A promo video, highlighting the main event of SummerSlam, has been leaked online.

The video declares that John Cena, will defend his title against Brock Lesnar, in what should be an epic contest.

With this reveal, it also tells us that Cena will retain his title at this Sunday's coming PPV - Battle Ground - where he defends in a fatal-four-way, that includes Roman Reigns.

Several leaks

This isn't the first time that the WWE have given away plans for this very event, with amazon leaking the DVD cover of the PPV, again with Cena and Lesnar depicted on the front.

In the leaked video, Lesnar's career highlights are paid homage to, whilst Cena receives his standard praise. They also include highlights from the clash these two had at Extreme Rules 2012.

The seed's of Lesnar's return have been planted in the last month or so, and was made explicitly obvious when Heyman did not emerge with his most recent client - Cesaro - on Monday Night RAW.

Lesnar returning

Heyman and Cesaro's partnership hasn't official ended, but been put on a hiatus, so the WWE can give the SummerSlam main event enough hype to draw in the viewers.

Triple H has made reference to his "Plan B" on WWE television recently, but this is more than likely to be Seth Rollins and his 'Money in the Bank' contract, Heyman mentioned his "Plan C" - which is almost defiantly Lesnar.

Both graduated from the "OVW class of 2002" and have gone on to be some of the biggest names in the industry. Cena and Lesnar last met at Extreme Rules in 2012, and put on one of most brutal matches of the PG era, it has gone down as a modern classic.

What if?

Lesnar is expected to triumph at SummerSlam, after all he is fresh off the back of defeating the Undertaker's infamous streak, so anything other than a victory could almost be seen as a slight to the Undertaker.

If he does win questions will be asked on how long he will hold the title, as the nature of his contract restricts his WWE appearances, and he wouldn't defend his title at House Shows - much like the Rock during his title reign.

There has been talk of Lesnar dropping the title back to Cena at "Night of Champions", in a bid to boost WWE Network subscriptions when it becomes live in Europe, meaning his reign would be a short one.

But there is talk of Lesnar holding the title through to April, with him going one-on-one with Roman Reigns, in a feud that seems set in stone.

Until any of them possibilities can happen, Lesnar must get through the current champ in John Cena at SummerSlam.
