Brock Lesnar’s SummerSlam Tractor Stunt Was Reportedly “Rougher And Harder” Than Planned
Brock Lesnar‘s tractor spot at Saturday’s SummerSlam pay-per-view in his match with Roman Reigns will certainly go down as one of the most memorable moments in recent WWE history.
Reigns and Lesnar met yet again in a Last Man Standing match for the Undisputed WWE Universal Championship. The latter drove out with a red tractor for his entrance, and he later used it to lift the ring while Reigns was in it. The Tribal Chief fell out of the ring, but he managed to avoid the 10-second count.
According to Mike Johnson of PWInsider.com, the tractor spot “was apparently far rougher and harder than anyone had planned for.” Johnson heard that WWE ran “at least one rehearsal for” that tractor spot, and that of the production team members actually practiced the tractor stunt on Friday.
Fortunately, no one was injured during the stunt. Reigns went on to defeat Lesnar thanks to some assistance from The Usos. The Bloodline buried The Beast Incarnate under a bunch of rubble to secure a victory for The Tribal Chief, who later surpassed the 700-day mark as the Universal Champion.
Reigns’ next title defense is scheduled for Clash at the Castle on Sept. 3. He’ll go up against former WWE Champion Drew McIntyre at the marquee show that will take place inside Principality Stadium in Cardiff, Wales.
What’s Next For Brock Lesnar?
Lesnar’s program with Reigns is over, and it could be a while until we see the 45-year-old back in action. But for what it’s worth, Lesnar is being advertised for the Day 1 pay-per-view that will run in Atlanta, Georgia in January. It’s quite possible that we won’t see Lesnar for the remainder of 2022, especially if Reigns remains the Undisputed WWE Universal Champion throughout the remainder of the year
But unless he’s pondering retirement (and there are no signs of that), we’ll likely see Lesnar return by early 2023 ahead of WrestleMania 39 season. We’ll just have to wait and see how everything plays out.
