The Beast would be back in time for SummerSlam, but who would he face?

WWE has issued a statement that while the company is allowing Brock Lesnar to compete at UFC 200 in July, he is still under contract to the company and is scheduled to appear at SummerSlam.

Like Vince McMahon had any choice.

There is no winner in this kind of situation other than Lesnar himself – where money talks and nothing is going to stop the baddest man in professional wrestling from cashing in on a huge payday from a sport in which he was a former world champion.

This is what WWE had to say about the recent news…

Brock Lesnar remains under contract to WWE, however, he has been granted a one-off opportunity to compete at UFC 200. Following this milestone event on July 9, Brock will return to WWE for SummerSlam on Sunday, August 21, live on WWE Network.

The only thing that stops Lesnar from becoming an even bigger star following his foray into the octagon is a loss or injury – which spoils his plans with Vince McMahon.

Lesnar’s legend is either going to get bigger and bolder following the event in UFC, or he is going to be a problem with WWE for booking purposes. You cannot book him as a beast if he gets handily beaten at UFC 200. In any event, Lesnar figures to make plenty of green no matter how this all breaks down.

Once he returns to the squared circle though, here are a few opponents who could be waiting to see just how big and bad he really is at SummerSlam.
