After previous meetings this year at WrestleMania 34 and the Greatest Royal Rumble, Brock Lesnar will once again defend the Universal Championship against Roman Reigns next weekend at SummerSlam.
This is expected to be The Beast's last match in the WWE as he looks set to leave the company after the event and return to UFC once more.
Due to his departure, it is widely expected as well that Lesnar will drop the Universal title to Reigns in the main event of WWE's biggest party of the summer.
15 years ago at SummerSlam, it was a different story for The Beast, as he lost a WWE Championship match against current Monday Night Raw general manager Kurt Angle.
Angle vs Lesnar
Angle recently reminded everyone about that SummerSlam match on his Instagram account with a picture of himself and Lesnar holding onto the WWE title.
Angle said in the post's caption: "15 years ago at WWE Summerslam, I defeated Brock Lesnar for the WWE World Championship. It was a barn burner. I fought aggressively to win this match."
It's time for a new champion
In the same post, the Raw general manager also commented on The Beast's title match at this year's SummerSlam vs Reigns, stating how he believes 'it’s time for a new champion'.
He said: "15 years later, Roman Reigns has the opportunity to tame the “Beast”. I Hope he does. It’s time for a new champion on Monday Night Raw. #itstrue #Summerslam #universalchampionship"
As Angle mentioned, he won his match vs Lesnar 15 years ago via submission. It will be interesting to see if Reigns is able to pick up the same result next weekend, although WWE has plenty of other options if they don't want The Big Dog walking out of SummerSlam as Universal Champion.
One option could be that they have the Money in the Bank briefcase holder cash in and claim the title. This will be either Braun Strowman or Kevin Owens, depending on who wins their match earlier in the event.
Another option, and one that could surprise many fans, is to have Lesnar retain the title. This is an unlikely option if Lesnar is leaving WWE for UFC for good, but it isn't cemented in stone that The Beast is departing immediately.
