Brock Lesnar Summerslam 2018

With Extreme Rules 2018 mercifully in the rear-view, WWE are already looking forward to their next pay-per-view, SummerSlam, which takes place on 19 August.

The only concrete bout announced so far is Raw Women's Champion Alexa Bliss vs. Ronda Rousey, which was confirmed earlier this week, but we do know that Brock Lesnar will defend his Universal Title.

Roman Reigns and Bobby Lashley shall collide for the chance to face Lesnar on next week's Raw. According to, current plans call for Brock to fight both, so expect shenanigans when Bobby and Roman meet.


SmackDown General Manage Paige announced earlier this week that AJ Styles will put his WWE Championship on the line at SummerSlam, but didn't name an opponent. According to Cageside Seats, this will be Samoa Joe, whom 'The Phenomenal One' is already advertised to face at Hell In A Cell (16 September).

Finally, despite constant speculation linking him to a rematch with John Cena, The Undertaker isn't currently confirmed to compete. This is according to the Wrestling Observer's Dave Meltzer, who notes that while there's a lot of talk surrounding 'The Deadman's' participation, the Cena clash is far from set in stone.
