Brock Lesnar returns to WWE on August 21st for WWE's 'Biggest Party of the Summer' and even though The Company look set to announce his opponent for SummerSlam at tonight's Smackdown tapings, it seems that Lesnar's next victim could have already been leaked. 

Reddit user MisterKnowItAll has once again surfaced online and the man that leaked the return of Shane McMahon back in February has stated that Lesnar's opponent will be none other than the returning Viper, Randy Orton. 

The former Legend Killer has been out of action for almost a year after a shoulder injury and following successful shoulder surgery it could be announced on Smackdown that he will make his return for what will be a career defining match.

It would be incredibly poetic of WWE to allow these two former World Champions to collide at SummerSlam especially since it's the event that both superstars became the youngest ever world champion. 

Brock defeated The Rock at SummerSlam in 2002 to become the youngest ever World Champion at just 25 years old before Randy Orton broke the record just two years later at SummerSlam in 2004 when he defeated Chris Benoit at just 24 years old. 

Despite the fact that these two superstars have had long tenures in WWE they have never actually faced each other at a pay-per-view and have only ever collided once. This match saw Lesnar easily pick up the win after an incredible F5, will Orton suffer the same fate again?


The WWE Universe would be happy to see Randy Orton return but the size of the task at hand may be to much for The Apex Predator given Brock Lesnar's record at SummerSlam. 

It was only two short year's ago that Brock delivered 16 German Suplex's to John Cena to win the WWE World Heavyweight Championship. He then had an incredible showdown with The Undertaker last year in what was deemed 'The match too big for WrestleMania' and it just about delivered on that. 

Brock Lesnar will be returning from UFC and either a win or a loss to Mark Hunt on July 9th and it could be a way for him to extract some revenge on someone for the outcome. If Randy Orton is the one who is revealed to be Brock's opponent then he could be in the wrong place at the wrong time in just seven weeks time.

He could also be Brock's biggest test and it could be the match of the night, there is a fine line here but it seems WWE look set to gamble.
