Who’s ready to run it back for the umpteenth time?!
Following this week’s episode of SmackDown, WWE announced that we’ll once again be seeing Brock Lesnar facing off against Roman Reigns for the Undisputed Universal Championship.
The company posted a statement after the show, revealing that the long-time foes will be battling each other in a “Last Man Standing Match” at the 2022 WWE SummerSlam pay-per-view event, which takes place on July 30th.
For what it’s worth, the original plans called for Randy Orton vs. Roman Reigns to headline SummerSlam, but that has since been changed due to Orton being out with a back injury.

Roman Reigns vs. Brock Lesnar (Undisputed WWE Universal Title Last Man Standing Match)
The Beast is back, and he’s looking to knock Roman Reigns off the top of the WWE mountain.
The Head of the Table toppled Brock Lesnar at WrestleMania 38 to unify the titles and make history as the first-ever Undisputed WWE Universal Champion. In their first showdown of 2021, Reigns used an assist from Paul Heyman to battle off the title challenge from Lesnar at Crown Jewel. Now the two goliaths are set to clash for a third time in a Last Man Standing Match at SummerSlam.
The leader of The Bloodline successfully defended his Undisputed WWE Universal Championship against Riddle on the blue brand, but the return of Lesnar shook the WWE Universe to its core.
Who will stand above the wreckage when Reigns and Lesnar meet in Nashville at The Biggest Event of the Summer?
