WWE reportedly changes plan for Lesnar vs. Reigns

Aug 22, 2021 - by Steve Gerweck

Brock Lesnar made his big return to WWE during SummerSlam and he stood face-to-face with Roman Reigns. The two will seemingly battle soon, but that was not the original plan.

Dave Meltzer noted on Wrestling Observer Radio that WWE moved up Reigns vs Lesnar. Their original intention was to run that match for WrestleMania in 2023. Now it appears that they are pulling the trigger a bit sooner.

    An expected knee-jerk reaction to help combat the coverage of Punk joining AEW the night before.

    Only marks would believe a guy living in Canada would be brought back last minute cuz cm punk. I mean really… at what point does any logic kick in. Brock was signed long ago and summerslam is their biggest ppv besides mania. No. Gotta be punk cuz 1 million ppl prob tuned in to watch while smackdown draws triple the amount.

    Looks like we’ve found our resident die hard WWE mark in Jon. The Punk news has been known for weeks. Plenty of time to bring Lesnar in early.

    You have to have blinders to think that the combination of this and hot-shotting the title to Becky wasn’t in reaction to what happened Friday night. Don’t be shocked if WWE also tries to get Goldberg under a new deal as well.
