– Paul Heyman Lobbying For Brock Lesnar To Drop The Universal Title To Samoa Joe At SummerSlam 2017
According to Sports Illustrated, Paul Heyman is lobbying for Brock Lesnar to drop the Universal Title to Samoa Joe in the Fatal 4 Way match at SummerSlam 2017. Heyman announced on this week’s Raw that if Lesnar loses the Universal Title at SummerSlam 2017, then he’ll leave WWE. It is being speculated that this was done to give a reason for Lesnar’s long absence from WWE programming if he decides to return to UFC for the rumored super-fight against UFC Light Heavyweight Champion Jon Jones and the months of training that’ll be required for Lesnar to get ready to fight in the Octagon once again.
While there’s a big chance that the super-fight between Lesnar and Jones would indeed happen, the date for that fight is hard to predict at this moment. Some sources are reporting that UFC wants Lesnar to fight at their December PPV so that they end the year of a high note (as Lesnar is a huge PPV draw) and Lesnar’s remaining 5 months of USADA suspension will be over by then as well. On the other hand, some sources speculate that WWE won’t allow Lesnar to fight in the UFC before WrestleMania 34 as a possible injury to Lesnar in a fight could possibly ruin WWE’s Royal Rumble 2018 and WrestleMania 34 plans for Lesnar.
