Maybe next time. We are just over two months away from Summerslam and WWE needs to be settling down on plans for a card. It is time to get things ready for the show and that is a little hard to do without having a main event ready. Summerslam is one of the biggest shows of the year and it would make sense to have a stacked card. Now we might know what one of the main events will not be.

According to Dave Meltzer on the Sunday Night’s Main Event podcast, a match between Brock Lesnar and WWE Champion Bobby Lashley is currently not being planned for Summerslam. Lesnar is not currently under contract to WWE and as of last week, Vince McMahon himself had not been in contact with him. In addition, WWE may only bring Lesnar back when Roman Reigns is able to feud with him, though it is not clear when that would be the case.

There are some possibilities here. Check out what Lesnar could do:

Bobby Lashley wants to challenge Brock Lesnar (WWE Network Exclusive)

FULL MATCH - Brock Lesnar vs. Roman Reigns - Universal Title Match: SummerSlam 2018

FULL MATCH - Brock Lesnar vs. Samoa Joe – Universal Title Match: WWE Great Balls of Fire 2017

Opinion: I would be stunned if Lesnar does not show up again at some point in the future, but I’m also not sure if I need to see him face Reigns ever again. That feud was pushed so hard before and almost any interest it might have is gone. Then again there is the Paul Heyman element to consider this time and that could make for an interesting story. Lesnar is probably going to be back, but it would be nice for WWE to come up with something great for him to do.

Do you think Lesnar will be back? Who would you like to see him face? Let us know in the comments below.
