Brock Lesnar reportedly not working SummerSlam

Brock Lesnar WrestleMania

We noted before how WWE was still planning a match between Brock Lesnar and Roman Reigns and the most likely destination for it looked to be the SummerSlam PPV.

However, an update on the situation revealed that a SummerSlam appearance from the Beast was not a done deal and now a new report makes things worse.

According to Pwinsider, Brock is not only expected to miss the SummerSlam PPV but the Universal Champion is not expected to defend his title until later this year.

This is likely another effort from WWE to try and get some heat on Lesnar so whenever he finally drops the title, people will cheer his opponent.

Brock Lesnar last defended the Universal Championship against Roman Reigns in a steel cage match at the Greatest Royal Rumble in April earlier this year.

    Right now it really don’t matter because as long as Braun Strowman is Mr Monster in the Bank it only a matter of time. He will be Unverlasial Champion very soon even though he should have already won it last fall.

    Lesnar seems to be working a part time part time schedule.

    Smeelllls like another tired attempt to get Reigns a cheer when they drop it to him. We won’t cheer am underserving win because we haven’t seen the title n a year….. More likely everyone will forget this pointless title and not watch the match. No noise means no heat. U want heat? Let Lesnar show, be evil, slam stars we love around, hate on the crowd and THEN not defend…….. With him just not here it creates indifference not animosity. Animosity means we show up and boo. . Indifference means lost ratings…

    The problem right now is they are doing this with the Universal title and promoting the IC belt as being more important due to Lesnars lack of matches, and by the time he does lose it people are actually going to say “Who cares? The IC title is more prestigious anyway”.

    They will end up shooting themselves in the foot as nobody will care who wins it.

    They may as well make a third world belt since we won’t ever see the real one ever again he basically stole it from the company

    “Oh, the title means more when it’s not defended often” Yea, when there’s an actual build to a match. No build, no heat. When a title is just not there then the title means nothing. The title means nothing. Let’s not forget that not one person who has held that belt has gotten a rematch after losing it, further devaluing it.

    OK seriously WWE? just strip the guy of the title. He can always claim he never lost it yadda yadda yadda just get this situation fixed already.
