WWE SummerSlam and WrestleMania 34 main event plans reportedly changed

We have all seen the rumors regarding apparent plans for a WrestleMania 34 match between Brock Lesnar and Roman Reigns — a rematch from WrestleMania 31 — however it seems plans for that event and SummerSlam are now likely to change with the emergence of Braun Strowman and his rise in popularity.

According to the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, Roman Reigns will face Brock Lesnar at SummerSlam, which is why the Big Dog challenged the winner of Lesnar/Joe on Raw recently. This will pave the way for a Roman Reigns vs. John Cena main event at WrestleMania 34.

These plans could obviously change, but the above does raise a lot of questions – what will happen with Samoa Joe? Is Braun Strowman likely to be sacrificed in a feud with Roman Reigns he looked like winning?

Plenty to think about…

    I just had this silly idea we may see a Cena vs Lesnar rematch for the Universal Championship at Summerslam. I know we don’t want to see another Cena title run. But I don’t think the WWE can have the Universal title on Lesner in the fall. For me I rather have the Universal title on Cena then a Part Timer.

    It could, but they also could start a program that could build up to a bigger pay-off at Wrestlemania.

  • Thomas Murray

    have a crossover match with Owens ?

  • Rob ‘Richard Hammond’ Picken

    Wow all of those ideas sound horrible…

    How about making joe/lesnar a series and have match 2 at SummerSlam or Survivor Series and number 3 at mania?

    Then have the likes of AJ Styles, Fin Balor, Bray Wyatt, Ziggler, Nakamura and so on in the undercard

    Should have Lesnar narrowly escaped Joe, then have Strowman win at summerslam. Puts him over further, let him have the Balor Rollins Wyatt throw away matches, lose to Reigns at Survivor Series. Makes Reigns look like he beaten the unbeatable with only Cena in his way. Strowman Lesnar at mania

    If that’s the case, I just hope they don’t do this two years in row with Cena beating Reigns at this mania then the following year, Reigns redeems his loss. Not going to lie, I’ll be pulling Reigns all the way. Glad to see him finally acting heelish although he’s obviously a tweener.

  • D2K

    I think Joe should go to Smackdown. He seems out of place on RAW for some reason. That being said, I do think a feud with him and the Miz would be entertaining. particularly on the mic.

    You think they’ll hold Angle-HHH until then? I could see it happening at Summerslam.

  • Kristopher Robinson

    Give Joe the IC title at Mania at least.

  • D2K

    I’d rather see (Demon King)Balor-Wyatt. I’m not sure what to do with Joe.

  • Brad Grillakis

    joe gotta be there….who u got facing him? Balor?

  • Nicholas Giambattista

    So it basically looks like John Cena looks to be coming back to Monday night Raw.

  • D2K


    If Cena wanted to take full advantage of that an re-galvanize himself as a popular tweener/face, that would be the PERFECT time for him to integrate at least some attributes of his Dr. of Thuganomics gimmick but modernized. His career could be reborn easily with that tweak and no heel turn would be necessary.

    Already the potential WM34 card looks promising.

    Lesnar-Strowman (assuming they can hold off until then)

    These are just suppositions of course.

  • We hate Reigns more.

  • D2K

    I’ll take that over Lesnar-Reigns II. That should be VERY interesting. Who do the smarks loathe more? Cena or Reigns?
