Let us take a look at the top 8 WWE News (including SummerSlam 2016) & Professional Wrestling stories of the hour:
8. Brock Lesnar Returning On The Draft Edition of WWE SmackDown
“The Beast Incarnate” Brock Lesnar is currently scheduled to return to WWE programming on the July 19th live edition of WWE SmackDown which will feature the Draft. Lesnar was last seen on WWE Programming at WrestleMania 32 where he destroyed Dean Ambrose.
It will be interesting to see how WWE will handle the booking of Brock Lesnar if he loses at UFC 200.
7. How Many WWE Special Events Are Planned For 2017?
As of now, word is that WWE will produce 20 special events in 2017 due to the Brand Split. As we have noted before, there will be brand exclusive PPVs and each month will feature 2 PPVs – one for Raw and one for SmackDown (except the original 4: Royal Rumble, WrestleMania, SummerSlam, Survivor Series).
Speaking of Brand Split, former NXT Champion Finn Balor and former NXT Tag Team Champions American Alpha are expected to come up to the main roster. Former NXT Women’s Champion Bayley’s main roster call-up might not happen until NXT Takeover: Back To Brooklyn (which takes place during SummerSlam 2016 weekend).
