Paul Heyman called this match “bigger than WrestleMania.” At WWE Battleground, the Undertaker made his climactic return to WWE television and interrupted the match between Brock Lesnar and Seth Rollins. It was for the WWE World Heavyweight championship, and Lesnar was close to recapturing his crown. That was until the Undertaker showed up and cost him the match.
Since that moment, the WWE has continued to push for that match at SummerSlam and dubbed it as a main event that no WWE fan can miss. It’s a rematch that is over a year and a half in the making. Aside from his match at WrestleMania 31 against Bray Wyatt, the Undertaker has rarely been on WWE television.
Last night on WWE Raw, Brock Lesnar and Paul Heyman went out to address the Undertaker and did a masterful job at that. Heyman once again delivered another beautiful promo. All WWE fans are now wondering who will win at WWE SummerSlam.
According to Cageside Seats, a rumor is starting to develop about another match at WrestleMania 32 that may be the winner-take-all bout.
“As of now, the plan is apparently for Undertaker to get his win back over Brock Lesnar at SummerSlam and it could be what leads to another match at WrestleMania next year.”
This is where creative plans get complicated. While Brock Lesnar has been booked to be this unstoppable monster, the Undertaker is vengeful and wants to take out Lesnar. If they give Taker the win at SummerSlam, does Brock Lesnar just go away and take his normal hiatus until Royal Rumble?
His new WWE deal did include more dates, but it seems that Lesnar’s been on WWE TV more times in the past few months than the last year combined. In an earlier report by the Inquisitr, a rumor was analyzed on Paul Heyman turning on Lesnar and aligning himself with the Undertaker. That is very unlikely to happen, but that would write off Lesnar for several months.
With this storyline, anything could happen. Undertaker may lose at SummerSlam, come out on WWE Raw and call it quits. Before he leaves the ring, Sting enters the arena and challenges Taker to a final match at WrestleMania. Then, the WWE officials have a big conundrum. Who wins that match? Sting needs a WrestleMania win on his docket before retiring. Undertaker needs another monumental victory at WrestleMania. SummerSlam will provide foreshadowing for the next several months of WWE TV.
