SummerSlam is now just 10 days away so WWE's main focus will be on Brooklyn right now - but that doesn't mean the company isn't planning a few things for later on this year. 

August's pay-per-view will be the second biggest event of the year, behind only WrestleMania. 

Therefore, there's probably going to be a lot of fallout. In fact, it seems that Vince McMahon has something big in store for two stars in particular. 

THE UNIVERSAL TITLE 

On August 19, Brock Lesnar will defend his Universal Championship against Roman Reigns. 

Now, it's common knowledge that this will almost certainly be The Beast's final match in WWE for a while - as he plans on returning to UFC.

As that's the case, it's pretty likely that he'll be dropping RAW's top prize - and The Big Dog is expected to finally get his hands on it. 

FUTURE PLANS

Interestingly, according to The Wrestling Observer Newsletter, WWE are apparently already planning a massive feud that will take place in the near future - one that could involve the title. 

WON report, per Still Real To Us, that the current plan for RAW Live shows this autumn is to have Reigns and Braun Strowman in the main event.

It's likely that those matches will carry over to TV - and this is interesting for a number of reasons. 

MAIN EVENT MATCHES

These two superstars are consistently in the title picture, so it's pretty safe to assume that by the time they meet in a few months, one will be holding the Universal Championship.

Who that will be is not clear - Roman has a shot at Lesnar's title in 10 days time, while Braun holds the Money in the Bank briefcase... at least, he does at the moment.

But the belt involved isn't the only thing that makes this feud interesting.

A LIKELY HEEL TURN 

If Strowman and Reigns are going head-to-head later this year, then surely one of them will need to turn heel.

WWE doesn't usually have face vs face matches - and WON believe this is a strong indication that either one should be turning soon.

Who that is though, remains to be seen.
