Major Summerslam match cancelled

WWE Summerslam will be taking place this Sunday and the company was building towards a match between Roman Reigns and Daniel Bryan for the event. However, it seems that match will not be happening anymore.

According to a report by PW Insider, owing to the fact that WWE was unable to conclude the storyline between Roman Reigns and Daniel Bryan, their match will not be taking place at Summerslam.

Originally, the Summerslam card was to have featured Roman Reigns against Daniel Bryan, but the word making the rounds at TV last night was that the bout will likely be dropped in order to let the current storyline play out.

The blame for the attacks on Roman Reigns fell on Rowan this past week on Smackdown Live. However, this direction is not concrete yet according to the report.

It is expected that the two will continue to feud past Summerslam, so they will have a match at a later pay-per-view. It will be interesting to see how WWE further develops their feud.

    You can’t cancel something that was never official to begin with.

    If it isn’t mentioned on WWE TV, I don’t consider it cannon. I have better things to do in my life than follow WWE and all their employees across 5 different social media sites.

  • Kayfabe_Is_Dead

    Lots of big names not on this card. Could have at least had Reigns vs Joe.

    Rumours are Reigns vs Murphy is gonna be the match we see.

  • CC

    Well if the sparring back and forwards on twitter is anything to go by, Reigns will be facing Murphy.

    How can a match that was never announced be cancelled?
    Simple fact is it was always speculation, and right now we still do not know if Bryan is actually guilty, and could just be WWE trolling the dirtsheets.
    They were unable to conclude the story? What do they mean “unable”? If they had wanted to conclude it they would have. They knew exactly how many shows were before Summerslam when they started it, and they knew how to lay the story out if they wanted the match.

    I call 100% BS on this story.

    It was never announced, how can it be cancelled?

  • Will Henderson

    instead of fucking around with a storyline that happened late in the build to SummerSlam, they should had Reigns vs. Samoa Joe instead, but no, Vince had to nix the damn thing cause he must hate Samoa Joe.

  • Dub Blue

    Yet another reason why Vince needs to go. I am no Reigns fan, but to not have a match for your golden child is totally unacceptable.

  • Mike Lamarche

    You have the biggest ppv of the summer and you can’t even get “your guy on the card”.
