Despite the upheavals due to Vince Mcmahon's resounding farewell, WWE has done a great job in recent weeks. Vince's place was taken by his daughter Stephanie and Nick Khan, while Triple H was put in charge of the creative team.
The 14-time world champion, who retired from wrestling shortly before Wrestlemania 38, has already given his creative touch to the shows and brought several stars back to WWE who had been released. SummerSlam, the biggest pay-per-view of the summer, was a success across the board.
The 'Biggest Party of the Summer', which took place less than a month ago at Nissan Stadium in Nashville, gave emotions and twists. Brock Lesnar shocked fans in the arena by literally demolishing the ring 'aboard' a tractor.
The Beast is experiencing one of the best moments of his entire career and his disagreements with the WWE Universe now seem a distant memory.

In the past, there were rumors of a possible arrival of Brock Lesnar in All Elite Wrestling.
According to Dave Meltzer, a well-known correspondent for the Wrestling Observer, these were unfounded rumors. “There have been a lot of rumors about Brock coming to AEW, but they didn't make sense to me. Lesnar was not and will never be the right profile for Tony Khan's company.
His appearances are too sporadic to justify such an investment. AEW cannot afford to bet everything on the Beast,” he said. Former WWE manager Jim Cornette was one of the few who did not like the SummerSlam main event: "If we analyze the quality of the match, which was valid for the world title, it was one of the worst matches I remember.
WWE, on the other hand, has hit the mark in terms of entertainment. Neither the contest nor the result was important, the goal was to get a very strong reaction from the public." AEW star Paul Wight (fka Big Show) recently reflected on his legendary rivalry with Brock Lesnar during the former's WWE stint.
“He was a great competitor, tremendous athlete, and again, he was one of those type of guys that comes along once in a generation, that kind of athlete, and he’s got such presence you know, I love that dude, he’s a great dude.
I never would have said this before and I don’t think you would have said it before, but Brock Lesnar is an absolute mastermind. He really is, and that’s something that I never saw coming. Never, especially from a guy that talked bulls**t about the business prior to getting into it, that he never would get into the fake wrestling thing”.
