Brock Lesnar's next WWE appearance announced

KTNV Las Vegas 23 August, 2021 - 11:04pm

WWE is advertising Brock Lesnar to appear on the upcoming episode of Friday Night SmackDown.

The Beast Incarnate made his grand return to the company last Saturday at SummerSlam 2021. Lesnar decided to crash Roman Reigns' post-match victory celebration after The Tribal Chief beat John Cena to retain the Universal Championship. Lesnar received a massive pop from the fans in attendance at the Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas.

The Beast Incarnate went on to have a face-off with Roman Reigns, following which the Universal Champion sensibly retreated.

The look of disbelief on Paul Heyman's face upon seeing his former client was incredible and fans can't wait to see Reigns and Lesnar clash once again.

Following his grand SummerSlam return, Brock Lesnar is now being advertised to appear on this week's Friday Night SmackDown. Also advertised for the show is the new SmackDown Women's Champion Becky Lynch, who also returned at SummerSlam and squashed Bianca Belair in a shocking manner. You can watch the video of WWE's advertisement in the tweet below.

Brock Lesnar and Roman Reigns have faced each other on multiple occasions previously, including two WrestleMania main events. However, Reigns now has a completely different character and for the first time, it seems like Lesnar will be playing the role of the face.

With The Beast Incarnate being announced for SmackDown, many are wondering if he will challenge Roman Reigns for the Universal Championship at the upcoming Extreme Rules pay-per-view next month. However, Lesnar only wrestles on major shows and Extreme Rules doesn't necessarily fall in that category.

There's so much to be told in the feud between Roman Reigns and Brock Lesnar at the moment. The angle of Paul Heyman being caught between these two men will be interesting to watch.

WWE could take their time to build on this feud and probably have the two clash at WWE Crown Jewel in Saudi Arabia, announced to take place in October.

There were too many wasted matches at SummerSlam

Cageside Seats 23 August, 2021 - 02:00pm

The main card of this pay-per-view (PPV) lasted 4 hours, 7 minutes, and 41 seconds (4h 07m 41s). Here is a sorted list of the bell-to-bell times for the ten matches that took place during this event:

These times add up to 1h 45m 05s, which is roughly 42.4% of the show. For comparison’s sake, the overall match time percentage for all WWE PPVs since the start of 2013 is 53.9%.

The overall match time percentage of 42.4% for this show is the 4th smallest out of 120 WWE PPVs that I have analyzed going back to the start of 2013.

I wanted to dig a little deeper into that number so I also timed the pre-match (entrances, video packages, etc. right before a match begins) and post-match segments for each match, and compared the sum of those numbers to each match time.

Here’s an example calculation: an entry with a match time of 6m 00s, pre-match time of 3m 00s, and a post-match time of 1m 00s has a score of 60.0%, because the match time of 6m 00s is 60% of the total sum of 10m 00s for all three components.

The percentages for the 10 matches at SummerSlam are as follows:

For some context, it’s good to know that out of all 735 WWE PPV matches from 2013 through 2019, the median value here was 61.4%. 140 out of the 735 matches fell below the 50% mark.

Half of the matches at SummerSlam 2021 fell below that 50% mark. It’s never surprising when this happens with a Goldberg match, or with very quick matches that are more about an angle, like Becky Lynch’s return.

But in the case of McIntyre, Bliss, and RK-Bro, the time allocation issue raises the question of why these matches were booked on the card to begin with. The Bliss and McIntyre matches simply didn’t need to take place at SummerSlam. The RK-Bro match is a different story, of course, but the match itself fell well short of the quality it could have reached if it was instead booked on a three hour episode of Raw and received more time.

Are you surprised by any of these results, Cagesiders? Which of these matches received less (or more) time than you hoped for?

9 Wrestlers With Surprisingly Bad SummerSlam Win/Loss Records

TheSportster 22 August, 2021 - 07:00pm

There are some wrestlers who are so talented that you would think they have a good win-loss record at SummerSlam, but surprisingly that is not the case. In fact, there are even some iconic superstars who have never managed to win a match at SummerSlam. Without further ado, below are nine wrestlers with surprisingly bad win/loss records.

The Boss' only win at SummerSlam was in 2017 against Alexa Bliss, when she became RAW Women's Champion. She lost the title back to Bliss eight days later. At SummerSlam 2015, Sasha teamed with Naomi and Tamina and they were defeated in a Triple Threat Tag Team match. At SummerSlam 2016, Sasha dropped the Women's Title to Charlotte, and in 2020 Banks lost the RAW Women's Title to Asuka.

Hart lost the Intercontinental Title to Stone Cold Steve Austin at SummerSlam 1997 and his last SummerSlam match was against Ken Shamrock in 1998. Hart put on a great show but ended up losing the bout.

At SummerSlam 1990, Mr. Perfect was defeated by The Texas Tornado. In the next edition, Mr. Perfect was defeated by Bret Hart in a flawless match. His last match at SummerSlam was in 1993 when he lost by count-out to Shawn Michaels.

As a singles star, Matt Hardy had three matches. He lost to Kane at SummerSlam 2004 and also couldn’t defeat Edge in 2005. Matt Hardy at least won by disqualification in his last match at The Biggest Party Of The Summer against Mark Henry in 2008.

At SummerSlam 1991, The Million Dollar Man wrestled Virgil and lost. A year later, DiBiase teamed with Irwin R. Schyster, but they could not defeat Animal and Hawk. DiBiase's last SummerSlam match was in 1993 when he lost to Razor Ramon.

Jannetty had two matches alongside tag team partner Shawn Michaels, at the second and third edition of SummerSlam, but The Rockers lost both times. Then at SummerSlam 1993, Marty Jannetty lost to Ludvig Borga. In 1996, Jannetty teamed with Leif Cassidy, but they were defeated in a four-way elimination tag team match.

Cena starred in truly epic matches against CM Punk, AJ Styles, Seth Rollins, Brock Lesnar, Daniel Bryan, and Roman Reigns. Cena lost all of those matches, but at least he did an excellent job of putting over his opponents.

At SummerSlam 2002, Booker T teamed with Goldust and they lost to Christian and Lance Storm in a tag team match. In the following years, Booker T lost to John Cena, Batista, and Triple H.

The Charismatic Enigma falls on the negative side of the win/loss column for SummerSlam, but at least he always lives up to expectations, as he has delivered memorable matches. For example, the TLC match at SummerSlam 2009 against CM Punk and that mind-blowing TLC match at SummerSlam 2000.
