This weekend in the main event of SummerSlam, Brock Lesnar will defend the Universal Championship once more against Roman Reigns.

The Big Dog is widely expected to win the match, and possibly walk out of WWE's biggest party of the summer as the new Universal Champion, much to the disappointment of some fans.

However, an out for WWE to avoid anger by fans at the end of the main event is to have Braun Strowman appear and use his Money in the Bank contract to win the Universal title.

Many fans would love to see WWE do this, as they can't stand seeing Reigns as champion, but WWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross is not one of these people.

Speaking on The Jim Ross Report, via Wrestling Inc, the legendary WWE commentator wants WWE to save The Monster Among Men's Money in the Bank cash in for another date, rather than use it at SummerSlam this Sunday.

Ross would much prefer to see Strowman cash in at WrestleMania 35 next year as he believes Strowman is the man in WWE and needs to be eternally over and anointed at WrestleMania.

He said: "Ain't going to happen. They've got the guy primed to be the man. And, quite frankly, what title in any company is hot right now? There's about a million of them. Pick you out one. Good luck on it."

Ross continued: "I think in time, and I do say this, now he [has] got the Money In The Bank briefcase, now he does, speaking of Strowman, throwing around that pronoun 'he'. I still think he should be anointed at WrestleMania.

"If you want a guy to be eternally over, in the sense of given the chance to be eternally over, you make the transition at WrestleMania. That's my looking at it. It doesn't get any bigger."

If Strowman was to cash in at WrestleMania, he would join Seth Rollins as one of only two superstars to have done so after The Architect cashed in his Money in the Bank contract at WrestleMania 31.
