It’s been expected that Brock Lesnar will return for this year’s SummerSlam. It was recently reported that he is also being considered for Night of Champions. The plan is for him to have a two-show feud, fighting the same person at both PPVs. The current names being discussed are Cesaro and Daniel Bryan.
WWE Network subscription renewals will start around September, so WWE wants to provide as much star power as it can to the pay-per-view.
