The Beast is back!
In the main event of SmackDown on June 17, Roman Reigns defeated Riddle to retain his Undisputed Universal Championship. After the match, he grabbed a microphone and exclaimed that there is no one left for him to beat. Roman reminds everyone that he said he would smash everyone and leave, and that's exactly what he's done. Just then, surprisingly, Brock Lesnar's music hit.
Lesnar came to the ring and extended his hand to Roman, signifying that The Tribal Chief has earned his respect, but Roman seemed hesitant to reciprocate. After a minute, Reigns decided to shake Brock's hand but was immediately scooped up by Lesnar and hit with an F5. The Usos then jumped in the ring but were disposed of quickly.
It was announced online shortly after SmackDown went off the air that Roman and Brock will face off at SummerSlam on July 30 in a Last Man Standing Match for the Undisputed Universal Championship. Lesnar hasn't been seen since his loss to Roman Reigns at WrestleMania 38 where they competed in a Title vs. Title Match to crown an Undisputed Champion.
JUST ANNOUNCED: @BrockLesnar will challenge @WWERomanReigns for the Undisputed WWE Universal Title in a Last Man Standing Match at #SummerSlam! @HeymanHustle— WWE (@WWE) June 18, 2022
