On the main event of Summer Slam 2021, Tribal Chief Roman Reigns successfully defended his Universal Championship against John Cena. Following the match, The Beast Incarnate Brock Lesnar made his long-awaited return to WWE and had a stare down with Roman Reigns and Paul Heyman.

But this wasn’t the WWE’s orginal plans for Brock Lesnar. On the latest edition of Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer reported that WWE’s orginal plans are Roman Reigns to defend his Universal Championship against Brock Lesnar at WrestleMania 39, which set to take place in Inglewood, California in 2023.
However, WWE moved Brock Lesnar’s return to Summer Slam and he would likely to Roman Reigns at WWE Survivor Series or the recently announced Crown Jewel pay-per-view in Saudi Arabia.

Brock Lesnar last WWE appearance came at WrestleMania 36, in which he lost his WWE Championship to Drew McIntyre. Following that, Lesnar returned back now at Summer Slam event. Previously, Andrew Zarian of Mat Men Wrestling Podcast reported that Brock Lesnar’s return to WWE is a answer to CM Punk’s AEW debut the night before on Rampage. 
CM Punk’s return to pro-wrestling and signing with AEW is huge but WWE countered all that hype with Brock Lesnar’s return and massive confrontation with Roman Reigns and his former advocate Paul Heyman.
