• Disappointing SummerSlam 2023 Update

WWE fans that are going to attend SummerSlam 2023 at Ford Field in Detroit, Michigan on August 5th are going to be disappointing if they read a recent report.

WRKD Wrestling recently reported that WWE is discussing Lesnar vs. Gunther for this summer:

“While Gunther has publicly stated during interviews that he’d like a match with Brock Lesnar, the idea has been floated backstage to potentially have them face off sometime this summer.”

In an update, RSN is reporting that Lesnar vs. Gunther isn’t planned for SummerSlam 2023:

“We were told by a tenured member of the WWE creative team, who knows the plan for Brock Lesnar, that ‘it’s not Lesnar vs Gunther’. We were told that ‘the writing team already knows SummerSlam’. That being said ‘Lesnar not working with Gunther this summer’.”

The Wrestling Observer added:

“Right now there are no plans for Lesnar vs. Gunther at SummerSlam or Lesnar vs. Gunther any time soon. Of course that can change because it is a viable match, but if Lesnar is scheduled on SummerSlam there is already a direction that isn’t Gunther.”

During the Men’s Royal Rumble 2023 match, Lesnar and Gunther squared off, but they didn’t do much, as Bobby Lashley soon entered and began brawling with Lesnar.

Lesnar vs. Gunther was originally planned for WrestleMania 39, but Vince McMahon told Triple H to book Lesnar vs. Omos.

At WrestleMania 39, Lesnar defeated Omos. On the other hand, Gunther defeated Drew McIntyre and Sheamus in a Triple Threat Match to continue his dominant Intercontinental Championship reign.
