WrestleMania 34 is now in the history books, and after this weekend's Backlash event, the WWE will start turning their attention to their next 'big four' event, SummerSlam.

The brand's annual Summer party has been somewhat lacklustre in recent years, and with such a stacked roster at their disposal, the company have the opportunity to make the show a must-see in 2018.

There are still three PPVs (including Backlash) to go before this year's SummerSlam event, and there are plenty of twists and turns left that will end up shaping the card. The WWE will, however, begin planting the seeds for the show in the next month or so, and it will be interesting to see what kind of matches they decide to book for this year's event.

With that in mind, let's take a look at five matches that could potentially main event this year's Summerslam.

5: Brock Lesnar Vs Roman Reigns

Will Lesnar and Reigns square off one last time?

Fans were genuinely stunned when Brock Lesnar defeated Roman Reigns in the main event of this year's WrestleMania and were further shocked when Lesnar picked up yet another victory over Roman at The Greatest Royal Rumble event.

It's the controversial nature of Lesnar's victory at The Greatest Royal Rumble that leads to me to believe that the WWE is not done with their feud just yet.

By the time SummerSlam rolls around, Brock Lesnar will have surpassed CM Punk's 434 run as champion, which I what I believe the WWE are now trying to do, and with that record polished off, Lesnar's reign is finally likely to come to an end.

While most fans are sick to death of seeing Lesnar and Reigns go at it by this stage, the WWE are still likely to give us one more blow-off match between the pair, and SummerSlam looks the most likely occasion to do that.
