Brock Lesnar is taking a break from his part-time WWE career at present as he prepares for a return to the UFC octagon at next month's UFC 200 pay-per-view.
Barring any serious injury during his match against Mark Hunt, The Beast Incarnate will, though, be back in the WWE's squared circle come August's SummerSlam event.
Considering the hype that will surround Lesnar's return after his UFC fling, the WWE have a huge opportunity to give fans something special at SummerSlam. According to one rumour today about a potential opponent for the big man, they look set to do just that.

As reported by Wrestling Rumours and Ring Talkk, the WWE are lining up Kevin Owens as Brock Lesnar's opponent for the August PPV - a dream match for many within the WWE Universe.
Owens, with his no-thrills style and relentless work ethic, has often been considered one of the only Superstars on the main roster who could legitimately put up a decent challenge against 'The Beast'.
Having KO get his shot at SummerSlam - with Lesnar coming off the back of a very real brawl in the UFC octagon - is an exciting prospect to say the least.
With previous speculation having touted a Lesnar vs Bray Wyatt fight, the latest rumour will please a lot more WWE fans that is for sure.
It does, though, potentially mean Owens fans will have to wait even longer to see their man in the main title picture.
If a SummerSlam bout was the beginning of a feud between the two wrestlers, it would take both out of the running for the title.
Unless, of course, rumours of separate titles for RAW and SmackDown are correct. If that is the case, then maybe a win for either man at SummerSlam would be enough to get them in the running for the second belt.
