It looks like WWE has some surprising plans in store for Roman Reigns v Brock Lesnar at SummerSlam.
Brock Lesnar returned to WWE last month, confronting longtime rival Roman Reigns on the June 17 episode of Friday Night SmackDown.
WWE announced shortly afterwards that in a rematch of WrestleMania 38, Reigns will defend his Undisputed WWE Universal Championship against Lesnar at SummerSlam.
The match, which will take place on Saturday night, is billed as the final clash between the two rivals, who have played six previous one-on-one matches against each other.
However, this one to come could be the biggest match yet as it is contested under Last Man Standing rules.
Many fans expect Reigns to win the match and continue his record-breaking reign at the top of the roster, but it seems WWE has other plans in store.
Reddit user BigUllie shared a photo of the latest Brock Lesnar action figure released by Mattel, which could spoil the outcome of the big title contest.
WWE and Mattel are releasing a series of Lesnar figures, both of which will be accompanied by both the Universal and WWE Championships.
Some consider this a possible spoiler for the match, with the belief that WWE will release the figure to celebrate Lesnar’s big win on Saturday night.

It goes without saying that this is just speculation at this stage, and as one of WWE’s top stars, the decision could have been made to release a figure of Lesnar with the titles.
The timing is interesting, though, and as Lesnar will be competing for the titles this weekend, he could very well win both titles.
It’s also worth noting that Lesnar never had the blue Universal title, so it’s not even like WWE is releasing the figure to celebrate its past title wins.
It’s also worth noting that this figure came out ahead of the announcement that Triple H will take over as head of Creative for WWE.
Since all booking decisions are now made by him, it’s not out of the question to think that ‘The Game’ could have plans of its own for the finish of Lesnar v Reigns XII.
There was even a concern that, after Vince McMahon’s retirement, this match might not even take place, which you can read more about by clicking here. Fortunately, however, we now know that it is still planned.
