gorilla

    I disagree I think SummerSlam will be a stacked card, but lesnar vs hhh is what needs to happen Vince calls it the biggest show of summer well its time to deliver ..and we waited over a year for Cena vs Rock a few months wont hurt for this encounter.

  • JohnCena33

    Keep the match for summerslam since that will be the only good match summerslam will have.

  • Gorilla

    This match needs to headline SummerSlam. The biggest show of the summer needs a big time match.

  • Stashathan

    @fivo goes west
    I agree with you, yeah we know Brock has something wrong
    with his stomache but damn, 5 mill for 24 dates?
    They should have got him for most RAWs and a ppv
    here and there, it is indeed a slap in the face to Shawn Michaels

  • Tha bookey

    Horrendous idea. They should wait until summerslam. Do not put this match on one of these low budget PPV coming up

  • fivo goes west

    That’s bull they should have at least been able to get him to show up to all raw events. What the princess can’t work one damn day a week?
