Last-Minute SummerSlam Rumors: Top name reportedly pulled from the show, Update on Lesnar's WWE return program with Reigns, Plan for Lashley vs. Goldberg

Sportskeeda 21 August, 2021 - 10:10pm

Welcome to the last-minute rumors for WWE SummerSlam. The jam-packed show will emanate from Allegiant Stadium in the Las Vegas suburb of Paradise, Nevada, on August 21st, 2021.

SummerSlam will feature huge matches such as Roman Reigns vs. John Cena and Goldberg vs. Bobby Lashley. There are rumors that Becky Lynch will also be making an appearance after 15 months of absence. Speaking of absences, we will discuss why a former Royal Rumble winner is not working SummerSlam.

This article will also take a look at WWE's plan for Goldberg vs Bobby Lashley and what the future will hold for John Cena if he becomes the Universal Champion:

Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter has revealed that there is a chance that John Cena will become a 17-time World Champion this Saturday at SummerSlam. Even if Cena wins the title, his title run will not be long.

Roman Reigns will likely regain the Universal Championship as he will be focusing on future programs against The Rock and Brock Lesnar. Despite there being no plans for Brock Lesnar to show up at SummerSlam, Meltzer has said that WWE is protecting Reigns, for now, to have him feud with Brock Lesnar down the line.

Roman Reigns vs. The Rock is heavily proposed as the main event of WrestleMania next year. A loss to John Cena could hurt his momentum, so it is unlikely that WWE will take that chance and have Cena win the Universal Championship.

"We just had great chemistry" - Rey Mysterio comments on being chosen to work with WWE Hall of Famer

Sportskeeda 21 August, 2021 - 05:19pm

Even though Rey Mysterio can have a stellar match with practically anybody on the WWE roster, the innovative luchador has had some of his best matches against Kurt Angle. The WWE Hall of Famer is one of Rey Mysterio's favorite wrestlers to work with and was honored to face him at WWE SummerSlam 2002.

Kurt Angle was one of Rey Mysterio's top rivals in WWE and both brought out the best in each other. Speaking on the latest edition of WWE's The Bump, Rey Mysterio discussed working with Kurt Angle and facing him at SummerSlam.

Kurt Angle and Rey Mysterio shared the ring on many big occasions, including WrestleMania 22, in a triple threat match also involving Randy Orton. The match marked Rey Mysterio's first ever World Championship win in WWE after he pinned Orton.

Rey Mysterio is tagging alongside his son Dominik Mysterio to take on The Usos for the WWE SmackDown Tag Team Championship. The Usos captured the titles from the Mysterios on the WWE Money in the Bank kick-off show and the two teams will face off again tonight at WWE SummerSlam.

However, the Mysterios have faced some bumps in the road as Dominik has been making one too many mistakes in recent weeks, possibly being pushed by the idea of getting out of his father's shadow. Many fans believe this could potentially be a hint at WWE planting seeds for a break-up between the father and son duo down the line.

Check out Sportskeeda Wrestling's WWE SummerSlam preview as Sid Pullar III was joined by Kenny "The Starmaker" Bolin to run down the matches announced for the show.

T-Mobile data breach could be much worse than previously thought

Cageside Seats 20 August, 2021 - 04:35pm

An additional 5.3m T-Mobile customers are affected

Earlier this week, a hacker posted on an underground forum in an attempt to sell a pool of data on the company's customers which reportedly included their social security numbers (SSN), phone numbers, names, addresses, unique IMEI numbers and driver's license information.

Now though, T-Mobile has confirmed in a new post on its site that 7.8m of its current postpaid or on contract customers did have all of the data mentioned above stolen as a result of the breach. However, the hacker was also able to acquire their IMEI (International Mobile Equipment Identity) that is assigned to every mobile device as well as their IMSI (International Mobile Subscriber Identity) that is used to identify their SIM card.

While a cybercriminal could use the exposed personal information of affected T-Mobile customers to commit identity theft, their IMSI information could potentially be used in SIM swapping attacks where an attacker takes over a user's phone number to intercept two-factor authentication (2FA) codes as well as other data being sent to their smartphone.

The accounts of 667k former T-Mobile customers were exposed as well though thankfully, former Sprint prepaid and Boost Mobile customers didn't have their information stolen during the breach. Unfortunately, the same can't be said for 52k Metro by T-Mobile customers who also had their information stolen.

Both T-Mobile and he FCC are currently investigating the data breach and so far, one class-action lawsuit has been filed against the mobile carrier.

Current T-Mobile customers who are concerned that their data may have been exposed can visit this page for more information on how to sign up for the company's Scam Shield which offers scam-blocking protection and other anti-scam features. The company is also offering a free two year subscription to McAfee's ID Theft Protection service to affected customers.

We'll likely hear more regarding the breach and how the hacker was able to penetrate T-Mobile's systems once the company and the FFC's investigation is complete.

WWE Champion Bobby Lashley Responds to Roman Reigns Claiming the WWE Universal Title is More Important

ComicBook.com 20 August, 2021 - 03:28pm

Roman Reigns made a bold claim earlier this week while speaking with FOX Sports' Ryan Satin, claiming that his current reign as WWE Universal Champion (which is just 11 days away from reaching a full year) has made the SmackDown title the most prestigious title in all of pro wrestling. Reigns said, "...what's special about this run that I'm on and the stories that I've told in just under a year now, I have made the Universal Championship, the most important championship in WWE, the most important championship in sports entertainment."

But there's another world champion working for the WWE that might have something to say about that. WWE Champion Bobby Lashley spoke with ComicBook on Friday a day before his SummerSlam match with Goldberg and was asked about "The Tribal Chief's" boasting.

"He's supposed to make that comment," Lashley said with a laugh. "But at the end of the day, what's the company called? (Holds up the title) There you go."

Lashley also discussed his match with the WWE Hall of Famer — "A lot of people have their speculation and their opinions about the Goldberg matchup, but how I look at is if you look at any top guy, you look at some of the people that he's beat. To have those names like The Undertaker, the Goldbergs, you need those names. Like Ric Flair said, in order to be the man, you've got to beat the man. So Goldberg was the man. Even to this day, Monday Night Raw when Goldberg came out, the crowd went insane. That just shows that he still has the it factor. He's still the man. For me that's good because I need those names to take out to cement myself as WWE Champion and put that in the history books as a staple."

Check out the full lineup for the 2021 SummerSlam event below! The show takes place on Saturday at Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas.
