WWE news on a huge match that has been rumored for SummerSlam



Bobby Lashley is back in WWE and that opens up a list of potential "first-time ever" dream matches for him. Lashley vs. Roman Reigns and Lashley vs. Braun Strowman are just a couple of matches that fans might be interested in seeing.

A few weeks ago, we mentioned the possibility of a Brock Lesnar vs. Bobby Lashley match at SummerSlam. Before he signed with WWE, Lashley said that he would like a match with Lesnar and there had been talk in that direction for this year.

However, as reported by the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, there are currently no plans in place for that match. The match seems less likely now because Lesnar is on a short-term deal with WWE.

Lashley is in great shape and looks much younger than 41 but it might not make sense for a match with Lesnar. If Lesnar is going to lose on the way out then it probably makes more sense for him to lose to a future top star.

Things can always change if Lesnar signs another short-term deal but, at this point, if he still plans on fighting with UFC, that seems unlikely.
