• The Rock’s Possible WrestleMania 35 Plans Could Cause Major Changes To Tonight’s SummerSlam 2018 PPV
The Dirty Sheets has released an important backstage update which could mean a lot of major changes for tonight’s SummerSlam 2018 PPV.
The Dirty Sheets revealed that the original plan for tonight’s SummerSlam 2018 PPV is for Braun Strowman to successfully cash-in his Money In The Bank contract and walk out of tonight’s PPV as the new Universal Champion.
This would then lead to a Hell In A Cell match between Reigns & Strowman for the Title at the next PPV, Hell In A Cell 2018.
We previously noted that Roman Reigns vs. Kevin Owens is currently advertised for Hell In A Cell 2018 PPV. This was seen as an attempt by WWE officials to throw away the fans from their real plan, but it looks like this could indeed be happening.
Dirty Sheets noted that talks between WWE & The Rock regarding an in-ring return are increasing day by day and this could result in some major changes for tonight’s show.
While it’s not 100% confirmed that The Rock has agreed to work WrestleMania 35, but word going on is that he will.
With that being said, the plan that WWE officials look forward to implementing if The Rock agrees for a return is the following:
– Kevin Owens somehow manages to defeat Braun Strowman to win the Money In The Bank contract tonight.
– Owens cashes-in on Roman Reigns at SummerSlam 2018 itself to win the Title and become the first ever two time Universal Champion.
– Owens will hold on to the Title for the rest of 2018.
– At Royal Rumble 2019, The Rock will face Kevin Owens and will defeat Owens to become the Universal Champion (similar to the what happened back in 2013 between him and CM Punk).
– At WrestleMania 35, The Rock will face Roman Reigns and will drop the Title to Reigns in what could be The Great One’s final match.
