Reigns vs. Lesnar headlines SummerSlam 2022.


It's been over seven years since Brock Lesnar and Roman Reigns first clashed in the main event of WrestleMania 31. Since then, the two have wrestled in several high-profile matches, including two other WrestleMania main events. On Saturday at SummerSlam, however, the two bohemoths of WWE will wrestle what's being billed as their final match.

After defeating Lesnar at WrestleMania 38, Reigns defends his unified WWE Universal Championship against The Beast in a Last Man Standing match. You can follow our live blog of the show here.

It's WWE's second biggest show of the year, so there are plenty of other championships on the line. Becky Lynch gets her WrestleMania rematch, challenging for Bianca Belair's Raw Women's Championship. Liv Morgan hopes to defend her SmackDown Women's Championship against Ronda Rousey. The Usos' unified Tag Team Championships are up for grabs as they face The Street Profits, and Theory hopes to regain the US Championship in a bout against Bobby Lashley.

Plus, Theory is carrying around that Money in the Bank briefcase. WWE has heavily teased that he may cash it in. 

In a disappointing move, WWE pulled Seth Rollins versus Riddle from SummerSlam. That was sure to be a great match, but it's one we'll have to look forward to seeing on another show.

How to watch: Peacock, WWE Network

As you probably know by now, Peacock is the new home of WWE's pay-per-views. The WWE Network has, in essence, migrated to NBC's Peacock streaming service, and that's where you'll go to watch SummerSlam. Peacock has three tiers: Free, Premium and Premium Plus. To watch WWE content, you'll need a Premium subscription. The good news is, that'll set you back $5 a month, less than the $10 for WWE Network. 

If you're outside of the US, you'll watch SummerSlam on the WWE Network as usual.
