On Brock Lesnar Return at SummerSlam:
“Brock Lesner will be back in the ring for a debit of the premier summer show. It is not known who he will face. A match was originally set for Extreme rules that would have determined the next contender, but that was canceled as part of the storyline where negotiations for Lesnar. Next title defense fell through Roman reigns and Bobby Lashley who were the first to announce for the belt will instead battle in a singles match, which as of right now, we don’t even know if that’s supposed to be a number one contender’s match.
He has entered himself into the USADA testing pool. He cannot fight in UFC until early January. So there’s no rush to get the title off of the guy. He is contracted for one more show after Wrestlemania. WWE signed him to two events. One was the greatest royal rumble and one was to be determined and it looks like at this point that’s going to be SummerSlam. Now obviously they could sign him to another extension if they really want to fool people. If they want to not put the title in Roman reigns again, I don’t know what they’re going to do.”
On Undisputed Era vs. Mustache Mountain Match This week’s NXT:
“All I know is that match last night may have been the greatest NXT main event I’ve ever seen on the television show. Maybe not better than any takeover match. If I would not give it five stars, I’d have to watch it again. I thought that’s a five-star match right there. I don’t know if it was better than the Briscos in the books I’m talking to NXT. the last five minutes of that match was so incredible to me. The fans were living and dying in the last five minutes of that match. I think that this match was the best NXT match of the year. ”
