• SmackDown Live Star To Make SummerSlam 2018 Announcement Tonight
WWE posted the following:
What is The Miz’s SummerSlam announcement?
“Daniel Bryan issued a SummerSlam challenge to The Miz on Tuesday, but he was rebuked by The A-Lister, who mocked him with a barrage of insults and an onslaught of crying baby videos. The Awesome One reiterated his stance on Saturday, stating clearly that “the answer is no,” as he believes he deserves better than a match with Daniel Bryan.

However, The A-Lister revealed on Monday that he will be making his SummerSlam announcement today.
I know my worth, I've heard @WWEDanielBryan and "#SDLive Management's" offer … but I will NOT compete for anything less than I am worth. That said, I will make MY #SummerSlam announcement tomorrow. On my terms.

• Vince McMahon Could Pull Another Shocker At SummerSlam 2018
The Wrestling Observer recently noted that Universal Champion Brock Lesnar leaving WWE after SummerSlam 2018 isn’t a guarantee at this point.
It could be possible that Vince McMahon signs Lesnar to a short extension after SummerSlam 2018 (especially since WWE will be doing major shows like Super Show-Down in Australia in October and then once again in Saudi Arabia after that).
Wrestling Observer pointed out how Vince McMahon is a man that can offer Brock more money than UFC (especially after their $2 Billion TV deals for RAW & SmackDown Live) and delay Brock’s UFC fight with Daniel Cormier for the UFC Heavyweight Championship.
Also, Vince could pull another shocker at SummerSlam 2018 (like he did at WrestleMania 34) by booking Lesnar to retain the Universal Title once again, especially since Lesnar is a hot commodity right now (with all the mainstream media attention he has been getting since his appearance at UFC 226 PPV).
Below is the statement from Wrestling Observer (thanks to Ringsidenews for transcription):
“If Vince wants to keep him and show everyone that, ‘hey I outbid UFC for this guy’ and ‘I screwed UFC out of this championship’ and don’t ever think that Vince isn’t that guy, cause that’s Vince. The idea that that guy went on that big show and did that big angle and he’s not gonna do it, I mean that’s Vince — Vince lives for that stuff.
Brock signed a 3 months contract, a 2 fight deal with WWE and it’s due again. I’m sure if Brock has his way he’ll sign another 3-month deal and tell UFC, ‘hey I’m gonna do this again, just a couple more things.’ He very well may lose the championship [at SummerSlam] but if he doesn’t I wouldn’t be surprised.”
