What were the real plans for the SummerSlam main event?

SummerSlam 2021 ended with a real 'bang' that literally shocked wrestling fans all over the world. The Main Event saw a great match between reigning champion Roman Reigns and John Cena, wrestling legend and currently wrestler and now Hollywood star.

In this long match, the Leader of the Chain Gang tried in every way, but in the end, he had to surrender to the Tribal Chief who once again (as has been happening for about a year now) came out the winner and still with the belt.

This time the joy on the face of the WWE Universal Champion and the Mad Genius and his adviser Paul Heyman lasted very few seconds; in fact, the music resounded and the audience exploded for the return of Brock Lesnar. The wrestler is back with a new look (for some he has even been compared to a Viking) and after months of waiting and almost always unfounded rumors the legendary wrestler this time is back and is back to challenge the WWE Tribal Chief.

In this way, WWE wanted to give an important answer to All Elite Wrestling which, just a few hours ago, brought Rampage a great comeback in Wrestling as CM Punk.

SummerSlam: Becky Lynch and Brock Lesnar are finally back

During the Mat Men Pro Wrestling podcast, Andrew Zarian clarified the reason for Brock Lesnar's return, explaining that it was a strong response from WWE to CM Punk's AEW debut.

Zarian made it clear that in this way the WWE again had the hype necessary for the event and it was given more prominence than the return of the Straight Edge. Now many are wondering what Paul Heyman, a director of Reigns but the former manager of The Beast Incarnate, will do.

After more than 16 months Brock Lesnar is back and fans can't wait to see him at work against Roman Reigns, who is currently the main WWE wrestler and the main attraction of the company. Damian Priest made history last night at SummerSlam when he defeated Sheamus.

In doing so, he became the first Puerto Rican Superstar in WWE history to win the United States Championship. Priest was able to pick up the win with Hit The Lights, after fighting his way out of the Figure Four Leg Lock, by using Sheamus' facial injury against him.

Following Priest's victory, he headed backstage to be interviewed by Tiffany Haddish. The guest interviewer then went on to botch twice in her promo when she made the mistake of calling it "The SummerSlam"
