Lesnar sent shockwaves through the wrestling world when he finally made his return to WWE after a 17-month absence from the company, confronting Roman Reigns at SummerSlam after he successfully defended the Universal Championship in a gruelling match against Cena.

In the ring, the ‘Beast’ went face to face with the the ‘Head of the Table’, with the two exchanging words before Reigns left the ring with Heyman in tow, leaving Lesnar stalking the ring to close the ‘Biggest Party of the Summer’.

Multiple fans in attendance have now reported that, following the cameras going off, Cena was finally able to stumble back to his feet, only to be met with multiple suplexes and an F5 for his troubles in a scene reminiscent of the pairs’ encounter at the 2014 edition SummerSlam where Lesnar dominated Cena to become the WWE Champion.
Brock Lesnar returning wasn’t the only SummerSlam surprise, as Becky Lynch also made her own return to the squared circle. ‘The Man’ took the place of Sasha Banks, who was unable to appear at the event, in the SmackDown Women’s Championship match, claiming a stunning victory over Bianca Belair to walk out as the new champion.
