For several weeks now, WWE has been hyping the idea that this Sunday’s pay-per-view, which features Brock Lesnar vs. The Undertaker as its main-event, will be the biggest and best SummerSlam show of all-time. That remains to be seen, but there’s no question that the rematch between Lesnar and The Undertaker seems a lot bigger than their previous encounter 16 months ago, and barring injury, the match between the two should be much better than the match that they had at WrestleMania 30.
Monday’s RAW was the last face-to-face meeting between Lesnar and The Undertaker before the two square off at SummerSlam, and it saw “The Phenom” getting the better of Lesnar once again, and since the show was taking place in Lesnar’s billed hometown of Minneapolis, Minnesota, The Undertaker was booed during his attack on Lesnar.
After receiving a low-blow, chokeslam, and a tombstone piledriver from “The Deadman,” Brock Lesnar got up on his feet after RAW went off the air and proceeded to grab the microphone, which is rare, and verbally respond to The Undertaker’s attack. He didn’t say much, but he did promise to take The Undertaker to Suplex City, which got a huge response from the Minneapolis crowd.
Nobody really knows exactly what’s going to happen this Sunday night, but there have been two scenarios that have been thrown out there, and both lead to a third match between Lesnar and Undertaker at WrestleMania 32. The first scenario would see Undertaker picking up the win, which would setup an obvious rubber match between the two next spring. The second would see Lesnar defeating Undertaker yet again, which would force “The Deadman” to go away for a while, only to return to challenge Lesnar to a match at WrestleMania 32, saying that he plans on retiring after the event, and that he wants one last crack at “The Beast” before he rides into the sunset.
Some fans have been trying to figure out who is the heel and who is the babyface in this feud, but, WWE is expecting a 50/50 reaction from the live crowd during the Lesnar vs. Undertaker match, which is why they haven’t made either guy a full-fledged heel, although, Undertaker has been acting a lot more heel-ish than Lesnar has, as he’s hit “The Beast” with two low-blows since his return.
In case you somehow haven’t heard, this Sunday’s SummerSlam is a four-hour event, starting at 7 p.m. eastern time, 4 p.m. pacific, and it’s available on pay-per-view, and of course, on the WWE Network for just $9.99.
