Braun Strowman and Bray Wyatt.

Brock Lesnar could face either Braun Strowman or Bray Wyatt at SummerSlam

Published 2 Comments

After WrestleMania, the WWE's second biggest pay-per-view of the year is SummerSlam, and the rumors have already started to circulate as to what matches could take place at the event.

The event - set to take place at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York on August 21 - is bound to have some big storylines, with some of the most recent speculation suggesting the main focus of the show could be a possible brand split in the WWE.

Some potential matches have already been rumored, including a Women's Championship match for Sasha Banks, and a clash between Roman Reigns and John Cena, possibly for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship.

As for Brock Lesnar, according to DailyWrestling News, via the Inquisitr, he could be in a match the WWE Universe has been dying to see even before WrestleMania 32, against Bray Wyatt. However, he could also face another Wyatt Family member, Braun Strowman.

Many fans wanted to see The Beast take on the leader of The Wyatt Family at The Showcase of The Immortals, but Lesnar was booked for a No Holds Barred match against Dean Ambrose instead.

The WWE decided to book Lesnar and Wyatt in a one-on-one match at Roadblock before WrestleMania alternatively, but this was changed to a two-on-one handicap match instead, with Luke Harper joining Wyatt as The New Face of Fear had picked up an injury prior to the match and was being rested as a precaution.

As for Strowman, it was rumored he would face The Undertaker at WrestleMania before those plans were canceled following online backlash for the decision. It will be interesting to see if the WWE follows through with this plan as well, as they look to make Strowman into their next big star.

The Wyatt Family looks set to take on the League of Nations at Payback, and this will hopefully be the start of a big push for the group. However, they might have to do it without Bray Wyatt as he recently picked up a right calf injury during WWE's European tour and it is yet to be determined how long he will be out for.

The entire Wyatt Family is in need of a big push after being humiliated at WrestleMania by The Rock and John Cena. Bray Wyatt and Luke Harper are likely to be the most successful stars out of the group, but Strowman has big potential as well. A match and a win against Lesnar could do just that.

Despite these rumors, we still have four more pay-per-views to come before SummerSlam arrives - Payback, Extreme Rules, Money In The Bank, and Battleground - and the WWE has a history of constantly changing their plans due to injuries etc. so take this speculation with a pinch of salt, as neither one of these matches could happen.
